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-Enhanced® 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-Enhanced® R-Lipoic Acid vegcaps BEST-SELLER!
Bio-Enhanced® K-RALA-10™ liquid

Stabilized RLA. Choose between Bio-Enhanced® 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)

The redox couple. Provides stabilized R-Lipoic Acid and its reduced form R-DHLA — the naturally occurring "redox" (reduction/oxidation) forms of Lipoic Acid.

Metabolic Support (combination formula)

MITO-GOLD softgels
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)

Carnitine-PLUS vegcaps
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)

Liquid Carnitine-PLUS
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.
