The Itch

The Itch

If you've dabbled in the world of pre-workout supplements, chances are you've experienced that crazy sensation known as the "itch" or "tingle." Some people love it, while others don’t really understand what’s happening. But let us tell you, that itch is actually a good sign! It means your pre-workout contains Beta-Alanine, one of the most highly effective ingredients out there for boosting performance and fighting muscle fatigue.*

What exactly is Beta-Alanine?

Unlike other amino acids in your body, Beta-Alanine doesn't just help with protein synthesis. It does something even cooler. When it joins forces with Histidine, it forms a powerful tag team called Carnosine. And let me tell you, Carnosine is a game-changer for muscular endurance, especially during those intense, balls-to-the-wall workouts.*

Think about it. When you hit the gym for those brutal workouts that require serious intensity, the Beta-Alanine has got your back. It delays muscle fatigue and lets you squeeze out those extra reps and keep crushing it during those hardcore gym sessions.*

That's why Beta-Alanine has become a must-have ingredient in pre-workout formulas for hardcore users. It's been studied to death and proven to help achieve goals, whether you’re setting new PRs, sprinting like Usain Bolt, or packing on muscle by pushing yourselves to the limit.*

Why does it cause a tingling sensation?

First things first, this stuff has been proven to be safe as hell. But yeah, there's a catch – at higher doses, you might experience some crazy itchiness. Don't freak out, though. It's called paresthesia, and it's harmless AF.

You know that weird tingly feeling you get when your arm or leg falls asleep? Well, paresthesia is kinda like that. It's just a funky sensation, nothing to be concerned about. As your body breaks down the Beta-Alanine in your pre-workout, the tingling will fade away on its own.*

>So, don't let a little itch stop you from getting those gains. Embrace the tingle, push through it, and soon enough, you'll be reaping the benefits* of the Beta-Alanine without a care in the world. But if that tingly sensation is throwing you off, don't worry. We’ve got your back with a couple of strategies to make it more manageable.

Start With Half a Scoop: 
The Shadow!®
      Pre-workout and
The Curse!®
      both have different amounts of Beta-Alanine.
The Shadow!®
      Pre-workout packs 1.6g of Beta-Alanine, while
The Curse!®
    has a slightly lower dose. If you're new to pre-workouts or have had discomfort from the itch before, we recommend starting with half a scoop. That way, you can test your tolerance and ease into it.
Space Out the Dose:
  • Instead of chugging your pre-workout all at once, take it gradually over a 30-minute period before hitting the gym. By sipping it slowly, you won't get hit with the full intensity of the tingles. Plus, with consistent use, most people actually get used to the sensation and start enjoying it.

By tweaking how you take your pre-workout, you can still enjoy the awesome benefits of Beta-Alanine without the overwhelming tingles. Embrace them as a sign that you're fueling your workouts with this ingredient that's been researched and proven to get results*. So go ahead, crush those workouts and make those gains.
