  • Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) has two forms—designated as R-lipoic acid (R-ALA) and S-lipoic acid (S-ALA)—that are mirror images of each other. Naturally occurring ALA is in the R-ALA form‚ and functions as an essential cofactor for many of the enzymes involved in energy production.

    Scientific research points to the neuroprotective effects of alpha-lipoic acid‚ which are a result of its potent antioxidant effects in both fat- and water-soluble environments. Lipoic acid works to protect your brain cells from the damaging effect of toxic chemicals. However‚ one study found that R-lipoic acid (not S-lipoic acid or the racemic mixture) was the most neuroprotective‚ meaning that it’s the best at protecting neurons from injury or degeneration.

    Dietary supplements of ALA are generally comprised either of R-ALA by itself or a mixture of both types of alpha-lipoic. Studies indicate the R-ALA form appears to be better absorbed‚ with twice as much R-ALA appearing in the bloodstream after an oral dose when compared to S-ALA; this means that the body is able to utilize the former more effectively.

    Clinical trials indicate that it can help improve or prevent the cognitive dysfunction that can come with aging‚ and may similarly slow the development of Alzheimer’s disease. It has also been associated with preventing migraines‚ reducing inflammation‚ and treating metabolic syndrome.

    Since R-lipoic acid is the most active and effective form of alpha-lipoic acid‚ Thorne Research chose to create a dedicated supplement. Each capsule supports healthy neurological functioning. In addition‚ this formula is also essential to the health of your liver‚ eyes‚ and nervous system. To provide the most bioavailable solution to an ALA deficiency‚ R-Lipoic Acid Capsules are bound to sodium. One bottle should last for one to two months at the recommended dosage. This product is also vegetarian and gluten-free.

    Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

    Working !

    This is a powerful R-Lipoic Acid by Thorne Research. Its so powerful that I cant really take it in an empty stomach. My naturopath doctor recommended to take it in the morning in the empty stomach. But I cant do it because it makes me too hyper. So now I take it with a breakfast. And its working well. I believe its powerful good quality R-Lipoic Acid.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great product!

    This was recommended to my by Dr. Ron Rosedale for insulin resistance. He said Throne makes good products with few fillers for sensitive people like me. A healthier product.

    Helps battle Hypoglycemia

    I love my caffeine but among other things (like making you more hungry and making you hold onto unwanted weight) caffeine also really messes with your blood sugar levels. In the morning when your blood sugar is already low an espresso can send it plummeting into the familiar foggy-thinking lack of visual focus and snappish behavior that those with hypoglycemia enjoy. Taking one R-Lipoic Acid every morning helps my blood sugar stay level so I can avoid this potentially dangerous condition.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
