Yeah I bought a new supplement today. I rarely buy supplements other than Vitamin C, Multi-Vitamin and Fish Oils but I've heard some good things about this particular supplement and I figured it's worth a shot and experiment just for now and forgo the reliable BCAA supplements I've used in the past. I don't really need to change my eating or my workout habits, I just need to take this supplement before each meal in order for it to be effective.
R-ALA is a supplement which is similar to ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid), a natural antioxidant that turns glucose into energy. R-ALA is just a purer and more potent form of ALA. Since it increases muscle glycogen, it will increase your muscle cell volume (bigger muscles) and also contributes to the pump you feel when lifting.
People also report fat loss with this product. Since this product turns glucose into energy(the carbs you eat turn into energy rather than turn into stored fat, eg nutrient partitioning) which means you will get leaner without using a thermogenic(creates heat to burn fat ie fat burners with ephedrine, caffeine, etc).
I figured since it is safe, on sale and will allow me to eat carbs with no guilt, I'll try this supplement out. 30 dollars for a 30 day supply but I'll lessen the dose at first to assess my tolerance. I'll prolly start it this weekend if not this coming Monday. If anything it will have a psychosomatic/placebo effect and produce results that way since I don't like wasting money! Results are results nonetheless.
