Frequently Asked Questions

Q:What is Lipoic Acid?
A:

Lipoic Acid is a vitamin-like substance naturally produced by the human body. In addition to neutralizing dangerous free radicals, lipoic Acid is also essential for the production of cellular energy.*

Q:What is the difference between R-lipoic acid and Alpha Lipoic acid?
A:

Alpha-lipoic acid consists of a 50/50 mixture of the R- (natural) and S- (unnatural) forms (enantiomers). 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.

Q:How soon will I see results from supplementing with R-Lipoic Acid?
A:

It will vary depending on your current nutritional state, dosage, and current health. We often hear that our customers “feel better” and experience “clearer thinking” and “enhanced well being” within 2 weeks. For optimal results, we recommend you take our R-Lipoic Acid daily for at least two months to evaluate their benefits.

Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic Acid

GeroNova's Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic acid has demonstrated superior bioavailability, stability and potency for a variety of potent health benefits. We convert the biologically active "R" form of lipoic acid to Sodium-R-Lipoic acid - which, in a recent human study achieved 10–30 times higher peak blood levels than pure, unstabilized R-Lipoic acid. Not only does Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic acid reach higher peak blood levels, it also achieves them sooner, ensuring rapid uptake from the plasma into the tissues. Unlike other forms of lipoic acid, Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic acid is more stable in the body. The increased stability of this enhanced formulation is the reason for its greater absorption and bioavailability compared with R-lipoic acid.
