What Is Super R-Lipoic Acid?

Published studies have shown the critical importance of lipoic acid in cellular energy maintenance, and our best-selling Super R-Lipoic Acid provides more of the active "R" form than conventional alpha-lipoic acid products.

The sodium salt of R-lipoic acid, which is the form used in Super R-Lipoic Acid, achieves 10-30 times higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid.

Super R-Lipoic Acid Benefits

  • Supports healthy mitochondrial function
  • Preserves youthful cellular energy
  • Helps protect against oxidative stress

Next Generation Antioxidant

Through dedicated research and development, a highly absorbable form of R-lipoic acid has been discovered, and it is an antioxidant powerhouse. Through an innovative process, the biologically active “R” form of lipoic acid is converted to sodium-R-lipoate, which in a human study, achieved higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid.

Why Should I Supplement With Super R-Lipoic Acid?

Customer: Staying fit is important to me, but with work and a busy life, I worry about maintaining the energy levels I need to work and work out. I want to remain in peak form. What can I do to keep my energy levels going?

Michael A. Smith, MD: Based on numerous studies, Life Extension developed Super R-Lipoic Acid to help you preserve youthful cellular energy. It includes the active R form of lipoic acid, which is more bioavailable and stable.

Customer: On the Life Extension website, I learned that bioavailability is how quickly something ingested is introduced into the bloodstream and how much gets absorbed. Pretty cool.

Michael A. Smith, MD: And Super R-Lipoic Acid supports higher peak blood levels than standard R-lipoic acid.

Customer: Work has picked up and now I'm super busy, but since I added Super R-Lipoic to my routine, my energy is better than ever. I feel like I'm up for any challenge!

Dr. Michael A. Smith, MD: Director of Education and Spokesperson for Life Extension.

R-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that supports healthy mitochondria, preserves youthful cellular energy and helps protect against oxidative stress.1
