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.
