Powerful antioxidant to help protect the body from free radical damage.*. What is alpha lipoic acid? 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.

How does alpha lipoic acid support health? May promote cardiovascular health by protecting against free radical damage.*. Enhances the antioxidant activity of vitamins C and E and coenzyme Q10.

"I keep this in stock and a part of my daily vitamin regimen. At the price here on Vitacost.com it's easy to do. I even buy one for my mother when I restock. I have to say I feel better when I take and and my skin is much softer. I went without it for a brief moment awhile back until I noticed a difference in my skin. I love this product especially at this low price."
"I take this product on empty stomach for best utilization--and really notice a difference ! I also take it with B-2 and acetyl l-carnitine. a great value-and this brand has good absorption and a good price.."
"This product is unique in that it free other antioxidants to continue doing their thing. I use this with fish oil because absorption is necessary. Natural Vitamin E has been found useful in the absorption of Alpha Lipoic Acid. When your body has a good balance of Natural Vitamins diffused throughout your blood you utilize all of the best you can get in supplements."
"This capsule almost seems too small to pack the 100 mg of ALA [Alpha Lipoic Acid] into it, but it does. It may be little, but it provides me with BIG Benefits---I feel better & healthier, with less daily aches & pains, & I have more energy. I recommend this low cost / high benefit supplement!"
"My friends and I found out about this much needed anti-oxidant and looked for alternatives. NSI sounded good because it was natural and now we're really glad that we chose this brand. I live in the Philippines so we got together and combined resources to purchase and fortunately, time, money & effort hasn't been wasted at all.
NSI ALA makes one looks fresh even after a few hours (or none) of sleep, and fair or not gives one a rosy glow."
"I added alpha lipoic acid to my self-care regimen when I moved to CA's central valley. A lot of chemicals in the air from all the agriculture. I wanted to support my liver and my body with all the pollution in the air, too. I began taking ALA to help achieve this objective. Even though I no longer live there, I will continue taking it for its anti-oxidant benefits and every liver can always use a good friend."
