Bio-enhanced® R-Lipoic Acid:
The World’s First Stabilized 100% R-Lipoic Acid
Despite the many potential health benefits of Lipoic Acid, most commercial Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) supplements available today are not offered in the optimal form.
These less expensive products are a 50/50 mixture of the naturally occurring R-Lipoic and unnatural S-Lipoic. S-Lipoic Acid is a byproduct of achiral chemical synthesis and did not exist prior to 1952.
Moreover, research indicates S-Lipoic may inhibit the beneficial properties of R-Lipoic Acid.
So why is S-Lipoic Acid in ALA supplements?
It’s there to stabilize R-Lipoic Acid, which is a very unstable molecule and will degrade rapidly when exposed to heat, light and moisture. The other drawback of pure R-Lipoic Acid is its low absorption rate during digestion.
As a result, the synthetic S-Lipoic Acid was developed as a stabilizer – but this led to a new set of problems. Namely, it doesn’t offer the benefits of R-Lipoic Acid, and worse, appears to inhibit the effects of R-Lipoic Acid.
Thanks to an innovative company in California named GeroNova, there is now a better alternative. They created the world’s first stabilized 100% R-Lipoic Acid. It’s called Bio-enhanced® Na R-Lipoic Acid and it is the only Lipoic Acid in TrueALA™.
“Na R-Lipoic Acid” is the sodium salt form of R-Lipoic Acid and testing has shown it is stable with no loss of activity even when exposed to temperatures exceeding 300 degrees for six hours.
Better yet, Bio-Enhanced® Na R-Lipoic Acid helps enhance blood concentrations of R-Lipoic Acid up to 40 times higher compared to regular unstabilized RLA capsules or powder. And up to 4 times higher than the common 50/50 ALA mixture.
So, in other words, just one 100mg TrueALA™ capsule may increase Lipoic Acid in the blood as much as 400mg of regular 50/50 ALA.
Bio-Enhanced® Na R-Lipoic Acid is made with only the naturally occurring R-Lipoic Acid salts or a combination of R-Lipoic Acid and its reduced form, R-Dihydrolipoic Acid (DHLA).
It’s also important to know that Bio-Enhanced® Na R-Lipoic Acid does not cause heartburn, indigestion or stomach discomfort, unlike what some may experience with unstabilized R-Lipoic Acid.
Finally, unstabilized R-Lipoic Acid can also contain harmful heavy metals and residual solvents that are very difficult to remove. The processing and stabilization of Bio-Enhanced® Na R-Lipoic Acid removes virtually all traces of residual solvents from the raw material.
