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.

"This is a great addition to your diet along with Acetyl L Carnitine if you want to have a great memory. I started taking these two together 8 years ago and I noticed an improvement in my memory within 2 months. I am so happy that I continue to have a great memory because of these products, and others."
"After reading the Four Hour body, I added this product as part of the PAGG discussed in the book. My starting weight in April was 220 pounds and today I weighed in at 188. All I can say is fantastic!"
"FDA regulations keep this country in bad shape!!! ALA is the most important adjunct to good health because it is not present in any food in needed amounts. It is what we made in every body cell as little kids and is what kept us young and gave us all the energy back then! I am 83 this week and a member of the ACS and NY Acad. of Sc. No prescriptions and in great health!"
