Bodybuilding supplement - alpha
lipoic acid [posted 1/13/99]
Question: What is your opinion on "alpha lipoic acid", which would be
used as a supplement for bodybuilding? What would be the ideal dosage used per day to get
good responses from this supplement? What other supplements could be added to this
supplement to produce better results?
Answer: My opinion is that it is without much merit. Creatine might be
of use, but will need more research.
