Helps Promote Healthy Carbohydrate Management
Doctor's Best Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid contains BioEnhanced® Na-RALA, the sodium salt of R-Lipoic Acid (RLA). Unlike regular RLA, BioEnhanced™ Na-RLA is a stabilized form of RLA that won't degrade at high temperatures, is more bioavailable than regular RLA. The extraction method used on this RLA prevents solvent residues.
Lipoic acid (LA) plays an important role in glucose metabolism and energy production. Because it is soluble in both water and fat, LA is known as the "universal antioxidant." LA occurs in two forms, designated as "R" and "S." Studies suggest that RLA, the natural form, is more biologically active than the S form.
