Product Overview

What is Beta Alanine?

Beta Alanine is a non-essential amino acid and is the only naturally occurring beta-amino acid.

Benefits of Beta Alanine

Beta Alanine works with L-Histidine to increase Carnosine concentration in the skeletal muscle.

Who is Beta Alanine Suitable for?

Ideal for anyone participating in sports that require explosive actions such as sprinting, weight training or boxing and those involved in prolonged endurance exercise.

Beta alanine can cause a tingling and flushing effect on the skin. This is a perfectly normal reaction by the body and not harmful.

I've bought 1 kg of Beta-alanine, been taking it for 4 weeks now. About it's taste: No taste at all, which is perfect for me. I'm drinking it with water, I can't feel any difference in the taste compared to the water without Beta-alanine. About the mixability: It's okay. I put it in the shaker pour some water then shake for 5 seconds. About the effectiveness: As I said I've been taking it for 4 weeks, which is not a long duration, Beta-alanine needs time to show effects on endurance. I can clearly feel some effects, so I say I'm really satisfied with it. I would recommend it to anyone, thinking about increase endurance.

I have recently started a strict workout routine and purchased some supplements that I have never used before and I have to say this really helps a lot! I take Beta Alanine in a shake with Total Nutri Greens (Tropical) and water half an hour before all workouts. You can feel your skin starting to tingle about 25-30 mins after you have consumed the shake, which means it's working and you can start your workout. The difference I noticed is that I can run for much longer and feel less fatigued and also weight training becomes much easier (at one point I though I must have been doing something wrong because I felt really great and could workout for way longer than before). Will definitely be purchasing Beta Alanine again after I finish my pack!

As I've got older, I have become more concerned with effective supplementation in an ever increasing effort to try and maintain strength and muscle mass. Apart from good nutritional supplements, such as whey protein, and the ubiquitous creatine monohydrate, I have found very few, if any, have any real measurable effect - either on the scales/body composition or with objective workout performance. Beta Alanine is the exception to the rule and, for me, produces the kind of results that were previously limited to creatine. Workouts are more energetic and muscle contraction is more vigorous/sustainable. The results can also be measured in terms of body composition - an extra 1.5 pounds of lean muscle in around 6 weeks (with no other changes in either diet, lifestyle or training protocols).

Mixes very easily. It has zero taste when taken with juice. For me, the tingling sensation kicks in after 15 minutes and lasts about 1-2 hours and is tolerable (I actually like it), but avoid taking before sleep! I've only been taking it for a few days so I will not comment on effectiveness.

This stuff is just great. Use 2-5g as part of a DIY preworkout and make the most of your workout. Plenty of evidence to support its benefits and making a preworkout with this and other components is far more cost-effective and customisable than buying something off a shelf. Plus...the tingle and antsiness will make you HAVE to work out hard to overcome it!

Am I really the only person on here who gets extremely nauseous after taking Beta -Alanine? The sickness kicks in after about 30 mins and, as you can imagine, totally ruins a planned workout. Next day I tried another 3g and again the same outcome only this time I took it post workout. I didn't feel any of the tingles mentioned (except in my stomach!) and was starting to wonder if it was a rogue batch I'd received.I read through a few online forums and it appears that there are quite a few people who have experienced similar side-effects. My advice would be to purchase a small quantity first to be sure you don't suffer as I did and be left with a near full bag lying redundant on the kitchen shelf. Other than that it mixes well and is pretty much tasteless. I gave it a third attempt a few days ago and same old story. I,m now staying clear of anything that contains the stuff which unfortunately is most pre-workouts.Oh well, I do get an amazing buzz from caffeine-so espresso all the way!

I wanted something to help pump me up in the morning other than caffeine (which I use, but too much makes me feel queasy), and using this in conjunction with the caffeine in my pre-workout seems to have done the trick, so now I'm less reliant on the caffeine itself (which is great because I'm a tea drinker and was getting concerned by my general caffeine intake!) Sometimes I get the 'beta alanine' tingle, sometimes I don't... but I think that just depends on how much I've put in my shaker. I like the feeling though- it's my 'time to get going' tingle! :D It's almost tasteless, if not a little sweet dissolved (easily) on its own, but I do put it in a flavoured mix anyway. It's not noticeable. All in all, it does the job. No supplement is a miracle worker, and sometimes I question whether I TRULY need them, but I'll certainly give it 5 because I'm totally satisfied with the product and the job it's doing.

I find BA to be kind of sweetish, i mean its unflavored yes but you do feel a kind of side and to me the best description would be sweetish. Its grainy but not too much just without dissolving it in water it crunches under your teeth like sugar basically. In the bag it sometimes clumps up so you have a couple bigger rocks in there, but they brake down without much effort. At first you can get pretty big tingles but they disappear after some use. All in all good stuff.

Nice mildly sweet taste. Not as fine powder as I've gotten from other sources. Also, it seems like it's a little less effective. Maybe because more coarse powder won't absorb as well. But for it's cost it is great, IMO most cost effective source. It really helps with long workouts, so my muscles work till the end. I've done hard 2h+ gym workouts with 10g beta alanine and I lasted till the end (but next day is pain pain pain).

Just to let you know ,this stuff works ! As of many of the other reviews you do get the itch that starts from your head down to your legs ,takes 30 mins or so. After that train !!! Hit it hard as you like ,the muscles react better and the endurance improves and they feel sharper! I was sceptical when I got this stuff but yeah impressed so far and I'm sensible how and when I use it. Combine it with creatine and water pre workout and use your electrolyte drink during your workout and post workout use your recovery shake ! Happy days ! I use it for my punch bag weight training session ,improving core strength and improving my legs muscle endurance and sprint power for cycling .

I can't really say if this actually works, been taking for 2 weeks but every time I do it makes me feel sick. The itching isn't really as bad as other reviews suggest so that part of it didn't bother me and it does mix really well with no taste at all so I've been trying to get past the sick feeling to see if it subsides but after two weeks it's just as bad so I won't be taking this again and certainly wouldn't recommend it. Think I'll stick to BCAAs & Creatine.

Can't go wrong with beta alanine, it's been put through various studies & has been proven effective in all, definitely helps with the fatigue during a hard session, you'll be able to go lift harder for longer & the tingles are great too, definitely works well when combined with creatine, I'd recommend taking the beta alanine pre workout & then the creatine as soon as your done.

Only been using for a few weeks and takes several to fully get into system and increase power and energy during first lifting phase. So cannot fully rate. But hey it's beta-alanine it does and will work, always does. Unflavoured mixes easy with a good shake of bottle and taste is very palatable; tastes better than BCAA's, creatine & taurine for sure. The tingling/pins & needles feeling after a large dose is huge though so either divide up the dosage through day or don't take before bed if you cannot take the irritation.

This is my first review for MyProtein, and I felt I had to say something. After reading many reviews on the benefits of Beta Alanine I thought I'd give it a try. I'd heard about it giving you severe tingles and that 1.5 g should be enough. After weeks of taking this and increasing the dosage to nearly 3g I have still not felt any effects. Very disappointing and I feel like I've wasted my money. Whether this is a dud batch I got, or I have a massive immunity to Beta Alanine, I can't say that this product has done anything to my workouts.

Been using beta alanine for a while now and it has become an important part of my training. Certainly experienced improvements in strength and muscular endurance since using this product. The tingling sensation can be quite strong at first but you do get used to it, and I suggest maybe taking the servings with a meal if it's too irritating. The best time to take beta alanine is before a workout.

BA is by far the best supplement I have taken to date, the gains in performance are scary, I usually lift in the higher rep range and where I usually start to fail at 8-9 reps with BA I can easily get 3-4 more. I personally stacked it for a couple of weeks in the 4-5g per day range, now I feel that 2-3g pre work out is fine as after a while it builds up in your system. Yes you do get some tingles which are not bad but not good either if that makes sense, more of an odd feeling for maybe 30 mins. Start with 1g at a time and see what happens for you, everyone has a different level of tolerance to things.

I am someone that mainly used protein and creatine, with the odd pre-workout supplement (normally bought cheap off a friend who is very picky), for the last year. I tend to think a lot of supplements are either too expensive or overrated, so I stuck to the affordable protein and creatine combination. After doing some research, which I employ everyone should do, and a little wait for the sales, I decided to commit to a bag of Beta Alanine. This amino acid has got research to the point where it is on par with creatine and that means it works and each bag will contain a lot of servings. Research also suggests that it combines really well with creatine, suggesting that it give better results together than having either creatine or beta alanine alone. Beta Alanine has a crystal-like appearance and dissolves easily whether in water or juice. Please though, do not be critical of a supplement or its provider when the "itchy" or "tingly" feeling is absolutely normal for most people as a common side effect. It does not mean the substance is dangerous or of poor quality.

Goes Well With:

Creatine and preworkout stacks (and use as additional beta alanine to a commercial preworkout - i.e., extra 1.5g to a preworkout scoop that already contains 1.5g).

I've tried lots of various pre workoutS before, but they really affect my sleep pattern as I work shifts. I tried this as an alternative to caffeine based pre workout, and have to say it seems to be having the right effect. Seem to have more energy during my workout and less fatigue. No "crash" after which is a bonus. If you want a great tasting supplement this isn't it, but if you're only taking it because it tastes nice and not for the benefits then there is one question......do you even lift?
