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

I decided to try ALpha-Lipoic Acid after reading about its potential to help people manage living with Relapsing Remitting MS, as well as, a variety of other chronicn health challenges. I selected the Doctor's Best Brand because I know of them to be reputable from previous experience with some of their other products. I was amazed at how quickly I experienced results. This product has helped to reduce MS fatigue. It is also helping to decrease neuropathic pain that I have in one foot. I will definitely keep using it.
I have tried many different A-L acids, including jarrow's "sustain." This is the first A-L that helps with my blood sugar and cravings. I am very happy with this product, and the price is unbeatable! I will definitely re-order.

I'm 46 and have a bad lower back that I've inheredited. Last year, I began researching supplements for my back issues and found someone that had written about alpha lipoic acid for her husband's back issues. I started with another brand initially which actually worked wonders. I started using this brand this year after great reviews of their different lines of vitamins and supplements. It works just as well. I've found that it takes about 2 to 3 weeks before working but it has helped me tremendously without the need for pain meds. I take 600mg once a day, every day. If I stop taking it, the back pain does start back so it's needed on a daily basis.
Good for Keto Adaption. I use It when I shredded.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid was prescribed to me by the renowned Holistic Medical doctor, Dr Sandra Cabot. I had severe peripheral neuropathy from Diabetes, and she set out to find something(s) to relieve the pain of the burning, and allow me to get a good night's sleep. The Alpha-Lipoic Acid is used in conjunction with a cream, specially formulated by Dr Cabot, (made by a Compounding Pharmacist), and I am ecstatic to report that I now sleep all night, without waking from the burning of my feet, and this is for the first time in 10 years! I am, as one can imagine, over the moon. Doctor's Best Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a truly brilliant product. One that I might never have discovered, had I not gone to see Dr Cabot. My GP kept prescribing pharmaceutical products like Lyrica which provided no relief whatsoever! Thank you Doctor's Best, to my mind Dr Cabot and you are simply .... the Best!
great product. noticable diff
