I’ve been touting ALA for a few years now and even more evidence is coming out talking about all the benefits of ALA.
I prefer R-ALA, just a specific part, for losing fat and building muscle but it is also a potent antioxidant as well. ALA increases the size and number of cell mitochondria according to a study from the China Agricultural University in Beijing, China Mitochondria in a cell is what determines how many calories the body has to use for energy. So more fat loss.
ALA helps to stabilize your blood sugar and therefore helping your body composition, calorie burning and muscle mass.
