Does R-lipolic Acid mobilize mercury?

    I am investigating a Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer supplement that contains:

    R-Lipoic Acid (as microencapsulated Bio-Enhanced® stabilized Na-RALA sodium R-lipoate)

    Does this work exactly like ALA in that it stirs up mercury? It is dangerous or unwise to take twice per day, as recommended by the supplement makers?

    I am not an expert but as far as I can read the documented chelating effects are all about ALA.
    RLA is not much talked about, besides the anti-oxidant effects.

    I would expect it to move the mercury around, but to which degree? I have no idea.
