About Alpha-Lipoic Acid - 60 Capsules - Thorne

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) has historically been used to mitigate toxic insults to the liver.* ALA is also a nutrient cofactor involved in mitochondrial function, thus supporting energy production in the cells.* Studies indicate that a higher amount of alpha-lipoic acid – 600-1,800 mg daily – is most effective for neurological support and helping to maintain mental sharpness.* Thorne’s Alpha-Lipoic Acid provides 300 mg of ALA per capsule. In addition to being an important antioxidant in both fat-soluble and water-soluble tissues, alpha-lipoic acid also helps recycle other antioxidants, including glutathione, another essential antioxidant for liver detoxification.*

Can Your Products be taken out their capsules to take the product?

Most Thorne products can be taken out of the two-piece, pull-apart capsules. However, there are a few products we don’t recommend taking out of the capsule, which would be indicated in the ‘Warnings’ section on this website for the applicable products.

Does Thorne test its products on animals?

No, and furthermore, Thorne supports the objective of eliminating the laboratory testing of all animals.

As soon before I feel the effects of my supplement?

Every individual is unique and every supplement has a different “mechanism of action” for how it works in the body. Some products can provide a relatively fast result, such as with PharmaGABA for alleviating stress, or Melatonin for promoting sleep. Other supplement products, such as a multi-vitamin/mineral product, are for preventive health and general wellbeing, so an immediate response would not be expected. However, for some products, if you experience an overall sense of wellbeings, such as increased energy or improved mood, and that is the indication of use for which you are taking the product, then you are realizing the intended benefit.

Can pain medication and antibiotics interfere with the absorption of the nutritional supplement? 

Thorne is not aware of anything in the current medical and technical literature that indicates that pain medications and antibiotics can interfere with the absorption of the nutrients in nutritional supplements; however, always consult with your health-care practitioner if you are concerned.
