Default On board with Beta-Alanine?

All,

I noticed on the "Top 5 Supplements" thread that no one mentioned Beta-Alanine.

I have seen some interesting literature on it, but don't know anyone who has tried it. I know it has some challenges given the dosage frequency that is required, but wanted to see if anyone had any personal experiences or general thoughts to share.

Some food for thought on this topic:

Effects of twenty-eight days of beta-alanine and creatine monohydrate supplementation on the physical working capacity at neuromuscular fatigue threshold.

Effect of creatine and beta-alanine supplementation on performance and endocrine responses in strength/power athletes.

Effects of beta-alanine supplementation on the onset of neuromuscular fatigue and ventilatory threshold in women.

I'm probably missing the point here, however doesn't the second study just show that creatine works and that it still works with beta-alanine?

I believe that the group that was given beta-alanine and creatine did better than just the creatine group.

Default Beta-Alanine Presentation

Here is a link to Dr. Stout's presentation that he gave at the 2006 Arnold Classic. Pretty interesting stuff - he discusses the science behind how Beta-Alanine may help delay fatigue. He also discusses the study he did with Creatine vs. Creatine + Beta-Alanine and prior research on the supplement.
