ALA

What do you guys think of the new product called loaded?
Loaded contains 100mg of R-ALA and
S-ALA. It also has vandyl and a few other glucose disposal agents.
With the new post about ALA and all the research info is R-ALA better or S-ALA or maybe a combo is the answer?
I have been using it for about a month now and it seems to work well for me.

Any input on any other type of Carb “eaters” would be great.

I asked this very similar question a while back and the feedback I receieved was that the only legit and worthwhile ingredient is the r-ala in the formula. Vanadyl sucks, ala, only contains half of the r isomer, the other glucose disposal ingredients aren’t worth a crap except for marketing hype. So, basically just buy r-ala, and maybe some chromium either histidinate or polynicotinate. I did and they both work great together, except be prepared to feel full forever after a big carb meal.
