Alpha Lipoic Acid powder is a vital ingredient that helps the body produce energy. Alpha-lipoic acid, with its powerful ability to combat free radicals that enter your cells, can shield you from numerous health conditions at the cellular level.

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is an organosulfur compound derived from caprylic acid, and it’s naturally found in the body of humans and animals. ALA plays a primary role in cell energy production.

The alpha-lipoic acid powder is in yellow needle-like crystals with a molecular formula of C8H14O2S2. Alpha-lipoic acid has many other names, such as α-lipoic acid, thioctic acid, (±)-α-Lipoic acid, etc. Its IUPAC name is (R)-5-(1,2-Dithiolan-3-yl)pentanoic acid.

The CAS number of Alpha lipoic acid is 1077-28-7, and the molecular weight is 206.32. Alpha lipoic acid has many different forms with different potency and absorption. Some popular derivates and forms include R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, Ethyl 6,8-dichlorooctanoate, R-(+)- ALA SODIUM, R-(+)-ALA TROMETHAMINE, Lipoamide, R-alpha-Lipoic acid tromethamine salt, etc.

Forms of Alpha-Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid is the racemic RS-ALA, a racemic mixture of isomers of S-LA (S-Alpha Lipoic Acid) and R-LA (R-Alpha Lipoic Acid). Most ALA supplements contain 300mg of R-ALA and 300mg of S-ALA in a single capsule dosage.

Alpha Lipoic Acid VS R-Lipoic Acid

They are different compounds. Alpha lipoic acid is the most commercially available form of lipoic acid. As mentioned above, alpha-lipoic acid consists of a 50/50 mixture of R-LA and S-LA.


In nature, R-ALA is the only version available and the version your body needs. S-ALA is unnatural, and a synthetic byproduct of the manufacturing process.

All in all, R-LA is the active, natural form of Alpha-lipoic acid. The Alpha S-lipoic acid occurs when ALA is synthetically manufactured, creating both the S-form and the active R-form. Generally speaking, the S-form is most likely inactive.

Stability and Absorption

The racemic form of ALA is stable, safe, and effective, with more peer-reviewed studies than the R-ALA. Almost all forms of R-ALA are unstable, except for certain patented forms that cost several times as much as generic versions; the generic versions of R-ALA may become racemic RS-ALA within weeks or months and not meet label claims.

R-lipoic acid is not stable when separated from the S-lipoic acid form. If r-lipoic acid is exposed to temperatures above room temperature, it quickly becomes an insoluble adhesive polymer.

ALA and Biotin

A combination of ALA and biotin promotes glutathione synthesis. The formula also helps the body’s carbohydrate metabolism.
