I just received my electronic version of Muscular Development( pg190) and saw another one of our articles published. They actually forgot Sebastian's name on the article this time, as Anssi and Sebastian collaborated on this write-up..lol But none the less, Sebastian wrote the section and Anssi wrote the section.
This article is a head on comparison with creatine, showing their similarities and differences. As you all know, consistently gets touted as the next creatine for obvious reasons.
The point of this article was to show why it is often touted this way, but at the same time, also explain how this statement can be misleading if the details are not fully understood. Hopefully the intention of this article is understood and the reader realizes that beta-alanine DOES NOT replace creatine. At the same time getting the point across, that they do share many parallels, which brings about the comparison.
You all know I love beta-alanine, but I also have huge respect for creatine and do not want beta-alanine to be known as a replacement to creatine. Not only would it be inaccurate to market beta-alanine this way, it could also stop people from properly understanding how beta-alanine works and how different it is from creatine!
Creatine is one of my all time favorite supplements and NOTHING can ever replace it. I believe both creatine and beta-alanine to be the two most effective ergogenic aids in sports nutrition by FAR.
