An excessive amount of oxidative stress in the body can negatively impact its functioning in several ways. Especially as you get older‚ the nervous system‚ liver‚ and heart may be attacked by free radicals that can potentially harm your cells and cause them not to work properly.
Fortunately‚ R-lipoic acid may provide antioxidant support to vital organs‚ as well as neurons. Alpha-lipoic acid contains a natural R isomer that contributes to this benefit. Its antioxidant properties actually stem from its potential to spur your body's own production and utilization of vitamin C and E.
This naturally occurring form of ALA can also work to boost memory and metabolism‚ due to its support for mitochondrial function. The mitochondria are considered the powerhouses of the cell because they are responsible for cellular energy production‚ and R-lipoic acid may serve as a needed cofactor to many of its enzymes. Finally‚ R-lipoic acid may also support eye health and clearer vision.
Good dietary sources of lipoic acid include organ meats and dark green leafy vegetables; however‚ a supplement may be a more convenient solution for you. Unlike other forms of R-lipoic acid‚ R-Lipoic Acid (Stabilized) by Pure Encapsulations provides stabilized R-lipoic acid with sodium salt‚ which may be more bioavailable and easier for your body to absorb; this is because it is less sensitive to heat and less likely to bind molecules together and create polymers that discourage absorption.
Take one or two vegetable capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 120-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' R-Lipoic Acid (Stabilized) should last for two to four months.
