What it Does/How it Works:
At Alchemist Lab we prescribe and provide AOR’s R+ Lipoic Acid, which is 99% pure R+, the finest lipoic acid that we have seen at a reasonable price. Other mixtures of Lipoic Acid are 50/50 R+ and S- forms. The R+ form is natural and the S- form a synthetic version. Some researchers believe that the S- form actually inhibits the health benefits of the natural form, making it a so-called “evil twin.”
Dr. Berkson was a Cleveland doctor who saved two amanita phalloides (the death cap mushroom) patients with IV’s of Alpha Lipoic Acid in the 1970′s. Later he created the triple anti-oxidant treatment for Hepatitis C using Lipoic Acid, Milk Thistle, and Selenium. He was the first to popularize using Lipoic Acid for chronic hepatitis.
Hepatitis C is a disease of oxidation. Hepatocytes (liver cells) are damaged by reactive oxygen species (ROS) which are generated by the cells trying to kill the invading viruses. R Lipoic Acid is an universal anti-oxidant. The only compound that is both fat and water soluble.
Lipoic Acid is also invaluable as an antidote for acute poisonings. Lipoic Acid can be administered in high doses either intravenously (via IV) or by taking 4 capsules every 15 minutes for the treatment of a broad range of toxic exposures: Poisonous mushrooms, solvents, pesticides, radiation etc. Obviously, seek prompt medical attention if you experience acute or chronic poisoning of any sort.
