I love this product. R-lipoic acid is much better than regular alpha lipoic acid. This is what the body makes itself. Almost no side effects compared to regular. Clean product with no bad extra stuff in it. This is a rather high dose. I divide it to new capsules 50mg per capsule. More economical that way. And you are unlikely to have any effect if you just take 1 capsule per day since lipoic acid is broken down in the body in about 3 hours. So if you want a detoxifying effect take one 50mg capsule every 3 hours for 2,6 days (3 days and 2 nights) even at night but stretch it to 4 hours at night. If you heavily poluted with mercury and other heavy metals 50 mg might be to high to start with.

blood sugar levels, strengthen kidneys, antioxidant - neutralizes harmful free radicals, modulates immune system. Alpha lipoic acid can cross the blood-brain barrier, and is thought to protect brain and nerve tissue by preventing free radical damage.
I take two of these daily - and have found my energy levels have improved, as well as my brain function.
