    Beta-Alanine is great IMO. I have used it in the past with great results. I don't know exactly what you mean by stim. It doesn't give you an imediate energy rush or power boost. If that is what you are talking about. Instead it is more like a slow steady gain of strength and endurance over a month or so long period. Beta-Alanine raises the carnosine levels in your body but you have to take it for a couple of weeks to get the full effect.

    It also gives you the tingles(tingling sensation all over your body). At first, for me, it was a little unconfortable. However you really get used to it and come to enjoy it. I did notice some great gains while on the beta.

    Would recommend.

    If you are going to get some I would look into buying it in bulk. It is wayyyy cheaper. You can get 100grams here at nutraplanet for 10 bucks. really hard to beat. I just ordered some the other day. I can't wait for it to get here.

    I had great results at 4 grams a day. 2grams preworkout and 2grams post workout.

    I LOVE BA....its great stuff. Increased strength, endurance, and some increase in pumps are some attributes you can gain from BA.

    That's exactly how I dose it and it works great. I agree on buying bulk, as well. It can get expensive otherwise and you do have to take it for awhile to maximize its effectiveness.

    Yeah, I love the tingles. It makes me feel like some comic book superhero and I have this extra "energy" that I'm barely able to contain in my skin, lol. I visualize lots of weird things...

    It's somewhat similar to a niacin flush...but different.

    Adding BA in def. has been a huge benefit, like everyone else said the tingles for some reason, seem to add a boost and give a somewhat euphoric feeling.

    I'll be using Incarnate for my next cycle, as i've had some shoulder issues, hopefully the cissus in there will help a bit and also give me the BA dosing I like.

    beta alinine is one of the few supplement of its type that actually lives up to the hype
    for me it increased my strength and allowed me to bang out way more reps causing my strength to increase more - and you learn to love the tingles

    Im finishing up my first bottle of Incarnate. Took about 3 weeks before I started noticing a definite increase in strength and endurance. Takes a while but def works. I never really felt any tingling like some people. Glad I picked up an extra bottle!

    I'm also using poseidon & don't feel much of anything from that either. Would of thought taking it with Incarnate would give me some type of tingling but guess I lucked out?

    The paresthesia effect induced by beta-alanine is hit or miss. Comse people experience it from a 1g dose while others can use 5g and feel nothing. It also tends to fade with time and you can also minimize it by taking ba with meals. Timing of ba dose also does not appear to be that important so there isn't much of a reason to take it pre or post workout as other times should be just as effective.

    Some BA out there is "time released." This usually eliminates the tingle. Also, some people just don't get the tingle, and the intensity of the tingle diminishes over time.

    I throw all my bulk supps into my pre and post WO shakes so thats probably why I don't get the tingle.

    Think the only, thing that's ever bugged me about BA is when I added some bulk into a pre w/o mix i made up and it made my lips tingle a bit haha.
