    I get my ALA from flax oil, it's incredibly cheap that way. Each 1g cap has about 500mg of ALA. The 1/2 tsp of flax oil I add to my AM oatmeal has even more. Am I missing out on anything?

    That would mean that flax seed oil is 50% ala?

    Didnt know that, but at 39 you should watch the flax, it lowers testosterone.

    banana leaf? sounds interesting. i'll have to take a look at that. i've been using glucophage lately (glucophage, not glucophase xr) and i have to say that it is rather awesome.

    Dang! You are correct sir! It is Alpha-Linolenic, and not Alpha-Lipoic. Thanks for setting me straight.

    while saturated fat from beef maintains or raises it within normal range

    From a brief search it sounds like the jury's still out on that. Seems like healthy fat in a diet raises T, but at least one study that added flax seeds to a lowfat diet was correlated to slightly lowered T, could have been to the low fat diet and that it was seeds, not oil, though (this from an article by John Berardi).

    Here's a link to Berardi's article:

I think at most you'd take 200mg (2 GXR's) with one meal, but that is only if it has quite a large amount of carbs.
    On my GXR bottle it says that each cap contains 250mg K-R-ALA, so are you saying that 250mg K-R-ALA=100mg R-ALA?
