Now Foods, Alpha Lipoic Acid, 100 mg, 120 Vcaps
Posted by Reviewer2360401 on Aug 07, 2009
I am diabetic but I am not on medication. I control my blood sugar with vitamins, exercise, and I watch my diet. Alpha Lipoic Acid helps to lower my blood sugar, without fail. I never run out of it. Now Foods is a superior company whose prices, compared with their good quality cannot be beat.

Would have been better without other ingredients like silica & magnesium stearate.
Great for Hypoglycemia
Posted by Reviewer2760326 on Nov 24, 2012
I purchased this product to help control my hypoglycemia after meals. I was a bit skeptical as I have tried multiple products in the past with little result, but after reading the reviews I decided to give it a try. Well, I have to say this stuff works! It has a mild effect but I can definitely tell that it's working. I no longer feel as jittery, sleepy and tired when I take it after heavy carb meals. It has definitely improved my well being and I will be purchasing it again.

Reduce Diabetes Risk

I have taken this for a long time plus my prescribed medications. I stopped for a while to see what would happen. I had less control without it. As soon as I started taking it again, the control of my diabetes improved.

An everyday must!

I take R-Lipoic Acid or Alpha Lipoic Acid every day, always with vitamin C. It's a great antioxidant, and it also helps with controlling hunger because it improves the blood sugar levels. I usually take it after a good breakfast.
Good for me!

It's easy to swallow and a good price. Less expensive here than vitaminlife and free shipping with orders over $40 (which is easy for me to spend). I take with Now foods NAC 250 caps to produce glutathione. I have good energy taking them both. Can't take energy pills while breastfeeding, so this is good for me and is a super antioxidant for every cell in combination with the NAC. It makes my skin look great too.

I take this with Acetyl L Carnitine from NOW and they get the job done.
Still new to the product
Posted by Reviewer1577898 on Jun 15, 2008
I haven't noticed anything spectacular because I am new to the product (I've been taking it for 3 weeks now). I just noticed that your urine smells like (when you eat) asparagus.
