R-Lipoic Acid is the most active isomer of alpha-lipoic acid, which is a versatile antioxidant.* It has important characteristics that contribute to liver, nerve, and eye health.* Alpha-lipoic acid occurs naturally as a 50/50 mixture of R-lipoic acid (R-ALA) and S-lipoic acid (S-ALA). R-lipoic acid by itself functions as an essential cofactor for many enzymes involved in energy production.* It also has characteristics, including significant antioxidant effects, that help contribute to liver, brain, nerve, and eye health.* Studies indicate that supplements containing only R-lipoic acid appear to be better absorbed than supplements containing both R-lipoic acid and S-lipoic acid, with results showing twice as much ALA appearing in the bloodstream after an oral dose of R-Lipoic acid.* Because R-Lipoic acid is the form best utilized by the body, Thorne provides R-lipoic acid bound to sodium, providing it in its most stable, absorbable form.*Brain/Nerves*Liver/Detox* Dietary ConsiderationsGluten Free Serving Size:Ã‚Â 1 Capsule Servings Per Container:Ã‚Â 60 Amount Per ServingR-Lipoic Acid (as Sodium R-Lipoic Acid) 100 mg Other ingredients: Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Magnesium Citrate, Calcium Laurate, Silicon Dioxide, Leucine Suggested Use:Ã‚Â Take 1 capsule one to two times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.Gluten FreeIf pregnant, consult your health-care practitioner before using this product.

Vision support supplements are a great way to make certain you are getting all the nutrients you need to support and maintain your eyes. Proper eyecare consists of getting excellent nutrition through both vision supplements and good diet. Additionally, avoiding eyestrain, using proper eye protection and getting adequate rest all combine to create an excellent program of eye support. The vitamins and minerals necessary for proper eyecare are many and varied. That's why it's a good idea to take a vision multivitamin that provides plenty of beta-carotene and vitamin A, a good assortment of B vitamins, vitamins C, D and E. Additionally, a good vision multivitamin should provide carotenoids, such as lutein and macular pigments, such as zeaxanthin to help guard against macular degeneration and cataracts. Also, look for bioflavonoid to help support good absorption of vitamin C, phytochemical antioxidants to fight oxidative stress and Omega-3 fatty acids to help prevent dry eye and encourage general glowing health.
While vision supplements are very important, it is equally important to remember to eat a varied and balanced diet for optimum eye support and overall health benefits. When eating for good eyecare, you should be sure to eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies and whole grains. In fact, half your diet should be fresh fruit and vegetables and a quarter of it should be whole grains. The remaining quarter of your diet can be made up of lean protein sources, low fat dairy products and healthful oils such as olive, grapeseed, sunflower and other non-hydrogenated, natural types of oil. Be sure to drink plenty of fresh, pure water and avoid processed foods and foods that contain a great deal of sugar, salt and artificial ingredients. By following this sort of healthful, whole foods diet, you will enjoy excellent overall health and well-being, and your body will be able to make the best use of the vision support supplements you choose.
