"As usual, I am always very pleased with Vitacost brand products for your superior ingredients and great value. It is too early to tell whether or not the Alpha Lipoic Acid is making a difference as I have only been taking it for about two weeks. I am also happy to see new products and product lines come on board and Vitacost is the first place I go to for the best prices possible! Your bogo free and 1/2 price sales also is a great incentive to check you out as my first supplier for supplement and women's health products. Thank you for your great service.
