ALA vs. ALCAR

  1. Arrow ALA vs. ALCAR


    I know that ALCAR can be very effect with regards to fat loss and is good as a preworkout supplement, but does ALA have the same effect?


  2. They are not the same but stack well together.

  3. For the purpose of fat loss, would you use ALCAR then before ALA?

    I would use both. They are synergistic. I have not seen any profound fatloss from either one. For fatloss I maintain a caloric deficit through diet and cardio.

    ALA and ALCAR are great nutrient partitioners and anti-oxidants. ALCAR has been shown to increase exercise performance and it does so for me. I haved recently lowered my dosing of ALA to maintain anti-oxidant benefits and use Anabolic Pump for nutrient partitioning. User feedback so far makes AP the logical choice to aid in fatloss along with a sensible diet and exercise regimen. IMO

    I take 2000 mg ALCAR preworkout and 100mg KR-ALA postworkout. AP 3 pills ed.

  5. Is it best to take ALA with meals or prior to meals? I've been taking it 10-15 minutes prior to meals.... and is it best to dose ala and alcar at the same time? I was thinking it is best not to take alcar with food but I'm not sure where I got that from????

    With ALA there won't be that much difference given those time frames although I prefer just prior. ALA will help clear glucose from tha bloodstream (Anabolic Pump may be better for this), which will assist in fat loss cycles. I would not over do it however while bulking as if you are eating a ton, chances are you'll also get fat quicker. In this regard it's best used as an antiox.

  7. What about the alleged difference in efficiency between ALA and R-ALA (both in combo with ALCAR)? Has anyone here ever noticed a real difference in terms of antioxidative capacity? (I think I remember that 100mg R-ALA are said to equate 400mg ALA...)
