"Have decided to use Alpha Lipoic Acid after reading in various articles its benefits. But only when I started to use this specific product by Vitacost I could see how its unbelievable effect on my personal looks (and I wasn't the only one who noticed it, my girl friends started asking me, 'what did you do', lol). Great product and a great price - and a great outcome: works great for me!"
"I have been taking alpha lipoic acid for over a year now and always found it helpful. When I started taking this current bottle, I questioned if there was really Alpha Lipoic in the capsules, as the same results were just not there."
"I initially received this item after my first order ran out. When I opened the bottle, it had a strange burnt smell. I was taking it for a few weeks but the scent was very disturbing to the point that I called up to inquire. I was sent a replacement and guess what, same problem??? The first batch no problem. The last 2, strange burnt odors??? If it was not so potent it wouldn't matter, but I really dispise the smell so much that I will probably stop taking it altogether."
