Beta Alanine is a non-essential amino acid and is the only naturally occurring beta-amino acid.
Beta Alanine works with L-Histidine to increase Carnosine concentration in the skeletal muscle.
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.

New to all this, just started using it few weeks back and i can say 100% it helps A LOT with my work outs (i take it 30 min before with Creatine) Only question, how many calories does it have ??
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.
effectiveness isn't always a given, i only get that tingly feeling from it once a week now which is sometimes disappointing! not sure if it is fully effective, but i use it as a pre workout mixed with some creatineGoes Well With:creatine water
Received some very questionable Beta Alanine from MyProtein. Product is sweet to the taste, looks like sugar in the bag? Taken doses up to 5g at a time without feeling the famous 'tingle' synonymous with BA use. Have to question if I actually received beta alanine? Goes Well With:Lab tests
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). Goes Well With:Porridge Oats
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.Goes Well With:Creatine, juice. Best taken between meals.
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.
Great stuff. Really works. Provides extra last min energy to squeeze out those last few reps. Definitely works. The pins and needles (paraesthesia) is bad at first but get used to it after two weeks. If you cannot cope with it then you're soft and shouldn't be training.
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. Goes Well With:Creatine
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.Goes Well With:Any liquid.
Good supplement. Only take a small amount to feel the affects.
OK I say awesome because you actually feel the effect of beta in you(PULSING THROUGH ME VEINSSSSZA). But the feeling is really weird, parasthesia they say, well luckily-i've read some where that the sensation goes after a while and that the body gets use to the extra Carnosyn..... I AM SO GLAD, why WELL IT FEELS LIKE A THOUSAND JABS ALL OVER YOUR BODY..... To soon to notice any thing.... Goes Well With:YOUR FAVOURITE JUICE
the side effects are to much for me, itching etc. dont like it wont be taking it again.
I'm only giving this 3 stars because I have only been takin gong it for nearly 2 weeks so may need to wait a bit longer to feel effect. Like I said been taking for about 2 weeks, I take one scoop with a glass of water 4 times a day two hours apart with the last my last intake about 45 mins before I go to the gym, but I have not yet felt any effects be it the tingling or improvement in the gym. I'll carry on taking it till it's finished and I might up it to 1 and a half scoop a time Goes Well With:Water
Bought it as I knew it was an effective ingredient in pre workouts so I wanted to see if I would notice a difference if I took it consistently and I personally feel as it has made a difference. It's cheap anyway so its worth a try at leastGoes Well With:Water
Excellent base for any pre workout mix. Results seen immediately as well as strength/speed gains over time. Goes Well With:Taurine & creatine
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.
I mixed this with my beast mode another pre work out formula, this is very intense if you can stand the tingle sensation witch will come! Regardless of stature size weight it is the perfect mix. Beta also brings out the veins in you witch I find great looking. Well worth the money and will definitely buy again. Goes Well With:Beast mode
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.Goes Well With:High rep ranges
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).
Just started to use this but going fine . The " pins and needles " are quite strong depending on the dosage but wear off pretty quick . All in all good Goes Well With:Creatine
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?
As far as taste and mixing goes this works very well. I am not really sure if it has made any difference to my training, probably to early to tell. As far as the itching side effect goes I can't say I have had any reaction what so ever.Goes Well With:Whey, water, juice.
Bought this the other day, packaging says use 4 times a day - I really believe I would be dead/have had killed myself had I followed these instructions. I know that people react differently, maybe it isn't the same for others but 10 minutes after one scoop mixed with water I began to get itchy in the palm of my hands, then on my ears - I know right? Soon I was itchy in various places. It wasn't your regular itch, but felt more like the itch you get when you come inside from the freezing cold to really warm. I have never written a review on here because every product in the past has been good. This one was literally unbearable, will never take again.Goes Well With:Scratchy
First test of this product. Read some reviews it didn't taste good. Its fine!! But drink it quick, any left on the tongue gives a tingling treat. As for the results. Well I'm a triathlete, and it's helped my training, rather pleased. Tbh. Goes Well With:.
decent product does whar it says. Gone up in my major lifts since I started using it. I mix it with BCAA tropical to create a pre workout drink.
This product increases my endurance and its tingling effect gives me a little buzz that makes me push more weights. I recommend to give it a try, since not everyone likes its tingling effect.
3weeks in lov this stuff deff givs u focus .....get it.lookin forward to the results I know r comin
I've used this product for around 4 months on and off due to down season in my sport, while I used this I noticed a difference in my performance and I liked the tingle it gives, it reassured me that something is working somewhere, however, I have more recently started using it properly at the gym, with great effects as a pre work out long side BCAA 4:1:1, CEE and Taurine, a great combination and I can feel my mental game increase when I feel the tingle now, knowing it's working inside my system. I would always recommend MyProtein's products.
Great for endurance sports, but i do not like the tingling effects. But it works
This is an excellent product, it mixes well with pretty much anything, it tended to have a few grams before I worked out with water and a few frames spread throughout the day. The effects are fairly immediate initially there is a slight tingling in your hands and when at the peak of exercise the burn in your muscles is significantly reduced, with even a slight cool sensation in your muscles. Around a great product
This supplement must be part of your stack whether your goal is to build muscle, burn fat or get stronger. Best taken pre- and post workout. It makes your skin feel "tickle" after taken which is normal, gives you fantastic results, no taste at all so can mix it with everything.
This stuff is amazing for a pre workout, i even mix it in with my pre workout just to get that extra kick! This stuff really helps you push through an intense workout! Great product!
First time I try this. And used a bag. It mixes excellent with anything. Milk, water,chocolate milk, anything. The first Time taking it, the buzz and tingleling in your body is kind of scary and in an non pleasant. When you get used to it, it is a lot nicer and you get a "I am freaking great and ready now!" I can tell pure difference on both running and weight lifting kilos I am capable to take. Great product Takes on in the morning, lunch and then 1hour - 45 minutes, before workout.Goes Well With:Any liquids!
I've been using this product for a couple of weeks now and its great. The first few times it made my stomach go a bit strange but i lowered my dosage by spreading it over the day more and it works. I use half and half with creatine and the boost is awesome.
My brother recommended this product to help improve my endurance. I had got my run distance up to 12k, but at 10k would start to feel leg tired. 2 weeks ago I did my first (chip timed) 5k in 29:50 (prob slow by your standards, but hey it was fast enough for me!) and last week I did the run in 28:43, wey hey, and bwoy did I feel good. I've also got my long distance pace down to 6:06/km from 6:28/km. My aim is to clock 15km by the end of April and complete a 1/2 marathon sometime in Autumn. I also do weight training, cycle, aerial fitness and pole fitness both the latter require a certain degree of upper body strength. Great product, I'm sold on it. Goes Well With:water
I do 400m running and for my training i really feel the difference when pushing out those last reps, and in the last 50m or so on reps. only downside is it doesn't come with a way of measuring so can be difficult when measuring out the dosage. Also if you take too much i find you get very itchy! other than that I would recommend!Goes Well With:Hurricane XS
Mixes OK, not amazing, but does a great job. Easy to control dose without having to take multiple tablets. Effective at improving performance in the 7+ rep range and for repeated sprints.Goes Well With:Creatine Monohydrate
Fantastic supplement. Put up with the funky taste and the tingles and you will train harder and for longer. Great for Hiit or weight training! Goes Well With:BCAAS
It's good! But I do feel the "tingy" feeling as described by others! But it goes off after awhile. Other than that, it is awesome!
All my best recommendation for beta - alanine product. I am using the product (5 gr daily) for the firts time and my endurance training felt much different and more powerfull. Super! :)Goes Well With:Any kind of sport products.
I've got chills, they're multiplying and I'm improving self control, cuz the power its supplying, its electrifying! Absolutely no issues with solubility, just add the dosage into the shaker, add some water and... give it a shake. Neutral taste, rapid absorption, you get tingles all over your body a few minutes after drinking the stuff. Gives a good boost to mood, energy and overal physical performance. And also excellent value for money. Goes Well With:Water, AAKG, Taurine
Taste and mixability with this product is not an issue if you take a scoop, put it in your mouth and then have a drink as there is no taste at all. Can't rate the effectiveness of it because I just started to use it today, but I really hope to see some change as I am a basketball player and my quads get tired quickly. Hope this helps!Goes Well With:Water.
Like other unflavoured amino acids, this one tastes bad, and I would recommend having it with some strong squash, not water. A lot of people report a feeling of paresthesia when they use this amino acid, and they're not wrong. It tingles, sometimes unpleasantly however after 3-4 times using this product the tingling dies down/you learn to phase it out. I have this pre-workout with other amino acids and it really helps. My seated shoulder press went from 14KG in each hand to 18 and then to 20 in two sessions, and you can't argue with those sort of results. Goes Well With:Creatine Taurine Caffeine
Due to it being in crystal form, this supplement is really easy to swallow and also works out quite a lot cheaper than the tablets. I just use a full 3g scoop with a shot of diluted orange cordial 20 minutes before my workout. I love the tingling feeling that it gives, and I also find that it improves my mood and enthusiasm significantly meaning a more positive and beneficial workout.Goes Well With:200mg caffeine
I'm really happy with this product. I did a lot of research prior to any form of stimulant - I don't drink coffee so I've never even had caffeine! I use it as a pre-workout and mix it with my creapure. Then I have a smaller dose after my workout with my Impact Whey Protein. I get the tingles - like most do - they're not bad though, gives you that buzz that you expect to power through your workout. I'll be back for more.Goes Well With: My Protein Creapure
Weirdly gives a really strange tingling sensation all over my body. Very good for reducing muscle fatigue in long gym sessions, seen good results due to more training capapbility.Goes Well With:can't taste it if you mix it with any flavored drink
Cheap, its very well tested and it works. I have seen a difference since taking it so im very happy with the product and would advise anyone to give it a try.
This supplement arrived promptly in a pouch that fits through the letterbox. It is easy to use. It mixes well in juice. The 6 week loading block was effective alongside training for improving repeated sprint performance.
