This product provides R-alpha-lipoic acid bound through a patented process, making it a highly stabilized form of R-alpha-lipoic acid capable of delivering the antioxidant nutrient faster than other forms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I've been taking this for a while, and like it a lot. I've read numerous articles about the benefits of alpha lipoic acid and r-lipoic acid. This brand doesn't contain harmful ingredients and is reasonably priced, too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pricey I had trouble with my legs and researched that this would be good. It seemed to make it worse for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from R --- REALLY? The hype on this product is that it is more effective / bioavailable than the straight Alpha Lipoic Acid. Sounded good, so I tried it. Upon regular, daily use of both forms for a long enough time (many months of each) to make a bona fide direct comparison between the two products, I came to the conclusion that while the R form is allegedly more bioavailable than the straight, regular form of Alpha Lipoic Acid, to me there is no perceptible advantage, and therefore no reason to pay more for the R form. If there is a benefit one way or the other, to me it is imperceptible and insignificant. I have not done any lab testing or individual, controlled, double-blind studies on this, so all I can go by is my own personal experience. There is a lot of good, reputable, published material that discusses the antioxidant, anti-aging, wellness importance and value of Alpha Lipoic Acid, and I believe that. I have cross-referenced it, and double-checked it out. I want to keep Alpha Lipoic Acid as part of my daily nutritional supplement regimen in the most beneficial, effective, and cost effective form and potency for me. I'm ready to reorder Alpha Lipoic Acid now, and I'm going to go back to the 600 mg. capsule of the straight stuff. It is less expensive than this R-Fraction form, and as far as I can tell from my own previous personal usage, it produces better bang for the buck. - - - Really.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not any more effective than drug store brands That's why I bought it; because I understand the drug store "Alpha Lipoic Acid" is half R and half S, R being the active ingredient. This didn't seem to be any more effective taken even in as many pills a day as the drug store variety. The only difference is it does not make your urine smell like you've eaten asparagus. :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't be mislead! Yes this is very effective with the R-Isomer at 300mg however, do your research. You can get the same amount of R-Isomer in a 600mg dose of regular Alpha Lipoic Acid as it is a 50/50 mixture of R-Isomer and the ineffective S-Isomer at a much more reasonable price.
