The Powerful Antioxidant
sku: 1208 | 60 vegetarian capsules

Alpha lipoic acid along with vitamins C and E are the body’s main line of defense against free radicals. Alpha lipoic acid has been identified as the ideal antioxidant as unlike vitamin C which is water soluble, or vitamin E which is fat soluble, it has the ability to neutralize free radicals both in lipids as well as in the aqueous  parts of a cells.


Alpha lipoic acid is composed of two different types of forms (isomers)the ‘R’ and ‘S’ type which exhibit very different properties. The ‘R’ type is its biological active form (native tothehuman body) responsible for its antioxidant properties, while the ‘S’ type is chemically manufactured and is not highly biologically active.

Supplements of lipoic acid are composed of an ‘S&R’ typein a 50:50ratio meaning that a lipoic acid supplement contains 50% of the active ‘R’ type. The human body normally produces and uses the ‘R’ type of lipoic acid. The ‘R’ type of lipoic acid significantly relieves inflammatory conditions and has proven to be significantly more potent than the combined ‘R&S’type thatis found in alpha lipoic acid. Life Extension’s food supplements contain the ‘R’ type of lipoic acid which exhibits the highest bioavailability, stability and strength.


The ‘R’ type of lipoic acidfound in our supplements is10 to 30 times more powerful than other forms of lipoic acid and reaches its maximum strength within 10 to 20 minutes from intake. Its increased stability is the reason behind this powerful and rapid absorption.
