Product Description
  • Our most effective alpha lipoic acid supplement to date
  • Isolates the R-isomer, the only form found in the body for enhanced benefit
  • Stabilized form of R-alpha lipoic acid

Swanson R-Fraction Alpha Lipoic Acid is a step above traditional alpha lipoic acid supplements. Conventional alpha lipoic acid supplements feature a 50-50 racemic blend of R and S isomers, but the R isomer is the only form that occurs in the human body, and it's the form responsible for most of alpha lipoic acid's beneficial effects. However, efforts to make an effective supplement containing only the R form have always been hampered by stability problems - until now. This form achieves maximum R-alpha lipoic acid concentrations in plasma after 30 minutes that are up to 8-10 times greater than those reached by regular (racemic) alpha lipoic acid supplements.

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

One of THE BEST Supplements Available

In the 24 years I've been selling / educating the public about supplements, this advanced form of Lipoic Acid is perhaps the 2nd most versatile and effective supplement I've ever seen (only behind Pycnogenol-brand Pine Bark Extract).R-Lipoic Acid is a truly effective 'healthy aging' supplement, because it helps protect your brain, eyes, blood sugar, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and other vital organs, tissues and systems throughout your body.Government regulations keep me from giving you precise details as to the many ways R-Lipoic Acid benefits human health.Taking this with high quality vitamins C and E, and coenzyme Q10 has been proven by leading antioxidant scientists to provide your body with maximum antioxidant protection from head to toe.I honestly consider R-Lipoic Acid to be a vital part of any serious 'healthy aging supplement regimen'.I cannot recommend this product too strongly!

Natural energy and skin improvement

This is a wonderful product that provides energy without any jitters. I take this every other day, between other Swanson supplements. I also noticed a quick difference in my skin. It looks brighter, smoother, and less dry. Just an amazing supplement that you can actually feel working. :)
