**DISCLAIMER** You're not going to pack on 30lbs of pure muscle in a month. You will, however, be able to do more reps of high-intensity exercises, meaning more muscle stimulation (and potentially hypertrophy) than without supplementation. I'm no scientist. I just like working out :) I'm currently experimenting with a scientifically backed programme aiming to promote an increase in strength and hypertrophy through a combination of powerlifting and calisthenics. I take about 5g Beta-Alanine (a scoop-ish) about 20-30 minutes before each workout, and the effects are incredible. Having trained as a professional Muay Thai Boxer, I am no stranger to gruelling workouts. The kind where every muscle in your body burns and you feel as if your chest is about to explode in about 10 more push ups. With Beta-Alanine, the science and the first hand experience are truly incredible. I find myself able to carry out more and more reps without the burning sensation of the lactic acid. I find myself consistently adding more and more reps to my higher-intensity exercises without the drawback of the lactic acid build up. Typically after a workout I would struggle to do 10 controlled push ups due to the burning. Now I find myself able to do 25 without the "everywhere" burn stopping me. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to increase their endurance, particularly for high-intensity exercises, and for anyone looking for something that will help promote and stimulate muscle growth by increasing the work done on each muscle group. For anyone who wants the quick science: From what I understand, Beta-Alanine reacts with Histidine in the brain and muscles to produce Carnosine. For programmes with repetitive high-intensity exercises, glucose is used as the primary energy source, producing lactate and H+ ions when used up. These H+ ions acidify the muscles, reducing the pH and thus the ability of the muscle fibres to contract. Carnosine helps to buffer that reaction by prolonging this process. The muscle fibres can therefore contract for a longer duration (which is felt quite evidently in the workouts). The wonderful side effect we call 'the tingles', is known as Paraesthesia. Carnosine appears to activate a group of receptors (I googled the name of them, they're sensory neuron-specific G-protein coupled receptors) which are responsible for creating itchiness under the skin. I find my face and ears to be the main places for the tingles...
Goes Well With:

Could feel the effect of this straight away, I think it was one supplements I had been missing a lot and body benefited from it almost immiedetly It does what it says on the packet and mixes well, you don't even know it's in the drink The "tingles " that is associated with beta Alanine do exist but I don't mind them, mainly only felt them at the start and if you take more than suggested in one sitting. Good product that's hard to find in large amounts in a varied diet

Not recommended for migraine sufferers

I followed instructions on the back of the pack and I decided to put some squash in as it smelled bad. I mixed it and necked it, BIG mistake. I had tingles like pins and needles from head to toe, I laid on my bed with my eyes covered as it brought on a severe migraine, I was about to faint and vomited everywhere. I was ill for over two hours with my skin feeling like I was being pricked with needles. I am a beginner so if you haven’t purchased this before, I wouldn’t bother.
Goes Well With:
In the bin, unless you like the feeling of thinking you’re gonna die!
