Beta Alanine is one of the 20 amino acids required in protein synthesis. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins whereby Beta alanine is a non-essential amino acid and the only naturally occurring beta-amino acid.
Beta Alanine works with L-Histidine to help increase Carnosine concentration in the skeletal muscle. Beta alanine can cause a tingling and flushing effect on the skin which some individuals find to give a motivating effect. Beta alanine can be taking within loading and maintenance phases whereby consumption can be spaced throughout the day.
Beta alanine is ideal for anyone participating in sports looking to increase ability and performance within prolonged exercise that requires explosive actions such as sprinting, weight training or boxing and those involved in prolonged endurance exercise.
Warnings: Beta Alanine can cause a tingling and flushing effect on the skin. This is a perfectly normal reaction by the body and not harmful.
Loading Phase (days 1-5): Consume 2 tablets 4 times daily, spaced evenly throughout the day.
Maintenance Phase (days 6-35): Consume 2 tablets 2 times daily, spaced evenly throughout the day. For best results continue the Maintenance Phase until day 35. A complete 35 day period requires 160 tablets (2 tubs). Upon completion of the 35 day period we recommend taking a 2 week break before starting again. Servings are best taken in-between meals.

These are a little hard to swallow as they are a bit chalky but once you get used to them it gets easier. I don't think there is any need for loading as they can be just used pre workout. They do seem to hold off the lactic acid somewhat making it easier to push yourself that bit harder. Also used before cycling and going uphill was easier on the legs.
The tingling with Beta Alanine is nothing to be worried about, it's like having extremely mild pins and needles to say the most. I train fasted so muscle endurance is a slight issue but BA completely tackles it. My only intake is before the gym and about 30 minutes before of four tablets.Goes Well With:water
Great product. Instantly noticed greater endurance and a distinct reduction in lactic acid build up. I didn't adhere to the recommended daily intake as it seemed excessive. I took two tablets half hour prior to working out and it gave me bags more energy. Definitely no 'placebo' effect!
Beta Alanine is easy to consume, tablets aren't too big. It seems to help in my training. I have slight tingles in my face after about 10 minutes of taking but nothing major.
Product seems to work well when used with kre alklyn. A noticable gain in size and strenth within 2 weeks.
"This product definitely gives you a kick for when you're in the gym, however the two downside's are: 1) Part of me thinks the kick doesn't actually give you any more energy, it's more of a tingling/pins and needles, than a boost of energy; 2) Immunity builds up real fast, so after a couple of weeks you'll need to start upping your dose, or take some time off it for a while. Interesting product, but I wont be buying it again."
"Works nicely, good cost effective source of this supplement,"
