No need to suspect how much
Rocky36 is correct. On all counts.
The Oregon State Study has been mentioned on this forum several times. Gosh, too bad we don’t have a “sticky” folder called ‘Alpha Lipoic Acid,’ then all these threads could be combined.
Here’s the link to the study: [url]http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00962429?term=oregon+state+and+alpha+lipoic+acid&rank=6[/url]
Here’s the answer to your question about the study amounts:
“Drug: lipoic acid Subjects will be started on a single daily dose of 600 mg of alpha lipoic acid or placebo for the first 4 weeks and then increased to 1200 mg for the remainder of the study.” (Study appears to be 16 weeks)
As pointed out somewhere, you have a chance of being given placebo if you participate in the study.
I suppose the advantages, if any, are the free evaluation and motor testing. On the other hand you will pay your own transportation and lodging fees. Oregon is a great place to visit (a great place to live too) . I used to live in Roseburg.
