Has your doctor recommended you take alpha lipoic acid? Are you familiar with its benefits and uses?
I was only recommended vit d and biotin. I bought lipoic acid and maybe thinking of taking. Your thoughts?
I take it because of my own research, my neurologist doesn't know I'm taking it, not hiding it but don't care to share. I also read the reviews of customers on amazon before purchasing it. It honestly sounds like the miracle pill but I don't notice anything worse or better (I don't notice anything most of the time at all because I'm always busy, have few minutes to think even). Now that I actually think about it, I don't have as many problems emotionally while I take my vitamins. Thanks for reminding me to take them, I'll start again religiously tomorrow! My neurologist only suggested vitamin D3, B complex, and B6 for some time only. I suggest these research studies/clinical trials on the effect of Alpha Lipoic Acid on MS:
also this one "Effect of lipoic acid consumption on oxidative stress among multiple sclerosis patients: A randomized controlled clinical trial."
