Product Description

R-alpha lipoic acid

Glucorell-R contains a combination of pure R + alpha lipoic acid and biotin. The R-alpha lipoic acid in Glucorell-R has a purity of more than 99%, in contrast to the regular alpha lipoic acid with a purity of only 50%.

Glucorell-R is a completely natural supplement with two active ingredients; R-alpha lipoic acid and biotin, which act together as a two-unit and form an effective combination.

Benefits of R-Alpha Lipoic acid

  • Supports the normal functioning of the nervous system
  • Contributes to a clear mind
  • Contributes to learning achievements
  • Good for the state of mind
  • For spiritual energy


Quality and purity

For the optimal effect of each alpha lipoic acid product, the purity is of great importance. Glucorell-R is therefore independently tested for purity by Covance Laboratories in Wisconsin.

Differences in lipoic acid

Molecules exist naturally in living mechanisms in general but in one form. But if molecules are synthetically produced, the end result is not one molecule but an impure mix of two molecules that are very similar. This mix has a 50/50 composition, so for half consists of the natural molecule and the other half consists of the unnatural molecule. The molecules or stereoisomers are exact mirror images of each other but are both chemically unique.

R-Alpha lipoic acid versus S-Alpha lipoic acid

Regularly available alpha lipoic acid consists for 50% of the R- (natural) and for 50% of the S- (unnatural) stereoisomer. Most commercially available alpha lipoic acid products therefore consist of this mixed form. The R- and the S- both have a different effect in the body, even though they are very similar.

The R-stereoisomer is the form of lipoic acid that occurs naturally in plants, animals and the body. This form is responsible for the good effects of alpha lipoic acid and contains a number of unique properties. The S-stereoisomer, unlike the R-stereoisomer, does not occur in nature. S-lipoic acid is a synthetic by-product that occurs during the production of alpha lipoic acid. The big disadvantage is that the S-shape destroys the most important properties of the R-shape and thus also removes the effect.

Supplementing with S-alpha lipoic acid is therefore not the most effective and sensible way to get alpha lipoic acid. Unlike the other brands, Glucorell-R consists of 99+% pure R-alpha lipoic acid and this makes Glucorell-R more effective.


The commonly used dosage of 600mg per day of S-alpha lipoic acid is approximately equal to 100-150mg of the bioactive R-Alpha Lipoic acid. S-Alpha lipoic acid therefore remains significantly less effective at significantly higher doses than the pure R-Alpha Lipoic acid.

Alpha lipoic acid and biotin

When using all forms of alpha lipoic acid, it is important to take biotin. Biotin supports alpha lipoic acid in the body and together they form a powerful natural combination. Each Glucorell-R capsule contains standard 750mcg of biotin per 100mg R-alpha lipoic acid.

R-Alpha lipoic acid as an important molecule

For humans R-alpha lipoic acid is an important molecule, because it converts sugars into energy. The molecule can easily cross the blood-brain barrier. The addition of biotin is important as a synergist to support the normal functioning of the nervous system. The body also produces small amounts of R-Alpha lipoic acid in the mitochondria (energy cells in the body's cells), but as we get older, this production of R-Alpha Lipoic acid gradually decreases. Taking R-alpha lipoic acid causes the body to get enough.

Buy R-alpha lipoic acid

Ergomax delivers pure R-Alpha lipoic acid. The R-Alpha lipoic acid variant is more effective than the 'standard' Alpha lipoic acid (without "R").
