Topic: Alpha Lipoic Acid..

Does anyone take this? Somehow I've never come across this previously but in researching supplements to fight liver disease this seems to be at the top of the list. I worry about pushing too many pills but this sounds very beneficial and I couldn't see where it had any adverse side effects.

Re: Alpha Lipoic Acid..

Yes I do take it in a alternative form called R-Lipoic acid.  It may, according to some internet sources, limit the side effects of some chemotherapeutic agents which would other wise cause hearing loss.  Its also always been recommended for liver support.  Check out the Life Extension Foundation for information.
