    beta alanine or wms


    I'm very aware of the benefits of both, but can only afford one for the time being so which one should I go with?

    I would probably go with beta alanine because you can eat some good carbs in oatmeal after a workout, and the tingling feeling for beta alanine is
    I just eat oat meal or a whole grain cereal after working out and it seems to do quite well for me. I will be trying a carb supp soon though, but I can't give any feedback on that yet...
    if you can't get those carbs in post workout, then I would think WMS would be more beneficial, because what you eat is most important.

    Beta Alanine...no question about it.

    /You can't afford the small beta alanine and small WMS? You should be able to get both for $20.

    I've been taking Nutraplanets bulk Beta Alanine for the last month. One of the best purchases I've made. Its also 4 bucks cheaper than Primaforce. I've never tried Primaforce so I can't comment on it but Nutraplanets Beta Alanine is the real deal. I will be buying the kilo size next time around.

    Either way just get the Beta-Alanine. I don't know the Nutraplanet scoops size, but for me a tub of Primaforce BA last for 3-4 months depending on my doseage

    It depends on what effects you are after and what your training and goals are. You are using good carb sources but I guess it would depend on how you react to them. I've seen one guy at my gym cut quite a bit just from using wms in lieu or dex or oats.

    I think the benefits of supplementing with BA outweigh that of WMS. The ease of digestion is nice, but other than that I am not aware of any other benefits of WMS.

    BA gets my vote! (no bias)

    Beta-Alanine has performance enhancing effects. WM is a convenient version of oatmeal.

    BA gets my vote everytime.

    (don't get me wrong, I have two buckets of WM myself, but if you could only afford one, BA is the bigger bang for your buck)
