In the late 1990’s, the remarkable properties of alpha lipoic acid were beginning to be recognized by a broader segment of the scientific community. Scientific reports from Germany demonstrated that alpha lipoic acid was effective in alleviating the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy when it was administered intravenously, but less effective upon oral administration. Recognizing the drawbacks associated with oral dosage forms of alpha lipoic acid, a project was initiated by our formulation scientists to develop a solubilized formulation that would deliver enhanced alpha lipoic acid blood-levels that are closer to levels achieved with alpha lipoic acid administered intravenously. ThioGel was developed as a result of ground-breaking formulation research. ThioGel has a 10-year track record of superior performance in the hands of physicians, holistic practitioners, and individual consumers.
Even though the Antibioticos alpha lipoic acid costs more than five times the cost of Chinese sources, the proven safety and efficacy of the Antibioticos ALA outweighs any economic benefit from using Chinese-source material. Emphasizing patient safety is particularly important in a situation where large quantities of the active ingredient are consumed over long periods of time. The management and staff of Ethical Alternative Products firmly believes in the effectiveness and quality of ThioGel products. We welcome calls or E-Mails to discuss the features and benefits of our unique product portfolio, and are always willing to answer any questions related to the use of our products.
Formulation scientists have devised a variety of means to break-down poorly soluble substances to enhance absorption and bioavailability. The scientists who
developed the ThioGel solubilized formulation, performed ground-breaking work on the unique amphipathic structure of alpha lipoic acid, achieving a molecular dispersion that facilitated absorption in the intestines. The ThioGel micelle structure was demonstrated to result in a two to three-fold increase in plasma levels of alpha lipoic acid, versus several crystal (powder) based products. Bioavailability studies were conducted on the ThioGel formulation in rabbits and humans using 50 mg and 400 mg doses. Bioavailability, which is defined as the "extent to which the active moiety enters the systemic circulation, thereby gaining access to the site of action", was substantially greater for the ThioGel formulation vs. the powder-based products.
Almost all alpha lipoic acid products are formulated as capsules or tablets, using powdered raw material alpha lipoic acid. There are no good reasons to formulate alpha lipoic acid products in this manner, but there is a considerable saving in manufacturing cost. Kinesiology studies repeatedly show that ThioGel is the favored source of alpha lipoic acid, no doubt because it gets more of the alpha lipoic acid molecule to where it is destined to go.
We are so sure you will benefit from ThioGel’s enhanced performance, we will ship you your first month’s supply for free. Simply pay a small shipping and handling fee and start realizing the benefits of the miracle molecule.
It is recommended that you start taking 1 or 2 ThioGel doses every day, once in the morning, and if needed, once again at night. The dose you use will depend on the condition you are seeking to stabilize.
Oxidative stress is not a condition that can always be perceived by the senses, but the restorative properties of alpha lipoic acid, delivered in enhanced ThioGel form, will contribute to your overall sense of well-being. Relief of oxidative stress should also be reflected in future measures of bodily functions that are adversely affected.
