Customer Ratings & Reviews

Alpha Lipoic Acid is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpha Lipoic Acid Alpha Lipoic Acid was recommended to me by my physician. I do not want "junk" in my supplements and I trust Swanson products to be clean and more natural products. I have been very pleased with this prpoduct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I've been using alpha lipoic acid for years, and there's extensive research in books and on-line about it's health benefits. The Swanson brand provides 600 mg. of ala per capsule without unnecessary additives and fillers, and is reasonably priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Approval Dosage & price are unbeatable only surpassed by quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I switched to 300 mg twice per day. This IS a great product. HOWEVER, for me, it makes more sense to get it in the 300 mg capsule and take one in the morning and one in the evening. I think that that gives me better coverage. It is a tiny bit more expensive this way, but I am very pleased to have made the change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from satisfied customer I have been ordering this product for over a year. I cannot find a similar product locally for a similar price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from balancing Alpha lipoic acid helps the regenerate cells and is a must have
Date published: 2015-04-03
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why the 'S' isomer? If only they would remove the S-Isomer and leave only the R-Isomer. At this price it would be sales dynamite. In a smaller capsule with little or no filler I could sell this stuff by the truck load.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Powdery mess I finally gave up buying this product from Swanson, since the capsules are always covered with the product, as if one had come apart in the bottle. Even though I was careful to wipe off the powder before ingesting the capsule I coughed each time I had one. After several bottles I finally bought some on another site, and am so glad I did. I cannot fathom why this one product of Swanson's is of such poor quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from R-frction From all that I have read on Alpha Lipoic Acid, the Right-Fraction is the only form of this acid that is of any value to the human body. Therefore, I feel that I have wasted my money, time and potential health benefits by taking the wrong form of this product.
Date published: 2014-12-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good antioxidant I take this antioxidant as part of my anti-aging regime and have had very good results. It's not the fountain of youth, but I've found it helpful in giving me an overall healthy & vital look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good combo Excellent for combining with NAC. Has beneficial effects that you'll have to look up yourself. Pricing is nice when on a sale.
Date published: 2014-09-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for Me 600mg gave me headaches compared to 300mg of Triple Strength R-Fraction Lipoic Acid, so I am switching back. I just wish they didn't use rice filler in the latter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure Yet Read good reviews. Still checking out what it can do for me and the husband. Hard to tell when you take so many other things. I will continue to take for now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Exothermic This high dose of ALA got hot in my stomach. It got so warm it scared me, and I drank a lot of cold water with it to try to offset it. I don't think it did any harm, but it was very uncomfortable. I tried it a second time to be sure it wasn't another supplement causing this effect. I had to return this. I would recommend being certain of the dose you want before ordering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good deal Good product,now I moved up to r-fraction alpha L and like it even better
Date published: 2013-11-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from as advertised; met my expectations After reviewing studies on ALA and NAC, I tried various products. I found that the Swanson brand was more effective than competing brands at the same claimed dosage. I am very happy with the quality and consistency.
Date published: 2013-11-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Service / Great Price First of all, the product arrived very promptly. After searching around the internet, I found that Swanson offered a very reasonable price. I am a long-time customer and will continue to "shop Swanson first" for all my supplement needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOUBLE UP ON THE REAL DEAL I first started using Alpha Lipoic Acid when Swanson had their 300 mg. capsules on BOGO. My research told me that I should use 600 mg. daily, but the BOGO on the 300 mg. potency was too good to pass up. . . . And besides, it was no big deal to take 2 at a time. On a regular basis, I now buy this ALA 600 mg. potency. I take one capsule with 2 of Swanson's Acetyl L-Carnitine 500 mg. capsules every morning, because the combination of these two super-star nutritional factors are used by the body's MITOCHONDRIA in every single cell to PRODUCE THE ENERGY necessary for that cell to work. In addition, Alpha Lipoic Acid is a Super-Star Antioxidant in its own right. I feel that I am hitting a double here. Do not be alarmed when, after you take your Alpha Lipoic Acid, your urine has an unusual odor. This is just a natural phenomenon like when you eat asparagus. Just be sure to drink plenty of healthful fluids daily, at least 8 glasses or cups are pretty universally recommended of PURE water, green tea, natural juice without sugar or high fructose corn syrup, even black coffee is okay. . . . no sodas, regular or diet, count as healthful hydrating. There are other pure and healthful liquids that count as positive hydration, like coconut water and natural mineral water like San Pellegrino, so be sure to not only provide all the vital fluid your body needs on a daily basis, but also flush out your kidneys thoroughly every day. After a while, most people find that they don't notice an unusual odor to their urine caused by Alpha Lipoic Acid if they are hydrating sufficiently and properly. I doubly recommend this fantastic 600 mg. Alpha Lipoic Acid capsule from Swanson. Also, note that from other sources, other brands of ALA cost around double (or more) what Swanson charges for this, THE REAL DEAL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More mg per $ I use this product daily. I like the size of the capsule.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product At a doctor's recommendation, I have been using ALA for 4 years or more. It was really hard to find the 600 mg strength without going to a health food store. I even ordered this product on line through other companies, but had trouble getting the 600 mg strength, which was so expensive even on line. Then I discovered Swanson Vitamins and was amazed at the prices and products available. I immediately started ordering my ALA from Swanson and haven't looked back once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value Good to find this--alpha-lipoic acid--at the 600mg dosage, vs. the 300, and at a great price.
