Facilitating proper metabolic processes is essential when it comes to generating energy for your body. Without a well-functioning metabolism‚ the food we eat would not be converted into the energy we use every day. R-Lipoic Acid capsules from Douglas Labs may be able to help with these processes and more.
Douglas Labs’ R-Lipoic Acid capsules are completely vegetarian and contain 100 mg of R-Lipoic Acid in each serving. R-Lipoic Acid serves as a cofactor in the metabolism of proteins‚ carbohydrates‚ and fats. Additionally‚ this helpful nutrient may be able to scavenge for free radicals that can damage sensitive cells and tissue through oxidation.
R-Lipoic Acid does this by participating in various multi-enzyme complexes. These enzymes are able to jumpstart metabolic functions for the proper production of energy in your body. Finally‚ R-Lipoic Acid may play a particular role in blood glucose disposal.
Douglas Labs R-Lipoic Acid capsules contain no corn‚ dairy‚ gluten‚ milk‚ starch‚ sugar‚ yeast‚ soy‚ or artificial additives.

Overall Rating for R-Lipoic Acid (stabilized) - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
By Jan H

I can't speak highly enough of R-Lipoic Acid by Douglas Laboratories. It has been helpful in lowering blood pressure, lowering sugar levels and has even stabilized my sugar levels when I eat sweets. R-Lipoic Aicd is truly amazing! Have been taking this for several weeks and noticed an improvement in my health within one week. But that is my body, however. I can't say that it would work that quickly for someone else. I just know that it worked relatively quickly for me, faster than I expected. I am excited to see what the long term effects will bring.
Reasonably priced; free shipping (thanks to PureFormulas);
Would like to see this offered in 150 or 200 mg but that is up to the manufacturer not PureFormulas.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.

I hope that this review will help someone and not just claim it is good but not give reasons why. I was taking 300 mg of a different brand of RLA but the high dose gave me digestive problems. I switched to R-Lipoic Acid by Douglas Laboratories and have been very pleased. Douglas Laboratories recommends taking with food while the other on an empty stomach. Big difference. RLA is a phenomenal supplement that I cannot recommend highly enough. It has helped lower my blood pressure, heal skin conditions quicker, even helped with my varicose veins. It has helped lower sugar levels. I can feel the difference, and what is even more amazing is that when I do consume a cookie or some kind of sweet, I no longer experience the sugar fluctuation. Things are definitely improving. But most noticeable has been my inflammation levels. They are much lower. I have rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions and despite numerous dietary changes including eliminating sugar among other things, I could not get a grip on my inflammation. RLA has been a phenomenal help. I am stunned at how one supplement can be so helpful in lowering inflammation. This is truly a God-send.
Dosage (not too high nor low)

What is the difference between R-Lipoic Acid and Alpha Lipoic Acid since manufacturers seem to offer both. Is one better than the other for high cholesterol and overall cardiovascular health?A
PureFormulas on 5/14/2015
Alpha-lipoic acid consists of a 50/50 mixture of the R- (natural) and S- (unnatural) forms. It is the most widely available commercial form of lipoic acid. R-Lipoic Acid is the form of lipoic acid that occurs naturally in plants, animals and the body and is responsible for the specific beneficial effects of alpha lipoic acid. Because R-Lipoic Acid is a natural form, is significantly more potent than Alpha Lipoic because the body “recognizes” it and “knows” how to use it. As for which would be better for your health needs, we ask that you speak with your health care provider.
