Pro Lipoic Acid provides only the natural “R” form of the antioxidant lipoic acid.

Lipoic acid is a versatile antioxidant known for its ability to protect neurons from the free radicals and heavy metals that promote cognitive and neurodegenerative diseases. It also helps promote healthy blood glucose balance and can repair and prevent diabetic complications such as neuropathy.

(R)-alpha-lipoic acid improves energy production, protects the liver, and functions as a lead chelator. Additionally, this nutrient has been shown to mimic some of the effects of caloric restriction, protecting the mitochondria to help extend lifespan.

AOR Advantage:

In 1999, AOR was the first company in the world to offer pure R(+) lipoic acid based on the most current literature. AOR’s pure R(+) lipoic acid delivers the most effective form of this valuable antioxidant without the negative actions of lipoic acid’s S (-) form.

Discussion

Pro Lipoic Acid helps to promote healthy glucose metabolism. AOR’s Pro Lipoic Acid provides the natural ‘R’ form of this vital antioxidant produced in the body, unlike most alpha-lipoic acid supplements which also contain equal amounts of the synthetic, inactive ‘S’ form. AOR’s Pro Lipoic Acid is in delayed-release capsules to enhance its stability and effectiveness.

(R)-alpha-lipoic acid (RLA) is a naturally occurring fatty acid derivative that is involved in several key metabolic pathways including its role as an essential cofactor in mitochondrial energy production. RLA also regulates cellular signaling pathways over a timeline much greater than its own bioavailability. These effects include an increase in glutathione synthesis.

When administered exogenously, RLA provides several therapeutic benefits including neuroprotection from diabetic complications, reduction of age-associated oxidative damage, contributions to weight loss, and detoxification of redox-active transition metals.

Weight management

RLA’s weight loss effects are attributed to its ability to help reduce food intake, increase energy expenditure, and in supporting blood sugar regulation. A meta-analysis of 11 placebo-controlled trials found that 8 to 52 weeks of RLA treatment is associated with significantly greater weight loss and BMI reductions compared to placebo.1

Diabetic Neuropathy

In a clinical trial of 181 diabetic patients, 5 weeks of RLA supplementation (600 mg daily) led to significant reduction in neuropathic symptoms from the baseline, compared to controls.2

Another trial assessed long-term use of RLA in 460 patients with mild to moderate diabetic neuropathy. After 4 years of treatment, 600 mg of RLA daily led to significant improvements in general neuropathic impairment, lower limb neuropathic impairment, and lower limb muscular weakness compared to controls for whom neuropathy progressed over the trial period.3
