    Beta alanine Side effects!?!


    So i have been taking Axis Labs hemodraulix and wanted to add some creatine and beta alanine to my pre w/o supps. So in addition to my 6caps hemodraulix i take 1800mg beta alanine and 5g DiCreatine Malate. Lately i have been getting a weird tingling sensation in my face and hands about 5-10min after i take these supps. But it goes away after about 15min or once i start working out. Anyone know whats up?

    I'm not really current with my beta-alanine knowledge but I'm thinking that's just the initial onset of the beta alanine entering the bloodstream... Kinda like a niacin rush?

    And how's that DiCreatine Malate going for you? I just bought some of that in bulk and i was curious about how effective it is

    Its great, already noticing some strength gains, been runnin it for about a week so far. And i thought maybe it was kinda like the niacin rush deal but wanted to make sure. If anyone else knows feel free to chime in . Time to go to the gym though !!

    the tingling effect is just the beta alanine hitting your blood stream and it is similar to taking niacin. You get used to it after while.

    There's definitely variability in the amount of tingling you experience. Some forum members are so sensitive they have to stay away from BA completely.

    About 5min after I take my pre-work drink I get like crazy hyper/tingly and scrtching my neck like a junky. But my workout energy is insane. I workout with my cousin who does protein only and he thinks I'm insane with amount of energy that I have. I Literally have to make myself stop lifting.

    That's my first experience with BA... I might have to up the dosage now.

    Beta Alanine is an effective sup. Usualy the results are best experienced after 3 weeks+ of use. You will most likely notice the biggest difference in the form of endurance. The tingles are normal, and aren't experienced by everyone. It's called paresthesia (which is really a broad term and has many different causes and types). I get it the most in my lips when drinking BA out of a cup or glass, but don't experience it so much with the shaker cups I use now.
    I also think it either diminishes after a while, or at least you get used to it and don't notice it as much.

    I take 3 grams pre w/o, and also consume about 2 grams throughout the day in a BCAA cocktail.
    The amount you're taking has been shown to be effective. Some people take more, but I haven't really seen any studies conducted with anything but 3 and 4 gram doses.

    Even though I have been taking purple wraath for quite a while now *2 scoops pre/intra* I still feel a little bit of the tingle in my lips when i take jacked. If i space out picking my nose or something instead of lifting i really feel it around my eyes and tips of ears, but if i jump right in and throw weight the whole time, i never feel it, just good energy. I use it as a red flag, if i feel it, im slacking off...
