    It will help keep you in ketosis, if that is what you are going for.

    Na R-Alpha Lipoic Acid and this type is more bioaviable?

    that is correct

  6. can any one explain WHY and HOW it will keep you in ketosis?

  7. maybe "push nutrients (carbs)" in to the muscles not turns in fat?????

    Well it iss also part of Glycobol which looks to be a pretty amazing product so I'm also very intrigued. This is what the AI write up has to say about it:

    Sodium R-Lipoate (Na-r-ALA)
    ALA is naturally produced in the body as a mitochondrial enzyme cofactor. It is important to aerobic metabolism. ALA has been suggested to increase cellular uptake of glucose to cell membranes by recruiting the glucose transporter GLUT4. ALA improves skeletal muscle glucose transport, resulting in desirable blood glucose disposal and increased muscle glycogen concentrations. (1) Studies also suggest that in muscle, ALA is a potent anti-oxidant which protects cells from oxidative stress-induced insulin resistance. (2) The ALA used in this formula is chemically stabilized and of the highest quality. It's one of the most active isomers and one of the highest potency salts commercially available. ALA is an invaluable addition that offers a multitude of benefits plus countless extras for any serious athlete.

    Bottom Line: Best way to describe this effect is that it almost adds a filter to the muscle fibers; Taking in what it needs to prepare for growth.

    Correct, and you get the beneficial R entaniomer, instead of a mix of both, where the S has been shown to negate some of the benefits of the R.

    Glycobol has a nice dose of Na-RALA.


  10. Thanks I kinda thought thats what nutrient partioning was about. The metabolism of glucose passes through two routes one to glycogen (muscle) one to fat. Partitioning shifts the switch.

    Data would be nice.

    I used/use Anabolic Pump.

    Glycobol does have a growing fan base - there are some sides though.

  11. what sides are we talking about here?

    If you look it says "Do not take on a low carb diet" ? Hmmm

  14. It also helps push me into ketosis much faster on a low carb diet. To do this though, I usually have to take 2,000 - 3,000mg / day..

    Low carb = low blood sugar

    It can, and probably will bring your current levels lower. I tried taking my homemade glucose disposal agent before a meal once, and I started getting the shakes and dizziness.

  17. Its a potent means of cutting - you're keeping glucose out of the blood stream - but I'm uncertain whether burning protein instead of carb .... muscle protein ?

  18. I've been reading more and more that ALA taken with creatine, enhances the absorption of the creatine.

  19. It doesn't keep glucose out of the bloodstream. ALA, and it's many forms, help to increase the sensitivity of the receptors to insulin ad leads to less insulin being released. Insulin, while it is anabolic, can be detrimental to a physique because it may channel nutrients toward fat cells instead of muscle cells (depending on the environment and GLUT receptors activated).

  20. So is this stuff NOT ok to use on a TKD diet??

    then as I can be sure that pushes nutrients into muscle cells and not to fat?

    Through GLUT-4 activation. However, this is generally only stimulated by exercise.

    Stop making this so complicated. Carbs are not converted to fat just because GLUT-4 is not activated. There are incalculable factors that go into metabolism that is beyond my knowledge.

    You must spread some reputation around before giving it to Rodja again.
