R-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that protects brain and nerve cells from free radicals. It reduces the buildup of iron in the brain which is thought to contribute to Parkinson's disease. It also supports healthy blood sugar metabolism to prevent insulin resistance. S (-) lipoic acid does not have these benefits and in some cases even thwarts them.
