    Beta Alanine Primaforce vs. Nutraplanet


    Has anyone who has taken both these noticed a difference between the 2. Are they made by the same manufacturer? I have been taking 4-6 grams of BA for about 6 months and do not feel tingles. I never did. I also tried IntraXcell and did not feel tingles.

    Is there any difference in the Beta Alanine one would buy from Primaforce compared to the Beta Alanine with the Nutraplanet label.

    Between those two brands, I highly doubt it.

    Beta-Alanine is beta alanine...it has a certain structure and is assayed for that structure. Two different suppliers that send 500kg of Beta Alanine with an assay of 98% are sending you pretty much identical stuff.

    I know Prima Force and Nutraplanet both use the highest quality materials available.

    Do you know if they receive the Beta Alanine from two different suppliers. Can they be the same supplier and just different labels? I agree both are great companies so I am thinking I will save a few dollars and buy the NP Beta Alanine.

    When I was a part of Prima Force/Scivation, we put into place a network of reliable suppliers. I can't say with 100% certainty that they are EXACTLY the same supplier, but I would guess they are.

    I just finished my first tub of purple wraath and I when I started drinking at the beginning of my workouts i wouldn't notice a BA effect, but when I started sipping thirty minutes prior to workout I got the tingle.

    The first time I got the tingle I thought it was goosebumps but then I realized the heat was on and I was sweating

    endurance actually tripled on cardio only days

    Hasn't really changed on cardio after my workouts but I work myself to death on my workouts and the fact that I have energy to run after is good enough for me

    on normal cardio days its honestly like you're not really running. Your heart beats faster and then you look down at the treadmill and it says you've going for 40 minutes... it's an incredible feeling.


    Can't really attribute this to beta alanine, as I take a preworkout supplement too, but it definitely helps i'm sure.
