Rewarded Review

My doctor recommended that I take Alpha-Lipoic Acid to help with pain in my hands and feet from diabetic neuropathy. It is an antioxidant that can help to regenerate other antioxidants and help the body to metabolize glucose. Doctor's Best Alpha-Lipoic Acid is high-puality and has not animal ingredients (vegan), no GMO and it's soy and gluten free. I have been feeling so much better since taking it so I feel I can highly recommend it.

Alpha lipoic acid is also known as ALA, thioctic acid or simply as lipoic acid. It is a powerful antioxidant that also acts as a cofactor of mitochondrial reactions in which glucose is converted into energy as during the Krebs cycle and during the catabolism of alpha keto acids or amino acids. Part of the consumption of alpha lipoic acid can be ingested through food and a certain amount can be synthesized by the body itself. Unlike other antioxidants, alpha lipoic acid has the ability to act both in fatty and aqueous surroundings. This feature gives you a great advantage over other antioxidants. In addition to being an antioxidant in itself, lipoic acid has side antioxidant effects: Alpha lipoic acid increases levels of endogenous antioxidants such as glutathione and coenzyme Q10. Like the original form, the reduced form of alpha lipoic acid, called dehydrolipoic acid (DHLA), also has antioxidant power and is able to regenerate the vitamin C and vitamin E that have been oxidized. For this reason, lipoic acid alpha is considered the antioxidant of the antioxidants or universal antioxidant. In addition, ALA reduces the production of cytokines and proinflammatory factors. If you liked my review or learned something new, please give it a liked 👍. Thank you iHerb for being part of our health. 👍

I have taken versions of ALA for at least 10 years now such as R-ALA etc. But mostly from this brand. Taken R-ALA for a few years before I switched back to this because there are more research done on ALA in compared to the more stabilized versions, R-ALA. As a potent oil and water soluble anti-oxidant, I believe it helps with degeneration. I am 40 and people have complemented that I look younger, my eyesight is still almost perfect. It also helps that it supports glucose metabolism as I eat rice or some form of carbohydrate many times a week, due to my culture. So I think it is this is an important supplement for me, which can benefit all as well.

ALA has many benefits, probably the most well known are related with metabolism, has it can help people with metabolic syndrome. In my case I use it for its antioxidant properties as part of my antiaging supplements. This supplement provides 300mg, which is enough for some people. Depending on your objectives, you might want to try a stronger dose (600mg).

Works like any other ALA. Only take it if you've done a thorough research about ALA, and you know that our body turns it into a heavy metal chelator as well as you learned about low, frequent dose chelation. It took me 5.5 yrs to work my way up to 300 mg, when I first took a 300 mg capsule ALA 6 yrs ago, I got really sick for a whole week, so I learned the hard way. Avoid if pregnant or breast feeding.

I take Alpha Lipoic Acid as part of my regiment to maintain my blood sugar within normal levels. As a diabetic, this forms part of my daily nutritional support.
