Very pleased with this product. I´m 21 and I´ve ordered it in orded to increase effectiveness of Acetyl L-Carnitine and boost brain performance, but I can see many more benefits. 1. really dramatically helped my acne (within 2 weeks my acne went from mild/moderete to none, helps with healing scars as well) 2. can feel much more energy through the day, don´t feel slugish after high carb meals 3. my mind is clearer and performs much better than ever before 4. helps with my gym performance I take in with various different supplements, e.g. Astaxanthin, DHA, vitamin D3, ALCAR, Ginkgo to name a few, but this one has really an edge. However, taking it twice daily, I experience dry lips and skin, so lower dose may be better (300mg 2-3 times daily).
Great product but a word of warning

I have used this product in the past and it seemed to have a great effect, however I have recently read about its powerful chelating properties that when used properly for this purpose it can have positive effects but you need to be well informed about the way it chelates mercury in particular as it can cross the brain barrier if taken the wrong way it can make things worse by allowing more mercury enter the brain and be dropped in there because of its half life according to Dr Culter's protocol, so I urge any one taking alpha lipoic acid supplements to first read about this matter since you can do more harm than good if you have mercury toxicity and take this supplement the wrong way. blessings
This is a good product!

Alpha-lipoic acid for glucose control
Posted by Reviewer2837930 on Oct 12, 2011
I am a diabetic attempting to control blood glucose levels with diet and exercise, mostly by eating less and fewer carbohydrates or foods with a high glyceamic index. I read that taurine, vanadyl sulfate, and alpha-lipoic acid may assist in glucose control and started using these products two weeks ago. My blood sugar readings have improved since but it is not entirely clear whether this is because of the supplements or because of reduced carbohydrate intake. If you want to try it yourself, I recommend not changing your diet and exercise habits so that you can be sure.

I can only use about 1/2 or less of pill. I think it's aggravating my insomnia. So maybe I don't need as much.
My legs don't hurt anymore
Posted by Reviewer1839047 on Oct 28, 2016
I was taking a prescription for leg circulation and leg cramps. Being a diabetic, I wanted something that would help and more importantly, not be a prescription drug. I started taking the Alpha-Lipoic Acid several years ago and it has helped my greatly.
This product works well for restoring sensations in the feet

I have numb feet don't know why however I take this and some of the feeling returns. When I quit taking it within a couple of weeks the numbness returns so I take it. Have taken it for years.
