ALA is an organic compond normally found in some foods but best taken as a supplement. It is a co-factor for five enzyme systems in the body and when present, is capable of down-regulating the inflammatory response through its effect on Interlukins. The benefit should be a reduction in the exaggerated response of the mucus membranes with less congestion and smaller risk of the development of pneumonia.

It is poorly absorbed when food is present in the gut so please take 600 mg capsules twice daily at least 30 minutes before food or on an empty stomach.
