TrueALA Stabilized R-ALA Supplement Facts and Suggested Uses

The RIGHT Alpha-Lipoic Acid for Your Body… 

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is known as the “universal antioxidant” because it uniquely works in both water and fat soluble parts of your cells, making it very valuable and versatile. Plus, it makes other antioxidants work better.

As you get older, your body needs more ALA than it is typically getting – making a supplement a good idea.

The problem is the ALA in most supplements isn’t truly the Alpha-Lipoic Acid your body uses. Instead it is a 50/50 mixture of two compounds: R-Lipoic Acid and S-Lipoic Acid.

R-Lipoic Acid is the form that is naturally found in humans, animals and plants. It is the ALA you want. S-Lipoic Acid is completely unnatural – it is not found anywhere in nature. It was first chemically synthesized in a lab in 1952, and has a different biological activity than natural R-Lipoic Acid.

S-Lipoic Acid is added to ALA supplements because it helps stabilize R-Lipoic Acid – which is a very unstable molecule and will degrade rapidly when exposed to heat, light and moisture. But S-Lipoic Acid also negates many of the beneficial aspects of R-Lipoic Acid.

The bottom line is don’t just look for ALA on a supplement label, it needs to be pure R-Lipoic Acid. What’s more, it needs to be “stabilized R-Lipoic Acid” to ensure the ALA doesn’t degrade and is bioavailable.

The brand that meets these criteria is known as Bio-enhanced® stabilized R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid. And that’s the only ALA in our TrueALA™ product.

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.

 
The TrueALA - Stabilized R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a sensational customer favorite, and we hope you like it just as much.
