I haven't noticed a problem, but I'm only taking 600 mg per day so far. I'm working my way up to 1,200 but I'm being careful at first to watch that I don't accidentally go hypo as it can have a profound impact on insulin resistance in some T2's.
Yes! It’s asparagus pee! I thought I was losing my mind and I know I haven’t been eating asparagus! So glad that it’s not just me. I am taking 600 twice a day. I just started it less than a week ago so I’m still out on the results. It seems that my neuropathy has improved but I still want to give it a fair testing. Until then, asparagus pee it is!
I did take it for quite a while, it didn’t help my blood sugars, but that’s because I was unknown type 1 at the time and getting worse until insulin. I was taking it to help prevent damage by blood sugar issues. A couple articles about blood sugar control and nerve damage. I believe it was a combo of alpha lipoic acid and n acetyl carnitine together that worked better.
R lipoic acid is supposed to absorb better, but a lot more expensive so most people stick with ALA.
A magazine that just has a good article on the combo
