Product Details

NOTICE!  Notice: R-ALA (R-Alpha Lipoic Acid) has a low melting temperature such that the product you receive will likely not be a free flowing powder. No loss of potency or efficacy of R-ALA occurs after melting, however, once melted R-ALA will become a contiguous semi-solid rubbery mass. You may consider using scissors or a sharp knife to cut off from the R-ALA mass and weigh your desired serving amount.
Note: Our current batch of R-ALA is already a semi-solid rubbery mass.

R-alpha lipoic acid (also known as R-ALA or thioctic acid) is a sulfur-containing organic acid powerful antioxidant, and an essential component of aerobic metabolism.

Alpha lipoic acid exists in two stereoisomers, the biologically active R-ALA, in addition to S-ALA, which is not produced in the human body. R-alpha lipoic acid is produced synthetically, and chemical manufacturing processes yield both the R- and S- isomers. The pure R- form is more costly to refine, as a result.

Supplementation of R-alpha lipoic acid may help support a healthy metabolism.

Alpha lipoic acid has an unpleasant chemical burning taste. Capsules are generally preferred.
