R-ALA Description from Ultimate Nutrition
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is known by a variety of names, including thioctic acid, 1, 2-dithiolane-3-pentanoic acid, 1, 2-dithiolane-3 valeric acid, dihydrolipoic acid, lipoic acid, and 6, 8-thioctic acid. The importance of ALA was first discovered in the 1950s, when it was recognized as a powerful antioxidant and an important cofactor in the Krebs cycle (i.e., citric acid cycle), the body's main process for converting carbohydrates into energy. Put simply, ALA converts glucose (i.e., blood sugar) into energy for the body's normal function.
