    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

  10. 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

  12. And also, thanks for the discussion. I know its been talked about in various threads, but no real compilation of info on simply ALA

    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

    Thanks, but im not just interested in coingesting it with alcar. And, most of that info pertained to one of the other forms of 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.

  18. Always a fan of PA's work...thoughts on the new 1,3 alt for clear shot?

    The first of these naturally occurring ingredients, is called
    Echinospine. Echinospine is a constituent of globe thistle and has a history of use in Bulgaria and other countries as a safe stimulant/nootropic to treat fatigue and depression.

    The other naturally occurring ingredient is 2-amino-5-methylheptane.
    This product is found in natural plant species such as Acontium
    kusnezoffii as well as som algae species. It is an aliphatic amine
    with adrenaline like activity. It too has a history of use and
    safety in Europe.

  19. Something I have always wanted to learn more about are glucose disposal agents.... Are they worth the consideration?

    Yo Ace! Lol a lot of People enjoy AP I've never used it to be honest or really looked into the ingredients.

    They seem to have their place. My best advice would be to check the formulas and search the actives. Berberine shows quite a bit of promise.

    Yep. I thought Cissus powder was bad but Berberine kicks Cissus ass in the bad tasting department. The taste stays in your mouth/throat forever!

    I need to badly. I've been parachuting it.

  27. I've tried a few gda's with mixed results... AP is my fav for doing what it says. Pumps me up like crazy and seems to help move things along in the right places. Glycophase was ok for the pumps and such but was spectacular pre bed for deeper and more refreshing sleep. Also tried slintensity was eh all around. Nothing great to speak of there.
