    I have no idea, but my guess would be water because I don't see how it would increase blood flow or glycogen storage.

    Actually Beta-Alanine and creatine work very differently, though some of their outcomes are similar(strength, body mass, power, muscular endurance).

    Beta-Alanine DO NOT cause water retention like creatine does, which is just one of the reasons why athletes love using Beta-alanine.

    We just had a study done on our Beta-Alanine product IntraXCell with college wrestlers during their season. Their weights did NOT change.ATHLETIC EDGE NUTRITION Announces Beta-Alanine(IntraXCell) STUDY!

    Other BA studies have verified the same thing.

    The fuller pumped MOA comes from Beta-Alanine's ability to boost NO, not through cell vollumizing like creatine.
