Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken capsules 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 from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpha Lipoic Acid 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 from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better energy 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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 from Alpha Lipoic Acid I was deficient in this area and quickly recovered from the deficiency by means of this product.
