Product Overview

Description
  • R(+)-Alpha Lipoic Acid
  • Hyper-Glucose Transport System
  • Dietary Supplement

R-ALA-200 is a potent antioxidant and pro-insulin mimicker. It works to shuttle more glucose into muscle tissue as well as produce intracellular glutathione for enhanced cellular protection. R-ALA-200 contains 200 milligrams of pure R[+]-ALA per capsule. R[+]-alpha lipoic acid is the natural active enantiomer of lipoic acid and has been shown in research to be far more bioavailable making it significantly more potent and effective than standard R,S alpha lipoic acid supplements.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule three times daily with meals.

For enhanced creatine effectiveness, take 2 capsules with a serving of Micronized Creatine and VP2 Whey Isolate 30 minutes after workout or athletic event.

Other Ingredients

Dicalcium phosphate, magnesium stearate, gelatin.

Warnings

Keep container tightly closed in a cool, dry and dark place. Keep out of the reach of children.

R-ALA v's RS-ALA
R-ALA (natural form) gives you more bang for buck than RS-ALA (synthetic). This makes you sharper throughout the day... and sometimes when you're starting your thinking becomes lightening fast. That effect soon wears off... and some people never experience it. Presumably the people with the greatest problems are the ones most likely to experience this effect. Lipoic acid has two sulphur bonds and chelates mercury better than most sulphur containing substances which normally only contain 1 sulphur bond eg. methionine, cysteine, MSM, etc... Alternatives to ALA are DMSA and DMPS but both are synthetic... while ALA is natural to the body. RS-ALA makes me feel unwell if taking it continuously (even at low levels)... while R-ALA does not (even at higher levels)... so I prefer the R-ALA version. Even though it costs more... it seems to do more... so the price difference is worth it. This is a useful product when you know you have a problem to solve (a procrastination breaker?) or have to be sharp for an important meeting. It has a reputation as a nootropic (smart drug). It's a product that is natural to the body and helps your body become healthier by removing heavy metals and other toxins. :-)

Mmmm - not convinced it did anything
Didn't notice any difference in memory or cognitive function while taking this product.
