Alpha lipoic acid, ALA for short, is a cellular coenzyme and antioxidant that protects cells against free radical oxidative damage and inflammation. Recent research has shown its potential to raise type 1 interferon response to viral infections. It is currently the subject of scientific studies as a possible therapeutic aid for current treatments. As a strong antioxidant that also helps 'recycle' glutathione, vitamin C, vitamin E and other antioxidants, and with few side effects, I personally see benefit in taking it daily. I like the Doctor's Best brand and this ALA is good value compared to others I've seen. Take 1 before breakfast and 1 before dinner for best results.

For me, the best Alpha-Lipoic Acid supplement I've tried. And its really inexpensive, too. Alpha-Lipoic Acid can help w/ peripheral neuropathy, some erectile disfunction, , & some diabetic issues. For me at least, too much causes itching, so when I tried a national brand at 600 mg per dose, I had the itching response. Halving the dose all but eliminated the itch, so I settled on 150 mg as the best dosage *for me*. Anyone interested in taking alpha-lipoic acid should do their own research, & determine for themselves if it may be beneficial.

Quality is really good. I tried some other ALA products and they did not feel as good. My liver even got a bit sensitive with them. This one from Dr. Best seems to work for me without any liver sensitivity. The price is excellent. As I said I took other ALA products much more costly and they did not compare. However, I only take them in combination with Milk Thistle and Vitamin C to ensure that any toxins can be removed quickly when ALA activates them. So far I felt it improved my liver but I am taking them only for a week and then stop. My body does not tolerate it to take them longer.

I am buying this supplement on regular basis and Dr Best is the best ). fantastic result with supporting liver function, also it improves metabolic functions, including fat burning, collagen production, and blood glucose control. Because liver is our body's primary filtration system, it converting toxins into waste products, cleansing your blood, and metabolizing nutrients. Aklpha lipoic acid helps liver to work properly. I feel like 10 years younger after taking the course of this supplement.

I used to take this a while back about 10 years ago. I think I was too young to take it. Now I feel as I get older this supplement is appropriate. My heart abd arteries feel so much better. I am walking more. This is another supplement that was recommended from one of the doctors on YouTube for anti aging.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid is helpful in so many areas of health; being essential for certain enzymes to perform their function, it helps energy production, nerve function, and reduced inflammation, as well as possibly helping to reduce blood sugar levels. I tried this supplement at first, but then switched to a 600 mg capsule, as it seemed prudent to take a larger amount. It's worth figuring out which dosage is best for you.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a strong antioxidant, so you get all kinds of great stuff from it. I bought this supplement to help detox my liver and though I cannot see tangible results - I have no lab test results to prove the benefits, I'm sure it does a wonderful job. You might also wanna try the ALA + Benfotiamine - another quality product from Doctor's Best and a great combo for blood sugar metabolism and more.

A potent and cost-effective source of high-quality alpha-lipoic acid that we use to assist with improving glucose tolerance and overall metabolic efficiency in the production of ATP, the end energy transfer metabolite for all cells in the human body. The impact of taking it along with a good broad multi-vitamin-mineral supplement is a greater sense of wellbeing and sustained energy.

I am 68 and I have been using alpha lipoic acid (ALA) for years, every 8 hours and with it I have avoided any new painful episode of gout. ALA is called the universal antioxidant or the master antioxidant par excellence, as it mobilizes free radicals (metabolic waste) and improves the action of other antioxidants. ALA behaves like the uric enzyme that humans do not have and also supplies the loss of the enzyme hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyl transferase. It allows metabolizing circulating uric acid and significantly improves the changes produced in the joints, tophi and kidney disease. ALA is also produced in large quantities in the first years of life. After that, it decreases, reaching low levels in old age and that's why you should take it and much better together with B vitamin complex.
