Excellent!This extra strength alpha lipoic acid is a very good quality dietary supplement! The ingredients are great and this ALA composition is combined with other antioxidants such as grape seed and black pepper extract. Package has good amout of capsules and the capsule size is a bit big but ok to take it and has no taste.
Absolutely one of the best products I have ever rated. The spouse suffers from “restless legs” and has tried numerous other things to make it better with no success. Went to my doctor and he told her to try taking 600mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid tabs daily. Order this brand and another off Amazon that day and received them the same day. Well things sure are different now – since DAY 1, spouse has not had one single night of “restless legs” and cannot even begin to express how happy she is. Will rate both brands I ordered as excellent only differences between the two brands are the number of pills you take each day. Otherwise, they both are great – WOW – absolutely fantastic products.
I like this product and I've been using it for the antioxidant properties. Capsules are slightly larger than other supplements I've tried, but personally I am not bothered. If you are someone who struggles to take large pills you can try to open them up and pour the content in yoghurt or a smoothie, that's what my sister does and she has also used this product and is very happy doing it this way. They do not give me any side affects and I am really pleased. I will definitely continue using this supplement from NOW Foods.
Great quality ingredients that are also naturally occurring in the body. on the slightly larger size for capsules. Dose is one tablet daily. ot will make your urine stink like sulfur but it's a common side effect to taking alpha lipoic acid. I take it to help with inflammatory diseases. seems to work really well with PEA
I was recommended this by my nutritionist who believes it could help with the beginnings of my diabetic neuropathy. I was not convinced yet, but upon trying it, I found that it really does help manage the tingling and burning sensations I was feeling. This seems to be the only brand that offers the 600mg at a decent price, so I would purchase this again.
This is the correct dosage (600mg) I read in a medical study that proved that ALA is helpful to relieve diabetic symptoms of neuropathy and paresthesia orally over a 5 week period. Its easy to google the study. I bought this for my mother. I am happy there is only one pill to add to her regime of supplements and medications. 4 month supply.
I supplement with ALA because of its antioxidant properties. This one in particular, from Now foods - a great quality brand I trust - has no nasty ingredients nor fillers an I bought it on promotion, here on iHerb, at a better price than at my local chemist. I take one capsule per day, at lunchtime: it is easy to swallow and does not give me any side effects. It comes in a 60 capsule package which should last for about two months.
Excellent value for money! I have ALS. I take it in the morning with other supplements. For me, vitamins are an indispensable supplement, its benefits are important for my immune system. I feel stronger and more resistant to the disease, ALS is progressing more slowly. I highly recommend it. If you think my comment was helpful, click yes!
My husband, after a stroke in the thalamus, suffered a lot from sensations like electricity on the right side of his body, since taking 2x600 mg of alpha lipoic acid, he experienced an almost complete relief of the symptoms, if he stops taking it for a few days he feels the difference, as far as he is concerned it is with him forever
