Lipoic acid is a versatile antioxidant known for its ability to protect the brain and nerve cells from free radicals and heavy metals that promote cognitive and neurodegenerative diseases. Lipoic acid is known as the “captain of the antioxidants” due to its ability to recycle and recharge other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Numerous studies have shown that lipoic acid can balance blood sugar and repair damaged nerves in diabetics. Additionally, this powerful anti-aging nutrient has been shown to mimic some of the effects of caloric restriction, the only proven method of extending health span and lifespan. It does so by protecting the mitochondria, the tiny power plants inside of each of the body’s cells, against free radical damage. Due to its action on the mitochondria it can revive damaged cells, especially those found in nerves and in the liver. It is an ideal partner for glutathione, the most powerful antioxidant produced in the body.

In 2005, AOR introduced the world’s first sustained release pure R-lipoic acid. Unlike most conventional alpha-lipoic acid supplements, AOR’s 95% pure R-lipoic acid delivers the most effective form of this valuable antioxidant without the negative actions of S-lipoic acid. Since lipoic acid has a very short half-life, R SR has been designed to be slowly released into the blood stream over a period of 8 hours. R SR’s new tablet form allows for a better sustained release formula, designed and manufactured by AOR’s research team in our state of the art facility.

R-Lipoic acid is a powerful, natural and well-rounded antioxidant with many mechanisms of action such as repairing nerves, balancing blood sugar, protecting the brain and increasing energy formation in the mitochondria. The sustained release formula gives you continual antioxidant protection around the clock for many health conditions or for general health and longevity.

DISCUSSION: AOR’s Sustained Release R-Lipoic Acid tablets provide only the natural ‘R’ form of this vital antioxidant, unlike most alpha-lipoic acid supplements which also contain the synthetic, inactive ‘S’ form. R-Lipoic Acid is formulated with advanced sustained release technology to provide continuous antioxidant protection.
