Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is one of the strongest antioxidants that can be found in nearly every tissue in a healthy body. A small amount of ALA is made naturally in the body, but the rest of what you need must come from eating red meat, organ meats, and brewer’s yeast or from dietary supplements.
Since the amount of ALA available in dietary supplements is as much as 1,000 times greater than what you can obtain in a normal diet, ALA experts recommend daily supplementation with high-quality ALA.
ALA can be found in two forms: the R form, which is the form found in nature, or the S form, which is often used in low-cost, synthetic preparations of ALA. R-ALA is proven to be more bioavailable and biologically active than S-ALA, but it is expensive to produce and often presents stability issues in manufacturing. This is why most ALA supplements contain only the S form, or a 50/50 mixture of S-ALA and R-ALA.
Altrient® R-ALA encapsulates R-ALA in liposomes made from Essential Phospholipids, which protect the R-ALA from destruction by your digestive juices. Within minutes of taking Altrient® R-ALA, liposomes filled with R-ALA are transported directly into the bloodstream, and into the cells. This powerful delivery system gives you the potential to experience the full benefits of ALA with every packet.
