Aurora Introduces New Liposomal R-Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha-lipoic acid comes in two forms—the active R-lipoic acid and the less active S-lipoic acid. Most supplement manufacturers offer a mixture of the two forms because it’s cheaper to produce. You can get some benefit from it, but researchers have found that the human body prefers the more biologically active form of the nutrient-R-lipoic acid. R-Lipoic Acid is the form use exclusively in the new Aurora Nurtrascience Liposomal about to be released.

The Scientific community is fast recognizing the powerful anti-oxidant effects this supplements appears to possess, along with its synergistic effect on other essential nutrients. A list of reported benefits of this remarkable supplement are as follows:


One of the underlying problems in diabetes is oxidative stress and the production of free radicals. These free radicals circulate in the body, attacking and damaging tissues. Since people with diabetes have high glucose levels, they are more prone to oxidative stress, which may contribute to the long-term complications of the disease.

Antioxidants such as lipoic acid may help prevent this damage by neutralizing free radicals and reducing oxidative stress. Lipoic acid is an unusual antioxidant because it can act in both water-soluble and fat-soluble domains in cells and tissues. Thanks to these qualities, it is easily absorbed and transported into many organs and systems within the body, for example, the brain, liver, and nerves. Contrast this with antioxidants such as vitamin C, which is not very lipid-soluble (so is not able to penetrate the lipid wall of cell membranes very well), or vitamin E, which is not very water-soluble. When lipoic acid is combined with these antioxidants, the body’s ability to fight free radicals is greatly increased. In fact, lipoic acid is thought to help regenerate vitamin C

Furthermore, lipoic acid can amplify the positive effects of other important antioxidants in the body such as glutathione and coenzyme Q10—two essential compounds in the fight against aging and disease.


Evidence now suggests that lipoic acid may be critical for not only maintaining optimal blood sugar levels by helping the body to use glucose, but also for supporting insulin sensitivity and key aspects of cardiovascular health, such as endothelial function.

Lipoic acid may reduce blood pressure and insulin resistance, improve the lipid profile, and reduce weight. Scientists are encouraged by lipoic acid’s potential as a therapeutic agent for individuals with metabolic syndrome.

Recent studies indicate a possible dramatic effects administering lipoic acid in improving insulin sensitivity in overweight adults suffering from type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown that Lipoic acid produced significant improvements in a very short time frame


Lipoic acid offers promise in supporting optimal visual health.

As adults grow older, they become more vulnerable to developing cataracts, opacities of the lens that cloud sight. Scientists believe that lipoic acid may confer this benefit by increasing levels of essential endogenous antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase.


Another common cause of vision loss is glaucoma. A study in patients with open-angle glaucoma found that visual function and other measures of glaucoma were improved in a group that received either 75 mg of lipoic acid daily for two months or 150 mg of lipoic acid daily for one month, compared with a control group that received no lipoic acid.


Given its strong ability to neutralize the damaging effects of oxidative stress, lipoic acid is the subject of intense study in preventing free radical damage to the neurological system.


New evidence also suggests that lipoic acid may possibly help guard against one of the most dreaded conditions associated with aging—Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers have identified a series of mechanisms through which lipoic acid may work in helping prevent or manage Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists believe that lipoic acid may increase the production of acetylcholine, an essential nervous system messenger that is deficient in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease victims.


Preliminary evidence suggests that lipoic acid could possibly offer welcome relief for migraine sufferers. When a group of these individuals received a supplement of 600 mg of lipoic acid each day for three months, the frequency and intensity of their migraines declined modestly, and they also reported suffering fewer headache days.


Liposomal is a proven technology that dramatically improves the bio-availability of any supplement. Liposomal supplements protect the supplement from being broken down in the gastric systems leading to a 4-5 times absorption rate more then typical supplements. Simply put, your body gets a lot more of the good stuff and with no side effects (such as gastric discomfort)

In addition to the markets best absorption rates, Aurora products are all natural, gluten free, and NON GMO. If your considering supplementing your health regime with Vitamin C, Glutathione, CoQ10, Curcumin and R-Lipoic acid, Aurora Nutrascience Liposomal is your best value.
