Vitacost R-Alpha Lipoic Acid Stabilized RALA - Standardized -- 210 mg - 60 Capsules

A superior biologically active form of lipoic acid. What is R-Alpha lipoic acid? R-Alpha lipoic acid (RLA) is the naturally occurring form of lipoic acid a nutrient present in every cell of the body essential to chemical reactions that allow the body to produce energy.* The body produces very little alpha lipoic acid and it is difficult to obtain sufficient quantities through diet alone.  . Lipoic acid has been called “a universal antioxidant” because it’s effective as an antioxidant in water-based environments such as blood yet its reduced metabolite dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA) is also effective in protecting fatty tissues and membranes.*.  . The "R" form is considered the biologically active form identical to that produced by the body. Unlike other forms of lipoic acid RLA is bioavailable and more stable in the body.  . How does R-Alpha lipoic acid support health? May promote cardiovascular health by protecting against free radical damage.*. Regenerates the antioxidant activity of vitamin C vitamin E and coenzyme Q10.*. May increase levels of glutathione the body’s most important antioxidant.*. Why choose Vitacost R-Alpha Lipoic Acid? R-Alpha lipoic acid stabilized RALA. One bottle contains 60 one-capsule servings. Exceptional quality at an extraordinary value. About Vitacost.

"Try finding this R-ALA product in 300 mg anywhere, in-store OR online - YOU CAN'T!!
300 mg, what I've been told, IS the optimal daily amount needed.
SO, thank you, Vitacost, for getting the best version of this product back out there!"

R-Lipoic Acid is Economically Wiser
 May 28, 2007
"I can easily tell which days I take it and the days that I don't. It is very economical because it boots the staying power of CQ10 and other antioxidants I would be trowing money down the drain if I didn't take in combination. I feel and believe R Lipoic to be vastly superior to the usual Lipoic acid, R-Lipoic Acid is far more natural and assumable and the 300 mg is the minimum for me, as I have nerve damage. I feel the liquid R- Lipoic Acid is even better, but it cost tons more so this product is the best value by leaps and bounds."
