My whole family takes this. It combats fatigue and helps with energy production. I also take it to help with symptoms of Lyme disease. This is a must have for our family.
Alpha R Lipoic Acid by Seeking Health provides 100 mg of pure R-isomer alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) in each easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsule. The R- isomer of alpha-lipoic acid used in this formula is thought to be more bioavailable due to its higher water-solubility, compared to the commonly used S-isomer.*
Alpha-lipoic acid is a highly versatile nutrient that may help support the body’s healthy antioxidant defense system and is important for energy production and aerobic metabolism. It is an essential cofactor for several enzymes in the Krebs cycle, which is responsible for producing energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Alpha-lipoic acid may also play a role in other metabolic processes, including the breakdown of certain amino acids and alpha-keto acids, folate processing, and healthy nucleic acid synthesis.*
Alpha-lipoic acid is a natural sulfur-containing compound that can be synthesized by the body in healthy individuals. It may assist in the normal cycling of important antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and coenzyme Q10. With prolonged or increased physical stress, the body’s ability to produce enough alpha-lipoic acid to meet its functional needs can be reduced. During these times, it may be more important to support healthy levels by consuming alpha-lipoic acid from food or supplements. Dietary sources include red meat, organ meats such as liver, and yeasts.*

Body is detoxing better
I saw a video Dr Lynch did on his Instagram account where he talked about supporting your mitochondria. What he said made sense, so I purchased the supplements he recommended. This particular supplement was actually recommended a few years back after doing organic acid testing and said I was low, so I gave it a go.
There were three supplements Dr Lynch recommend glutathione, alpha lipoic acid and L-Carnitine. I purchased all three and have noticed an improvement in how my liver is functioning and in my lymphatic system. I constantly get a congested liver and swollen lymph nodes and since I started on these, I have not experienced it. I have taken these for just over two months now and will pause after I finish my current supply to see.
My blood glucose levels have decreased since taking this product. My doctor was impressed with my blood work.
