    I love it.

    Been off it for awhile, but I used to take 3.5g pre workout. Definitely felt like it helped add 1-2 reps on sets and recovery time between sets.

    Saw benefits with sprints/interval training. Was able to push myself harder/farther due to feeling like I don't tire as soon and recover more quickly.


    Studies show it converts to carnosine and then buffers the accumulating hydrogen ions in the muscle, meaning it delays fatigue.

    just started taking beta alanine yesterday

    past few days i had literally been falling asleep at the gym because im cutting and only getting 1500 calories, i felt GREAT in the gym.

    i know it was only one day but hopefully my energy was a result of the beta-alanine and that I will experience that again today

    :werd: It subsided to a slight tingle after a couple days. I forgot Jack3d had beta-alanine in it, and I would take it before I left for the gym and wonder why the fuck I was so itchy :rofl:

    Not impressed with it as a sup. Basically just helps as a PH buffer from what I've read.
