Hepatica R-ALA is the active form of alpha-lipoic acid, in the form of Vcaps® Plus vegan capsules. R-ALA improves metabolic parameters, slows down the aging process of the body, supports cognitive functions, and the functioning of the nervous system.
R-Alpha lipoic acid is classified as a vitamin-like substance, although it is structurally similar to a saturated fatty acid. R-Alpha lipoic acid is produced naturally by the body and dissolves in both water and fat.
R-ALA reduces the number of free radicals inside and outside the cells. What is more, it can regenerate and restore the antioxidant properties of some vitamins. It also promotes the antioxidant activity of substances such as glutathione or coenzyme Q10. As a result, R-ALA is referred to as a universal antioxidant that significantly reduces the level of free radicals in the body.
Alpha-lipoic acid is involved in glucose and lipid metabolism. It is also a cofactor for mitochondrial respiratory enzymes, supporting the functioning of mitochondria, which are responsible for, e.g., energy production. The performance of mitochondria and antioxidant enzymes is one of the factors contributing to slowing down the adverse effects of aging.
Glycemia and body composition
R-ALA may increase glucose uptake by skeletal muscle, regardless of insulin activity. This has a beneficial effect on reducing blood glucose levels, also in people with type 2 diabetes. Alpha-lipoic acid can also reduce the accumulation of fatty acids, and thus limit fat storage in the body, which is a positive aspect in terms of body weight loss.
In summary, Hepatica R-ALA is the active form of alpha-lipoic acid. R-ALA will support the reduction of body weight, improvement of metabolic parameters, as well as optimization of the body's metabolic processes.
To increase the number of mitochondria and improve their functioning, it is recommended to combine the supplementation with the acetylated form of L-carnitine (ALCAR).
R-ALA also increases the level of acetylcholine in the brain and reduces its breakdown by limiting the action of acetylcholinesterase. As to maximize cognitive effects, it is worth combining with a source of choline or huperzine A.
