Preserve youthful cellular energy

R-Lipoic Acid is a potent antioxidant that supports healthy mitochondria, preserves youthful cellular energy, and helps protect against oxidative stress. And our R-Lipoic Acid is more bioavailable, stable, and potent than traditional R-lipoic acid supplements.

The human body normally produces and uses the “R” form of lipoic acid. This active form, R-lipoic acid, supports healthy inflammatory response, is a potent free radical scavenger, and has been shown to be more potent than the combined “R” and “S” forms that ordinarily comprise alpha-lipoic acid supplements.1-11 R-Lipoic Acid provides more of the active “R” form of lipoic acid than any other supplement, helping you reach peak plasma concentrations within just 10 to 20 minutes.
