    Question NP bulk beta alanine BAD BATCH?


    i just opened up my batch this morning of 1 kilo beta alanine by NP and noticed something was off. This batch was a lot different then my last two batches ive gone through. I didnt think much of it until i tried using it this morning and noticed this one i opened up has a different taste, smell and texture then from my previous ones. In addition, i did not get the BA tingles from it either. my previous two batches looked more "crystalized" where my current one is very fine like glutatmine or BCAA. anyone had this experience?

    I believe the mesh size is different on this last batch from what I've heard. Should still be the same Beta Alanine

    Could be, really. I've had an item in Bulk that wasn't what it was supposed to be.
    I'm interested in hearing from NP on this because I have an unopened kilo of BA at home.

    you should take a high dose like a tablespoon to see if you get the tingles if you dont get them taking that high amount then probably its not BA and its something else.

    Yeah, that wouldn't be too good to take a high dose of.
    Lord knows I still have enough 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine around...

    *UPDATE*

    so this morning i wanted to justify if it's me or the quality of the beta alanine i received. i did 4g (1 tsp) 30 min preworkout, then added another 4g (1 tsp) into my intra-workout drink. sadly i didnt get any feedback from the beta alanine. no tingles, nothing.

    now my concern is im out 40 bucks on a kilo of beta alanine. most likely i will have to order another one. my problem is im concerned if i order another, how do i know if i'll receive good or poor quality again? i feel like im almost "gambling" by making another purchase. ive never had this experience before with my bulk products since i first started purchasing from nutraplanet in october of 2008.

    Someone mentioned in my thread on NP... that because the way this one is, it takes longer to breakdown in your system, so therefore you don't get the instant tingles...

    Problem is, that's how i felt it working, and now im unsure if it is?

    But they say It's legit.. im sure they looked into it?

    I havent seen that thread... how is beta alanine different than beta alanine. The breakdown should be the exact same unless a type of ester was attached or something of the sorts.

    Who told you that? It was just put through a different mesh stevoph said. That's like saying powdered sugar works differently than regular sugar.

    Incorrect wording..
    LOL..

    I forgot what he said, but i was describing how this batch looked different to the old batch and he mentioned something along the lines of...I FORGOT but it's in the NP section...

    I didn't mean it was like BETA or ALPHA.. taking longer to break down in your system.. Its just not as strong.
