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

- Helps maintain a healthy blood sugar level when used as part of the diet

Keep in mind if you are loaded with heavy metals taking a lot of this stuff (over 50mg) could be a bad idea. Large doses will cause a massive redistribution of metals from safe places to unsafe places (brain, heart) which is why many people report adverse reactions. I use this product for chelation but I use it every three hours at 10mg. If I take 150mg I get too many mental symptoms. Potent and effective product.

Took as directed, no change. Wasted my money
Bit of a toss up as to whether it benefits or detracts.

It's a bit of a coin toss as to whether I get benefits and no side effects, or side effects with no benefits. On one hand, when it works, I feel more energetic, and actually quite bright. I feel more clear headed. On the other, when it doesn't, I start feeling fatigued, run down, get neck pain and headaches, and feel like I'm about to squirm out of my skin. I also really, really need to stim -- that is, I feel like I *need* to be pressed on all sides, like I need to be squished between two mattresses or given a really intense cuddling. It's very unpleasant, like an itch I can't scratch. After reading what people had to say about how ALA can move "toxins" around the body if you don't take care to add detox support, I've started mixing 1tsp of activated charcoal powder with 1tbsp of coconut oil, and taking that half an hour after ALA. I've only tried it once so far and I was OK for that dose, but it might just be the coin toss was in my favour this time.
