Alpha Lipoic Acid, Smell and Memory

I have just ordered Alpha lipoic acid as per my doctor's suggestions to improve my sense of smell. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) has a number of interesting properties besides improving the sense of smell. ALA also improves memory by helping nerve regeneration among other things. It would be nice to hit two birds with one stone. Red meat and vegetables like broccoli, spinach, and other green leafy vegetables like collard greens or chard are good sources of ALA.
