The body under optimum conditions may be able to manufacture enough alpha-lipoic acid for its metabolic functions (as a co-factor for a number of enzymes involved in converting fat and sugar to energy), but additional amounts provided by supplements allow alpha-lipoic acid to circulate in a "free" state. In this state, alpha-lipoic acid has the unique ability to function as both a water- and fat-soluble antioxidant. I give four stars because of abundance of fillers in these tablets.

Thanks for your feedback!

Awesome dose for Andy's mercury chelation protocol

Posted by MichaelLabib on August 19 2012 | Verified Purchase

If you are not familiar with Andy's mercury chelation protocol, please google it. If you have Amalgam fillings, then you must google Andy's mercury chelation protocol. As a warning taking ALA while having Amalgam fillings is really not advised, it will harm you. Anyway, I split the tablet in half so I take 25mg every 3 hours. After few rounds on the protocol, I must say I'm getting better. This is the lowest dose I found oh iherb, so thank you iherb and thank you source naturals :)

Thanks for your feedback!

Alpha lipoic acid

Posted by iHerb Customer on June 1 2008 | Verified Purchase

Alpha lipoic acid should be considered an essential medication for every person with diabetes or pre-diabetes, since it has been shown to decrease progression of diabetic neuropathy, diabetic eye disease and diabetic kidney disease. In clinical trials in Germany, doses as high as 1200 mg were given, but I have seen better clinical responses to 100 mg a day (decreased neuropathic pain). A rare patient will get joint aches from higher doses, and for them the 50 mg dose, daily or every other day, may allow some of the benefits. This is the only preparation at 50 mg that I could locate.

Thanks for your feedback!

Best Value ALA

Posted by iHerb Customer on November 26 2016 | Verified Purchase

There a a couple of brands that I find more potent, but they are much more expensive. I always have a bottle of these with me for relief from neuropathy. This dosage works well for Cutler detox protocol.

Thanks for your feedback!

Good for frequent low dose mercury chelation

Cheap and good dose to be used on Cutler's mercury detox protocol.

Thanks for your feedback!

good size and seems effective

Posted by iHerb Customer on March 30 2010 | Verified Purchase

I'm using this for mercury chelation according to the Cutler protocol. The effects are more noticeable to me than the Jarrow ALA I tried last, so I am assuming it is potent ALA.

Thanks for your feedback!

Works fine, like the small size

Posted by iHerb Customer on January 24 2009 | Verified Purchase

Works just as well as any other ALA. I use the small dose for the Andy Cutler mercury detox protocol.

Thanks for your feedback!
