Alpha-Lipoic Acid is found in small amounts in almost all foods, but slightly more so in spinach, broccoli, and yeast. ALA is a natural antioxidant that effectively neutralizes free radicals, and it appears to have a beneficial effect for those with diabetes, increasing insulin sensitivity.
ALA has been shown to be effective at treating diabetic neuropathy, liver disease, and is a chelating agent for heavy metal toxicity. ALA has also been used experimentally and/or clinically with encouraging results in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, the prevention or slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease and other causes of cognitive dysfunction, in treating migraines, in treating Parkinson’s Disease, and for multiple sclerosis. If you have diabetes or are pregnant or lactating, please consult your doctor before taking ALAmax CR™. Consult your doctor before use if you are allergic to alpha lipoic acid or other sulfur-containing compounds. Dosing: Take 1 tablet 30 minutes before breakfast and 1 tablet 30 minutes before dinner or as directed by your doctor. Supplement Facts
