Alpha Lipoic Acid (Dual R-Form)

Alpha lipoic acid is a vitamin B-like molecule with potent antioxidant properties. The Dual-R Form contains the two most effective forms of alpha lipoic acid (R and R-dihydro forms) that assist with protection against sugar glycation cellular aging (sugar-induced cell damage). Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) exists in three forms. The S-ALA form is not only inactive, but can also neutralise some of the beneficial effects of the other two forms: R and R-dihydro ALA. This is the only ALA product in South Africa that contains the R-dihydro form and is also the only product that contains no S-ALA. R and R-dihydro ALA are the forms that are immediately available to the cells of the body. 150mg of this ALA provides greater biological activity than a 300mg capsule of regular ALA.
