What is Beta Alanine?
Beta Alanine has become one of the most heavily researched supplements within sports science in recent times. A non-essential amino acid, Beta Alanine has been shown in studies to help form the compound carnosine within the muscles which in turn can help buffer lactic acid, reduce the onset of fatigue and increase exercise intensity and duration. Proving so successful in experiments, Beta Alanine has now become one of the most popular performance enhancing supplements in sport today and specifically Beta Alanine from The Protein Works™ is sourced from an accredited TPW™ supplier and is the highest possible grade available.
What are the Benefits of Beta Alanine?
Backed by credible research, Beta Alanine is a great addition to any athletes supplement routine and is one of few supplements on the market proven to enhance performance when taken solely on its own. But it’s also become a very popular active ingredient in most preworkout formulas, including The Protein Works™ best-selling Raze™ Preworkout.
How Do You Take Beta Alanine?
Also because Beta Alanine improves performance in a completely different way to most other aminos, it works very well when taken with other supplements. For example many sports scientists recommend strength athletes take Beta Alanine with Creatine Monohydrate to enhance muscle power and size. Whereas a Beta Alanine and Citrulline Malate has become the recommended supplement blend by endurance experts.

Mix it in pre workout shake youll
Be glad you did
5 stars for me
the product mixes well, doesn't have much if any taste that I can notice but those tingles are amazing!
Used it for two sessions now and without a doubt you get a buzz from it, helps increasing your energy and performance. I also feel good after finishing a session instead of weak/fatigued. And there's no 'come down' afterwards like many products which are full of caffeine.
5 stars for this.
Noticed immediate benefits from my first session.
Delays the feeling of lactic acid build-up and allows you to squeeze out that essential extra couple of reps.
The first couple times you take it, you'll notice a bit of tingling in your skin about 10 mins before your session, but it's nothing to worry about and soon goes away when you start training.
No bad side-affects to report.
Going to stack it with creatine next but 10/10 for me
