R-ALPHA LIPOIC ACID SODIUM SALT

This product is not available at the moment

Alpha-Lipoic acid, also known as thioctic acid or ALA in the short version. ALA it´s involved in several metabolic processes as cofactor, so it´s important to maintain good levels of this substance and, as an organic compound, acts as a powerful antioxidant in the body. 

 

Its chemical nomenclature is 1,2-dithiolane-3-pentanoic acid. As a sulfur containing substance, ALA is considered a thiol compound. ALA exists in two optical isomers forms, R and S. After oral intake, ALA is absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract and is transported to different organs such as brain because it has the potential of freely cross the blood–brain barrier. 

 

Naturally occurring alpha lipoic acid is found in its R-form bound to proteins, whereas in supplements lipoic acid is often found in free form. Unlike other antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid has the ability to act in both fatty and aqueous media. This characteristic gives it a great advantage over other antioxidants.
