Is this happening to anyone else? I've just started taking Purple Wrath and everytime I take it, I start to get this tingling feeling all over. It's like when your foot or leg falls asleep. Is this just because I'm not use to the product yet? Or what is this all about.
I have never had a problem with any supplement I've ever taken. Would like some feedback.
says it on the side of the bottle. that is from beta alanine and is normal. use more water and take it over an extended period of time if you dont like the tingles. I love the tingles. it means lifting time
Cool, I thought I was freaking out or something. I like this product and will recommend it to buddies. I'll warn them about the tingles. :clean:
I like to drink my aminos throughout the day and workout at night. Right now I have two scoops mixed in with 24oz of water. Not sure I want to be tingling all day, especially sitting here in my office
Well so far I think with only two scoops in 24 oz of water I do not feel much tingling.
The tingles do not occur all day, just only after you take the drink. I've been on it for a week and they tingles aren't as bad anymore. I think my system is use to it now. I may feel a slight tingling feeling for about 4 seconds or so usually only after about 3-5 minutes after taking the drink.
You pretty much get use to it. I don't really know the science behind it, the guys on the board know more. I just know that I feel more energy during my workout and get a pumped feeling. I like Purple Wrath.
I remember reading the label on the sample pack. I got the tingles like 15min. later. OMG. It felt awesome.
i think it is funny to get them. I get them on my face, which is odd but funny.

I love the tingles. the reason they occur is from the Beta alanine which acts as a neuro stimulator. tingles will diminish with more use and with the dose spread out over more time.
this might be a stupid question, but since it acts as a neuro stimulator, does this mean If I took a nerve pill. Benzo product (xanax, etc...), that it would increase the effects of it. or decrease it.
I found it very easily to get use to the tingles my self. sometimes almost not even feel them as much. Could have been something I ate before hand or something, not sure. But I love em.
Here is a study that discusses the side effects you mentioned possibly from the beta alanine.
Harris RC, Tallon MJ, Dunnet M, Boobis L, Coakley J, Kim HJ, Fallowfield JL, Hill CA, Sale C, Wise JA. The absorption of orally supplied beta-alanine and its effects on muscle
carnosine synthesis in human vastis lateralis. Amino Acids, 30: 279-289, 2006.
Could 10 mg of Nician play a part? At the hospital we use it for vasodilation and our Pt's mention this side effet.
Pharmacokinetics: Niacin and niacinamide are readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Following oral administration, niacin-induced vasodilation occurs within 20 minutes and persists for about 20 to 60 minutes. These effects are manifested by symptoms of flushing, itching and tingling sensations, and are accompanied by an increase in skin temperature
