Regular Strength R-Fraction Alpha Lipoic Acid
I find that I do have more energy since starting to take R-Fraction. That 4 o'clock slump during the work day doesn't happen anymore for me. I feel more evenly paced with my energy level.

No stomach issues here
I've switched to the R-fraction form of ALA. I've found I can take a smaller dosage with the same effect as what a used to take of the regular ALA. I feel this helps me get more use out of the other vitamins I take, so I can take less of them too. Don't know for sure though.
Anyway, its a regular part of my vitamin regimen.

A supplement that has decent research
I still use regular ALA but after a bit of research I have decided to supplement it with the R-faction version. Once again if you may not feel anything from taking it but early research shows a variety of possible long term benefits that have been proven through research. What it ultimately may do for you one can not say but it has been shown to help a variety of issues.

Increase in energy, decrease appetite
I have been taking 50mg R- ALA for only a week and it has given me such energy to run and do many things that I never was able to to. In addition to this, it helps me to be less hungry and able to keep my weight down.
It may help with my skin, too, I am not sure, because my skin has been smoother, but I have also started using honey and another face cream about the same time so I can't tell which works to give me smoother skin. I don't plan to stop any of them so I may never know for sure.
This R-ALA is great!!! It's one of the best supplements that I have ever taken with so many benefits: it helps to keep my weight where it should be and at the same time it gives me a lot of energy. Just what I was looking for!
Thank you, Swanson, for making it affordable and for your great service. In fact, sometimes I bought and tried some things that didn't work for me, and I didn't return them, even the unopened bottles. I figured I didn't want to rip you guys off since you have provided us with great prices and service already (-:

I have acid stomach immediately after taking standard ALA. This R-fraction ALA does not cause this trouble. I like it.

Has Good Potential
The R-form of Alpha Lipoic Acid supposedly has some very beneficial qualities that make it worthwhile as a general supplement. I use it for its preventative qualities and any other good it may do.

Best Alpha Lipoic Acid value
I had previously been using one of the lower potencies of Swanson Alpha Lipoic Acid, but wanted to go to a higher level of protection. I tried the 50mg "R" fraction (SWU251) and found that I began feeling noticeably more comfortable; as if I had gained strength. Later on, I decided to try the Ultra High Potency 600mg type, just to see what kind of difference it made. However, I found it a little too strong for my particular body. So I'll be going back to the 50mg "R" fraction as my preferred choice.
