No magnesium stearate and/or steric acid added.

This is one of the few brands of alpha lipoic acid that comes without the harmful excipients of magnesium stearate and/or steric acid added. These substances are only added to aid in the ease of filling the capsules on the manufacturing floor. They serve as powder lubricants in capsules and as binders in tablets manufacturing. In high doses magnesium stearate and/or steric acid is toxic to the liver and when this is used as excipients in most capsules and tablets, it all adds up to high doses when you have to take more than one type of nutraceuticals per day that contains these two excipients. I choose to buy this over other brands because of the lack of magnesium stearate and/or steric acid as excipients and also because it comes in much smaller doses than most brands and this is convenient to give to people of smaller body sizes and to dogs as well. Alpha lipoic acid is nothing short of being the best repair/regenerative nutrient for damaged or diseased livers, even at the late stage of liver disease, and Dr. Burton Berkson, M.D has been the first person in the U.S to successfully bring hopeless cases of end stage liver patients back to health without resorting to liver transplants by just using alpha lipoic acid, silymarin and selenomethionine, along with some B-complex, vit. E, C and CoQ10.

Just the right dosage per capsule

Most of the CoQ10 dosage out there are ridiculously large. This is just right for me to adjust the dosage for myself and is obviously small enough for my dog as well. Hope they don't decide to discontinue this product in the future.
