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 for me....

I am both insulin resistant, and I suffer from mild hypothyroidism. I was very excited to try Alpha Lipoic Acid because it is supposed to be a very effective supplement to help with insulin sensitization. However, I found out after I ordered it that people who take thyroid medication should not take this supplement as it interacts with it, and blocks its effects. So, sadly I quit taking it. My rating is based on my own personal experience and dissapointment. I am sure that it is a great supplement for the right people
