BSN N.O. Xplode question

Always used various supplements, pre workouts, test booster, etc

I also know a ton of people who have used NO Xplode and love it. My question is. Has anyone had the "tingling" sensation that BSN claims is a common reaction to this? The recommended dose is 2-3 scoops. I'm currently only taking 1... My skin felt like it was in fire the first day I used it. Subsided in after about an hour and had a great lift. Tho until then I was contemplating going to the hospital even. Very uncomfortable even pain tingling. Had anyone else experienced this?

I am also taking Animal Stak with it and a generic whey and generic creatine

Directions say to take on an empty stomach. Tho I think it's too many amino aids for no food. Any opinions??

My opinion is to get a better pre-workout. I've had all those symptoms from when I tried it, it's common with many pre-workouts. There are so many better ones out there though.

Yes it's from the beta alanine and is 110% completely normal. However no explode is the Honda civic of the car world. Cheap and not good.

I always found jack3d was the least "symptom" producing for myself.. but they banned it here in Canada and I haven't taken a pre-workout supp since

I am allergic for caffeine. My whole body was messed up after taking No Xplode. Since then I stick to my whey and weight gainer.

Ewww I couldn't make it through an entire day with no caffeine.

And yeah I've already ordered my next cycle of Jack3d

Tho actually ate about one cup of mash potatoes (left over thanksgiving food ) the other day probably about 30 minutes before consuming the NOXplode. Had no tingling or anything the entire time tho amazing energy... like I inclined pressed what I normally do on flat bench felt pretty beastly haha

Anyone tried another different Test Boosters? I've only used animal and its seemed to work good. Hesitant to try new stuff because I don't want to mess up my natural test levels

Usually the beta alanine isn't as apparent on a full, or half full stomach.

Why are you using Test Boosters, just curious?

To be honest, I'm taking them more out of curiosity than anything. Seems with any test booster all the reviews are 50/50 good/bad. Same as with NOX, had several friends that liked it more than over boosters they've tried. Wanted to try it a few times to see if I had any significant gains... Undecided so far but I'm leaning more towards the "waste of money side". Prolly wont be using any after I finish what's left of this bottle

I've found C4 by cellulor to be a good pre workout and I've tried most of the other popular ones. Hit or miss with most but C4 is pretty constant.
