Now Foods, Alpha Lipoic Acid, 600 mg, 60 Veggie Caps
By Now Foods9 Reviews
Expiration Date: May 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

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 vitamin 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.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I developed severe neuropathy (nerve pain)and was prescribed an anti-seizure drug called gabapentin. I oftn felt out-of-body and totally spaced-out. After driving 90 miles home at over 75 mph and no memory of the time-lapse or my driving enviroment, I decided to search for an alternative. A naturopath suggested 1200-1800mg per day. I use the NOW Foods 600mg time-release 2-3 times per day now. It took a few weeks to get relief and I have occaisional flare-ups, I take an additional capsulse four hours after the last one and I get relief. I'm sure this supplement saved my life and possibly someone else's since driving unaware of surroundings can be hazardous!
I use to take a lower dosage until my I notice a little weight gain so I decieded to go higher and try Now Foods 600 mg...Great! If you already workout this is a great supplement to incorporate into your plan so far this product has made a significant difference in my husband and myself with our weight loss. Great product. I will continue to purchase this product.
