What is Alpha Lipoic Acid?
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a vitamin-like antioxidant, sometimes referred to as the “universal antioxidant” because it is soluble in both fat and water. ALA is manufactured in the body and is found in some foods, particularly liver and yeast.
Where is ALA found?
The body makes small amounts of alpha lipoic acid. There is only limited knowledge about the food sources of this nutrient. However, foods that contain mitochondria (a specialized component of cells), such as red meats, are believed to provide the most alpha lipoic acid. Supplements are also available.

I am quite happy with the results of this product. Because it is in the form of a tablet, it breaks down slowly in the stomach and I do not get the heartburn or foul smelling urine that I used to get when taking alpha lipoic acid in capsule form. It also has higher amounts of biotin than I have seen in similar products, which means that the acids will stay active longer while they are in your system. I use this in conjunction with acetyl l-carnitine and it has helped me with my weight loss routine.
