AOR’s R-Lipoic Acid 300 mg is the world’s first pure R-lipoic acid. This powerful healthy-aging nutrient has been shown to mimic some of the effects of caloric restriction, a proven dieting method that promotes healthy aging and mitochondrial function. R-lipoic acid is a versatile antioxidant known for its ability to support the protection of the brain and nerve cells from free radicals and heavy metals such as iron, which has been linked to cognitive and neurodegenerative diseases. High doses of R-lipoic acid have also been shown to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels as well as to promote the protection of the nerves in the presence of sugar and support weight loss.
AOR’s pure R-Lipoic Acid 300 mg delivers the most effective form of this valuable antioxidant without the negative actions of lipoic acid’s S (-) form. Regular doses of lipoic acid are recommended for maintaining overall general health while high doses of R( ) Lipoic Acid are recommended to promote healthy blood sugar levels and support neurological health.
R-Lipoic Acid 300 mg contains 300 mg of this powerful antioxidant in a single capsule to enhance its stability and effectiveness. AOR’s R-Lipoic Acid 300 provides the natural active form- R alpha rather than inactive S alpha.*
