    I am a diabetic, and take ala for neouropathy. It works wonders for diabetics to kill the pain of neourapathy. I havent lost 1 extra hair in the 3 years i have taken this medicine. I started off with 600mg twice a day for the first 90 days, and then switched to 100mg in the am, and 200 mg in the noon hour, and 200mg in the evening. Hair loss has not occured, nor ANY SIDE EFFECTS AT ALL!.I don’t know about healthy folks, but diabetics need this medicine at some time in their life.

    Well packaged, clean and effective. My only concern is that the ALA does cause a similar sensation as acid reflux if it is exposed to the esophagus, and these capsules need to be thoroughly washed down, or followed with food.

    This brand and product are high quality and a good value. But, taking ALA gave me terrible heartburn which I have never had before in my life. No matter whether I took it on an empty stomach or with food, I would end up with heartburn for hours. Tums would barely make a dent it was so bad. So, if you have any concerns with heartburn I wouldn’t take ALA unless you need to.
