If you have diabetes or prediabetes, you must make changes to stop the progression. Beside shifting your diet, there are a few things you can take to work on reversing insulin receptors to get them healthy and receptive again. I recommend this product because it's well researched, safe and effective. The only thing I would point out here is that if you're on medications, you do need to consult your physician because this nutrient can reduce your need for as much insulin. Only your physician can help you measure your levels to make the needed adjustments over time.
Lowers blood glucose and insulin levels, reduces insulin resistance, and improves insulin sensitivity. Alpha Lipoic Acid may prove to be the "kingpin" in the fight against Type II diabetes and it's many complications, according to Disease Prevention and Treatment (4th Edition), by Life Extension Foundation. It helps burn glucose and quenches free radicals in the cells which could otherwise damage the cell's mitochondria, which would negatively impact glucose metabolism. It reduces Hemoglobin A1C, a standard marker of glucose damaged proteins.
How is Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid better than other Alpha Lipoic Acid and R-Lipoic Products on the market?
New technological advancements have allowed for the stabilization and isolation of the RLA (R-Lipoic Acid isomer), which is believed to account for all the benefits seen from studies with R/S Lipoic Acid. Supplementing with pure RLA, thus eliminating the presence of SLA (S-Lipoic Acid isomer), creates new opportunities for intensive nutritional support because SLA is believed to interfere with the effectiveness of RLA. R-Lipoic Acid is a highly unstable compound that easily changes into a sticky rubber or glue-like substance if it is not prepared, stored and processed correctly. This will adversely affect bioavailability. Stable RLA is a non-hygroscopic, non-polymeric potassium salt form of RLA. The capsules are heat stable, characterized by fast dissolution rates, high solubility and absorption. They are also free of residual solvents and moisture. There are wide variations in the R/S ratios and total polymer contents of raw material and finished products now on the market. Few supplement companies have experience with RLA and are unaware of the myriad of problems associated with its encapsulation and stability. Designs for Health's Stabilized RLipoic Acid is sourced from the only stable and highly bioavailable form of R-Lipoic Acid available on the market.
Product Contains: Biotin 4 mg; Taurine 500 mg; R-Lipoic Acid 100 mg.
Other Ingredients: Potassium bicarbonate, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide.
This product does not contain: Our Stabilized R-Lipoic Acid is in the form of Potassium-RLipoate, the preferred and only commercially available stable form of R-Lipoic acid. Binding it to potassium prevents it from polymerizing, which occurs easily due to its hygroscopic nature. This stable, non-hygroscopic, non-polymeric potassium salt form of R-Lipoic Acid does not require any special handling or refrigeration. The capsules are free of residual solvents and moisture.
If you are pregnant, nursing, diabetic, on medication, have any medical condition, or beginning a weight control program, consult your physician before using this product or any other dietary supplement. Discontinue use if allergic reaction occurs. Also, keep out of reach of children.
