- Can I take this ALA with my other diabetes medication?
It is important to note that ALA can lower blood sugar levels so make sure to monitor your glucose levels and ask your physician if you intend to take ALA.
- How long will it take to feel the benefits of these ALA capsules?
Results will vary with each individual. This can depend on what benefits you are looking to receive, and how progressed your symptoms or illness may be.
- What is the difference between R-ALA and S-ALA?
R-ALA is the naturally occurring form, but it has to be stabilized in order to not denature. It can either be stabilized using sodium, or it can be stabilized using the S-form. S-ALA is synthesized naturally in a lab from octanoic acid, which is a fatty acid in coconut oil.
- Does the R-alpha-lipoic acid have to be taken with food? What are the instructions for taking it?
We do recommend that ALA be taken on an empty stomach to get all the benefits ALA offers. With that being said, if it makes your stomach upset please feel free to take it with food!
- Is this formula stabilized?
Both of the ALAs that we offer are of great quality and stabilized! The only difference is how they are stabilized with the Sodium Stabilized version being stabilized with sodium and the R-ALA being stabilized with S-ALA.
- I would like to try this ALA supplement for my back pain and neuropathy. Do you think your product will help?
Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a vitamin-like antioxidant that is important for cellular health and is used by many for chronic ailments, including complications of diabetes. In addition to diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes, 600-1200mg of ALA is often suggested daily for treating type 2 diabetes and improving symptoms such as burning, pain, and numbness in the legs and arms. However, please follow the dosing recommendations given by your doctor. It is important to note that ALA can actually lower your blood sugar so please be aware of any related symptoms.
- Should I take ALA if I am pregnant?
As with any dietary supplement, we recommend you consult with your doctor or healthcare provider before taking this ALA supplement during your pregnancy.
- Is this ALA supplement gluten-free?
Just like all other Dr. Danielle's dietary supplements, this ALA supplement is gluten-free and does not contain yeast, corn, or soy.
This product is the best that I have tried for my peripheral neuropathy. It is gentle on the stomach and has been a major help to my nerve issues. I highly recommend this product. It is sensational and will work if your issue is nerve health.
I decided to try Dr. Danielle's Alpha Lipoic Acid based on reviews attesting to it's ability to relieve pain. A year ago I had an extremely painful injection of cortizone for plantar faciitis in my right foot. The cortizone did alleviate the plantar pain, but within months I was experiencing what felt like cycles of nerve related pain in other areas of the same foot. As I'm currently pursuing the true cause of this pain, I experienced pain relief within the first week of taking Dr. Danielle's Alpha Lipoic Acid--taking 300 mg in the morning and another 300 mg in the evening. According to what I have read, 600 mg a day is considered the maximum dose. I can honestly say that this product has greatly improved my quality of life!
