Dear Nelson, thanks for being a source of constant inspiration. My questions is about alpha lipoic acid. I have seen your video on supplementation and you do not mention it. Should I take it? How much? I am currently on kivexa, Prezista and Norvir,I keep undetectable and my cd4 T cells count is above 500. I take super nutrition men's blend, omega 3, coenzyme Q10 and L-carnitine.

By the way, I take the same supplement regimen as you plus Vitamin D (2000 IU per day) and zinc/copper (30/3 mg/day)
