Alpha Lipoic Acid (RS-ALA) (Thioctic Acid)
*Product image may differ from product received.
RS-alpha lipoic acid (also known as RS-ALA or thioctic acid) is a racemic mixture of isomers of a sulfur-containing organic acid powerful antioxidant, and essential component of aerobic metabolism. *NOTE: These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
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 racemic RS- form is more inexpensive to refine, as a result.
Supplementation of RS-alpha lipoic acid may help support a healthy metabolism.
Alpha lipoic acid has an unpleasant chemical burning taste. Capsules are generally preferred.
