If youâ€™re looking for the most stable, efficacious, and absorbable Lipoic Acid products available, youâ€™ve come to the right place! Learn about the powerful benefits of Lipoic Acid, discover why R-Lipoic Acid (RLA) is superior to most commercially available alpha lipoic products and unstabilized R-lipoic acid products, and see what makes GeroNova the #1 provider of R-Lipoic Acid supplements. You can also read about our individual products and shop online!
GeroNova Research offers an extensive line of stabilized R-Lipoic (RLA) products, including single-ingredient R Lipoic products as well as combination formulas. That's why we're "The Lipoic Acid Company." This page will help you decide which GeroNova products are right for you.
1. R-Lipoic Acid Products
When it comes to R-Lipoic Acid, some people want the quick absorption and fast action of water-soluble salts, while others prefer the slow absorption and longer half-life of oil-based products. GeroNova scientists and medical advisors currently believe the optimal dosing strategy may involve both forms in equal amounts of 75-600 mg/day.
A. Quick absorption water-soluble R-Lipoic Acid salts (Bio-EnhancedÂ® R-Lipoic Acid)
Without special processing, R Lipoic Acid is highly unstable and difficult to absorb. See the pharmacokinetic data. The products below feature R-Lipoic Acid stabilized with either sodium (Na-RALA) or potassium (Potassium-R-Lipoate).
The benefit of water-soluble salts is that they reach high blood levels and are taken up into the tissues quickly. In fact, blood and tissue levels achieved from water-soluble R-Lipoic Acid salts are comparable to that attained with IV injections!
RLA (single-ingredient products)
Bio-EnhancedÂ® R-Lipoic Acid vegcaps BEST-SELLER!
Bio-EnhancedÂ® K-RALA-10â„¢ liquid
Stabilized RLA. Choose between Bio-EnhancedÂ® R-Lipoic Acid vegetarian capsules (as Sodium-R-Lipoate or Na-RALA) or our groundbreaking K-RALA-10 liquid (as Potassium-R-Lipoate or K-RALA), which is especially fast-acting.
Inflammation Support (combination formula)
R-PLUSâ„¢ Curcumin vegcaps
Anti-inflammatory times two. R-Plus Curcumin combines the anti-inflammatory power of stabilized R-Lipoic Acid with that of high bioavailability curcumin (from turmeric).*
Antioxidant Protection (combination formula)
R-PLUSâ„¢ NAC vegcaps
Advanced cellular protection. Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid and N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) kick the body's protective system into action to prevent cellular damage and accelerated aging.*
B. Slow absorption oil-based R-Lipoic Acid (stabilized RLA/R-DHLA)
As stated above, R Lipoic Acid is highly unstable and difficult to absorb unless it has been specially processed. The products below contain a 50/50 mixture of stabilized R-Lipoic Acid and its reduced form R-Dihydrolipoic Acid, also known as R-DHLA. The two forms work closely together in the body, swapping electrons with each other as needed to fight free radicals.
The benefit of oil-based R-Lipoic Acid is that it has a longer half life, meaning it stays in the body longer. In fact, blood levels of regular users can be measured for several days after dosing.
RLA/R-DHLA (single-ingredient product)
R-PLUSÂ® softgels BEST SELLER!
The redox couple. Provides stabilized R-Lipoic Acid and its reduced form R-DHLA â€” the naturally occurring "redox" (reduction/oxidation) forms of Lipoic Acid.
Metabolic Support (combination formula)
The blood lipids duo. The combination of stabilized RLA/R-DHLA protects cholesterol from free radical damage, while tocotrienols support a healthy lipid profile.*
Energy & Immune Support (combination formula)
R-PLUS Qâ„¢ softgels
Raw materials for energy. Both RLA/R-DHLA and Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) play important roles in the body's production of cellular energy and improve immune function.*
2. Carnitine products
Research indicates that the combination of R-Lipoic Acid and carnitine may be more beneficial than either product taken alone.
Mind, Memory & Mood Support (combination formula)
Energy for the mind. A combination of L-Carnitine, which complements RLA's role in the production of energy, and Acetyl-L-Carnitine, which supports cognitive function, memory and emotional health.*
Energy & Liver Support (combination formula)
Energy for the body. A combination of L-Carnitine, which complements RLA's role in the production of energy, and L-Carntine Orotate, which promotes the reproduction of liver cells.
3. Lipoid Acid based cosmeceuticals
Anti-Aging Skin Cream
Skin therapy. Deeply penetrating natural anti-aging skin cream promotes skin rejuvenation, increases elasticity and lessens the appearance of wrinkles and deeper lines with an all-star cast of antioxidants and cell rejuvenators.
