R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) Powder

Key Features

  • 100% pure R-ALA powder
  • Antioxidant
  • Non-GMO
  • Taste

  • Mixability

R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid, sometimes referred to as R-ALA, is an antioxidant that is naturally produced by the human body. R-ALA is believed to be a more potent and effective form of its parent, ALA.


Serving Size & Timing

It is recommended that R-ALA be taken at a dose of 200 mg one to three times a day, depending on the intended effect. These servings should be taken without food. It is best not to take too much at once, as this might cause imbalanced levels of ALA.

This pharmaceutical grade of ALA has no extra additives in it of any kind. R-ALA will remain stable provided that certain storage conditions are met. Keep in a tightly sealed container and away from direct sunlight and hot temperatures. Store between 25° and 30°C .

Note: Bulksupplements is not responsible for any clumping or discoloration that may occur if this product is not properly stored. Do not leave packages in the heat.


Due to the natural acidity of the powder, supplementation of ALA or R-ALA may cause some acid reflux or mild discomfort. This symptom can be eased by taking this product with food, dairy or in capsules.

There are few side effects associated with use of ALA. However, diabetics should consult their physician before use, as this supplement has the potential to lower blood sugar. ALA can also interfere with medications used to treat under- and over-active thyroid conditions. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not take this product, and those who drink excessive amounts of alcohol are encouraged to supplement Thiamine in tandem with R-ALA, as there may be a shortage.


While ALA is fat soluble on its own, because of the unpleasant taste associated with it, it is best to take it in capsule form or mixed into a shake or juice with an appropriate concentration of ALA and ALCAR combined.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is another form of antioxidant that is naturally produced by the body. In conjunction with ALA, it is known to help to speed up brain functions and heighten mental acuity. For this reason, they are usually found to be blended together in products. ALCAR and ALA together can help speed up the transfer of glucose to muscle greatly, and this blend can also help to increase the utilization of fatty acids and energy production at a cellular level.

Customer Reviews

Satisfied Customer
This is my third order of R-ALA from Bulk Supplements and as always I am completely satisfied with the potency of the product, price, and prompt shipping.*

On 5/11/2016 JOSEPH said...

On Point!
First off, I would like to say that the shipping was incredibly fast - 2 days and it was free!!! That really is something to brag about, because you don't see very many companies nowadays doing such favors for their customers! On to the product, all I can say is that the R-ALA is of great quality! The color, the smell, and the mixability of the powder are exactly on point, so I know BulkPowders have sent me a quality item! The price per gram is also spot on! Overall, I'm very very satisfied! Keep it up that way guys!*

On 5/11/2016 Dimitar said...

Awesome R-Alpha Lipoic Acid
This is a very good R-Alpha Lipoic powder. Very potent, like the other products I've tried from BS. The good thing about R-Alpha Lipoic is that it's better than normal Alpha Lipoic both internally and externally. Research shows that it is the R-Alpha Lipoic that produces the most benefits with skin. *

On 4/19/2016 Mark said...

Great Product
I use R-Lipoic acid and Alcar for it's purported effect on brain function. It is so nice to find this product at such a reasonable price.*

Great product
Excellent product. The quality is great. *

On 3/27/2016 Xiaoxia said...

Too early to tell, but appreciated the fast delivery
I just got my order and have only tried two of my products so far (this is one). It is packaged well. One comment I have is that this one said "refrigerate upon arrival," which I didn't notice until the second day. I think the warning should be more prominent for that (maybe just a different color ink?) if this is important.

rEview for R-ALA
I have been using this product for almost three weeks for the treatment of my neuropathy in my feet. sO far it seems to be helping and I have Hugh hopes it is the answer to my pain. The quick shipping is an additional perk.*

On 3/7/2016 Donald said...

I use R-ALA combined ALCAR as part of my daily stack for skin, anti-aging, and memory which I also purchase from BulkSupplements. I always find products that are reasonably priced, pure and unadulterated with fillers and such. I am always amazed at just how fast I receive my orders. You can't put a price on awesome customer service. Bulksupplements is the first place I go to for my supplements.*

On 2/18/2016 Marietha said...

So far, so good
Great product + fast shipping == happy customers. I have been using R-ALA as part of my pre-workout stack.*

On 2/14/2016 Tom said...

R-Alpha Lipoic Acid Powder
I bought this product just before 2015 Christmas holidays and started using it since then. It is a great product for diabetic polyneuropathy.
My legs are already feeling better. With ALCAR, it is helping my memory.
Grate products. Glad I bought them.*

On 2/11/2016 Ramasamy said...

I always use R-ALA as part of my daily workout stack. I feel like I have more energy to burn during my workout, especially toward the end (after about 40 mins). I like the fact that R-ALA from BULKSUPPLEMENTS is in my price range when others charge so much more. And I can count on pure product without a bunch of added garbage or fillers from BULKSUPPLEMENTS.*

On 1/27/2016 James said...

Several reasons to use this product.
1. Very few web companies offer this product in bulk, versus capsule, form. This is very important, and a credit to
2. Bulk prices make this very affordable.
3. R-ALA is much more effective than the mixed polymer (aka ALA).
4. I take both R-ALA and ALCAR for independent and combined effects.
5. R-ALA raises glutathione levels and AMPK levels. Both typically relate to telomere lengthening, I have read.
6. Lots and lots of good research done on ALA.*

On 1/16/2016 david said...

Great product. Is a great antioxidant, but I add it to my pwo with creatine because R-AlA helps creatine to get to the muscle. Great quality from bulksupplements as always...*

On 1/16/2016 Christian said...

Important antioxidant not used much because of cost till now*

On 12/3/2015 Thomas said...

Clean and pure R-ALA
We have been using Bulk supplements for some time now and have been thoroughly pleased with the products we have ordered. We love the powder form of products with no fillers or other unnecessary ingredients. The R-ALA is the only ingredient in this supplement powder. The powder form is great for us to add to our protein shakes or matcha tea in the morning. Another plus is you only need an 1/8 tsp of the powder to get 265mg. There are 250 servings at 265mg per the 50 gm pouch. Shipping was prompt as well. *

On 11/28/2015 Regi said...

Great little product
Been taking a little at a time per recommendation on package and was surprised to feel the difference. Must be some pure stuff. Yes, I do recommend.*

On 11/27/2015 Tung said...

Definitely Helps Me!
I began taking R Alpha Lipoic Acid a few years ago to help with pain in my feet due to neuropathy from diabetes. It definitely makes a noticeable difference. There have been times that I've gotten out of the habit of taking it, and sooner or later, my nerve pain reminds me. I used to buy a name brand capsule, at a considerably higher price. I'm now stocking up on the pure powder from Bulk Supplements and saving money. I won't go without this supplement and highly recommend it. *

On 11/25/2015 Bob said...

I Feel Great!!
I read the news a lot. I get so tired of the stories about companies ripping people off by selling cheap, ineffective supplements at a high price.

I never have to worry about that when I order from BULKSUPPLEMENTS. I can count on a great price and a quality product when I order my R-Alpha Lipoic Acid from them.

I like to add R-ALA to my stack after I work out at the gym. I feel more energetic on the days I add R-ALA to my supplement intake. I can feel the difference when I cycle back on R-ALA after a month off. Great product. I wouldn't buy from anyone else but BULKSUPPLEMENTS. *

On 11/18/2015 James said...

Great Price
High quality product for a good price. Shipped fast too. Thanks*

On 10/26/2015 Melissa said...

R-Alpha Lipoic Acid
Great product but difficult to measure. Such small amounts are needed for effective supplementation. Taste is slightly peppery. A high quality product, it is just difficult to measure very small doses. I would rather this supplement being sold in a small capsule. *

On 10/25/2015 Latasha said...

Feeling young again
I had been taking ALA in tablet form a for months with minimal results. After a few days of taking R-ALA in the pure form I feel more energetic and better over all. I'm 62yrs old and I feel young again. This product really works. Thank you BulkSupplements! *

On 10/18/2015 JOSEPH said...

R-lipoic Acid at a great price!
I have been paying so much for r-lipoic acid and Vitamin companies sell it in tiny amounts so I kept running out. I bought it in bulk from Bulk Supplements, as well as this great capsule filling machine. The delivery was fast with well explained information inside the box. You also get great service on the live web support. I would recommend this type of R-lipoic acid. You save tons and get a great product!*

On 10/13/2015 cammie said...

This product is a little powerhouse. A little bit goes a long way. Doesn't mix into water very easily, need to use a powerful blender. Got it mixed into liposomal VC. Hope that doesn't damage it in any way. So far so good. hope to notice some improvements soon.

great RALA

Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA)
I have taken it straight and chase it with plenty of water and has a bite. Many people will want to mix it with a smoothie or a protein drink. I can not say yet how effective it yet I only just start using Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA). *

On 8/6/2015 Michael said...

Prompt delivery and well packaged. The instructions and information on the packaging is very well done. Very satisfied with the service of Bulksupplements as always!*

On 8/2/2015 Yan said...

At the advise of my friend, I started taking R-ALA and ALCAR together twice a day. I already see a big difference in energy and clarity. I love the fast delivery and the packaging. *

testing out R-ALA for diabetic neuropathy
My husband was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 10 years ago. Until very recently, he did not need to take medication. He now takes the lowest dose of metformin ( which I am not in favor of!). Within the last couple of months, he's been experiencing some nerve/foot pain. My research led me to RALA. So, based on the studies outlined here: he will be trying high, daily doses. It's a pricey supplement and based on my research, Bulk Supplements offers the best price and most credible purity standards. The shipping is timely and the packaging of the product exceptional. *

On 7/18/2015 Lynette said...

Very Satisfied
Very potent stuff . Excellent quality, Great price . Feeling the results immediately. I use this to keep my hypoglycemia in check, besides not ever eating any sugar or junk foods. I also take GTF Chromium and find these products keep me from getting headaches and other symptoms of hypoglycemia. *

On 7/12/2015 JSB said...

I just started taking r-ALA combined with ALCAR both from Bulk Supplements and can already feel the effects on my skin. Once again, I really appreciate the ultra fast delivery of my orders along with the follow up from customer service, it's superior!*

On 7/7/2015 Marietha said...

Workout Stack
I love stacking some R-ALA with my BCAA's and DMG in my post-workout protein smoothies. The quality of this R-ALA is pure in form and I'm glad that I don't have to worry about additives junking up my mix. The quality stands out over other R-ALA products that I've tried in the past.

I'm so glad that I found BULKSUPPLEMENTS for all my supplement needs. I like knowing that BULKSUPPLEMENTS strives for both quality and consistency, unlike other retailers who add silica and other crap to to their products for added weight so that they can make money off of the unsuspecting.

I'm always happy with my purchases from BULKSUPPLEMENTS. Their customer service is world-class and their products can't be beat, as far as I'm concerned. BULKSUPPLEMENTS doesn't gouge you like other retailers. Great products at a great price, that's why I keep coming back to BULKSUPPLEMENTS.*

ALA Helped Lower My Blood Sugar
I'm a type 2 diabetic and I have been taking ALA for close to a year. BulkSupplements' powdered form of ALA, along with a proper diet, cinnamon, chromium, fish oil and a few other supplements have lowered my blood sugar so much that I am no longer on Metformin. My fasting glucose used to be over 180 and now I am seeing numbers between 98 and 114 first thing in the morning.

I trust Bulksupplements to deliver a quality product at a very affordable price. I highly recommend it. *

On 6/30/2015 Jorge said...

Big difference
I bought this product for both external and internal consumption. I made a ALA serum with Hyaluronic acid, the result is amazing skin texture and younger looking skin within days of using it. I take ALA as daily supplement as well. I love the speed in which Bulk Supplement ship orders. just incredible *

On 6/17/2015 jacob said...

I use 100 mg R-ALA in conjunction with 1000 mg berberine, 500 mg turmeric curcumin with 5 mg bioperine, and have found that these taken in this amount twice daily have a powerful effect on my blood sugar. I am type 2 diabetic & now am able to back off from taking so much insulin. We put the powder in capsules when we received it & so there is no unpleasant flavor & it is easy to take!*

On 6/9/2015 Richard said...

Very satisfied with the purchase
I sift Alpha Lipoic acid first and mix it with my other vitamin powders that I bought from Bulk Supplements. I take the mixed supplements every morning. It gives me energy. I don't feel tired at all after swimming one hour without break. I love all the powders that I bought from Bulk Supplements. I also put some in my vitamin C and Hyaluronic serum and also put it in my lotion. Thanks, Bulk Supplements. *

Great stuff

On 5/19/2015 Jerry said...

Fast shipping, accurate info
This was my first purchase from bulk, and I was extremely impressed with the amount of information provided on each product. Unlike most other companies, whose product details (if any are present at all) consist of marketing hype, your company provided accurate and very useful information. I prefer to make my own capsules and mixtures rather than buying manufactured capsules of unknown and possibly dubious quality. I'll be buying all my supplements here from now on. *

On 5/13/2015 Helene said...

Great Product and Great Company to Buy From
I got my R-ALA quicker than the estimated up to 5 days. It was here on the 3rd day.

Product is working better than I thought since I have never ordered or taken R-ALA before.

I would always recommend this company and keep ordering from Bulk Supplements.

You won't be let disappointed

On 4/15/2015 Elizabeth said...

Great product as expected
I got my R-ALA in the mail recently and am satisfied with the quality of it as i was my last 3 products. What i like is how much i can buy this in bulk compared to the pre-made capsules and just encapsulate the powder myself for less cost. I definitely noticed an increase in muscle fullness, energy and overall well being with this product as I've used many ALA products in the past. The powder is an authentic color and definitely feels like real R-ALA. *

On 3/30/2015 James said...

Great addition to my pre - workout stack and skin care products
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. *

Best ALA you can find!!
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.


On 3/16/2015 James said...

Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA)
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.

On 1/17/2015 Conrad said...

More energy
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.*

On 1/13/2015 Peter said...

Everybody should use it
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.*

Powerful Cost Efficient
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.*

Finest Quality ALA!
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...
