R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) Powder

Key Features

  • Regulates Blood Sugar Level
  • Universal Antioxidant
  • Recycles Antioxidant Nutrients
  • Taste

  • Mixability

Alpha-Lipoic Acid, sometimes referred to as R-ALA, is a powerful antioxidant that is naturally produced by the human body. It is instrumental in facilitating the transfer of the sugar glucose into consumable energy which can then be used as fuel for the body. R-ALA is simply a rearranged compound of the ALA variety and fatty acid that happens to be bioavailable while at the same time functioning as an essential antioxidant. This compound can be found not only in the body, but in many green vegetables and meat types.


Serving Size & Timing

The correct size of each serving of ALA is 200 milligrams which is to be taken anywhere from one to three times a day depending on the intended effect. These should be taken without food since this supplement can already be found in certain foods. It is best not to take too much at once as it might cause levels of ALA to become imbalanced. Because meat is such a rich source of naturally derived ALA, this supplement is a great way for vegetarians to assist in their transition from eating meat.

Customer Reviews

Bulk Supplements Alpha Lipoic acid is a great, recent addition to my pre workout stack. I also mix the powder in small amounts into skin care products for its antioxidant properties.

This is my second time ordering the R- ALA. Great product and the price they offer it at is great. I use it for the antioxidant abilities and for turning carbs into energy.

On 3/21/2015 Omar said...

I am pleased with the service and product quality.

I have been ordering my Alpha Lipoic Acid from Bulk Supplements for awhile now. Why? Because unlike other hucksters out there trying to make a quick buck on the stupidity of others, Bulk Supplements has quality supplements for sale.

I like to put my own capsules together and that's why I like Bulk Supplements so much. With Bulk Supplements, I don't have to worry about fillers or other garbage in my products and the price is always better than most of their competition.

I can count on Bulk Supplements, time after time, for quality and reasonable prices. You should too.

I have taken ALA on and off for several years and this appears to be a good brand. The science behind ALA is well established. You can take a dosage anywhere from 50 mg (as a daily maintenance dose) all the way up to 600 Mg daily.

Got this for my wife that had a spinal cord tumor removed, it seems to help with neuropathic pain. The pins and needle feeling as well as the numbness has decreased slightly

Most powerful glucose removal below 4-hydroxyisoluecine. Essential for bodybuiilders and diabetics

I take R-ALA as part of a nootropic stack intended to improve mental clarity and I have been very satisfied with its performance. I do recommend Bulk Supplement's variety--it is pure and effective.

On 1/17/2015 Conrad said...

I feel I have more energy since I started taking it, which is one of the reasons I ordered it. I use it in conjunction with ALCAR (Acetyl L-Carnitine) and I notice more effect from taking these two bulk powders from than I do taking the combination caplets from Source Naturals.

Dr. Denham Harman is widely known as the "father of the free radical theory of aging", first propounded in the 1950s. Dr Harmon continued his research into his 90s, and died at 98 years of age.

"I'll have what he's having" is from a movie, but it works here, Dr Harmon consistently ingested biologic reducing agents to supress superoxide radical formation and lipid peroxidation, what are now known as antioxidants.

It would be tough to find a more efficient antioxidant than R Alpha Lipoic Acid, or RALA; In addition, RALA has many other benefits, like:
Symptomatic relief of peripheral neuropathy, especiaaly diabetic neuropathy
Increases insulin sensitivity (interventions that enhance insulin sensitivity help maintain normal blood glucose levels)
Increases nitric oxide dependent vasodilation Taking aminos to increase NO2? Take RALA, it helps.
Trials to determine whether RALA is effective in preventing or slowing cognitive decline associated with age or neurodegenerative disease are showing promise
One of its metabolites, DHLA, is also a potent reducing agent capable of regenerating important antioxidants, like vitamin C, vitamine E and glutathione.

Too much info for this space!

I should point out that RALA's mixability and solubility in water is limited, so mixing with something like yogurt, kefir or olive oil is the best bet.

Hoping this product will help with MS symptoms! Can't beat the price! Don't love the taste but am learning to try different things for mixing!

Been using this product for about a week and has lowered by glucose significantly. This powder is very inexpensive compared to other products. High quality. I will be reordering this again.

On 9/20/2014 Ian.H said...

I use this powder in my fruit smoothies and in a moisturizer; two uses in one! I couldn't be happier with this product and highly recommend it.

On 9/7/2014 william said...

One thing I would like to see is this offered in stabilized condition because of the packaging conditions and fact that bulk powder will be exposed often to oxygen.
Make sure you are keeping this cool and air sealed!
Other than that it is a great product of high value.

After using R-ALA in capsule form from other retailers for several years, I was so glad to find R-ALA in bulk form without fillers from Bulk Supplements! I purchased 100mg and the product is excellent. I will purchase again.

On 8/20/2014 NYoung said...

I've been taking Alpha Lipoic Acid for 10 years and was so happy to find the new form R-Alpha Lipoiic Acid in bulk -without fillers!! I just use the measurement printed on the package and put it in my shake or morning glass of water. Very happy with the price!

On 7/31/2014 Ilene Sherfy said...

Pleased to find R-ALA with no additives. Well packaged in a tough airtight and waterproof zip seal bag, with an informative label. Shipped fast, too. More than satisfied to date with service and products from

On 5/16/2014 David said...

Potent and effective, bearable taste, and no fillers. While the bag is small the doses are also small so this should last a while.

On 5/13/2014 Mark said...

This is the finest quality Alpha Lipoic Acid, I have had. As a regular ALA user, I was purchasing from a major USA supplier. This ALA is far and above the best! It also came double bagged (no waste). I'm glad I switched my bulk supplier. In my past few orders I've saved over 70 dollars.

On 5/11/2014 robbin said...

I was looking for an R ALA without fillers because I wanted to add it to my morning smoothie. I am glad I found as this is a great value and appears to work as well if not better than my prior capsule version. It dissolves right away also and does not have any aftertaste.

On 5/4/2014 Helen said...

This product came fast. I noticed a difference the day I took it. It does have a taste of course, but I was able to cover the flavor (of it and other builk supplements I am taking) with cinnamon in my hot cereal.

On 4/30/2014 Marianne said...

Great value can be mixed or easily put in gel-caps . I will be ordering more products soon the purity is hard to find.

On 4/20/2014 Danny said...

I really appreciate being able to buy this supplement in bulk. It is a great savings and I appreciate your company for providing this. The Alpha Lipoic Acid mixes well and arrived so quickly.


On 3/24/2014 mary said...

Wow! I can't believe the value this company gives its customers. I'm new to Bulk Supplements and grateful to have their products. The Alpha Lipoic Acid powder is easy to take and mixes well. Mary

On 3/24/2014 mary said...

I have taken Alpha Lipoic acid for a while in capsule form. I was excited to find it here at BulkSupplements in free form. Even more exciting is that they also have it in the R-Alpha Lipoic which the body process better. I really enjoy the supplements and recommend to anyone looking for a superior product!!!

On 3/5/2014 Tyrone said...

I love this stuff. It is easy to mix in with my juices during the day so I find dosing to be quite hassle free. It dissolves right away and I can certainly tell a difference throughout the day with my energy levels. Superb quality :D
