R-ALA vs. ALA for cutting
why is R-ALA more primative for cutting than ALA?
should it be supplemented with any other aminos to help it work?

Use R-ALA and take it with carbs meals, however I'd skip it PWO. So all other carb meals.

oh and to the guy up top, r-ala is probably 10 times more powerful than ALA.

R- ala is the best but that shit is exspensive so i just buy the ala unless im really trying to get ripped

why skip it PWO?
i take it PWO
and take a double or triple dose PWO if using inulin - along with chrom picolinate

I personally don't feel its needed PWO since nutrient transport is at max efficiency at that time.

what about when injecting slin PWO - can it be beneficial then?

01-06-2006, 09:02 AM #9

In a roundabout way...yes! But of course it is not a miracle worker..you still got to kep carbs in check naturally. Or basically it does not give you free reign to have an extra cup of rice, oats, etc.. IMO.

How much are taking with each meal?
I just bought 200g of powdered ala.
But don't know how much I'm supposed to be taking.

most tablets come with 100mg - i take one or 2 (if its over 100g of carbs) with each carb meal
incidentally does anyone know what the R stands for
R ? - alpha lipoic acid

Racemic is an equal portion of the R and S isomers. Otherwise known as "standard" or "regular" ALA.
The R in R-ALA is to let you know that the compound contains only the R isomer, and is not combined with the S to form a "racemic" mixture.
Here is good link to scientific ALA info
