I consumed a ProSlam protein vial today because I was out and about so popped into the health store for a quick protein pulse injection. This supplement is made with 27g protein from hydrolysed whey and hydrolysed casein. It also contains 1.5g of beta alanine.
I would estimate that within 10 mins I experienced the tingling sensation all over my body. In contrast, 5 hours later I took three 750mg beta alanine tabs 45 mins before my training session and didn’t experience the same tingle.
I’m only guessing but perhaps a faster mode of delivery, e.g. in powder/liquid form, is more optimum? Still love it for workouts. Almost a wonder supplement in my opinion. ProSlam is awesome in that regard but at 3.29 (UK pounds) per vial it is damn expensive so I’ll stick to the tablet form.
I will probably buy the powder version when the tabs are finished and add 3-5g to my Workout Fuel for the ultimate pre-workout cocktail.[/quote]
I use powder version, I just cap it myself to make it easier to manage the dosage timing.
The tingling is a result of a niacin flush to my understanding. That’s why Biotest’s time released doesn’t cause the feeling so much, it doesn’t hit you all at once preventing a big flush.
I’d wager your stomach was more empty when you had the vial versus preworkout. If I have something in my stomach I don’t feel the flush much, but if I’m not thinking and pop a couple caps of beta without anything in my stomach, I become so itchy it’s painful.
