R-ALA is a potent and effective "universal" antioxidant.* It quenches free radicals in virtually all tissues in the body. R-ALA also exhibits insulin-like effects allowing greater nutrient uptake into muscle tissue. R-ALA 200 uses the more effective "r" isomer for a potent, very efficient and effective performance nutrient. R-ALA increases your muscles uptake of glycogen. This increases muscle cell volume and contributes to that full pumped feeling when you workout. This is a very desirable effect as the increase in muscle glycogen also increases other important nutrient transport that contributes to cell volume and muscle growth.

R-ALA is not a thermogenic but it does appear to contribute to favorable body composition changes. This is believed to be due to a nutrient partitioning effect where nutrients are channeled more to lean tissue and away from fat tissue. R-ALA will help enhance the efficiency of many different supplements. One in particular is Creatine HSC. R-ALA will help enhance the absorption of creatine into the muscle cell by providing a transport vehicle by its unique ability to mimic insulin. R-ALA should be taken in a capsule form and not in a pre-mixed powder.
