The more potent, biologically active form of alpha lipoic acid.
Healthy, Broad-Spectrum Antioxidant Support With ONE Simple Nutrient*
Your Cellular Secret to Staying Healthy*
You've probably heard of free radicals. They're the "loose cannons" of the cell world that wreak havoc with your body by upsetting stable molecules.
The good news is... you can fight off free radicals with antioxidants. You've probably heard of them too. But here are a few facts about these cellular heroes that you might NOT know...
- Fact #1: As you age, your antioxidant arsenal of vitamin E, vitamin C, co-enzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and glutathione declines in your body—leaving you at the mercy of damaging free radicals.
- Fact #2: You can take supplements to increase your levels of vitamin E, vitamin C and CoQ10. But glutathione—the powerful antioxidant that helps deactivate free radicals... is difficult to increase in your body by taking glutathione supplements.
- Fact #3: The potent antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid can recycle depleted vitamin E, vitamin C and CoQ10—and supports healthy glutathione levels.
Scientists call alpha-lipoic acid the "missing link" in the fight against free radicals. Not only is it a beneficial antioxidant in its own right, but it helps keep the other antioxidants active—and in the battle.
You Get Beneficial Free Radical Protection—And So Much More!*
Alpha-lipoic acid is both fat- and water-soluble. That means it can work throughout your body-and even cross into your brain and nerve tissues, where few nutrients are allowed to tread. But it doesn't only clobber the free radical bad guys and prevent them from harming your cells.
R-Lipoic Acid-The Active Form of Alpha-Lipoic Acid*
Alpha-lipoic acid comes in two forms—the active R-lipoic acid and the less active S-lipoic acid.
Most supplement manufacturers offer a mixture of the two forms because it's cheaper to produce. You can get some benefit from it, but researchers have found that the human body prefers the more biologically active form of the nutrient-R-lipoic acid.
That's why True Health™ only offers R-lipoic acid. You get greater antioxidant benefits than you would with the less active form of alpha-lipoic acid—at substantially lower doses.
