Premium Nutrient Delivery Agent and Universal Antioxidant
The R-ALA is the purest form of Alpha Lipoic Acid. R-ALA helps the body remove sugar from the bloodstream and has an impressive ability to aid in the delivery of a wide variety of other nutrients, including creatine.
Many people using R-ALA report higher energy levels for sustained periods of time. Commercially available ALA products on the market today tend to be cheaper and consist almost entirely of the S(-) isomer of Alpha Lipoic Acid. These inferior products have significantly weaker nutrient delivery and antioxidant properties. If a label does not specify R-ALA, it isn't.
Each serving of Arsenal's R-ALA contains a full 125 mg of the pure biologically active R Isomer, the mitochondrial form found naturally in the human body. Make the switch to purest most bio-active ALA, Arsenal R-ALA.
Take 1-2 capsules of R-ALA 2-3 times daily. Due to the nutrient delivery properties of this product, it is recommended to take R-ALA with meals, and/or supplements that require effective nutrient delivery into muscle cells - for example creatine & protein supplements.
What is Alpha Lipoic Acid?
Alpha-lipoic acid occurs naturally as a 50/50 mixture of R-lipoic acid (R-ALA) and S-lipoic acid (S-ALA). R-lipoic acid by itself functions as an essential cofactor for many enzymes involved in energy production.* It also has characteristics, including significant antioxidant effects, that contribute to liver, brain, nerve, and eye health.* Studies indicate that supplements containing only R-lipoic acid appear to be better absorbed than supplements containing both R-lipoic acid and S-lipoic acid, with results showing twice as much ALA appearing in the bloodstream after an oral dose of R-Lipoic acid.* Because R-Lipoic acid is the form best utilized by the body, we use R-lipoic acid bound to sodium, providing it in its most stable, absorbable form.*
Alpha-lipoic acid, also known as thioctic acid, was discovered in 1951 as a molecule that assists in acyl-group transfer and as a coenzyme in the Krebs Cycle. In the 1980s, the scientific community realized that alpha-lipoic acid is also a powerful antioxidant.* What sets ALA apart from other fatty acids is that it's an antioxidant in both fat- and water-soluble environments, and it's also an antioxidant in both its oxidized and reduced forms.* This is unlike vitamin C, for instance, which is a water-soluble antioxidant, as well as vitamin E, which is a fat-soluble antioxidant. ALA also increases intracellular glutathione and CoQ10 levels.* Its other mechanisms of action include promoting normal protein glycosylation and inhibiting the enzyme aldose reductase, which in turn inhibits conversion of glucose to sorbitol.*
