Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is naturally produced in the human body in very small amounts, but is also available in some foods. ALA is unique in that it supports the body’s antioxidant systems and can function in both water and fat environments. ALA can also recycle vitamins C and E, thereby enhancing their antioxidant activities. ALA helps to promote the maintenance of healthy neural tissues in conjunction with its supporting role of proper glucose metabolism and cardiovascular function.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1 to 2 times daily, preferably with food.
Cellulose (capsule), cellulose powder, magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silica.
Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.
This extra strength product has more Alpha Lipoic Acid (600 mg per capsule) than our regular strength product (100 mg per capsule).
Store in a cool, dry place after opening.
Caution: For adults only. Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children.

I have been using all of these products for Hasimoto's thyroiditis will excellent results. Labs are normal and symptoms are gone.
My mother is 81 and has been taking 1200mg/day for the past 5 years. She has Alzheimers and has not gotten worse. She still remembers all of us, and only once in awhile she will repeat what she just told us. We swear by this stuff. My brother and I are both taking it now (in our 50's)
WARNING!!! Do not use if you are mercury intoxicated

I bought this product for liver support, not knowing that Alpha Lipoic Acid = ALA. I am on a long and well thought out detox program, which starts with bowel cleanse and liver cleanse, and then mercury detox. I didn't read all the info on the mercury detox yet because that comes later and it is a lot of info. So first a did the Now Foods Bowel Cleanse, which worked well, I lost the bloating tummy and felt much better. Then I went to phase II: liver cleanse and liver support. Here, Alpha Lipoic Acid is one of the many recommended products. I took one cap every day, And I started to feel so awful after a couple of day... It was like the first years of my mercury intoxication period, right after my new silver fillings had been placed. I felt awful, nauseous, severe intestinal pains, weakness, mind fog, outraged, crying and shouting at everyone, crippled, not knowing what to do and where to go, panick attacks. My blood pressure raise. My ears started ringing. I couldn't sleep no more. I had to keep my mind clear and try to find out what was going on. I went through some files on my computer already prepared for the mercury detox in the future I was planning. There I found many, many warnings: do not use ALA in high doses and unprepared. ALA must be taken in very small doses to start with (from 1 mg to 12 mg!) and because of it's half life, you have to take it every 3 hours, not one minute later. "Taking it less often means running a higher risk of regression or damage. Taking large single doses or once a day doses can result in permanent neurological and other damage. Challenge tests are an example of this kind of usage." This is because ALA (= Alpha Lipoic Acid) is the only mercury chelator that can go to the brain and bind the mercury sitting there. It then goes back to the blood and after 3 hrs, it's half life, it releases the mercury, which then goes to anywhere it wants, but mainly the kidney, liver and intestines. Luckily I had stopped after 4 days of 600 mg of ALA. To start to feel normal took one more week. Well, normal, I am still thrown back in a state where I was years ago, before starting supplementing. Positive side: I know now for sure that I have mercury in my brain and lots of it. Other positive thing: this was a wake-up call for me and I will start the Andy Cutler protocol asap (find it on the web), a protocol followed by thousands of heavy metal intoxicated persons. So when you buy this product, make sure you have first read about ALA and mercury detox, and take the 600 mg as a single dose ONLY IF you are absolutely sure that you have absolutely no heavy metals in your brain.
