R-Lipoic Acid (stabilized) - This potassium salt of R-lipoic acid provides a highly stable and bioavailable form of R-lipoic acid, with the potential for enhanced antioxidant protection and metabolic support. Potassium-R-lipoate is a highly bioavailable and stable potassium salt of R-lipoic acid. Regular R-lipoic acid is heat sensitive and may polymerize extensively, decreasing its absorption significantly. In fact, regular R-lipoic acid may need to be refrigerated and may only have a shelf life of six months.

What Is It?

Sodium R-alpha-lipoic acid is a highly bioavailable and stabilized form of R-lipoic acid. Regular R-lipoic acid is heat sensitive and may polymerize extensively, decreasing its absorption significantly. In real-time stability tests, sodium R-lipoic remained stable for 12 months. The natural R isomer of alpha-lipoic acid may provide enhanced antioxidant activity, energy production, and general metabolic function.*

Uses For R-lipoic acid (stabilized)

Nerve Health: In a recent in vitro study at the Buck Institute for Aging in California, R-lipoic acid moderated oxidative stress in neurons. A related study demonstrates the ability of R-lipoic acid to support memory tasks in animals by supporting mitochondrial function and protecting cells from free radicals.*

Glucose Metabolism: An animal study suggested that R-lipoic acid supported healthy glucose metabolism. Additional studies suggest that R-lipoic acid promotes glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle.*

Antioxidant Support: A University of California Berkeley study indicates that R-lipoic acid may be protective against age-related oxidative stress in the liver. Furthermore, a study at Oregon State University established a potential role for R-lipoic acid in protecting the heart from age-related oxidative stress.*
