GoodIt hasn’t been a long time since I’ve been using it, but I’ve performed a research about this supplement and it turned out to be very beneficial as it reduce inflammation and skin aging, promote healthy nerve function, lower heart disease risk factors, and slow the progression of memory loss disorders. And the active moiety is the R- form which is great. Just make sure you if you suffer from any of the following , avoid taking it : Liver disease. Consumption of large amounts of alcohol. Diabetic (ALA is known to lower blood's sugar) A thyroid disorder, or. A thiamine deficiency. ALSO Take care that it interacts with some medications/supplements such as : devil's claw, fenugreek, garlic, guar gum, horse chestnut, Panax ginseng, psyllium, and Siberian ginseng, Aspirin Low Strength (aspirin) I hope that was helpful
I have been taking 600 mg R/S ALA now for two months along with a handful of other supplements, I must say I feel 1000% better overall but the numbness in my legs is much improved, but there are still problems, I am using R Alpha Lipoic Acid which is 235 mg. Some recommend 600 mg up to 1200g or more for a restorative effect. Is the R ALA equivalent to 600 mg available commercially? I don't see it on your menu. Is the improved bio availability that great that two x 240 is equal to 600 mg?
To detoxify your body is arguably the most important thing to do if you want to regain your health. In this context glutathione plays a very important role. Glutathione is not only a master antioxidant, but also considered to be a master detoxifier. And this is were Alpha-Lipoic Acid comes into play as it triggers the body to produce glutathione. Everyone should know about how the liver detoxifies. For, if you stimulate phase 1 while disregarding phase 2 detoxification it can potentially have a very detrimental effect on both your physical and mental health. Also remember phase 3 detoxification. Please check out Christopher Shade (PhD) or/and Joseph Pizzorno before you start detoxing. This supplement has been crucial for me in the process of regaining my health. This product works.
I've taken Alpha-Lipoic Acid for years, but recently decided to start taking R-Lipoic Acid. I'm on my second bottle of Life Extension R-Lipoic Acid and am happy with this supplement. From my research, it's a good antioxidant that does several things, including lowers blood sugar levels, helps with energy, kidney function, and neuropathy.
This product has been awesome for me. I had low back pain for a long time; I ended up having back surgery. Following that, I was taking painkillers as needed. Since I started to receive Lipoic acid with curcumin, I managed to stop all my painkiller pills, and I am happy to continue taking just supplements. It helped me as well with some knee pain twice; again, I managed to stop any regular painkillers.
It’s working great for my father’s diabetes, it used to be between 200 to 400 but thanks god this product brought it down between 90 to 250. Also we needed to lower the insulin shot because it dropped down to 60 a few times. Please people be CAUTION when taking this if you’re diabetic you need to monitor your diabetes levels until you stop taking insulin if god wells it.
This is a very strong antioxidant and it’s super good for fighting free radicals. I bought this product to help my body get rid of mercury and other heavy metals and support its vitality. I bought this one since R lipoid acid is absorbed better by the body than the other “non R” alpha lipoid acid. It has a high content of 240 mg which is super great. Easy to swallow, average sized capsules, not too large. It has no funny flavor to it. I take 1, sometimes 2 per day, with Vitamin C or Zeolite. I was recommended to purchase it for heavy metal detox by the Chelation Protocol. Its price is a bit expensive for only 60 capsules but you get 240 mg for each of them and it’s cheaper on iHerb than in drugstores where I live. So it’s kind of fair. I like their blue packaging, it’s easy to open. Bottom line, it’s very recommended for metal detox and it has many health benefits. Please do not raise the price!
I am aged 31 and my husband is aged 29. We read about Super R-Lipoic Acid being helpful for fertility, and as we head into IVF, we were willing to try anything! The ingredients in this product are high quality, size is small and it has a range of benefits. I imagine that everybody has their own reasons for taking this product, and we will continue to do so too.
A powerhouse antioxidant, this product delivers all it promises and more. After a month of regular use have noticed marked improvements in mobility, mental acuity, the texture of my skin is much softer and firmer and I have an abundance of energy than I haven't had in a long time. Definitely a keeper!

Plus the packaging and sizes were perfect. over all good quality. i love the smell and the looks of it. im looking forward to purchasing another one!
