How much of ALA to take after a high carb meal? I have one from Swanson 300 mg…i know i need the R-ALA from ALA but how much to take? 1200 mg is enough after the meal?
According to scientific literature, 600mg/die is plenty (DAILY not, after every single meal, in fact doses higher than 1500-1800 mg daily have proven to be toxic)
Hi…500 mg of R-ALA with a high carb meal is ok? Twice a day…total1000 mg/day…or it is too much? I feel heartburn when i take it and drink more water after…it is normal?
I’d be interested in the benefits and proper application of R-ALA into a body building program.
Im interested if any natural supplements do anything at all.
It should be taken before meals, not after. It’s essentially useless (as a glucose disposal agent) if taken after a meal.
Yes, it’s too much for you, as the reply you got a few weeks ago suggested.
That’s a normal side effect when the dose is too high.
Most commonly as a glucose disposal agent, it can help improve insulin sensitivity especially from high-carb meals. Ideally helping to “reduce the damage” of eating higher carb. It also has some unrelated antioxidant benefits.
There’s a ton of evidence (both lab and anecdotal) supporting a ton of different natural supps, including R-ALA.
Ohh…ok…and i think i have this reflux acid because of that…when i eat and when i train.most of the time when i bench for chest and lay down my head and when i push myself i feel like i vomit…on decline is even worse
are you working out 2 minutes after your meal ?
I have a meal with 2,5-3 hours before i workout…i quit the preworkout, but the feeling is the same
Thanks…now i take it before meals…just 500 mg/day…250 mg before two high carb meals and i don t have that heartburn anymore
