R-ALA and females???
My girlfriend has been anti-supplement during our entire relationship. Tonight something came over her, and when I was taking some R-ALA before a carb meal, she decided she wanted to take one also. About 30 minutes later she started sweating like a pig, almost like as if she took a thermogenic. R-ALA has never, ever made me sweat. As a matter of fact, I don't feel anything from it. WTF?

Lower bodyweight so perhaps the insulin micry effects were more pronounced causing the effect of a carbload? Or perhaps she is normally hypoglycemic and the sensitization to insulin caused some sort of super carb receptiveness? Or theres always the dreaded placebo effect.

Interesting. Any other thoughts?

r-ala lowers blood sugar. When you have low blood sugar you may start sweating among other things. It doesn't have to do w/ her being a female (except as magg mentioned her smaller size), i have the same reaction to it and have to be extremely careful, even at like 280mg. I rarely use it, only on it now because of my GH.
(i take it 30 min before my GH shot, and add a 50g dextrose shake to mimic the effects of slin.)

As mentioned, because R-ALA can lower blood sugar, if I take 300mg and wait too long to eat, I get shaky.Originally Posted by DieTrying
What brand of R-ALA did she take?
I have had my girlfriend take 200mg of Bulk Nutritions r-ala right before eating and she has never had that problem.

all ALA does this to me, right now i use the K R-ALA from smi2e.biz.Originally Posted by DevilSmack
I've previously used smi2le's normal r-ala, syntrax's, and bulknut's.
