We are just starting to get a trickle of what I believe will be a flood of positive research on potent r-lipoic acid. Brand new research documents protective effects of "super" antioxidant r-lipoic acid.
A quote from the PubMed article:
"To investigate the mechanisms of neurodegeneration in this model, we studied cognitive function, hippocampal neuronal apoptosis and neurogenesis, and peripheral oxidative stress biomarkers and also the protective effects of the antioxidant R-alpha-lipoic acid. "
And the result:
"A concomitant treatment with lipoic acid ameliorated cognitive dysfunction and neurodegeneration in the hippocampus and also reduced peripheral oxidative damage by decreasing malondialdehyde and increasing T-AOC and T-SOD, without an effect on GSH-Px."
Remember - Unstabilized r-lipoic is worthless! Only GeroNova Research manufactures a stabilized, natural sustained release r-lipoic acid with the addition of super-potent r-dihydrolipoic acid. I will not mince words - Anything else and you are wasting your money.
I take 1 R-PLUS and 1 Mito-GOLD in the AM before breakfast, and then again before dinner for a very generous 600mg of r-lipoic/r-dihydrolipoic acid daily. Along with 1500 mg of Acetyl-l-Carnitine, and I have never felt better, younger, more energized in my life.
What are you waiting for anyhow? If are thinking of the cost or expense, I suggest you re-frame your thoughts to consider these products an investment. You are investing in your body and your life.
