I currently supplement with ALA. I have 200mg tabs. I take one with breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
I can't say what kinda results I've had while taking it. Haven't noticed any, but I know its beneficial to my body. Plus I supplement with with Vitamin C, so it helps better utilize the C.

So you guys are taking it with meals? I thought it was supposed to be taken before.

ALA is a good supplement.
But the best version is the K-R-ALA or the N-R-ALA.
They help you with the carbs, as they are known as insulin-like-effect

take it 25-30 minutes before a meal to give it time to activate the GLUT-4 receptors thats the function on carbohydrate metabolism thats basically the point of taking any form of ALA. if u have regular ala u can assume that its half s-ala or the inactive isomer and half r-ala. so dose accordingly

I've read ALA also helps creatine absorption, when dosed together.
