The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Allergic reaction to Results/Axcel?

    Allergic reaction to Results/Axcel?
    So, just got my order in for results and axcel. First time I've taken either of them. Took them at around 11:00 am this morning with breakfast. I took one scoop of results with a glass of water, and I took only a single axcel since I had never used a thermogenic/stim supplement before. About a half hour later while I was getting dressed, I started itching.. EVERYWHERE. Arms, legs, back, chest, etc. This persisted about 3 hours or so and eventually tapered off.

    Anyone have a reaction like this on either product? Since I took both at once I am not sure which caused it, or if either of them caused it. My guess would be axcel, since I've taken plain creatine monohydrate before and had no issue, and I doubt I'm allergic to dextrose if it was in fact an allergic reaction.

    If your skin had a tingling/flush feeling that's normal which I'm sure made you itchy. It's the beta-alanine in the RESULTS.

    Yep, that is called paresthesia and it is a harmless side effect of Beta-Alanine in doses of much over 800 mg. I very much doubt it was the AXCEL, but you can verify tomorrow by skipping it and just taking RESULTS.

    FYI, the paresthesia will subside a bit with time and use.

    Hey Chris. I was about to email you about this. I have been experience the itchy skin with the latest Results order (Blue Raspberry), but do not remember feeling it with Tropical Punch.

    Well, it should have occurred with both. It is VERY likely parathesia from the Beta-Alanine. Totally harmless.

    I normally took Tropical Punch with some Nitrean, so maybe it blunted the effect and was not as noticeable. Thanks for the response.

    Yup, def the Beta alanine!! I take it by itself and it has always had that effect but has def become less noticable over time.

    When I take my RESULTS I take Maximus immediately after on workout days and never notice the tingling. Days I just take RESULTS I noticed the tingling for the first two weeks or so then now nothing.
