    It could be genetic; some guys are hyper-responsive. How much are you dosing? If 2g isn't doing it, try 4g empty-stomach to test out your theory.

    most ive done was ~3
    will try though, probably gonna get some generic beta alanine
    if i dont get the tingling sensation, does that necessarily mean the recovery aspect of the beta alanine isn't working either?

    Honestly I don't feel it all the time and usually only when in the morning on a complete empty stomach...but it always gave me great benefits from taking it so I do not think feeling the tingles correlates with it being effective...thats just my 2cents tho

    Currently I take 1.6 grams when I wake up. 3.2g are in Intrabolic that I take while I lift. Then another 1.6g with my last meal of the day. I have used whiteflood before and I never felt the tingle from it, but taking some beta alanine at other times plus the WF went pretty well for me

    I would say just go with bulk NP Beta-Alanine, the 500g container is great value. It's not so much a tolerance to the beta-alanine you're noticing, as much as you've saturated you've muscle carnitine levels.

    Hypertropx has that warning to keep them safe from legal issues, as Yohimbine can have potentially dangerous side effects if overdosed since it is a potent alpha-2 antagonist.

    It gives me the willys so bad, I had to start using Molecular's Peak Beta. It is time released and IMO, gives a better overall result.

    It is time released. Released over time, the idea is it does not give you the tingle, which really makes my skin crawl. The MN Peak Beta does not do this and gives me great results.

    Its a time released version that should keep the tingles from occurring(some people hate them). I should have some on the way eventually, but I haven't used it yet so I do not know how effective it is from a personal standpoint.
