Alpha Lipoic Acid, also known as ALA, is a versatile water and fat soluble metabolic antioxidant. It is a potent free radical scavenger and supports the body throughout its natural detoxification processes. It helps to detoxify the liver, assist other antioxidants during detoxification, and slow the aging process.
ALA is different from vitamins and minerals because our bodies manufacture it throughout our lives. As children, our liver and every one of our cells produce large quantities of ALA. As we grow older, our bodies must maintain a high ALA level to stay healthy, however as we age, we manufacture less and less of it. Ingredient: Alpha-Lipoic Acid.
Natural factors has many great products at an affordable price, and this is one of them. I'm taking alpha lipoic acid for my insulin resistance, because alpha-lipoic acid is used in the body to break down carbohydrates and to make energy for the other organs in the body.
ALA is on my daily supplements list for years. It is a versatile super antioxidant, recycles vitamins C and E, supports healthy glucose metabolism and glutathione production. I always take it together with CoQ10 and Carnitine for antiaging support. The price for 200mg ALA per capsule is very good.
I've been taking this vitamin on a daily basis and it's been great. It's a supplement I really needed to improve my immunity, as it's been struggling a lot lately. I noticed an improvement in my health within the first few days of taking this supplement, and there has not been any noticeable side-effects.
You need alpha-lipoic acid’s antioxidant power. Because it regenerates other antioxidants that were depleted by the ongoing fight with free radicals in your cells. It allows you to use the antioxidants Vitamin C & E, glutathione and CoQ10 already in your body over and over again. In fact, alpha-lipoic acid is so efficient at what it does, it boosts the energy in your cells while reducing inflammation, and getting rid of heavy metals.
Taking Alpha-Lipoic Acid with a meal decreases it bioavailability. So take ALA on an empty stomach (1 hour before eating).
Sometimes when I’m under stress and dont sleep well, there will be a few pimples on the forehead. Whenever that happen, I’ll take a capsule for 3 times a day and it seems to reduce the inflammation and make the red spots go away quicker.
Great product that has made a difference to my overall health especially after having a kidney transplant and a surgery from my broken knee cap. It has accelerated the healing process from my surgeries, I have noticed a daily improvement in my nerve pain.

These are good and are recommended by the best doctors in USA like Perricone. Take 1 a day for weigh loss and reducing inflammation and keeping vitamin E to absorb better. Fights with free radicals too.
