R Lipoic Acid Super Antioxidant-Activity Formula

The "R" form is the biologically active component of Alpha Lipoic Acid which means that it is the only form that one's body can absorb and synthesize thus making R-Lipoic supplementation inherently more efficient and effective. Studies have shown that R Lipoic alone may be considerably more effective than racemic Alpha Lipoic Acid.
