Vitacost R-Alpha Lipoic Acid Stabilized RALA Description

A superior, biologically active form of lipoic acid.

What is R-Alpha lipoic acid?

R-Alpha lipoic acid (RALA) is the naturally occurring form of lipoic acid, a nutrient present in every cell of the body, essential to chemical reactions that allow the body to produce energy.* The body produces very little alpha lipoic acid and it is difficult to obtain sufficient quantities through diet alone.

Lipoic acid has been called “a universal antioxidant” because it’s effective as an antioxidant in water-based environments, such as blood, yet its reduced metabolite, dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA), is also effective in protecting fatty tissues and membranes.*

The "R" form is considered the biologically active form, identical to that produced by the body. Unlike other forms of lipoic acid, RALA is bioavailable and more stable in the body.


How does R-Alpha lipoic acid support health?


  • May promote cardiovascular health by protecting against free radical damage.*
  • Regenerates the antioxidant activity of vitamin C, vitamin E and coenzyme Q10.*
  • May increase levels of glutathione, the body’s most important antioxidant.*

Why choose Vitacost R-Alpha Lipoic Acid?


  • Standardized to 80% active R-lipoic acid (equivalent to 100 mg of R-Lipoic Acid Sodium 70% ingredient) (70 mg)
  • One bottle contains 60 one-capsule servings.
  • Exceptional quality at an extraordinary value.

This is a top product especially when taken along with L-Carnitine and with Vitacost prices you can't go wrong. May 5, 2013
Better than regular alpha lipoic acid! I had used alpha lipoic acid, along with l-carnitine, for several years. Then a health products expert recommended that I take R-alpha lipoic acid for its better absorption. Yes, this product is more expensive than regular alpha lipoic acid, and more than a combo ALA + L-Carnitine. But I prefer to pay a bit more for a more beneficial formula. The capsules are tiny and you hardly know you've swallowed anything! I wish VC would consider selling it BOGO sometimes, as they do regular ALA, to make it less expensive. April 29, 2013
Just as good as brand names I found this to be just as effective as the Source Naturals brand and it's a lot cheaper. March 24, 2013
Excellent product I was recommended to take this by a friend. I checked with my physician and he agreed it's an excellent supplement. I had tried another brand at first and had some digestive upset but this product did not cause any issues. March 5, 2013
Great Product This is the best form of ALA at a great price. I did have an issue that Vitacost addressed right away. February 16, 2013
