Product Overview

Description
  • Science-Based
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Defends Against Free Radicals
  • Not Suitable for Vegetarians

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a fatty acid that functions like a vitamin, although it is not classified as a vitamin. As a coenzyme, ALA plays an important role in the metabolism of glucose that produces energy in cells. ALA also has antioxidant properties and thus is important for controlling free radicals. Because it is soluble in both water and fat, ALA is sometimes referred to as the "universal antioxidant."

  • Supports the body's defenses against free radicals
  • Recycles antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin C and vitamin E
  • Helps maintain a healthy blood sugar level when used as part of the diet
Suggested Use

Adult Use: Take 1 to 6 capsules daily, with or without food.

Other Ingredients

Cellulose, magnesium stearate (vegetable source), gelatin (capsule).

Works at a good price

Posted by Reviewer2638624 on Jun 09, 2011

Keep in mind if you are loaded with heavy metals taking a lot of this stuff (over 50mg) could be a bad idea. Large doses will cause a massive redistribution of metals from safe places to unsafe places (brain, heart) which is why many people report adverse reactions. I use this product for chelation but I use it every three hours at 10mg. If I take 150mg I get too many mental symptoms. Potent and effective product.

Cells need this stuff for energy production.

Posted by holyvitaminsbatman on Aug 24, 2012

"Alpha lipoic acid is a fatty acid found naturally inside every cell in the body. It's needed by the body to produce the energy for our body's normal functions. Alpha lipoic acid converts glucose (blood sugar) into energy. Alpha lipoic acid is also an antioxidant, a substance that neutralizes potentially harmful chemicals called free radicals. What makes alpha lipoic acid unique is that it functions in water and fat, unlike the more common antioxidants vitamins C and E, and it appears to be able to recycle antioxidants such as vitamin C and glutathione after they have been used up. Glutathione is an important antioxidant that helps the body eliminate potentially harmful substances. Alpha lipoic acid increases the formation of glutathione." WEb MD

Not a Favorite

Posted by Reviewer2580814 on Jun 02, 2008

There's nothing wrong with this product. It works for a number of people. But, after comparing a-Lipoic with r-Lipoic, I'll opt for the r-Lipoic.
