I am taking R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (RALA) as a supplement, however apparently it's very unstable and polymerizes at about 40-50 degrees C and becomes unabsorbable. Apparently it also polymerizes when it reaches the stomach. There are also stabilized forms such as Na-RALA and K-RALA. Now what i want to know is what happens when this chelated form reaches the stomach. Wouldn't the RALA immediately dissociate from the cation and still polymerize? I am probably way off here, but i would much appreciate it if someone could explain to me what happens when it reaches the stomach. Cheers.
