Uses For R-lipoic acid (stabilized)
Nerve Health: In a recent in vitro study at the Buck Institute for Aging in California, R–lipoic acid moderated oxidative stress in neurons. A related study demonstrates the ability of R–lipoic acid to support memory tasks in animals by supporting mitochondrial function and protecting cells from free radicals.*
Glucose Metabolism: An animal study suggested that R–lipoic acid supported healthy glucose metabolism. Additional studies suggest that R-lipoic acid promotes glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle.*
Antioxidant Support: A University of California Berkeley study indicates that R–lipoic acid may be protective against age–related oxidative stress in the liver. Furthermore, a study at Oregon State University established a potential role for R–lipoic acid in protecting the heart from age–related oxidative stress.*
