Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid is the Latest and Best Form of Lipoic Acid on the Market

Lipoic acid is a natural antioxidant which helps protect your body against oxidative stress caused by higher-than-normal glucose levels. Alpha-lipoic acid comes in two different forms that have very different effects on your body. The first and most effective form is R-lipoic acid, which is the form familiar to your body. R-lipoic acid is the form for which lipoic acid’s renowned antioxidant effect is known. The other form of lipoic acid is known as S-lipoic acid. S-lipoic acid is made by chemical manufacturing and the absorption by your body is extremely limited. Average alpha-lipoic acid supplements are made of the “S” and “R” forms in a 1:1 ratio. This means that a 100 mg alpha-lipoic acid supplement contains only 50 mg of the highly absorbable R-lipoic acid.

Your body usually makes and consumes only R-lipoic acid. This active form of lipoic acid is a high-power free-radical scavenger, helps to support healthy inflammatory response, and has also been proven to be more much more effective than the combined “R” and “S” forms that ruin most alpha-lipoic acid supplements.

Life Extension constantly searches for the latest technology in nutrition. Through their thorough development and research they have discovered the new form of R-lipoic acid which is being called the next great antioxidant.

Life Extension’s Super R-Lipoic Acid has demonstrated superior bioavailability, stability, and potency compared to your average alpha-lipoic acid supplement. This latest discovery turns the highly-absorbable R-lipoic acid to sodium-R-lipoic acid. In a recent human study, this new form of alpha lipoic acid had a 10–30 times higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid. This new form of lipoic acid formulation achieves higher peak blood levels, while also achieving them sooner. This ensures fast transfer from your plasma into your tissue. A recent study has also shown that oral ingestion of Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid reaches its peak plasma concentrations within 10–20 minutes of consumption.

Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid is unlike any other form of lipoic acid on the market because it is more stable in your body. The elevated stability of this cutting-edge formula is the reason for its greater absorption and bioavailability compared to an average R-lipoic acid supplement.

The unmatched antioxidant power of R-lipoic acid is already very well known for its ability to support healthy, normal mitochondrial function. Now, Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid provides you with even more powerful benefits for preserving youthful cellular energy levels.
