R-Lipoic Acid (RLA) is an alpha lipoic supplement‚ meaning that it's an organosulfur compound. Research and studies have been done on RLA‚ suggesting that the substance serves to promote the healthy function of numerous bodily functions on the cellular level. For example‚ an R-lipoic acid supplement ends up playing a role in four mitochondrial enzyme factors. As such‚ studies have noted that R-lipoic acid is a cofactor in aerobic metabolism‚ the process by which our bodies convert biochemical energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is responsible for supplying and transporting energy for our cells‚ which in turn allows for the continuation of numerous metabolic process.
Alpha-lipoic acid supplements have also been purported to feature antioxidant properties. In essence‚ an antioxidant is any substance with the potential to "hunt" for free radicals in our body. These free radicals are potentially harmful atoms that have unpaired electrons. Since antioxidants‚ like Progressive Labs alpha-lipoic acid supplements‚ could potentially protect us from the damage of free radicals‚ it's possible that they offer our bodies cellular protection.
R-lipoic acid is also possibly effective against memory loss‚ certain types of cardiovascular symptoms‚ and it also helps restore normal vitamin E and vitamin C levels to the body.
Progressive Labs' alpha lipoic acid supplement features a form of RLA called K-RALA®. This type of RLA is in potassium form‚ meaning that it potentially features a much higher bioavailability than normal. Bioavailability refers to the extent and duration of absorption for a substance in the body. So‚ a high bioavailability means that it absorbs much easier and can sustain itself long in our bodies.
Progressive Labs has been a family owned manufacturer and distributor of nutritional supplements for 40 years. Progressive Labs has supplied over 25‚000 customers with professional grade vitamins‚ herbals‚ and dietary supplements.
