Thing is, it might work. Or wait for the Oregon study.

Hi Jessicah,

If you follow some of those links under the gov’t alternative medicine website, as I hope some people will do, you’ll find that ALA (ACCORDING TO THEM, NOT ME) is a part of “every cell in our body.”

Ya, know, each person has to decide for themselves. I have read about ALA for a few years. I bet I first took it in the early 2000’s. I recall ‘they’ said it was under consideration to be put in the vitamin category.

You are correct, It helps heart disease, it helps diabetic neuropathy. Ah, heck, read this from the Linus Pauling Institute.


He is/was a somewhat famous guy. For example, Wikipedia says, among other things “…He was one of the most influential chemists in history and ranks among the most important scientists in any field of the 20th century…”

Well, anyway, it’s a lot to read. Good luck whatever you decide.
