Product Description


Not all 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) Acetyl L-Carnitine and (R-ALA) R-Isomer Alpha Lipoic Acid. The benefits of supplementing with R-Isomer alpha-lipoic 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 R-ALA (R-Isomer 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 Acid work?
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 skeletal muscle.

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.
