Excessive oxidative stress is often experienced by people looking to improve their nerve health. In this regard, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) has been found effective to mitigate oxidative stress and nerve discomfort. ALA is a naturally occurring compound produced by the body which play an active role at the cellular level regulating energy production. It is both water and fat soluble which allows it to function in almost any part of the body as potent antioxidant supporting the regeneration of other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and glutathione. If the body does not produce the necessary amount, it is not able to produce all the benefits one needs. Dietary supplementation of BETTERAL® has been shown to increase ALA body levels quickly contributing to the health of peripheral nerves. It is manufactured synthetically through a proprietary process developed to stabilize the active molecule while removing all the organic solvents. BETTERAL® has 14+ year of scientific research behind showing its safety and efficacy in alleviating occasional nerve aches and discomfort in the hands, neck and back.

Alpha Lipoic Acid NLT 99.5% (purity by HPLC, Area normalization)
Alpha Lipoic Acid NLT 98.5% (assay by HPLC)

Fine and granular powder

Recommended daily dosage:
300-600 mg before meals

Tablets, capsules, softgels

*Ethanol residue NMT 2000 ppm


Due to its nature, ALA is unstable under heat. Our manufacturing process ensures to keep the polymer content very low assuring stability over time as well as optimal absorption. Other than ethanol, BETTERAL® is free from extraction solvents.


  • Healthy nerve function
  • Mitochondrial health
  • Energy & nervous system support
  • Healthy inflammatory response
  • Antioxidant

Clinical evidence

Bioavailability of BETTERAL® was tested in healthy subjects both in tablet and softgel formulation (Mignini et al. 2012).

BETTERAL® has been researched in multiple human clinical trials for its anti-oxidant and nerve protective effects. Our clinical published data show that BETTERAL®, beyond its bioavailability, delivers the health benefits that modern consumers demand.
