Pure Encapsulations R-Lipoic Acid (stabilized), 120 ct
Pure Encapsulations R-Lipoic Acid Stabalized provides a highly stable and bioavailable form of R-lipoic acid, with the potential for enhanced antioxidant protection and metabolic support
Pure Encapsulations R-Lipoic Acid Stabalized is a stabalized sodium salt of R-Lipoic acid. Sodium R-alpha-lipoic acid is a highly bioavailable and stabilized form of R-lipoic acid. Regular R-lipoic acid is heat sensitive and may polymerize extensively, decreasing its absorption significantly.
In real-time stability tests, sodium R-lipoic remained stable for 12 months.The natural R isomer of alpha-lipoic acid may provide enhanced antioxidant activity, energy production, and general metabolic function. In a recent in vitro study at the Buck Institute for Aging in California, R-lipoic acid moderated oxidative stress in neurons. Additional studies suggest that R-lipoic acid offers support for glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle. A University of California Berkeley study indicates that R-lipoic acid may be protective against age-related oxidative stress in the liver. Furthermore, a study at Oregon State University established a potential role for R-lipoic acid in protecting the heart from age-related oxidative stress.
If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product. R-lipoic acid may cause gastrointestinal discomfort in some individuals and should always be taken with meals. In rare cases, R-lipoic acid may also cause skin rash in sensitive individuals.
People taking anti-diabetic medications or medications for thyroid disease should be monitored by a health care professional.
