Truly superior !!!
Posted by panaceaspecialist on Sep 12, 2013
I have insulin resistance, that's why I bought these. I's just amazing how this particular ALA gives me energy, feeling of well-being, and my cravings and continuous hunger are completely unnoticeable . I have bought Doctor's Best ALA, but nothing compares with the effect that I get with this one. ALA from Doctor's Best contains a lot of fillers that makes me feel kind of sick. I will stick to Healthy Origins from now on.
Alpha Lipoic Acid

Thanks to the gentleman whom recommended taking 600 mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid 2x's a day with CoQ10 100 mg a day my pain and numbness in the legs and feet are almost gone. I definately recommend both Healthy Orgins, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Doctor's Best High Absorption CoQ10 as he did. Finally, I can get a decent night sleep without the fear of waking up suddenly with severe pain. God bless Him.

Very good. Following professor of Chemistry at Princeton University Andrew Cutler's protocol as put out in his books, this is a very potent substance for getting rid of heavy metals. Also it boosts glutathione, which gives at least me ~20 hours of increased activity.

New to this particular brand, but swear by Alpha Lipoic Acid. Very important for any issues with the BRAIN

I use it together with DMAE, CoQ10 and collagen. I adhere to a rule that "the beauty begins from within". This complex allows me to support skin in an elastic, smooth condition, constrains emergence of wrinkles. It is convenient to use. Thanks.

I am taking this product to help with my neuropathy in my feet. I take one cap per day and I do notice a difference when I run out so I make sure that doesn't happen.

With my age of 85, this has helped keep my joints from getting more arthritic.
BEST PRICED ALA!
Posted by 4917743866453743768 on Oct 16, 2013
Great value ALA, water and fat soluble antioxidant. I'm taking this for Peripheral Neuropathy. I can't say I've noticed a difference yet at 1 capsule daily. I will try stopping it for a few days/increasing the dose to see if I notice a difference with the neuropathy then will post further notes. Apart from that my skin is benefiting, I look younger. Very pleased with iherb service.
Displayed formulation is incorrect
Posted by Reviewer3039646 on Feb 02, 2012
This formula is not simply ALA plus a gelatin capsule. The capsule also contains magnesium stearate, which is *not* displayed on the iHerb product page as part of the formulation and which I was trying to avoid. ALA is tough enough to absorb without making the problem worse by coating it with grease. As far as I can tell, this is the first time iHerb has made this kind of mistake on the products I buy, but that doesn't return me to a state of happiness on this product. I'll use it up and not rebuy.
Be careful is you have a weak heart

One tablet put me into heart failure for a period of 24 hours, very unplesant experience. I tried again about 3 days later after having recovered but the result was the same. On the internet I have have since read other stories of heart related reactions to ALA in high doses. Clearly some people with heart problems do not cope well with high doses of ALA. I would suggest trying a lower dose first if you are a first time user, most people it would seem do not have a problem.
