I did a google search and some of what I immediately came up with was some people saying they think they associate beta alanine with heart palpitations, and a medical related site that indicated there was no known correlation.
The story with me is that I read over New Year’s that most people aren’t taking enough beta alanine, the amounts in preworkouts are not enough to do much good. I then bought a free standing supply of it and decided that I would supplement my preworkout such that I was getting about a teaspoon each day, 3.2g. Of course I would take it on non workout days as well, totaling the same amount.
With no other factors different, I am taking the same other preworkouts in the same doses, the same amount of caffeine each day, and creatine monohydrate. I have noticed heart palpitations since the beginning of January.
I am collecting experience from people to confirm the likelihood of what I am thinking. If so, how scared should I be?
