AST R-ALA 200

90 Capsules


ALA increases your muscles uptake of glycogen. This increases muscle cell volume and contributes to that full pumped feeling when you workout. This is a very desirable effect as the increase in muscle glycogen also increases other important nutrient transport that contributes to cell volume and muscle growth.  
 
ALA is not a thermogenic but it does appear to contribute to favorable body composition changes. This is believed to be due to a nutrient partitioning effect where nutrients are channeled more to lean tissue and away from fat tissue.  
ALA will help enhance the efficiency of many different supplements. One in particular is Creatine HSC. ALA will help enhance the absorption of creatine into the muscle cell by providing a transport vehicle by it's unique ability to mimic insulin. As we said in an earlier answer, you must use ALA in a capsule form and not in a pre-mixed powder.  
 
ALA is also one of the most potent antioxidants available. And, when taken with other antioxidants it actually enhances their antioxidant abilities.  
 
Questions & Answers  
 
I have seen where some creatine powders have ALA added to them to help creatine uptake. Does this work?  
No! There's a big problem with this. You see, ALA is a very unstable chemical that will degrade rapidly if exposed to atmospheric conditions for even short periods of time. In fact, when we purchase our ALA it is delivered in special 2 kilogram vacuum packed packages that uses a UV protected plastic. This packaging shields the ALA from both air and light.  
 
It's almost comical how these companies formulate their products. They will read in a magazine where ALA mimics insulin. They will read in another magazine where spiking insulin helps increase creatine uptake. Ding! A light goes off in their head. 'We'll add ALA to our creatine and market the shit out of it.' That is the extent of the research investment many supplement companies adopt. It's ridiculous.  
 
If you add ALA to a creatine powder the ALA will degrade and become ineffective in a matter of hours. As the ALA is dispersed in the powder it's exposure to massive amounts of air, light, and moisture causes rapid degradation. By the time you purchase the product, the ALA is useless.  
 
This is why you should never use a creatine with the ALA already mixed in. This is exactly why we do not add ALA to any of our powders. To get the added benefits that ALA has on creatine uptake you should take the ALA in capsule form along with your creatine. The capsule will protect the ALA from outside elements and ensure that you are getting the full potency.  
 
What other supplements are good to take with ALA?

When I take ALA my muscles get really pumped when I train and stay that way for a lot longer than normal. Don't get me wrong I like this and it feels awesome but why does this happen?

This is a very desirable effect as the increase in muscle glycogen also increases other important nutrient transport that contributes to cell volume and muscle growth.  
 
I've noticed I'm considerably leaner and more muscular after taking ALA for 4 weeks. Does ALA burn fat?  
This is commonly reported. ALA is not a thermogenic but it does appear to contribute to favorable body composition changes. This is believed to be due to a nutrient partitioning effect where nutrients are channeled more to lean tissue and away from fat tissue.  
 
What should my dosage be with ALA?  
We recommend taking 200 milligrams (1 capsule) 3 times daily with meals. Research has shown that 200 milligrams increases blood levels of ALA the same as 600 milligrams, so there is no need to take more than 200 milligrams at any one time. Also 600 milligrams daily has been shown to be just as effective at muscle glucose uptake as 1200 milligrams per day so therefore there appears to be no need to take more than 600 milligrams per day.
