Metformin
Is good in day with Low Carbo(ex 40 gr for day)?
And in Ripped Phase with Cicling Ketogenic Diet...in all day or only in day of High Carbo?
-Is better that ALA?
-Dosage for six weeks precontest....
Why?
---------------------------
Knowing sites and articles on Metformin for Bodybuilding?

Do a search,

lots of info is already here for you. Search for Glucophage & or Metformin.
ALA & Glucophage are not used for the same reasons. If I'm not mistaken, they're not at all alike.

Hey Magoo!!!

Please elaborate. I would like to know if these two products would synergize and the two equal more than the whole.

Thanks. ANGEL

You can use Metformin just like insulin on low carb days if you keep your protein intake up. This is not for novices mind you, as you can quickly become hypoglycemic if you do it wrong. Also note that metformin will increase your sensitivity to insulin. If you take it metformin with insulin, your bloodsugar will become very unpredictable, so be careful.

And ALA will do the same as Metformin?

In all the info I've seen, there's never been a comparison between the two. Please elaborate on how they are simalar compounds.
Thanks, GD

Yeh, I'd also like to hear the info on how ALA and and Gluco (Metformin) are similiar. I take ALA basically to keep my liver healthy when on orals (and of course it is just generally a great antioxidant) and I take Gluco with growth. I had no idea that the two were similiar. For one thing, as a couple of people have indicated you have to be a little careful with Gluco (tho not as much as with slin - slin is some REALLY serious shit IMO), and as far as I know as long as you don't just turn the bottle of ALA up there is no real need to watch for any sides, etc.

as diabetic drugs they both increase slin sensitivity and can lower blood sugar and help push u back into ketosis, that i show they are similar

I think ala is a better antioxidant than anything. However it does help the uptake activity like insulin because it is the main ingredient in synthesize. But I think that is all at a natural product level. Metformin is not for an advanced user, if anything it is for someone who is unsure about the route of insulin it's self. Look at past posts, Big A feels that ALL people should use metformin. Even non BB's.

When I say all people should be on metformin, I mean all adults, bodybuilders or not. It prevents type II diabetis, which is largely due to too many carbs in the diet which in turn makes the body release too much insulin which in turn makes one insulin insensitive which in the extreme ends up as type II.
