    REAL difference between R-ALA & Na-R-ALA??


    Besides the Sodium attachment for "stability" purposes.....Whats the major difference?
    I understand the difference between ALA and R-ALA, but what are the actual benefits to using the Na version over the R-ALA version for glucose purposes??

    Is there REALLY a major/significant difference between the two, or is this just like the 17 different versions of Creatine??
    You can get 120caps of 100mg R-ALA from a reputable company for $18, where as the Na-R-ALA version....not so much!

    Na-R-ALA is better at lowering blood glucose as well as absorption.

    You can get 25g of Na-R-ALA from a reputable company (nutraplanet) for 35 bucks, which is actually cheaper per gram...

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    Dont cap it? Find a scooper with the size you need. I have a little test tube vial that I put the powder in when Im at work so I drop a little water in it, shake it up and down it very very small water.. and get it over with as fast as popping a pill.
