Doctor’s Best Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid contains BioEnhanced Na-RALA, the sodium salt of R-Lipoic acid (RLA). Unlike pure RLA, BioEnhanced Na-RALA is a stabilized form of RLA that won’t degrade at high temperatures, is more bioavailable than regular RLA and has no solvent residues.* Lipoic acid (LA) plays an important role in glucose metabolism and energy production. LA, when manufactured, occurs in two molecular forms, designated “R” and “S.” The “S” form does not occur naturally in living systems and studies clearly indicate that the “R” form, RLA, is more biologically active than the “S” form. This formula includes the vitamin biotin to further support lipoic acid's metabolic benefits.*
Alpha-lipoic acid is a naturally occurring vitamin-like nutrient that has been intensely investigated as a beneficial agent for a variety of bodily functions involving the nervous, cardiovascular, immune, and detoxification system.
It is produced in small amounts in the liver and other body tissues, where it is needed by enzymes to catalyze numerous essential chemical reactions in the body.
ALA is essential inside the mitochondria of cells, where it is needed to metabolize glucose and direct calories into energy production
ALA is considered to be a multimodal supplement because, aside from its enzymatic role in energy production, it acts by multiple mechanisms and displays diverse health-enhancing and antioxidant properties
