Life Extension Super R-Lipoic Acid Description
Bio-Enhanced™ Active Form of Lipoic Acid
A newly discovered form of R-lipoic acid is being hailed as the "next-generation" antioxidant powerhouse. This breakthrough occurred by converting the biologically active "R" form of lipoic acid to sodium-R-lipoic acid, which is absorbed up to 21 times better in the body than pure R-lipoic acid.1 Not only does the new lipoic acid formulation reach higher peak blood levels, it also achieves them up to 12 times faster than R-lipoic acid, ensuring rapid uptake from the plasma into the tissues. A recent study showed that oral ingestion of Super R-lipoic acid reached peak plasma concentrations within just 10-20 minutes of supplementation.
