- ALA – Alpha Lipoic AcidAlpha Lipoic Acid is a unique amino acid that we introduced 3 years ago that works as an insulin mimicker. It actually mimics the action of insulin to help shuttle nutrients into the muscle cell.A couple of years ago I wrote an article on using ALA with creatine to help increase the absorption of creatine. Shortly after I released the article a company came out with a creatine supplement with added ALA and promoted all the benefits of the two together. We know where they do their research.The only problem here (and is a perfect example of how most supplement companies get their information) is that ALA is a very unstable chemical. Putting it in a powder will cause rapid breakdown in a very short period of time. You can certainly use ALA to help creatine absorption, but not mixed in with the creatine. You must take it in capsule form.
I highly recommend ALA. Take 200 milligrams with each meal for enhanced nutrient uptake. I also recommend taking ALA each time you take creatine for enhanced creatine absorption. Remember, never take ALA if it’s pre-mixed into a powdered supplement. Only take ALA in capsule form.
