Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid

by Life Extension

Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid helps protect against oxidative stress generated by high glucose levels.*

Alpha-lipoic acid consists of two different forms. The R form is the biologically active component (native to the body) that is responsible for lipoic acid' phenomenal antioxidant effect. The S form is produced from chemical manufacture and is not very biologically active. Typical alpha-lipoic acid supplements consist of the R and S form in a 50/50 ratio. That means a 100 mg alpha-lipoic acid supplement is providing 50 mg of the biologically active R form.*

The human body normally produces and uses the R form of lipoic acid. R-lipoic acid, significantly supports healthy inflammatory response, is a potent free-radical scavenger and has been shown to be more potent than the combined R and S forms that comprise most alpha-lipoic acid supplements.*

Through dedicated research and development, the newer form of R-lipoic acid is being seen as the œnext-generation antioxidant powerhouse.

Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid has demonstrated superior bioavailability, stability, and potency for a variety of health benefits.

Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid converts the biologically active œR 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 R-lipoic acid.*

This newer lipoic acid formulation reach higher peak blood levels, ensuring rapid uptake from the plasma into the tissues.*

A recent study showed that oral ingestion of Super R-Lipoic Acid reached peak plasma concentrations within just 10“20 minutes of supplementation.*

Unlike other forms of lipoic acid, Life Extension Super 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.*

The superior antioxidant effects of R-lipoic acid are already well known for supporting healthy mitochondrial function.*

Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid provides even more potent benefits for preserving youthful cellular energy levels.*
