Capsules may contain fillers. So if you want dry R-ALA, you are better off with powder.

Also, for some bases, the easiest to mix in will be oil-solubilized gel-caps, which seem to be what they call RALA-Gel.

Their liquid K-RALA-10 contains water, so there may be some storage issues.

I haven't tested any of these personally, so can't be sure. I probably will, at some point ...

Dr T,
Have you finally tested any ALA or R-ALA products for solubility?
Thanks!
Mike

ALA is available in solubilized form in MCT oil softgels, and I tested it - seeed fine. R-ALA I've seen only powder. One has to actively dissolve it.

Where can we get the ALA dissolved in MCT(Medium Chain Triglycerides?) Is R-ALA also available dissolved in MCT? Is there any reason to believe that topical R-ALA would be more effective than topical ALA? or have more side effects??
Thanks!
