Rated 5 out of 5 by Cynthia1 One of my Favorites!
This is one of my Favorite products because it's MY belief that it makes many of the other things I take to be more potent - that is, I believe that my body uses the other things more effectively. I choose the 300 mg so that I take 1 in AM with morning vits/mins/herbs, and I take 1 in PM with evening vitgs/mins/herbs. I prefer that, rather than taking 1 600 mg capsule at 1 point in the day.

There are many broken capsules. When you tilt the bottle to get a capsule, lot of white powder spills in the hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4EVERyoung Swanson's Alpha Lipoic Acid
GREAT supplement, antioxidant and detox! I take it with L-Glutathione (also available here at Swanson), for a one-two Detox punch. It can be pricey, but.... just wait for the sale or when it's on BOGO and stock up!

I'm not sure what to expect from this that would be noticeable, hence the lower effectiveness rating. Otherwise, a good deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frank55 good for the brain
I don't think there's any way to measure what Alpha Lipoic Acid is doing, if so I'd like to know. My rating is based on trust having read literature over many years and enough confidence in Swanson. Given that it's not too expensive, has little chance of negative side-effects, and due to the science, I put it high on the list of supplements to take regularly. Taking it with acetyl-l-carnitine does seem to give a mental boost for me.

I take ALA as one of 3 supplements to support my liver. It is not advertised as something that affects energy, but it did mine; the extra energy was a big surprise.

Since there is no control group, it is difficult to definitively evaluate a product but it does appear tlo be supporting other supplements as it is intended to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigBird1017 Excellent Antioxident
I have used ALA and L-Carnitine together for over two years, and have felt noticeably better. After researching these two supplements, I learned they reportedly work synergistically to boost the antioxident levels in your system, may improve cardiovascular health, and may improve memory. I take 300 mg of ALA and 500 mg of L-Carnitine twice daily, and can certainly feel an improvement. You may need to take the ALA with food, since the acidity may cause indigestion if taken on an empty stomach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cyrusromeo great product great price
My specialist recommended this supplement and once I found it at swanson was very impressed with both the quality and the price, It's one my daily supps and I don't think I could find it anywhere else at this rate. ALA is good for a number of bodily functions and instead of suggesting why one would take it, will just say it's good quality if you decide to supplement with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikky Amazing product
Can't imagine life without Alpha Lipoic Acid. My family uses this as did I before I found the timed release version which I prefer. We think of it as our anti-ageing pill. It is considered an anti-oxidant and free-radical scavenger. It neutralizes potentially harmfull substances and converts glucose into energy. It has so many benefits that I never want to be without it.

The product is priced very good; however, in the past two bottles I purchased, I always have one or two capsols that are left open or half filled.
