Beta Alanine

Beta Alanine
Beta Alanine is a naturally occurring amino acid and is the building block of carnosine, a molecule that helps buffer acid in muscles, increasing physical performance.

 

What it does

  • Buffers and removes lactic acid (waste product) from inside the muscle.

This helps you

  •  Work at a higher intensity for a longer period of time.
  • Improve performance

 

During high intensity exercise large amounts of hydrogen ions build up within the muscle that need to be removed if performance levels are to be sustained.

 

The build up of Hydrogen ions also known as ‘lactic acid’ causes the muscles to feel tight or stiff, creates an uncomfortable burning sensation and negatively affects the ability of your muscles to contract. This reduces the level to which you can push your body in order to achieve the desired physical outcome.

 

Research has shown that using beta alanine as a supplement on a daily basis significantly improves performance in both intensity and endurance sports.
