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."

Very pleased with this product. I´m 21 and I´ve ordered it in orded to increase effectiveness of Acetyl L-Carnitine and boost brain performance, but I can see many more benefits. 1. really dramatically helped my acne (within 2 weeks my acne went from mild/moderete to none, helps with healing scars as well) 2. can feel much more energy through the day, don´t feel slugish after high carb meals 3. my mind is clearer and performs much better than ever before 4. helps with my gym performance I take in with various different supplements, e.g. Astaxanthin, DHA, vitamin D3, ALCAR, Ginkgo to name a few, but this one has really an edge. However, taking it twice daily, I experience dry lips and skin, so lower dose may be better (300mg 2-3 times daily).
I suffered from nerve-related symptoms of diabetes. My legs are numb ,I can't hardly walk even for a single step.After I taken this supplement for three weeks I feel better.It seems good.
Great product but a word of warning

I have used this product in the past and it seemed to have a great effect, however I have recently read about its powerful chelating properties that when used properly for this purpose it can have positive effects but you need to be well informed about the way it chelates mercury in particular as it can cross the brain barrier if taken the wrong way it can make things worse by allowing more mercury enter the brain and be dropped in there because of its half life according to Dr Culter's protocol, so I urge any one taking alpha lipoic acid supplements to first read about this matter since you can do more harm than good if you have mercury toxicity and take this supplement the wrong way. blessings
This product works well for restoring sensations in the feet

I have numb feet don't know why however I take this and some of the feeling returns. When I quit taking it within a couple of weeks the numbness returns so I take it. Have taken it for years.

Excellent product, good price. I had been taking it for three months for neuropathy and blood sugar control. Now I have to come down 300 mg/2xs day for maintenance.
