Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid with Biotin -- 300 mg - 60 Capsules

Dual-nutrient formula combines 300 mg of alpha lipoic acid with 1000% of the Daily Value for biotin per single-capsule serving. What is Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid with Biotin? Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid with Biotin is a combination formula supplying 300 mg of alpha lipoic acid plus 3000 mcg of biotin per single-capsule serving. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a natural compound that functions as a co-factor in vital energy-producing reactions.* The body produces very little ALA on its own and it is difficult to obtain sufficient quantities from diet. Biotin is an essential B vitamin also known as vitamin H. It is a water-soluble vitamin that is not stored in the body and must be continually replaced. How do alpha lipoic acid and biotin support health? ALA is well known as a powerful antioxidant.*. It has been called a “universal antioxidant” because it is effective in water-based substances such as blood while its reduced metabolite dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA) is effective in fatty tissues and membranes.*. ALA enhances the antioxidant activity of vitamins C and E and coenzyme Q10. ALA may increase levels of glutathione the body’s most important antioxidant.*. ALA may promote cardiovascular health by protecting against free radical damage.*. Biotin supports the breakdown of fatty acids into energy for the body.*. Biotin supports the action of enzymes that affect the skin and intestinal tract.*. Biotin may help strengthen brittle nails.*. Why choose Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid with Biotin? Supplies both ALA and biotin in one easy-to-take capsule. Supplies 1000% of the Daily Value for biotin per each single-capsule serving. Contains 60 servings per bottle. Great value! About Vitacost.

This is the best value Alpha Lipoic on the market
 May 11, 2008
"Since I've not taken any other Alpha Lipoic w/biotin than NSI's, I have nothing to compare it to. However, I believe it's doing the job, based on what my doc tells me. He cautioned that I buy only pharm. grade supplements, as they are the purest and have the best absorability.
I have researched NSI thoroughly, and believe they turn out some of the highest quality vitamins and supplements, plus having their items tested by independent labs."

Great for Hair and Skin

great for the adrenals & cheap
 July 16, 2007
"I love this easy, tiny, effective supplement. It's great for adrenal support with the higher dose of Biotin and of course the Alpha Lipoic Acid - great combo. The capsule is very small as is the price. Excellent. I also like the NSI Biotin 5g which I took before I switched to this one (to get the added benefit of the Alpha Lipoic Acid)."

Works as expected
 July 2, 2007
"I purchased this in combination with other products to maintain glucose levels throughout the day. One dose in the morning and one in the evening does the job. There are no fluctuations in glucose levels, therefore, no hunger pangs, no desire to snack, no cravings, etc. Excellent product and allergen free. I highly recommend this product along with Chromate and Rhodiola."
