Default Shelf life of R-ALA?

I have a bottle of R-ALA and use to take a capsule with my carbohydrate meals after working out. I do not know the date on them but bought them 2 years ago and I am just now starting to get back into the swing of things due to a long lay off.


Can they hurt me if they are past the expiration? What is the usual shelf life of R-ALA?


I have seen some R-ALA dated 2-3 years out from purchase date but not finding the date on mine worries me.

The were bought from bulk nutrition and it was their brand "Nutra Bulk"

It lost potency after 2+ years, but it's certainly safe to consume. If it's pure, bulk powder, it's long gone. If it's pill form it has some life left in it at least.

Thanks!

OK thanks man.

I guess I will try some today to see what happens.

BTW, is R-ALA a good idea for carb meals PWO durring cutting? I used to take it like I said but it seemed to make me really frail looking. I am not huge but the R-ALA seemed to make me really thin and loose by slight bulkiness I had.
