I have been taking amino acid supplements purchased at GNC; generally, I've been pleased with the results--improved health, mental attitude, etc. I'm curious about the dosing amounts for amino acids: L-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoleic Acid, Arginine, and Tonalin CLA (whatever the abbrevation might be). I have taken rather high doses of them--a 1000 mg., or more, daily. Are there any side effects that I should be mindful of? What are the side effects?
Regarding Tonalin: I have lost 15 lbs., in approximately three months and, while the initial result is effective, even exciting, I wonder if there is an actual limit for Tonalin--recommended dosing is two capsules/dy; I usually take from (3) to (6) capsules per day.
So..., I'm interested to hear from anyone with the expertise and/or his or her knowledge from experience, the little, ideosyncratic side effects (if any) from the high doseage of each vitamin. I have consulted numerous websites, too; however, I think actual experience will prove more effective.
"Yes, the vitamin! that venerable little pill!
I anticipate hearing from you!
