  • What Is It?

    PotassiumRlipoate is a highly bioavailable and stable
    potassium salt of Rlipoic acid. Regular Rlipoic acid is
    heat sensitive and may polymerize extensively, decreasing
    its absorption significantly. In fact, regular Rlipoic acid
    may need to be refrigerated and may only have a shelf life
    of six months. On the other hand, heating
    potassiumRlipoate to 150?øC (302?øF) for 6 hours did
    not result in loss of activity and revealed less
    than 0.3% polymerization. In realtime stability tests,
    potassiumRlipoate remained stable after 18 months. As
    an added assurance, Pure Encapsulations issued an
    independent accelerated stability test, in which
    potassiumRlipoate was stable over a simulated 18
    month period. *

    Uses For R-lipoic acid (stabilized)

    Nerve Health: In a recent in vitro study at the Buck
    Institute for Aging in California, Rlipoic acid moderated
    oxidative stress in neurons. A related study demonstrates
    the ability of Rlipoic acid to support memory tasks
    in animals by supporting mitochondrial function and
    protecting cells from free radicals.*

    Glucose Metabolism: An animal study suggested that
    Rlipoic 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 Rlipoic acid may be protective
    against agerelated oxidative stress in the liver.
    Furthermore, a study at Oregon State University
    established a potential role for Rlipoic acid in protecting
    the heart from agerelated oxidative stress.*
