Source Naturals R-Lipoic Acid is a natural form of lipoic acid that your body can synthesize and safely metabolize. It may be better absorbed and more effective as an antioxidant than alpha-lipoic acid. R-lipoic acid by itself may be 10 times more effective than other forms of lipoic acid and has been called the "mitochondrial antioxidant" because it is a key component of mitochondrial dehydrogenase complexes‚ which may help to slow the natural aging process in animals. Also‚ animal research has shown that R-lipoic acid can increase or maintain levels of other antioxidants including CoQ10‚ vitamin C‚ vitamin E and glutathione‚ which may decline with age‚ more efficiently than other forms of lipoic acid.

Overall Rating for R-Lipoic Acid 50 mg - 30 Tablets
By Ann Reed
I didn't realize that these R-Lipoic Acid tablets were only 50 mg tablets. Previously I used 300 mg is a gel capsule. The bottle was stuffed full with cotton. I'd prefer that the manufacturer use less plastic and make a smaller bottle.
I understand that R alpha lipoic acid is much better absorbed that plan ALA, so am happy to get it at a very fair price and free shipping.
The low dosage.
