AOR was the first company in the world to provide a 95% pure R-lipoic acid, the most effective form of Lipoic Acid. This high dose supplement provides the natural ‘R’ form of this antioxidant, unlike many other Lipoic Acid supplements that contain a mix of the natural ‘R’ form and synthetic ‘S’ form. It is also in a time-release capsule to enhance its stability. R-Lipoic Acid has a number of roles in the body as an antioxidant and more. This higher dose is suggested for those looking for a more specific amount than found in the regular AOR R-Lipoic Acid. Note: This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease, nor should supplements be used as a substitute for a balanced diet. Not intended for pregnant/breastfeeding mothers or children under 18. Do not exceed the recommended dose.
