Bio-Enhanced® R-Lipoic Acid vegetarian caps.
Unsurpassed stability and absorption.
GeroNova's Bio-Enhanced R-Lipoic Acid in the form of Na RALA has demonstrated superior bio-availability, stability and potency.
The primary benefit of the completely water-soluble salt is that high blood and tissue levels can be achieved rapidly. Bio-Enhanced R-Lipoic Acid may deliver all the health benefits of lipoic acid: antioxidant protection and efficient energy production, and may result in an increased sense of well-being and improved health-span for regular consumers.*
GeroNova's proprietary stabilization process converts the biologically active, natural "R" form of lipoic acid to sodium-R-lipoic acid (Na RALA), which, in a recent human study achieved 40 times higher peak blood levels than pure R-lipoic acid.

I bought this product directly from Geronova for several years after first having taken Alpha Lipoic Acid. It was immediately apparent that the Geronova R-Lipoic Acid is much more potent for equivalent milligrams. It has helped to reduce my migraines more than anything else I have tried. It was recommended by a headache specialist MD. Since Geronova started only selling this through Amazon I've bought it here and not had any problems with the quality. I believe based on my long experience with both Geronova and Amazon that the problems people have had with unsealed bottles etc are most likely due to tampering by someone at the Amazon storage/shipping end of things. I've had such problems with other things I've ordered through Amazon. Just my opinion but BE SURE YOU ARE ORDERING FROM GERONOVA AND NOT ANOTHER VENDOR selling through amazon since the latter means even more opportunity for bottles to be tampered with or not actually being the genuine product. Yes it's more expensive than Alpha Lipoic Acid, but the research shows that it's up to 40 times more bioavailable. My experience is consistent with this. As for not dissolving as one person stated, R-Lipoic Acid doesn't dissolve in water. I purchased the 100% R-Lipoic Acid powder from Geronova when it was available and it just floated on top of water and would not dissolve. So I don't know what the person making the complaint might have been using before which dissolved. Just guessing it might have been Alpha Lipoic Acid. If you look at published research it indicates that Lipoic Acid and Biotin compete for the same receptors in the body. If you take any form of Lipoic Acid it's best to also take the Biotin (Vitamin B7) but the Biotin should be taken at a different time of day than the Lipoic Acid. The research also indicates that in order to get the highest levels in your brain, you should take the whole dose of Lipoic Acid at once on an empty stomach at least 30 minutes before eating anything else. (Don't take it in divided doses throughout the day.) I don't know if that's the most effective dosing schedule for other indications such as peripheral neuropathy. I'd say look at the research.
I am having great success with this product and others from GeroNova Research.
My bottle arrived melted together. It was mostly at the bottom so I wasnt too worried. Now that Ive gotten down to this part, I realized a few of them were rotten and it smells horrible. Not the best quality.
I really like this product!
