Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a vitamin-like compound. It’s considered the “universal antioxidant” because of its powerful and unique properties.

What is R-ALA and why is it the best?
Most ALA supplements are a 50/50 mixture of R-ALA and S-ALA. R-ALA is the biologically active ALA isomer and the form that’s found naturally in the body. R-ALA is the only form of ALA that can be used by the body and provide amazing health benefits.
There is really no benefit to consuming the S-ALA isomer, and in fact, it can be counterproductive.

Why is S-ALA no good?
S-ALA delivers different biological actions than R-ALA and isn’t as effective at promoting health and well-being. At higher concentrations, S-ALA can actually disrupt R-ALA’s beneficial effects on mitochondria and energy metabolism.
Further to that, S-ALA has less potent antioxidant properties than R-ALA and cannot bind to certain enzymes in the body.
