Jarrow Formulas Announces R-Alpha Lipoic Acid Dietary Supplement

LOS ANGELES — July 11, 2011 — Jarrow Formulas®, a formulator and supplier of superior nutritional supplements, is releasing to retailers a high bioavailability formulation of the powerful dietary supplement R-Alpha Lipoic Acid. This new item adds to the company's extensive line of antioxidant products.  Jarrow Formulas is providing BioEnhanced® R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, a form that offers significant advantages over R-Alpha Lipoic Acid products previously available in that it is both heat and shelf stable.

The “R” form of Alpha Lipoic Acid is the naturally occurring form of Alpha Lipoic Acid that is found within the human body.  It exhibits better absorption and bioavailability than traditional Alpha Lipoic Acid supplements.  R-Alpha Lipoic Acid supports energy production, sugar and lipid metabolism, and antioxidant production.

“Alpha Lipoic Acid powerfully supports the body’s production of its own antioxidants, such as glutathione, as well as contributing to proper insulin metabolism and the regulation of other systems important to maintaining health, especially as we age,” says Dallas Clouatre, Ph.D., Jarrow Formulas’ Product Development Consultant. “R-Alpha Lipoic Acid by several measures is 10 times more bioavailable and physiologically active than is regular Alpha Lipoic Acid.”

The R-Alpha Lipoic Acid source used by Jarrow Formulas has been clinically studied since 1995 and has been the subject of over 30 peer reviewed scientific trials. These include clinical research that was conducted at the University of Heidelberg (Germany) in connection with the compound’s effects with regard to blood sugar metabolism and energy production.

Jarrow Formulas’ 60-capsule bottle of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid is made with Bio-Enhanced® Na-RALA. It will be available on July 11, 2011 and has a suggested retail price (SRP) of $29.95.
