Default Beta-Alanine

Just wanted to know what everyone's opinion on beta-alanine is. I started taking it about 4 months ago and it's my must-have supplement. After getting used to the tingling sensation in your body, my workouts went through the roof and I'm not sure that I could workout without it anymore.

I guess it has potential, but I'm always extremely skeptical of new supplements. Maybe I need to research this one and review it (if I can find independent research).

Yeah, it's an amino acid that helps neutralize your PH so you don't get the lactic acid burn which in turn is supposed to make you train harder. Once you get past the tingling, it's pretty good for intense workouts.

I wouldn't say "neutralize". The boost in muscle carnosine levels buffer the lactic acid more. It increases the lactic acid threshold. You've got the general idea right though.

Yeah I agree, beta alanine seems to give me a little more push time under a load and I actually like the needles and pens effect. Few supps
provide any thing more than profits for the geeks who market them. I got jaded on the whole supp industry back in the 80s and 'am just starting to try a few things now. Not much faith there though. Don't need a crutch where a barbell should be!!
