Just wanted to report that I am having great results with ALA, I have been taking 1200mg a day, along with 1000mg of evening primrose oil for a week and I have not had a single blood glucose result out of my target range when I have been testing, my fast morning BS has also been fantastic!
It could be coincidence, but I have to say there might be something to this combination that Dr Bernstein recommends. May be psychosomatic, but my vision also seems sharper and I feel quite zingy, well worth the $10 a month in my opinion.
I am not taking it for neuropathy, as to date I have managed to avoid it, so I can't comment on that aspect of it.
I for one am sold on it.
Would be interested to hear others experiences of it.
