Description  more details

Jarrow Formulas Stabilized R-Alpha Lipoic Acid is heat and shelf stable and exhibits high bioavailability. Most alpha-lipoic acid supplements include equal amounts of the (R) and (S) forms. However, only RALA is found naturally in the body. RALA is a unique cofactor in energy production and helps regulate glucose and lipid metabolism. RALA promotes the synthesis of glutathione and the induction of Phase II detoxification enzymes. d-Biotin is a natural cofactor and may compliment RALA in promoting mitochondrial health.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a versatile water and fat soluble metabolic antioxidant.  It is a potent free radical quencher and aids Vitamins C and E in their antioxidant activities. Vitamins C and E are added as complementary, synergistic antioxidants.

Alpha lipoic acid has many functions, but it’s one of the most effective free radical scavengers, and the only one known to easily get into your brain.It also has the ability to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamins C, E, and glutathione. So, when your body has used up these antioxidants, if there’s ALA around, it helps regenerate them.

One condition that ALA helps is peripheral neuropathy.  This condition can be caused by injury, nutritional deficiencies, chemotherapy or medical conditions. Alpha lipoic acid works as an antioxidant in both water and fatty tissue, enabling it to enter all parts of the nerve cell and protect it from damage.  It can cross the blood-brain barrier, a wall of tiny vessels and structural cells, and pass easily into the brain, and ALA is thought to protect brain and nerve tissue by preventing free radical damage.

Alpha lipoic acid also does one other thing that no other antioxidant does – it actually has the ability to recycle other antioxidants over and over again. With antioxidant capabilities like this, alpha-lipoic acid is used to treat a number of ailments and boost immune function. Diabetics can benefit from alpha-lipoic acid use to treat nerve damage that is caused by long-term complications of the disease.
