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.
Product was fresh, well-packaged, and easy to take. Unlike some vitamins I've taken that either didn't work or made me sick to my stomach, NOW puts out a great product. I have no idea if these help with diabetic nerve pain as stated in one of the books on self-care for diabetics because it probably will take months to see if there is any improvement in my left foot. Years before my type 2 diagnosis, my right foot was damaged in an accident and I've had residual nerve pain and numbness it in since that time. These capsules seem to have alleviated some of the nerve pain I've experienced in that foot.
my neurologist, who is also director of the university of pittsburgh medical center's headache center, recommended that i take this daily, and it definitely reduces the frequency and severity of my migraines.
I was suffering from carpal tunnel. My doctor suggested that Alpha Lipoic might help relieve some of the symptoms. I have been using NOW brand for nearly two years now. I am very happy with the results I have experienced and have recommended this to several family members..I am not a doctor and I am not giving medical advice :) I made several changes along with taking Alpha Lipoic acid.
These vcaps have no unpleasant smells and worked for me
