    Why are r-ALA supplements being discontinued?


    All I'm seeing everywhere concerning these supplements is "discontinued". Why?

    Has something better come along? This was touted as the greatest antioxidant, what has changed?

    Sorry, yes, I have been living under a rock (trying to nurse myself back to health) lately...

    Thanks

    Grunt (yes, the same, but my other account got hacked or something).

    Really?

    On NP's store page, both of Primaforce's ALA products are discontinued. DS' Glucophase, same thing. And NP's own Na-r-ALA caps are out of stock...

    What's a man to do? Are there other good r-ALA products? I use to always take Prima's Insopro, loved it for the integrated biotin...

    Since you must know everything, here goes: I use to be a bodybuilder, but I had to stop when I got sick. Now I have chronic exhaustion, Diabetes type 2, sleep apnea and cancer, among other things. I cannot function at all during my days, never mind bothering with powders or capping.

    Are you happy now? Is your life much more complete now that you know the state of my biology?

    Meantime, I searched for "SAN Na-R-ALA" on NP and no dice. Does the product have a name I should look for instead?

    Why the snarky comments? He was just asking why not powders as powders allow for customized dosing and are much more versatile.

    Why all the questions? If I don't want powders, I don't want powders. It's as simple as that.

    Puzo was making a suggestion that he thought would benefit you. Powders are more cost effective and versatile. All he asked was why no powder form. You didn't have to be a complete dick with your response and just said powders aren't for you. He asked why to try and help you out.

    If you are going to cop that attitude, we might just have the same reaction when you come here with your QUESTIONS seeking help.

    So instead of acting like an adult and saying "I just prefer it to be capped" you decided to act like a child when people are taking time out of their day to help you....

    So... Not wanting to talk about being on the brink of death is being a complete dick? I should just be really happy to tell you all that I'm in the process of dying a fairly slow and painful death and chit-chatting with you all about that, and be REALLY REALLY HAPPY ABOUT IT huh? Really? Do you have neurons? Do they work?

    I said NO POWDERS. He asked that I justify my personal choice of no powders. But I'm the jerk. I said no powders. You state that if I had written "powders aren't for me" it would have been better. I disagree, since I already stated "no powders". He is the one who was rudely insisting that I speak of some very very private matters that do not concern him or anyone on this forum. He couldn't have known you say? Well, it's called PRYING and it is impolite and rude. My tone was simply an answer almost on a level with that degree of rudeness. But not quite, because I like to think I'm better than that.

    Can you understand this? Is it really that hard? The topic of this thread is r-ALA supplements, not powder VS caps or why I prefer them. Is this really so complicated? Looks pretty simple to me...

    But no, I understand that underpowered beings prefer to gang up and stick together when confronted with someone they don't know, trying to give themselves a feeling of superiority and of rightfulness, no matter how wrongheaded the actions are. So you are doing that. Very cute. Get over your insecurity, admit you are all wrong, and we'll leave it at that. OK?

    He wasn't prying at all. He said get powder, you said no, he asked why, you rudely responded.

    I don't care if you're dying slowly, living well, or anything in between. You responded rudely and were called on it. It's called courtesy, people are going out of their way to answer your questions to the best of their ability and you're being a tool.

    Wow. Now, here is a specimen of greatness, implying that I should abandon the idea of living. Euthanasia suits you. For yourself. Ask your doctor about it.

    Well, obviously your neurons don't work well at all. His asking why is impolite. It *IS* the very definition of prying. That you cannot compute this with what's between your ears speaks volumes about your abilities in general. I will not speak further to you, as you are obviously incapable of comprehending even the most basic of statements.
