What exactly is beat-alanine and what will it do for me? A friend of mine starting taking it and he said that his skin became flushed and that he felt like he was tingling. Is this normal when you take it?

Theres tons of literature out there. Maybe somebody will link you something. If not, hit google, you can find out a lot with a little research. I've used it and do not like it. All it did was make me tingle and, in combination with powdered arginine and intense cardio, it made my heart race...

Yes, you will get some flushing and tingling.

Here's an article I wrote on BA and creatine. Hope it helps:

The tingling is normal. It's called parathesia. Some like it, some don't.

Read BTB's article. All your answers right there.

If you only take a gram at a time the tingling is present, but only lasts an extremely short time and is not really even that noticiable.

I myself dont care for the tingle either. It just bugs me during my workout and i dont seem to respond to it as good as others do.
