R-Alpha Lipoic Acid from $10.33
ALA Supplements were created equal!
The November, 2003 Issue
of Reader's Digest features a headline
"The Pill That Ends Aging."
We suggest you pick up this issue (or find it online)
and read it carefully. The article features (ALC)
and (R-ALA) R-Isomer Alpha Lipoic Acid. The benefits of
acid (ALA) seem endless, and we have
summarized them in the following information below.
Warning ALA (Alpha Lipoic
Acid) is not R-ALA (R-Isomer form)
R-ALA (R-Isomer) is at least 3X stronger and more
effective than standard ALA.
Example: 100mg of R-ALA is equal to at
least 250-300mg of regular ALA
and R-ALA is 99.9% pure
(no ALA contains this purity).
Note from the Editor: While our
Alpha Lipoic Acid) is very competitively priced,
be cautious about products that just seem too cheap or
have poor quality and uninformative websites. R-ALA must
be 99.9% pure in order for it to be effective (very few
sites will tell you this). Also, the addition of Biotin
is a must and creates an incredible synergistic effect
when combined with R-ALA.
How Does Z-LabsŪ R-Alpha-Lipoic
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) a nutrient present in every cell
of the body, essential to chemical reactions which allow
the body to produce energy.
In addition to playing a crucial role in normal
metabolism and energy production, Alpha Lipoic Acid also
functions as a potent antioxidant that helps protect
healthy cells from the damaging effects of free
radicals. Besides protecting membranes, mitochondria
(the energy-producing structures within cells) and
cellular DNA, RLA work synergistically with vitamins C
and E and Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).
Because it's both fat and water soluble, ALA can
neutralize free radicals in both the fatty and watery
regions of cells (unlike vitamin C, which is only water
soluble, and vitamin E, which is fat soluble). ALA may
increase levels of glutathione in the body. Glutathione
is an antioxidant that plays an important role in
protecting the brain as well as visual health.
ALA also promotes healthy blood glucose levels. By
speeding the removal of glucose from the bloodstream (by
enhancing insulin function), ALA may help reduce glucose
tolerance and decrease insulin resistance. It may also
restore glucose availability in tissues such as the
There are several reasons you should supplement with
ALA. First, the body produces barely enough of this
nutrient to keep up with metabolic demands, and the
amount decreases as you age. Second, ALA functions as an
antioxidant only when it's present in excess. If you
have only a small amount in your body, it will be used
for energy production rather than antioxidant
protection. Third, it may be difficult to obtain
sufficient quantities of ALA through diet alone.
Other ingredients: Kosher gelatin (capsule) and
dietary supplement, take 1-2 capsules daily or as
directed by a physician.
