High Dose R-Lipoic Acid is the natural, effective form of lipoic acid and a powerful antioxidant. It promotes blood sugar metabolism, nerve health and youthful cells. AOR was the first in the world to offer 95% pure R-lipoic acid. High Dose R-Lipoic Acid helps to promote healthy glucose metabolism and provides antioxidants for the maintenance of good health. AOR’s High Dose R-Lipoic Acid provides only the natural ‘R’ form of this vital antioxidant produced in the body, unlike most alpha-lipoic acid supplements which also contain equal amounts of the synthetic, inactive ‘S’ form. AOR’s High Dose R-Lipoic Acid is now in delayed release capsules to enhance its stability and effectiveness. Lipoic acid is a versatile antioxidant known for its ability to protect the brain and nerve cells from free radicals and heavy metals that promote cognitive and neurodegenerative diseases. Lipoic acid is known as the “captain of the antioxidants” due to its ability to recycle and recharge other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Numerous studies have shown that lipoic acid can balance blood sugar and repair nerves damaged by diabetes. Additionally, this powerful anti-aging nutrient has been shown to mimic some of the effects of caloric restriction, the only proven method of extending health span and lifespan. It does so by protecting the mitochondria against free radical damage. Due to its action on the mitochondria it can revive damaged cells, especially those found in nerves and in the liver. It is a powerful partner for glutathione, the most powerful antioxidant produced in the body.
