    Beta Alanine Dosing


    I just recieved my beta-alanine from NP, and I'm wondering how much 2 grams would be in teaspoons. I've been half a teaspoon twice a day.

    I've heard more like 10g/day is needed to really see the benefit, especially with about 10g a day of creatine monohydrate.

    studies show six grams works. actually 4-6 grams. Im taking a break from Ba for three weeks and probally start back at a higher end the first month than decrease to four-six.

    6g I'm sure works. I poorly worded my first post--sorry about that. I should have said 10g is more like the optimal dose. This is where I got my info, from a Charles Poliquin Q&A:

    Q: There's a lot of hoopla out there concerning the new supplement Beta Alanine. Is this stuff worth it?

    A: I think Beta Alanine is great. It allows you to do more reps. I think it's most beneficial when you work in the 4-5RM range. If you're the type of guy who does ten sets of three (10 x 3), then it'll allow you to get that up to tens sets of four or five (10 x 4-5).

    I've used it a lot in the last six months and my athletes are making much faster progress, especially at high doses. Up the dose until you get tingly, then back down a little. I think people should take 10 grams of it a day. Taking 3 grams a day is just far too small of a dose. That dose is like trying to fart against a hurricane.

They suspect that supplementation to increase muscular carnosine levels via beta alanine is FAR more effective when combined with creatine, over using beta alanine alone! (1) "
