    alpha lipoic acid?

    wondering why it seemed i would get acne breakouts from this stuff? could it have to do with my insulin sensitivity being very high from it? i really see no correlation between the two. anyone else experience this? also, i felt extremely tired from it. is this dangerous to my health because i believe it must have been from hypoglycemia due to it causing high insulin sensitivity? thanks.

    Hey, I'm currently taking ALA and have been using before too, I get really tired from it as well if i take too much of it. My piss smells like shit too. I get a really good pump with my creatine though, its better than normal. I believe it isn't dangerous at all for you and ALA has mostly positive effects on your body.

    thanks for your response but i still am curious about if it causes acne in some? i have been thinking about it and have another guess as to why this might have happened. i have heard that ala thins your blood out a lot. maybe this action alone could cause more acne? i remember bleeding alot more when on the stuff (ex. when i would pop a zit, which i know i shouldn't do, the bleeding that followed wouldn't stop for a while). i don't know. anybody else have experience or heard about this too? thanks.

    Flexshack,

    I'm no expert, but maybe you're storing more fat, and carying more oils in your body from the upped insulin sensitivity. Try washing your face and areas of break out more often.

    Androholik,
    Your piss smells bad because it's an antioxident, getting rid of 'smelly' shit in your body.
