AOR’s R-Lipoic Acid helps to promote healthy glucose metabolism and provides antioxidants for the maintenance of good health. R-lipoic acid is a powerful, high-quality antioxidant that offers many benefits to the body such as maintaining healthy nerve formation, promoting brain health and increased energy formation in the mitochondria, and supporting overall health. Antioxidants also benefit the body by neutralizing and removing free radicals from the bloodstream which can slow the aging process.
AOR’s 95% pure R-Lipoic Acid delivers the most effective form of this valuable antioxidant without the counterproductive activities of S-lipoic acid. R-lipoic acid is a powerful, natural, and well-rounded antioxidant for those looking for supplements that support healthy aging.
AOR’s R-Lipoic Acid has the natural ‘R’ form of this vital nutrient produced in the body, unlike other supplements which also contain equal amounts of the synthetic, inactive ‘S’ form. The natural ‘R’ form is more potent than the S-form, and that in some cases the S-form interferes with R-lipoic acids actions in the body.*
