R-ALA (R-Alpha Lipoic Acid)

$ 29.95
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals R-Lipoic Acid is a natural form of lipoic acid that your body can synthesize and safely metabolize. R-α-lipoic acid (R-LA) is a cofactor of mitochondrial enzymes and a very strong antioxidant. R-lipoic acid has been shown to be 10 times more effective than ordinary lipoic acid. Ordinary ALA has a short half-life and poor absorption (about 30%) because of poor solubility and instability in the stomach. Hi-Tech's R-ALA uses our Cyclosome® formulation, which dramatically improves alpha lipoic acid absorption. The R-ALA version (isomer) of ALA shows the best bioavailability but is still limited due to its poor solubility and stability problems. Hi-Tech first stabilizes R-LA through complexation with cyclodextrin (CD). This alone has been orally shown to promote higher plasma levels with an area under the plasma concentration-time curve that was 2.5 times higher than that after oral administration of non-complexed R-LA. Hi-Tech also then loads R-α-lipoic acid into a uniquely designed phospholipid bubble called a liposome. This powerful delivery system shows a 2.8-fold increase in absorption and manages to withstand all digestive challenges transporting the R-LA directly into the cells where it’s needed most. Hi-Tech has left nothing to chance when bringing you the most effective R-α-lipoic acid on the market!

R-ALA supplement facts

Cyclosome™ Delivery:

As our understanding and discovery of new ingredients expands in our industry, the need for new and novel ways to deliver the highest and safest bioavailable ingredients also increases. In the past many companies created simple coatings that provided a brief comfort to the user's gut and only a small amount of usable ingredients making its way into the bloodstream. With the proprietary oral delivery system in Cyclosome™ Technology, Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals is changing how well your body will be able to utilize compounds with terrific promise.

Researchers at Hi-Tech recently developed this Cyclosome™ proprietary process. This one-of-a-kind technology involves the entrapment of hydrophobic compounds in the form of water-soluble cyclodextrin (CD) complex in liposomes. This breakthrough technology has been investigated as a new strategy to combine the advantages of our Cyclosome™ Technology. This novel process changes all of that in Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals complete Wellness Line of daily use products.

This new technology allows the delivery of a wide array of ingredients to the systemic circulation by the intestinal lymphatic route, circumventing first-pass inactivation in the liver for the very first time. Long gone are the days of overdosing products in an attempt to improve our bodies ability to utilize as much of the ingredient as possible without being destroyed by our digestive track or liver.


Take 1 tablet twice daily, preferably with meals.
