What is Bio-enhanced® Na-RALA?
Na-RALA is the sodium salt form of R-Lipoic Acid, which allows it to be more heat stable, and provides it with the ability to have fast dissolution rates as well as high solubility and absorption. This means that it has no solvent or polymer residues and won't degrade at high temperatures. It is also more bioavailable than regular RLA.
Lipoic acid (LA), known as the “universal antioxidant” because of its solubility in both water and fat, plays a major part in glucose metabolism and energy production. LA occurs in two forms, designated as "R" and "S." Studies suggest that RLA, the natural form, is more biologically active than the S form.
Na-RALA is the LA that is stabilized with less than 1% of the Daily Value of Na (sodium). The sodium in this product in unlikely to affect blood pressure levels and is not in the form of NaCl or sodium chloride, which may have bad effects on blood pressure.
