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.

I find this product to be an effective nutritional supplement for aiding the transportation of fat to be burned as an energy source when you are in a calorie deficit and it helps to target the stubborn fat stores around the abs, upper thighs and hips of love handles. These areas are normally the last to go and require great dedication, discipline and patience to get rid of, this product works well I feel to speed up progress but does take a week or two to kick in and build up in your system. Great fat burning product use discount code for flat 25% off.

Energy Boosting Product, Increases Endurance Once Fully Saturated

Beta alanine is a great amino acid for increasing muscle endurance allowing for more reps to be achieved on many of the main lifts, i can easily perform 2-4 more reps with the same weight for my front squats, Romanian dead-lifts and barbell as well as dumbbell bench press. It does take time to build up though and i recommend you give it at-least 2-3 weeks to fully saturate at a dose of 5-10g per day depending on body weight, it can cause an odd burning / tingling sensation, this is perfectly normal and not in any way harmful. I find the tingling does ease once saturated which makes it more tolerable to use this product. Try it out for yourself and see how it works to help you achieve greater endurance, if you look up clinical trials it is scientifically proven to increase time before muscular fatigue so is no gimmick snake oil product and does provide benefits.

Not sure of effectiveness yet as only tried it just over a week. Slight tingle if you use too much. Haven't seen any benefits yet but early yet. Mixes easily.

3-5g after working out is plenty for me and have made significant strength and muscle size gains since using it. Advise taking it alongside food due to minimise the tingling effect beta alanine causes. Will be taking everyday now for sure.

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!

My first review on the site, so please judge it accordingly. I've ordered several supplements from Myprotein, one of them was beta alanine. My regime contains a morning hiit and a resistance training late afternoon. Before the hiit training i take a serving of Mypre (which contains 1,5g of beta alanine). As for the resistance workout i take 3 grams (0.105 oz) along with cee as a pre-workout. Definetly take it with creatine (the type of it should be according to your preference), as the two work in synergy. The main reason to take it is to boost the carnosine levels in your muscles, which in turn slowes down the hydrogen ion buildup. This is important becase these ions limit the work you could accomplish through your training. It should be consumed in phases ( buildup phase and maintenance phase). The only side effect i've experienced is the tingling sensation along my face. It urges you to train so it works as intended. Definetly worth the price, if you need a good pre-workout supplement.

Useful in the right circumstances

Overall:

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.

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.

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!

Taken 0.8g four times a day for 6 weeks. Can see the difference in ability to sustain effort from results taken during PT sessions. Very mild pins and needles effect 15 minutes after taking but worth it for the difference in performance.
