My experiences with R-Alpha Lipoic Acid have been good and I feel it has support my body mass stabilisation and based on the relationship it has with GSH and heavy metal detox it is here to stay in my health routine.
Look for the R-Alpha rather than the Alpha generic as this will contain S-Alpha which is a synthetic.
Best results will be found with R-Alpha Lipoic Acid.
I always suggest you do your own research however be sure to strongly consider this supplement along with Liposomal Glutathione, Turmeric, Liposamal Curcumin, MSM, Iodine and Vitamin K2 amongst others as outlined in my supplement section on my website.
According to the researchers from Britain’s University of Liverpool, a dietary supplement can save people from unwanted pounds after they go off their weight-loss plans.
The study showed that the dietary supplement alpha lipoic acid can “lock in” the benefits of a six-month weight loss program if taken after the diet is completed.
Goyns said, “Our discovery indicates that by following a calorie restriction diet for six months and then taking alpha-lipoic acid while eating normally, the same life extension effects will be experienced.”

What is Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)?
Alpha Lipoic Acid is an antioxidant, and is widely used in prevention of various diseases. Its main function is to increase production of glutathione, which helps dissolve toxic substances in the liver. An antioxidant helps neutralise free radicals in our bodies and protects our cells from damage. A free radical is an unstable molecule that tries to steal electrons from other molecules, thus causing damage. Smoking, pollution, car exhaust, fried foods are some sources of free radicals. Alpha lipoic acid is also easily absorbed into the blood stream, and it can also cross the blood brain barrier.
What does Alpha Lipoic Acid do?
There is a long list of benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid, some have even gone as far to call it the “ideal antioxidant”. All types of people will benefit from taking ALA. ALA will be even more beneficial for individuals with some of the following conditions:
• Diabetes or higher than normal blood sugar levels
• Have high cholesterol levels
• Are affected by cataracts (in early stages)
• Cardiovascular problems such as hardening of arteries
Obviously, the 2 biggest benefits from supplementing Alpha Lipoic Acid is its powerful antioxidant properties, and its ability to help increase Glutathione levels which plays a big role in dissolving toxic substances in the liver.
