Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid -- 300 mg - 120 Softgels

Powerful antioxidant to help protect the body from free radical damage.*. What is alpha lipoic acid?  . Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a coenzyme found in the mitochondria of cells. Its primary function is to serve as a cofactor in the body’s energy production process. It’s also a well-known antioxidant sometimes called “the universal antioxidant” because of its effectiveness in both water-based substances (such as blood) and fatty tissues and membranes.*.  . ALA is produced naturally by the body in small amounts and it’s found in some foods such as liver spinach broccoli and potatoes. It’s difficult however to obtain sufficient quantities from diet.  . How does alpha lipoic acid support health? May promote cardiovascular health by protecting against free radical damage*. Enhances antioxidant activity of vitamins C and E and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)*. May increase levels of glutathione the body’s most important antioxidant*. Why choose Vitacost Alpha Lipoic Acid? Supplies 300 mg of ALA per single-softgel serving. Contains 120 servings per bottle. High quality at a great value! About Vitacost. Vitacost nutritional products are manufactured to high standards of quality efficacy and safety.

It Did what was expected
 February 26, 2014
"I had tried this product in regular pill form and it upset my stomach, so i tried these soft gels. Though a bit more expensive, its still a fair value and no more stomach upset! And no bad smell from the pills.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has tried ALA and it upset there stomach.

Easy on stomach, easy to swallow.

"I previously bought a combo capsule with ALA and Acetyl L Carnitine, but found it irritated my acid reflux. I have no problems with this gel cap and find it easy to swallow as well. Just need to find a gel cap for Acetyl L Carnitine too and I'll have it made."

Major antioxidant in Gel form
 December 14, 2012
"This is my first experience using ALA in a softgel, having taken this
wonderful nutrient for many years in a dry cap; softgels tend to be
better absorbed, and at 300 mg., this is a substantial potency.
Do take with a meal that has fat or oil to enhance absorption, as ALA is fat soluble!
