R-PLUS R-Lipoic Shortage. R-Dihydrolipoic Acid Comment

Heads-up. Higher than expected sales volume compounded by a raw materials shortage is going to result in R-PLUS being sold out shortly.

A large batch of R-Dihydrolipoic acid that is a component of the R-PLUS was destroyed during synthesis and it may be two months before more is available. This substance is very difficult and time-consuming to make.

I was able to act quickly and secure the last cases of R-PLUS that GeroNova had available.

Speaking of R-Dihydrolipoic Acid, or DHLA as it is abbreviated, beware of non-GeroNova products containing or claiming to contain it. It you are using a 100% DHLA product, many smart people now think when used by itself it can actually tip you into a pro-oxidative state. Not good at all.

To make matters worse, because it is so hard to synthesize DHLA in the lab, some bulk suppliers are selling a sub-standard product. How will you know? It smells awful. I mean like cat urine. Tom-Cat urine. You will burp a disgusting taste.

Top quality GeroNova capsules if opened will have a distinctive chemical taste and odor, that while not yummy and delicious, is not disgusting.
