    Just looking at the back of a BSN Volumaize sample pack, brings attention to

    A. Phenylketonurics: contains phenylalanine
    B. Hyper Beta-Alaninemia: Contains Beta-Alanine.


    so I look up Hyper Beta Alaninemia in a google search which brings me here.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/dispomim.cgi?id=237400
    "...Beta-alanine is a central nervous system depressant..."


    Well, those who take pre-workout stim drinks like Jacked, N.O Xplode, or Superpump250 for instance.

    they have caffeine a Central Nervous Stimulant

    and beta alanine, which is claimed as a beta alanine depressant.






    what effects would having two contradicting substances have on the body?

    i dunno, maybe he IL'ed me, i never see him post.

    I don't believe its BS. When i take Jacked, i feel it makes a difference, but i've never taken BA alone to test its lactic acid buffering. I'd have to take it before running and see how fast i could do a mile and a half or something.

    me too, dunno if that's an indication of it working or doing what it's supposed to do. i'm pretty sure it works tingle or not. but i'm wondering what the effects of taking a CNS stimulant and CNS depressant at the same time have on the body.


    like, alcohol and redbull. upper and downer. usually not a good mix.

    every BA study I've ever read says the only benifit is from increased ability to buffer PH. So if you're doing extended anaerobic exercise it works well.

    Just like sodium bicarbonate loading. One of me TEXTBOOKS said that sodium bicarbonate loading can result in "explosive diarrhea" :rofl: I didn't know that was a medical term

    That's interesting.... I mix it with my superpump -- maybe I should leave the BA out for a couple weeks and see.

    yeah the tingle is nothing more than an annoyance. GABA & Niacin both have the same effect on me.
