Rated 5 out of 5 by from skin fanatic This is great for the skin. I take this also with Beta Carateen at night. Best taken before bed when you will not be eating.The price is great when they have BIGIF deals, so I usually wait, otherwise the price is average.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does it work? ALA is supposed to be a powerful antioxidant, based on lab testing on animals... I take it on and off as an antioxidant but not sure how it'd help my body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great product I rely on this product every day for myself and my family. I would not want to be without it. I have found the 300mg. works best for me althought it is sometimes difficult to find that strength. You must read up on this great supplement. Doctor Becker talks about its effect on sugar metabolism on his TV program quite frequently and always recommends alpha lipoid acid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and price I stopped taking these for a little while and realized how much it really helps with increasing the other antioxidants I take. You don't realize how much it helps until you quit taking it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent product! This is a most beneficial aid to overall health, implicated in a variety of important heath-related issues. The smaller size (60 capsules) is convenient to take along on trips, and each capsule is very easy to swallow. I have found this product helpful in several areas, especially in a sense of well being and a sense of protection against stress. Highly recommended with no reservations whatsoever. Offered at a most reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a keeper! I love this product! It seems to increase the effect of any other supplement that i take. Taking this with Milk Thistle -Dandelion- Yellow Dock, was the best decision i could have ever made. You honestly will feel "refreshed" in about 30 minutes of taking it. I will be recommending this one to my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I am a post-menopausal woman. I had ordered alpha-lipoic acid, resverotrol and acai from Swanson. I have been taking them for several weeks. I had begun a low-glycemic diet about the same time which I stayed on for a couple of weeks and then relaxed for a couple of weeks. During those off weeks I wasn't exercising like I usually do 3-4 times a week. I started on the diet again on the second day stepped on the scale. I was at my lowest weight for several years as well as down a size into clothes I haven't been able to wear, namely from a XL to a L. The only explanation I can give are these supplements! Needless to say I have put in another order and will continue on this regimen! I am thrilled!
