Rated 1 out of 5 by elina Alpha Lipoic Acid 100 mg Does not work
I used to take Alpha Lipoic Acid 100 mg supplement from a different store. There are certain indicators (urine) that supposed to happen while this supplement is taken. Did not happen with Swanson's version. I took exactly the same dose/potency (based on the label) as before.
Makes me think about other supplements I got from Swanson.

I take ALA as a generally useful anti-oxidant, and for skin health. I appreciate being able to purchase it in a moderate dose, at a good price, from a source I trust.

I purchased this for Stomach acids and found it caused me more harm than good. It gave me heart burn and I tried it several times but had to give up on it. Thanks but not this time.

I like this strength of Alpha Lipoic Acid as I can take it in smaller doses throughout the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by algold123456 be careful lipoic acid can irritate mouth
Don't chew capsule. Don't hold it in mouth long
enough for the gelatine capsule to dissolve.
Rather swallow it with a good gulp of water.

I tried this product because the Swanson Ultra ALA was on back order and I didn't want to wait. This product seems to be the same but just diluted with more excipients. I prefer the Swanson Ultra 300mg.

You must remember ALA is not absorbed very good by the body. About 30% of it gets absorbed so up your dose. You can get the R version which is more expensive but also better absorbed.

Works for me that alpha lipoic acid helps to keep my immune system up and is a complement to other vitamins.

The price per capsule is the lowest anywhere. It works better than the tablets I used before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Thea An essential supplement
I have regularly been taking 100mg daily of Alpha Lipoic acid for many years, and during this time, I have tried many brands of this supplement. Swanson Premium Alpha Lipoic Acid is an acceptable substitute to the higher-priced name brand varieties. However, I have noticed that the potency of this brand is not as effective as some other commercial products. Still, it is, on the whole, a good value for this essential nutrient.

I’ve been taking Swanson’s Alpha-lipoic acid with Acetyl-L-carnitine for a couple of years, because I read in a science magazine that clinical trails demonstrated that the combination seems to really improve memory in aging rats. A-lipoic acid may be a good way to fight cognitive decline in the aging. I take them both in middle of the day on an empty stomach. I have good recall and concentration, and want to continue to have them as I age!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reikimon ALA is the Universal Antioxidant
We love to take this supplement. It helps to detoxify the body. It is able to detoxify substances in the body that are water-soluble or fat-soluble. In doiing so, it helps protect the liver from becoming overloaded with toxins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skip24 Most protective supplement!
Swanson's "Alpha Lipoic Acid" 100 mg. which I take 3 times daily has kept my heart strong and together with "CO-Q10" and "L-Carnitine" I have found this combination to be the best formula for more energy, and antioxidant activity available anywhere.
