I was intrigued by this product. I read the information about it since it says the consistency of the Lypo-Speric R-ALA is better for absorption than any other type of typical way i.e.: capsule, pills or powders.
I often give-up on taking my other supplements due to me not liking to swallow the large capsule.
I am currently exercising daily and eating healthy with a lot of veggies and protein. This was a great addition to my daily routine.
I do have to say the consistency is a bit disturbing, but adding it to juice is the best route to go. It is quite thick and does not necessarily mix in with the liquid. I find that stirring it in a small amount of cold juice and while the juice is still swirling, drink quickly!
It does have a bit of an after taste to me, but the benefits def out weigh the after taste. I also take a small snack after to cleanse my palette after.
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is one of the strongest antioxidants that can be found in nearly every tissue in a healthy body. A small amount of ALA is made naturally in the body, but the rest of what you need must come from eating red meat, organ meats, and brewer's yeast or from dietary supplements.
Since the amount of ALA available in dietary supplements is as much as 1,000 times greater than what you can obtain in a normal diet, ALA experts recommend daily supplementation with high-quality ALA.
The R Form of ALA
ALA can be found in two forms: the R form, which is the form found in nature, or the S form, which is often used in low-cost, synthetic preparations of ALA. R-ALA is proven to be more bioavailable and biologically active than S-ALA, but it is expensive to produce and often presents stability issues in manufacturing. This is why most ALA supplements contain only the S form, or a 50/50 mixture of S-ALA and R-ALA.
Lypo-Spheric™ R-ALA encapsulates R-ALA in liposomes made from Essential Phospholipids, which protect the R-ALA from destruction by your digestive juices. Within minutes of taking Lypo-Spheric™ R-ALA, liposomes filled with R-ALA are transported directly into the bloodstream, and into the cells. This powerful delivery system gives you the potential to experience the full benefits of ALA with every packet.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
