Has anyone had any sucess taking postworkout shake (Whey/Sucrose) with insulin potentiators? Like ALA, Vanadyl, chromium...etc?
And if so...which.

I cutting right now on a low carb diet, and I have been taking chromium picolinate and vanadyl sulfate with good success. They both essentially do the same thing. Chromium shuttles glucose to the muscle cells using insulin , but since Im on a low carb diet, my insulin production is super low. Thats how vanadyl works. it shuttles glucose to the muscles, but doesn't need inuslin to carry it. I guess it kind of mimics insulin. I'm trying to minimize muscle catabolicism, and its working....for now!

Vanadyl is good....better if taken w/ creatine tho...gives you awesome pumps when training and makes you more vascular.....give it a try
