Source Naturals R-Lipoic Acid -- 100 mg - 120 Tablets

Suitable for Vegetarians. Source Naturals R-Lipoic Acid is a natural form of lipoic acid that your body can synthesize and safely metabolize. It may be better absorbed and more effective as antioxidant than alpha-lipoic acid. R-lipoic acid by itself may be 10 times more effective than other forms of lipoic acid and has been called the "mitochondrial antioxidant" because it is a key component of mitochondrial dehydrogenase complexes which may help to slow the natural aging process in animals. Also animal research has shown that R-lipoic acid can increase or maintainlevels of other antioxidants including CoQ10 vitamin C vitamin E and glutathione which may decline with age more effectively than other forms of lipoic acid.

" I've read several articles on how this supplement is "so much" better than lipoic acid but I can't say that I've noticed any difference. Maybe the long term benefits will be better but can't say much for now. I've been taking this on and off for years. "

Great Product
 September 16, 2008
" My physician recommended I take R-Lipoic acid rather than alpha-lipoic acid; and he specified Source Naturals as a "good brand". My health has significantly improved since I was given a prescribed supplement regimen. "
