The simplest way to explain lipoic acid is: R-Lipoic Acid is the good guy, and S-Lipoic Acid is the bad guy. While R-lipoic acid has the powerful effects of a great antioxidant, S-Lipoic acid can, at times, counteract all the helpful properties of R-Lipoic Acid. The benefits of R-Lipoic Acid are plentiful, including the reduction of iron build-up in the brain (which is thought to contribute to Parkinson's disease), detoxifying the liver, and reducing antibiotic-induced damage to cochlear ear tissue.
R-Lipoic Acid is also helpful in promoting healthy blood sugar metabolism. While most supplements on the market are a 50/50 split of R- and S-Lipoic Acids, AOR's formula is specifically designed to ensure the benefits of the R-Lipoic acid shines through and is not interfered with by its foe, S-Lipoic Acid.
