Not sure Yet Read good reviews. Still checking out what it can do for me and the husband. Hard to tell when you take so many other things. I will continue to take for now. January 26, 2014
Alpha Lipoic Acid Appreciated the quick service and fast delivery of a good quality product. December 29, 2013
ala good product for youre eyes and blood December 9, 2013
Exothermic This high dose of ALA got hot in my stomach. It got so warm it scared me, and I drank a lot of cold water with it to try to offset it. I don't think it did any harm, but it was very uncomfortable. I tried it a second time to be sure it wasn't another supplement causing this effect. I had to return this. I would recommend being certain of the dose you want before ordering. December 3, 2013
Good deal Good product,now I moved up to r-fraction alpha L and like it even better November 29, 2013
as advertised; met my expectations After reviewing studies on ALA and NAC, I tried various products. I found that the Swanson brand was more effective than competing brands at the same claimed dosage. I am very happy with the quality and consistency. November 14, 2013
Fast Service / Great Price First of all, the product arrived very promptly. After searching around the internet, I found that Swanson offered a very reasonable price. I am a long-time customer and will continue to "shop Swanson first" for all my supplement needs. August 29, 2013
DOUBLE UP ON THE REAL DEAL I first started using Alpha Lipoic Acid when Swanson had their 300 mg. capsules on BOGO. My research told me that I should use 600 mg. daily, but the BOGO on the 300 mg. potency was too good to pass up. . . . And besides, it was no big deal to take 2 at a time. On a regular basis, I now buy this ALA 600 mg. potency. I take one capsule with 2 of Swanson's Acetyl L-Carnitine 500 mg. capsules every morning, because the combination of these two super-star nutritional factors are used by the body's MITOCHONDRIA in every single cell to PRODUCE THE ENERGY necessary for that cell to work. In addition, Alpha Lipoic Acid is a Super-Star Antioxidant in its own right. I feel that I am hitting a double here. Do not be alarmed when, after you take your Alpha Lipoic Acid, your urine has an unusual odor. This is just a natural phenomenon like when you eat asparagus. Just be sure to drink plenty of healthful fluids daily, at least 8 glasses or cups are pretty universally recommended of PURE water, green tea, natural juice without sugar or high fructose corn syrup, even black coffee is okay. . . . no sodas, regular or diet, count as healthful hydrating. There are other pure and healthful liquids that count as positive hydration, like coconut water and natural mineral water like San Pellegrino, so be sure to not only provide all the vital fluid your body needs on a daily basis, but also flush out your kidneys thoroughly every day. After a while, most people find that they don't notice an unusual odor to their urine caused by Alpha Lipoic Acid if they are hydrating sufficiently and properly. I doubly recommend this fantastic 600 mg. Alpha Lipoic Acid capsule from Swanson. Also, note that from other sources, other brands of ALA cost around double (or more) what Swanson charges for this, THE REAL DEAL. May 27, 2013
More mg per $ I use this product daily. I like the size of the capsule. May 25, 2013
Great Product At a doctor's recommendation, I have been using ALA for 4 years or more. It was really hard to find the 600 mg strength without going to a health food store. I even ordered this product on line through other companies, but had trouble getting the 600 mg strength, which was so expensive even on line. Then I discovered Swanson Vitamins and was amazed at the prices and products available. I immediately started ordering my ALA from Swanson and haven't looked back once. April 14, 2013
Value Good to find this--alpha-lipoic acid--at the 600mg dosage, vs. the 300, and at a great price. April 14, 2013
Good stuff Best price I can find and good quality. April 8, 2013
This is a great product, I have been using this product for several years and an convinced it has protected my overall health. March 9, 2013
Weight loss I bought this product because I heard that it might be useful for weight loss. I haven't been taking it long enough to notice any results, but will continue to purchase and use it. March 6, 2013
Good product, Bad price I'm taking 1800 mg of Swanson Ultra Alpha Lipoic Acid per day and it dramatically changed my life for better. Unfortunately during the last year Swanson constantly rising the product's price and now almost doubled it. I will not be able to buy it next time. February 21, 2013
Very good This is a wonderful product. works very well and is a good value. Will absolutely reorder. February 16, 2013
Harsh on your stomach. I gave up on this one. Too harsh on the stomach. You get a heartburn all day. Forget it... February 4, 2013
Not good for hypothyroid!!! I felt sick to my stomach, metallic smelling urine, and didn't feel good in general. I looked into it because the reviews are so good. I found out why I had a bad experience taking ALA. I have hypothyroidism and ALA affects your thyroid. I stopped taking it and immediately felt normal again. December 29, 2012
Works great for me! A friend told me he took it so I tried it and it has worked great. December 22, 2012
Effective I take this daily for a curious matter that I have not read about in any other reviews. Without it, I had a musty body odor (not related to hygiene). With ALA, completely gone! Don't understand it but it works. November 14, 2012
Swanson's ALA is a great buy I've used several types of ALA and can' beat Swanson's Ultra ALA for the quality and price. October 19, 2012
love it Iam on my second bottle of this. I take it with my carbohydrates meals which is usually in the morning with my bran cereal and oatmeal. I would feel like using the bathroom some minutes after. It makes you urinate until its out of your system. Expect a funny smelling urine, just so you know and not go running to the doctor wondering why your urine stinks,its the ALA. I love it and will continue to take it. September 22, 2012
Heartburn Experienced heartburn numerous times while taking this pill. September 17, 2012
I feel good!! Like James Brown says in his song " I feel Good" I have been taking this for 3 months and I really feel a difference in my well being. My energy level has increased and I am sleeping better. Adding this to my diet is the only new thing I have done, so this had to have something to do with it. July 31, 2012
Good product, This strength of 600mg has helped me to loose weight the lower 300mg did not seem to do much for me so I bought this to try it and it has helped. July 16, 2012
