PLEASE NOTE: Our Na R-ALA is a TRUE 600mg per Serving (2 Capsules). The 600mg is the TRUE net weight of the desired compound R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (aka R-ALA aka R-Lipoic Acid aka R-LA aka R-Lipoate, yes so many ways to say the same thing). In order to Stabilize, R-ALA, Sodium (Na) is attached to it, which increases the overall weight of the molecule substantially. Many brands neglect to adequately state the net weight of Na R-ALA and you might not get the dose needed. With Na (Sodium) weight added the actual mg's of Na R-ALA is 750mg for 2 capsules.
Understanding Alpha Lipoic Acid
As much as we want to fit 600mg into a single capsule, it physically is not possible. After the "R"-ALA is isolated and Stabilized the final raw material is supremely fluffy and takes up a tremendous amount of space in the capsule. Having a 2 Capsule serving to get the full 600mg dose was the best option. The added benefit of having a 2 capsule serving, gives customers the ability to easily titrate up to the desired dose, as Alpha Lipoic Acid at high doses can sometimes be challenging to tolerate, and has proven to be helpful in the earlier weeks. Typically, to get the full benefits of this product 600mg daily dose is recommended, but under the supervision of a healthcare provider dosing upwards of 1200mg per day in divided doses is commonly understood to help people in need of Neuroprotective and Myelin Health support.
Alpha Lipoic Acid naturally comes with R-ALA and S-ALA 50% of each. S-ALA can be problematic, and possibly hinder the results you are looking to achieve. Other brands realizing this, started using the isolated R-ALA hoping to resolve the issue and focused on marketing the High Potency version. This simply is not enough. The problem with unstabilized R-ALA is that it's simply unstable, and can easily break down and/or polymerize under high heat situations like during transport at any point in the supply chain. A polymerized capsule is simply usual, and might as well have not taken anything at this point, as you will not get the result you are looking for.
Stabilized form of R-ALA has shown results of up to 40x more absorption which is tremendous*. Since the FDA has not truly standardized Dietary Supplement labeling, you need to be able to decipher the infinite number of product labels out there claiming to be something that you actually might not be looking for. At IMMUNOVITES, our sincere desire is to make it possible for you to find what you need in a way that makes sense and help guide you to a better product that will hopefully help you on your journey.
