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. 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.*. 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. May increase levels of glutathione the body’s most important antioxidant.*. Why choose Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid? Contains 60 servings per bottle. Exceptional quality at an extraordinary value.

"I really like the product but am researching what an effective dosage is. I think I read something about 200 mg being recommended. I find that my urine smells pretty acrid almost immediately after taking. I don't know if that's normal or if it's the excess being eliminated."
"I purchased this product for clearer and younger looking skin. I feel it has worked. It gives me a clearer and cleaner complexion. I have reordered this several times. I have read several articles on how Lipoic Acid is great for your skin and I try to order only NSI products. I have read it's also effective in maintaining a healthy weight. I will continue with this product."
"I just started using this today. I have purchased this from another supplier in the past so it is not new to me. I can only give it the 4 stars on some of the catergories since I just started with this particular brand. This is actually a higher dosage than what we had been taking but again as with the other products I have purchased from Vitacost.....much better price!"
"I experienced side effects from taking statin drugs about two years ago. It leaft me with numbness and burning in my feet Then I heard ALA helped with this problem. Shopped around and bought different brands and then came upon your web sight purchased your brand and have been using it every day, can't go a day without it."
