I can’t answer your question, but I can say I’ve never experienced paresthesia with Surge Workout Fuel although I have with other non-time-release Beta alanine products.
From what I’ve read, beta alanine generally causes parathesia (depending on individual tolerances) at dosages over 10 mg/kg (equivalent to 1 gram of beta alanine for an individual weighing 220 pounds or 100kg). Now the Supplement Facts label on the Surge Workout Fuel reads:
7.2g of MAG-10 Amino Primer:
Citrulline Malate, L-Leucine, Beta Alanine
An effective dose of beta alanine is roughly 6 grams per day. As the label on Surge Workout Fuel does not expressely state the form or dose of beta alanine in the product, I can only assume that it’s either;
A) Too low of a dose of beta alanine to be close to effective (1 gram or less), & the standard non time released form,
B) Some fancy form of sustained release beta alanine that they have chosen not to disclose on the package.
I’d have to say that it’s most likely that the amount of beta alanine in the product is less than 1 gram as I’ve experienced parathesia from beta alanine before, but not from Surge Workout fuel.
I know Biotest products are designed to be taken together, but IMO the package should read that “To experience the full effects of beta alanine and for optimal results, take concurrently with Beta-7.”
Based off the effect I get from Surge Workout Fuel, I’d bet that it has far more Beta alanine than what you’ve proposed.
I’ve experiment with quite a few different Beta alanine products before settling on Beta-7, and one of the effects I get from Surge Workout Fuel feels identical.
I guess you could experiment with combining Surge Workout Fuel with Beta-7 and see if you get an even better effect.[/quote]
Yeah I do, and I get a much better result. IMO though, each scoop of Surge Workout Fuel has less than 2 grams, prob more like 1 gram of beta alanine…
I’m sure the citrulline malate has a huge effect on the performance results.
The whole reason for this post is that there is no form of non-capsule time released beta alanine on the market. All other forms cause parathesia from personal experience. Therefore the amount in Surge Workout Fuel must be around a gram.
