I just bought some powdered ALA and I put some in with my creatine and a little water and stirred it up and it burned my throat and made me couch with every sip. I’m not being a bitch or anything I just wanted to make sure that sounds right to everyone. Thanks

Well given that it is called Alpha Lipoic Acid, I’m not surprised that it would be burning your throat to some degress.

Yep, this is right. Same thing happens with CLA. If you don’t want to waste your current supply, just get some empty capsules and load them up with your ALA.

Yeah I felt the burn initially but I have gotten used to it, just make sure that U wash it down with some water.

ALA = Alpha lipoic ACID
