Alpha Lipoic Acid is a fatty acid which is naturally present in our mitochondria, where it acts as an antioxidant. Alpha Lipoic Acid is present in some fruits and vegetables, however, Alpha Lipoic Acid is notorious for having very low bioavailability and stability. One way to improve on this, is by selecting the most active enantiomer, R Alpha Lipoic Acid and then stabilizing it. In the past, this has been done with Sodium to yield Sodium R Alpha Lipoic Acid which shows excellent stability and bioavailability. However, stabilizing R Alpha Lipoic Acid within a cyclodextrin complex, to yield R Alpha Lipoic Acid Cyclodextrin, dramatically enhances the bioavailability and stability of R Alpha Lipoic Acid, above and beyond what can be achieved with a Sodium stabilization. This makes R Alpha Lipoic Acid Cyclodextrin, arguably one of the best antioxidants especially within the Mitochondria.
Beyond the potential antioxidative effects, Alpha Lipoic Acid benefits and uses include:
To further take advantage of Alpha Lipoic Acid benefits, R Alpha Lipoic Acid Cyclodextrin can be combined with Acetyl L-Carnitine in order to take advantage of the synergistic effects between the two dietary supplements. The combination of Alpha Lipoic Acid and Acetyl L-Carnitine, in particular has a potent effect on increasing Mitochondrial density and may support mitochondrial function.
As a dietary supplement, take 500mg of R-ALA Cyclodextrin powder once daily.
