I can read stuff at a distance that I couldn't before. also I have pigment displacement syndrome, its a precursor to glaucoma, makes my eyes very light sensitive.. I can handle more light now too. weird I know but I have got to believe there is something to it.

    Very interesting to say the least. Maybe one of our pre-doctors could elaborate.

    In 4 - but the data says...

    Results are what I'm after period. I've never noticed a difference from using pro supps and not so, even if there is a statistical difference its insignificant to my body. My advice don't waste the cash. You guys analyze data I'll be EATING, yacking at every workout and taking my bulk products progressing every workout.

    Roundtable this ish up!
    Protein powders are not really "supplements" it's just a food replacement

    Protein is protein, of course it's better to get it from actual foods but shakes are convenient to add in some extra protein in your diet in the day.

    Protein powders are still sourced from food (dairy, cheese etc) but yeah it does get a bit much when all the other junk is added. A basic protein powder can be handy for anyone!

    Most people actually report blurry vision with dendrobium. The plant appears to possess anti-muscarinic compounds which should worsen accomodation

    There's literally no way it permanently improved your vision. It was probably secondary to various other causes. My vision gets considerably worse during the school year from reading at 1-2 feet distance from a computer, then improves rather drastically over the summer.

    Seems to be all antioxidants. I think what will matter is why you take it, dosage, and timing.

    I know its the better alternative but, I picked up the ALA for cheap from NP awhile back. Wondering best uses and if there are even any benefits.

    This. So by taking the Alcar in caps it takes about 20min to kick in.

    ALA still gives all the benefits NA-R-ALA does, you just may need to take more to get the same benefits.

    Is there by chance a topic or list on here of other 'do-not-mix' supplements? This has me wondering now. Using several powders regularly including ALCAR

    Also, both Na-R-ALA and ALCAR powder can be taken back-to-back.. no need to wait a specific time.

    Is there a standardized ratio of ALA to R-ALA? Bottom line, what are some protocols for dosing ALA for each of its potential benefits? Not its mighty big brother Na-R--ALA either lol

    There are a few very long and detailed thread on ALCAR and what it should be combined with. As I recall, the information was great.

    Not quite. The S-form (50/50 in ALA) considerably hampers absorption, Cmax, etc...something you will never see with R/NA-R-ALA

    I know the S form was supposed to compete for absorption, but I didn't know that it may actually reduce the actions of the R form and carry detrimental effects to mitochondrial metabolism.

    Well, I still have a bottle of the racemic mix, but after I'll switch back. Thanks for the knowledge.
