The effects of alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) on the growth, body composition, postmortem AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activation, and 24-h muscle pH were investigated. Thirty male C57BL/6J mice were fed diets containing 0, 0.5, or 1.0% ALA (DM basis). At the end of the 3-wk feeding trial, carcass weights decreased (P < 0.05) 14 and 30% for mice fed 0.5 and 1.0% ALA, respectively, compared with the 0% group, with decreases in BW as the levels of dietary ALA increased. This change in carcass… CONTINUE READING
