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.*
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.
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.
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.
