R-alpha lipoic acid is produced naturally on a cellular level and can be gained through certain foods, including spinach, broccoli, potatoes, liver, and kidney. In the body, it functions as a powerful antioxidant, lessening the oxidative stress of free radicals. And as a supplement, it may give your body the extra boost in overall health and fortitude it needs to help it thrive amidst the many toxins and stressors it faces daily. Moreover, R-alpha lipoic acid helps chelate intracellular and extracellular mercury, adding to its cleansing and vivifying properties for your body.
Please Note: This product is also sold under the professional label as Alpha Science R-Alpha Lipoic Acid 2.
Conventional chemical syntheses of lipoic acid generally produce R- and S- enantiomers together; however, Omega Alpha has managed to process their lipoic acid such that it is composed of over 99% of the bioavailable R-isomer. R-alpha lipoic acid and its reduced form, dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), are strong reductants, and can help generate glutathione, coenzyme Q10, oxidized ascorbate, and vitamin E.
