Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic Acid vegetarian caps
Unsurpassed Stability and Absorption
GeroNova’s Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic Acid in the form of Na RALA has demonstrated superior bio-availability, stability and potency.
The primary benefit of the completely water-soluble salt is that high blood and tissue levels can be achieved rapidly. Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic Acid may deliver all the health benefits of lipoic acid; antioxidant protection and efficient energy production and may result in an increased sense of well-being and improved health-span for regular consumers.*
Our proprietary stabilization process converts the biologically active, natural “R” form of lipoic acid to sodium-R-lipoic acid (Na RALA), which, in a recent human study achieved 40 times higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid.
R-Lipoic Acid (from Sodium R-Lipoic Acid)* 100 mg.
Hypromellose, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Sodium Bicarbonate, Silicon Dioxide, magnesium stearate.

Note Regarding Sodium
R-Lipoic acid in the form of the sodium salt (Na-RALA) contains 8-9% sodium. However, one serving of this product contains less than 1% of the Daily Value for sodium, an insignificant contribution to dietary sources. Research suggests that sodium may impact blood pressure in some individuals only when it is consumed as sodium chloride (NaCl, table salt) and not in other forms. The sodium in this product is unlikely to affect blood pressure levels.
