My first foray into R-Lipoic Acid by Genceutic Naturals and I was extemely pleased. I'd heard of Alpha Lipoic Acid but not added it to my supplement stack until I decided to look into the benefits-suppporting healthy blood sugars, scavenging free radicals, supporting healthy mitochondrial function, preservation of cellular energy, protection against oxidative stress to name a few. Whats more is the R form is even more bioavailable so one would require less compared to Alpha Lipoic acid which contains a mix about 50-50 of the R(bioavailable form ) and S (not so bioavailable). According to Genceutic Naturals site, this form reaches maximum absorption up to 4x higher than Alpha Lipoic Acid. Serving size is 1 capsule containing Bio-Enhanced® Stabilized Na-RALA as Sodium R-Lipoate supplying 240 mg of R-Lipoic Acid.
We've used Genceutic Naturals for two decades now. Their product quality and effectiveness is never a disappointment. We added this to our supplement regimen while supporting fatty liver reversal. It helps regulate blood sugar and the release of this product feels steady compared to other products. I personally have had reflux from other R-alpha lipoic supplements, but I have not problem with this one. The standardization of the active ingredient is the best on the market. And the price is very competitive with other brands. Thumbs up to this great product!
These are really good. I was shocked I hadn't learned about the health benefits of r-lipoic acid until the last few years. It has a funky taste and it's similar to after eating a lot of asparagus when nature calls, but it definitely keeps the immune system primed with the way it helps recycle vitamin c and glutathione. Great size, just make sure to store it somewhere dark and cool.
