Works at a good price

Posted by iHerb Customer on May 16 2011 | Verified Purchase

Keep in mind if you are loaded with heavy metals taking a lot of this stuff (over 50mg) could be a bad idea. Large doses will cause a massive redistribution of metals from safe places to unsafe places (brain, heart) which is why many people report adverse reactions. I use this product for chelation but I use it every three hours at 10mg. If I take 150mg I get too many mental symptoms. Potent and effective product.

Thanks for your feedback!

Cells need this stuff for energy production.

"Alpha lipoic acid is a fatty acid found naturally inside every cell in the body. It's needed by the body to produce the energy for our body's normal functions. Alpha lipoic acid converts glucose (blood sugar) into energy. Alpha lipoic acid is also an antioxidant, a substance that neutralizes potentially harmful chemicals called free radicals. What makes alpha lipoic acid unique is that it functions in water and fat, unlike the more common antioxidants vitamins C and E, and it appears to be able to recycle antioxidants such as vitamin C and glutathione after they have been used up. Glutathione is an important antioxidant that helps the body eliminate potentially harmful substances. Alpha lipoic acid increases the formation of glutathione." WEb MD

I really noticed a difference in the digestion of food, no more bloating and discomfort with carbs. This product will always be a part of my daily routine.

There's nothing wrong with this product. It works for a number of people. But, after comparing a-Lipoic with r-Lipoic, I'll opt for the r-Lipoic.

My husband takes this. He was borderline diabetic and this seems to have helped to move him out of that category, along with other vitamins.

Chelate mercury

Good for chelating mercury on Andy Cutler's protocol. It's big dose so be careful. More than 100mg is no suitable for everyone.

Recommended for PCOS

This powerful antioxidant contributes to regulating your blood-sugar levels because it releases energy by burning glucose, and it also helps make you more insulin sensitive. In addition, it has an effect on weight loss because if the glucose is being used for energy, your body releases less insulin and you store less fat. It also supports your liver function, which helps detoxify unwanted hormones. Check out my other reviews on herbs/supplements I take for PCOS.

Excellent price and great product.

Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that's in many foods, and it's made naturally in our bodies. Alpha-lipoic acid protects against free radicals that can damage the lining of blood vessels and helps with type 2 diabetes,also helps to extinguish inflammation, prevents plaque formation in blood vessels, and lowers triglycerides. You can maintain your still-dewy skin if you add every day ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin E, green tea, niacinamide, and alpha lipoic acid. I recommend this product! Thanks.

This is a good dosage. I was having some stomach problems at the beginning with other doses. With 150mg I could work my way up. My skin is so much better now.
