R+ Lipoic Acid Capsules from Advanced Orthomolecular Research may promote the production of helpful antioxidants like glutathione. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is an efficient fat and water-soluble antioxidant. It is known to be a cofactor in the production of energy and might increase the production of glutathione‚ an important antioxidant that is present in the body.
This supplement from Advanced Orthomolecular Research provides R+ Lipoic acid‚ a biologically active form of alpha lipoic acid. ALA is said to have the ability to recycle vitamins E and C‚ both of which are antioxidant providers. It may also support the synthesis of carbohydrates and aid in the glucose metabolism process within the cells.
The antioxidants provided by this supplement might also support certain aspects of a heart healthy lifestyle. Free radicals mostly originate from the mitochondria‚ where energy is produced. As we age‚ the mitochondria loses its ability to produce energy and tends to produce more free radicals.

Ratings & ReviewsReview This Item
Overall Rating for R+ Lipoic Acid - 90 Capsules
By HUY TRINH NAM DT
from San Jose
Good for healthy metabolism.
R+Lipoic Acid by Advanced Orthomolecular Research is definitely much better than the ratings would imply. I take one capsule daily with my morning meal and it gives me more energy throughout the day. The two negative reviews below mention capsule contents shrinking and a certain smell to the capsules. I have experienced this as well. But neither issue has caused me any alarm or seemed to affect the efficacy of the product.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
