  • More Potent Than Synthetic Lipoic Acid
  • Doctor Formulated
  • Dietary Supplement

Natural R-alpha lipoic acid (R-ALA) is a powerful antioxidant that helps the body metabolize sugar properly. R-ALA is much more potent than commonly sold synthetic lipoic acid.

At Physician Formulas we use the highest quality R-Alpha Lipoic Acid we can find. R-Alpha Lipoic Acid is more potent (2 times on average) than commonly sold synthetic lipoic acid which contains both the R and S forms of lipoic acid. The S form is chemically the mirror image of the R form of lipoic acid and cannot be used by the body, hence it is useless. Thus, 50 mg of R-Lipoic Acid is, on average, equivalent to 100 mg of synthetic lipoic acid. Alpha lipoic acid is readily absorbed from the diet or as a supplement. *

Dr. Ray Sahelian, M.D., a world renowned nutritional expert says, "Just because researchers use high doses of alpha lipoic acid for a brief period and find it generally safe does not mean these same high doses, such as 300 ot 600 mg, will be safe when used daily for prolonged periods. I do not feel comfortable recommending more than 50 mg of R alpha lipoic acid on a regular basis unless closely monitored by a health care provider."

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take one capsule in the morning on an empty stomach or as recommended by your health care provider.
