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.
Not sure it works at all
Not sure it works at all
took this for about a week after running out of R-Alpha Lipoic acid (this current product is the R and L racemate). On the plus, this variety does not make the typical alpha-lipoic acid type of "heartburn" when taken after a meal or in between. On the minus, I did not notice the effortless mental clarity experienced with other products. This does not mean it does not work, it just means I simply , I cannot tell whether the body is still wearing off the prior product or this one works. The R-ALA is the better deal for me.
good quality !

Great price, great product
One of the most important antioxidants

Alpha Lipoic acid is a key antioxidant in combating against free radicals. Use it in combination with NAC for even stronger defence. I found Doctors Best Alpha Lipoic better than other brands as it does not cause stomach burns which in general Alpha Lipoic tends to cause. This one is the mildest I have tried concerning stomach burn. About its results and effectiveness I will have to give it some time. This product in combination with NAC is also highly recommended to people with HEP-C virus.
Every body should take ALA

Doctor's Best, Best Alpha-Lipoic Acid, 600 mg, 60 Veggie Caps taken with Now Foods, NAC, 600 mg, 250 Veggie Caps These products have helped me enormously, to minimise the Jarisch Herxheimer effect that the body experiences when treating tick borne diseases. ALA and NAC combined are turned into Glutathione in the body. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant. Doctors Best ALA and Now Foods NAC combined, are nothing short of wonderful when treating Neuroborreliosis.
