Product Overview

What is Beta Alanine?

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

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.

Useful in the right circumstances

Firstly, I find reading these reviews hilarious. Why do people think this is a stimulant? The tingling that is associated has absolutely nothing to do with the actual performance benefit. There are many reasons that the 'tingle' might not be present, and its actually quite normal for this effect to diminish once your body's carnosine conc. increases. There is no benefit behind having beta-alanine directly before a workout and is therefore useless taken sporadically in so called 'pre-workout supps', which are only really useful for the caffeine content. I'm not saying everyone should be an expert in nutrition, but they should certainly have a reasonable understanding of the supplements they take and for what purpose. Beta-alanine taken correctly (6 g daily for the first 4 weeks, 3 g daily thereafter) will increase carnosine, and in turn, improve tolerance to very high intensity exercise although published evidence is only just in favour of this theory.

Having never taken this product before I was initially shocked by it's impact. When it kicks in you get an intense tingling, uncomfortable, like being stabbed by needles all over. I soon realised I was taking too much and at the wrong time. Take this just before a work out and when the tingling kicks in make sure you've started your session, usually takes about 10 -15 minutes. The feeling you get makes you push harder and the harder you push the less uncomfortable the tingling. Having read that back it sounds bizarre but it's exactly how I feel. It doesn't mix brilliant but it's not shocking. It also doesn't taste great but let's face it....it's not meant to be a milkshake. I'll be buying this again for sure, really noticed strong results. A more intense session with an added pump.

Goes Well With:

BCAA powder and a pre workout. I mix 1 part beta, 1 part bcca, 1 shot of pre work out (opposed to the 2 shots the mix recommends, 1 part whey protein and some coffee granules. Mix it up, throw it down you and have an incredible session!

I use this mixed with juice, it’s got a neutral taste so cant taste it. Mixes well apart from a few little bits that sink to the bottom of my sports bottle, however this is not so bad. I found before taking this I would get the muscle ache burn and my muscles would fatigue too early and even cause me to fail reps and had a mixture of days were I be low on energy and have to lift lighter weights and keep failing reps. Since taking Beta Alanine however I’ve found that it combats this issue I can maintain my training without any major fatigue and can train longer with a boost also in explosive force, which was a bonus for me on days were I didn’t quite have enough energy to get the movement going. I can now train longer and push myself further now. I find I now get a good training session all the time now. In terms of the pins and needles, I’ve found I only get this over 2g per serving. However I wouldn’t say it’s that bad, not even the kind of pins and needles you get when your arm goes to sleep after circulation returns. I would describe it as more of a warming mild tingling, almost like if you have used a muscle spray after sports to give a warming sensation more localised around the facial area. This doesn’t last long for those who are put off by this effect. I have found using with Creatine has the effect of enhancing each other.

Beta alanine is included in a range of pre workout product which are not always used on a daily basis which does not allow for the saturation effect of this supplement. Overtime this product builds up levels in the muscle tissue and i feel provides a greater endurance benefit allowing for more reps to be performed before failure. There is a slight tingling sensation that can occur after first using but this soon disappears after continuous use and is of no concern and is a mild side effect that is harmless. BA works well with creatine mono and bcaas to provide a greater boost in strength and endurance allowing for more productive workouts. if you found any value in this review then please use code: GEOFF - RDT (no space in between dash and letters) and all in capital letters at checkout to get up to 85% off order depending on current offers.

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'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.

Goes Well With:

Creatine, juice. Best taken between meals.

Supplements with unbelievable benefits and festive discounts which no other companies will provide.Vegetarian sources of proteins include legumes, nuts, seeds and fruits. Legumes, some of which are called pulses in certain parts of the world, have higher concentrations of amino acids and are more complete sources of protein than whole grains and cereals. Examples of vegetarian foods with protein concentrations greater than seven percent include soybeans, lentils, kidney beans, white beans, mung beans, chickpeas, cowpeas, lima beans, pigeon peas, lupines, wing beans, almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, pecans, walnuts, cotton seeds, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds. I'm the authorise sponsor of my protein. You can checkout on my insta - kartin_shok. Using my referral code will give you amazing discount.Myprotein is undoubtedly the best brand available these days in terms of quality and value for money. Dont be fooled by fake users copying fake images of stamps at the end of their reviews and claiming to be authorised reviewers. there is no such thing as authorised reviewers. they have just copied and posted the same reviews again and again and again, desperateiy wanting to earn referral credits. Myprotein supplements are good after a workout is one of the best time to get protein into the body so that the protein can be delivered to your muscles, to begin healing the micro tears i.e very small tears in the muscle tissue, caused by intense contraction of the muscle during workout in the muscle.Because solid food takes more time to digest and to break down the protein and send it to the muscles, it can be best to take a protein shake immediately following a workout, since protein shakes only take about thirty minutes to reach the muscle after ingestion.we can see the advantage to taking a protein.Whey protein has become a favorite supplement for those seeking to put on muscle and enhance their physiques as well as improve their health. In order to decipher which protein is best for a particular need, typically one would use a specific gauge of some sort to determine which protein to use. I found no side effects after using it for a long time now. and hey dont forget to use my referral code for genuine discounts. Thank you already for using my code buddy. You're amazing. :)

Everything will be great if you workout hard and take Myprotein supplements.Whey protein is produced during the process that sees milk turned into cheese. It is also found naturally in dairy products, eggs, soy and vegetable proteins but none of these compares in quality to whey protein powder. It also scores highly in providing the branched chain amino acids that are important in the building and retention of muscle.Whey protein is highly favored by bodybuilders because it provides the necessary building blocks to produce the amino acids that the body uses to build lean muscle tissue. Many studies have shown that whey protein contains the perfect combination of amino acids, in just the right concentration for optimal performance in the body. It is also thought that whey protein has a role as an anti-oxidant and immune system builder.It is best taken in powder form mixed in juice or milk, spread throughout the day to maintain a positive nitrogen balance. Serious bodybuilders often consume up to one hundred fifty grams each day but as a rule of thumb, daily protein intake for active trainers can be calculated by taking your weight in pounds and multiplying by one or two. But remember, you need to work out how much protein is taken from food and other sources, and then spread the remaining whey protein balance over the day.Whey protein is a relatively safe supplement but no more than thirty grams of protein should be taken at one sitting as excessive single doses could overload the liver. The safety of whey protein has been well documented in many scientific studies and there is clear proof that taken consistently, coupled with regular exercise, it will result in meaningful muscle gain.

Supplements which never dissatisfied their customers.MyProtein supplements helps our each muscles to grow and transform. Daily intake of protein help in reducing fat from our body. Today we will discuss about benefits of protein in our body.Protein is in the spotlight these days, with articles touting diets high in protein and advertisements for protein powders in the media. Protein is, of course, an important building block in the body, but it is not the only building block. And furthermore, protein is made up of a variety of substances, with the result that not all protein sources are equal in value. Here are some of the facts about proteins Protein is essential to a healthy heart and a healthy body; animal sources of protein including eggs are better for you nutritionally since they contain all of the essential amino acids; as with most nutrients and vitamins, both too much and too little protein have detrimental effects on the body; and, protein cannot be stocked up like fat but must be eaten daily. Protein is the basic nutrient and plays an essential role in carrying cholesterol and preventing heart disease.The human body in its complexity needs dozens of nutritive substances. The one that stands before all others is protein, or proteins, since there is not one but hundreds of kinds of protein. Here’s what protein contributes We are literally made of protein from our bones to our muscles, arteries and veins, skin, hair, and fingernails. Our heart, brain, liver, kidneys, and lungs are built of tissue made of proteins.Proteins help carry the oxygen that reddens our blood.In the form of enzymes, proteins digest our food, synthesize essential substances, and break down waste products for elimination.When fat and carbohydrates are insufficient, proteins produce the energy we need for life.Proteins in combination with a substance called sterols form hormones, which regulate the delicate chemical changes that constantly take place within the body. The chromosomes, which pass on our characteristics to our children, include protein in their structure.Protein is needed to carry fat and cholesterol throughout the body.

My protein supplements are the solution of every problem which our body need to recover. No other supplements can beat its results.Protein deficiency and malnutrition (PEM) can lead to variety of ailments including mental retardation and kwashiorkor. Symptoms of kwashiorkor include apathy, diarrhea, inactivity, failure to grow, flaky skin, fatty liver, and edema of the belly and legs. This edema is explained by the action of lipoxygenase on arachidonic acid to form leukotrienes and the normal functioning of proteins in fluid balance and lipoprotein transport.PEM is fairly common worldwide in both children and adults and accounts for six million deaths annually. In the industrialized world, PEM is predominantly seen in hospitals, is associated with disease, or is often found in the elderly. If my review is helpful then you can use mu referral code above.
