General Information

About C-RLA

The following is information provided by the manufacturer of C-RLA. I have reviewed it and agree with these statements.

Marty Ross MD

Information from Researched Nutritionals

High Dose, High Absorption, GMO-free, Soy-free & Vegetarian

C-RLA offers doctors and their patients a safe, efficacious delivery system of High Dose Vitamin C and R-Lipoic Acid in one formulation. The sunflower-derived phospholipids (non-soy product for those with soy sensitivities) are GMO-free and 100% vegetarian.

Each serving contains 1500 mg of Vitamin C and 70 mg of R-Lipoic Acid in a natural (GMO-free) liposomal preparation. As most oral Vitamin C doses above 250 mg are very poorly absorbed, the only efficacious high dose oral delivery system is via liposomes from natural phosphatidyl choline. Many doctors supplement in-office Vitamin C drips with C-RLA so the patients continue to receive the benefit of high-dose Vitamin C without stomach distress.

Lipoic Acid - a vital antioxidant*

Antioxidants such as lipoic acid prevent oxidative stress (the damage created within cells from aging and even exercising - new research talks about the need to control oxidative stress as an essential component to healthy aging) 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. It also has the property of regenerating vitamins C & E so you get more punch out of those antioxidants.

Lipoic acid helps 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. It also teams with the B-vitamin family to support energy production in the body by converting the components of food, namely carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, into stored energy for future use. Lipoic acid does this by helping to protect mitochondria, the energy-producing factories of cells, from being damaged by oxidative stress, thus ensuring that energy production in the body remains efficient.

R-Form of Lipoic Acid*

Alpha-lipoic acid consists of two different forms (isomers) that have vastly different properties. The "R" form is the biologically active component (native to the body) that is responsible for lipoic acid's phenomenal antioxidant effect. The "S" form is produced from chemical manufacture and is not very biologically active. Typical alpha-lipoic acid supplements consist of the "R" and "S" form in a 50/50 ratio. Another way of looking at it is if you prescribe 100 mg of alpha-lipoic acid to a patient, the patient will only get the benefit of 50 mg of active "R" form. The human body normally produces and uses the "R" form of lipoic acid. As a powerful antioxidant, it also promotes healthy mitochondrial function.* R-lipoic acid by itself may be 10 times more effective than other forms of lipoic acid and has been called the "mitochondrial antioxidant" because it is a key component of mitochondrial dehydrogenase complexes, which may help to slow the natural aging process in animals. The pure R-Lipoic Acid in C-RLA supports a healthy inflammatory response and is a potent free-radical scavenger.*

The only vitamin C supplement that I tolerate October 24, 2018
Reviewer: Heather Whitworth  
I've tried so so many kinds of vitamin C in the past and could never find one I could take.  I'd get a migraine within hours of taking it.  This stuff is great!  No reaction at all.  And as a bonus, it has lipoic acid in it which my doctor told me to take.  Thanks Dr. Ross for your store and access to great supplements!

A great Vitamin C product for damaged mitochondria December 11, 2017
Reviewer: Hyacinth from Racine, WI United States  
With mitochondrial damage, my MD has prescribed this to assist my cells to get the vitamin  C inside via the liposomal preparation.  It has made a big difference in my well=being and energy level.
