What Is R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA)?

R-alpha lipoic acid (R-ALA) is a form of alpha lipoic acid (ALA) that is more biologically active and absorbs into the body much more easily than other types of ALA. R-ALA is an acid that plays an important part in bodily functions such as the Krebs cycle and is known as the "universal antioxidant" due to its ability to assist with absorption of various other antioxidants such as glutathion and vitamins.

R-ALA has a low melting temperature that may cause your product to clump together. No loss of potency or efficacy occurs if it melts, but it may become a semi-solid rubbery mass. R-ALA may also have an unpleasant chemical flavor. This is normal and does not affect the quality of the product.

Pregnant or lactating women, people with existing medical conditions, or people taking medications should consult their health care provider/s before taking any dietary supplement.

So useful for heavy metal detox!

Almost 5

Just now I noticed that I had opened and read an email addressed to me at 0115. I was up THAT late and still got up naturally, without feeling tired at 0630. Yawned a few times today but did not nod off. I have been taking only my free sample of R-ALA combined with CoQ 10 in coconut oil for the last 3 days. The CoQ/R-ALA combination seems to extend my energy beyond work, into the evening. I waited until the weather cooled down here in the desert before ordering the sample as the product is known to clump in high temps. The product came clumped but still usable for **** applications but not very user friendly in the "try to dissolve it in oil" application. I do have a scale but measuring daily is inconvenient. So I just rip off a piece that i think might be 1/6 to 1/8 teaspoon. I have some ALA from a purchase (different company) about 3 years ago and it is still flowing and usable. I suspect that Bulk Supp is trying to finish out their old ALA/R-ALA stash so that they can get the free flowing stuff. If they do that this winter I will purchase more for cosmetic and **** use. Almost 5 stars as the product arrived clumped. It is all good though. I can use my ALA solely for cosmetic formulations and the R-ALA with the ALCAR internally. I haven't tried the R-ALA/ALCAR comb yet. Looking forward to feeling and seeing results .
