- Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant that is both fat and water soluble. It is a well known free radical scavenger that is commonly referred to as the universal antioxidant. -

Alpha lipoic acid is a naturally occurring compound necessary for the conversion of glucose into ATP (chemical energy). In addition to its role in food metabolism and energy, LA supports the body’s natural defence against oxidative stress. A potent antioxidant in its own right, it also “recycles” other antioxidants such as vitamins E and C, Co-Q10 and glutathione, so they can continue to protect against free radical damage. LA has a unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, therefore helping normalise oxidative stress in the brain. LA has been approved in Germany for use by GPs in support of patients with diabetic neuropathy.

Usage: May support the body’s natural ability to resist oxidative stress and maintain tissue health especially in relation to conditions associated to improper blood glucose management, nerve damage, vascular, eye, neurological and immune function. Also highly recommended for people regularly exposed to oxidative stressors, chemicals or toxins and sports people.


Take 1-2 capsules daily, with or without food.
If extra support for healthy tissue healing is required up to 5-7 capsules daily for three weeks can be taken, then reduce to recommended dose.


Safety in pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established. People using medications for blood glucose control (e.g insulin) should closely monitor their blood glucose levels. People using thyroid medication should consult a health care professional before taking LA. Protein & B vitamin supplementation is recommended with long term use.

Alpha lipoic acid (50:50 R,S) 250mg
100% Vegetarian.

Good value product, and Radiance appears to be a reasonable brand. We use this product as a chelator (so please be careful if you have heavy metal toxicity issues) and to prevent asthma. This can be a difficult supplement to use, but the product certainly works.

Radiance has a very good reputation. I am using this product alongside VitC as it works well with it for a blood disorder=liver. So far so good. Will continue its use for at least 6months, research shows it has good results for my needs.

I've been on this product for nearly 5 months, during that time my weight has increased. No beneficial effects have been noticed during that time. Far too expensive for what you get.

I suffer from peripheral neuropathy... Review by
  • star

I suffer from peripheral neuropathy (unknown cause) doctors were unable to help my burning feet and numbness in feet and lower legs. I began taking Alpha Protect Lipoic Acid four years ago and within a month the numbness slowly receded and the burning became manageable. I take two capsules a day and life is much better with it. I would advise anyone to try it at least.
