Most ordinary forms of alpha-lipoic acid – tablets, capsules, powders and liquids come in the chemically synthesised form of S-Lipoic Acid (S-LA) which is stable and cheap to produce but its benefits are limited. Altrient uses the form naturally occurring in plants called R-lipoic acid (R-LA) which has exceptional health benefits due to its unique fat and water-soluble properties.
These allow it to work inside and outside of the cells, protecting virtually all body tissues against free radical damage. Whilst R-LA is proven to be far better absorbed than S-LA it is highly unstable and rapidly excreted. Fortunately, Altrient R-ALA has the answer providing a superior form of R-LA without compromising on stability. It achieves this by encapsulating R-LA into a cleverly designed phospholipid bubble called a liposome. This powerful delivery system manages to withstand all digestive challenges transporting the ALA directly into the cells where it’s needed most.
