R-Lipoic acid provides only the natural ‘R’ form of this vital antioxidant produced in the body, unlike most alpha-lipoic acid supplements which also contain equal amounts of the synthetic, inactive ‘S’ form. AOR’s R-Lipoic Acid is now in delayed release capsules to enhance its stability and effectiveness.
Lipoic acid is a versatile antioxidant known for its ability to protect the brain and nerve cells from free radicals and heavy metals that promote cognitive and neurodegenerative diseases. Lipoic acid is known as the “captain of the antioxidants” due to its ability to recycle and recharge other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Numerous studies have shown that lipoic acid can balance blood sugar and repair nerves damaged by diabetes. Additionally, this powerful anti-aging nutrient has been shown to mimic some of the effects of caloric restriction, the only proven method of extending health span and lifespan. It does so by protecting the mitochondria against free radical damage. Due to its action on the mitochondria it can revive damaged cells, especially those found in nerves and in the liver. It is a powerful partner for glutathione, the most powerful antioxidant produced in the body.
In 1999, AOR introduced the world’s first pure R( ) lipoic acid based on the most current research. Unlike most conventional alpha-lipoic acid supplements, AOR’s 95% pure R( ) lipoic acid delivers the most effective form of this valuable antioxidant without the negative actions of S(-) lipoic acid.
R-Lipoic acid is a powerful, natural and well-rounded antioxidant with many actions such as repairing nerves, balancing blood sugar, protecting the brain and increasing energy formation in the mitochondria. Regular doses of lipoic acid are recommended for maintaining overall general health while high doses of R( ) lipoic acid are recommended for the management of high blood sugar, diabetic neuropathy and weight.
AOR™ guarantees that there is not more than 7 mg of S-lipoic acid per capsule, and that all ingredients have been declared on the label. Contains no wheat, gluten, corn, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sulphites, mustard, soy, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish or any animal byproduct.
(Adult): Take 1 capsule three times daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.

I started this under the recommendation of my Naturopathic doctor. I am on a fairly high does, so for me the price is a bit high. The capsules are easy to get down as they are not too big. No unpleasant odor and I am having no side effects. Overall, very happy with this product.
I have found this supplement to be effective in controlling blood sugar levels. Also, trust the AOR brand.
I feel Aor R+ is an important part of my diet. I feel my energy is up, and I trust this company for quality products.
This was prescribed by my Naturopathic doctor for helping blood sugar metabolism naturally, and also to optimize liver due to non-alcoholic fatty liver. No side-effects, pill is medium size (not too big), no unpleasant smell.
Great price and fast shipping.
