Lipoic acid is a versatile antioxidant known for its protective ability of brain cells and nerves against free radicals and heavy metals that promote cognitive and neurodegenerative diseases. Lipoic acid is known as the “Captain of antioxidants” because it is easy to recycle and recharge other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Many studies have shown that lipoic acid can balance blood glucose levels and repair nerves damaged by diabetes. In addition, this potent anti-aging nutrient has been shown to mimic some of the effects of calorie restriction, the only method tested to prolong life and health. This occurs by protecting the mitochondria from the damage of free radicals. Because of its action on the mitochondria, it can revive the damaged cells especially those found in the nerves and in the liver. It is an important partner for glutathione, the most powerful antioxidant produced in the body.
In 1999, AOR announced the production of a pure R () lipoic acid based on the latest research, while being a first in the world market. Unlike most conventional alpha-lipoic acid supplements, R () lipoic acid from AOR, pure to 95% offers the most effective form of this important antioxidant without the harmful effects of s (-) of lipoic acid.
R-lipoic acid is a potent, natural, well-adjusted antioxidant that is involved in nerve repair, blood glucose balancing, brain protection, and increased energy in mitochondria. Regular doses of lipoic acid are recommended for optimal health maintenance while high doses of R () lipoic acid are recommended for the management of weight, hyperglycemia, and diabetic neuropathy.
