Beta Alanine Powder Reviews
Beta Alanine Powder is a Beta-Alanine Product manufactured by Optimum. It helps increase carnosine levels, which helps buffer lactic acid and increase muscle endurance by decreasing the 'burn' during exercise. This increse in endurance can translate to increased muscle mass and strength.
IntroductionWhat is going on guys? Just want to make a note that there was another overlap with a beta-alanine product, BUT my run with that particular product ended March 11th which gave me more than enough time to fairly use this product and give honest feedback. Now, the tingly sensation that every newbie feels when they take their first supplement containing beta-alanine is an unforgettable one. I LOVE this sensation and all the other great things that beta-alanine can do for the everyday 'gym bro.'As always, I'd like to thank Clipper and SR for making this review possible. Let's dive right in!

Their addition of things like histidine and other phosphates are placed in this supplement to help keep hydrogen ion levels low because, in theory, as hydrogen ions are produced within the muscles fatigue levels increase. One of the possible causes of fatigue is due to the fact that acidity levels in the muscles are increasing. Beta-alanine is renown for its endurance benefits in the fitness industry and it's unique ability to help you resist fatigue.
Taste/Mixability/DosingTaste: This is an unflavored powder that will give you a bitter aftertaste if you do not mix it in with some other flavor to mask it. I would highly recommend mixing it with something else because the taste is very unpleasant.
Mixibility: It mixes into 8 ounces of water very easily with a few good shakes of a blender bottle. I never hd any issues mixing this product.
Dosage: I used more than 40 servings before reviewing this product. The clinical dose of beta-alanine is 3.2g, so I took two (1.6g) servings of this product every day. I found this to be the best formula for success because at least for me personally any dose greater than 4g can cause some unpleasant side effects like lightheadedness and excessive sweating from a minimal work load.
