- Full Description
BETA ALANINE is a non-essential amino acid that combines with L-Histidine in the body to produce a di-peptide called Carnosine.
Carnosine builds up in skeletal muscle after continual supplementation of Beta-Alanine and buffers H+ (Lactic Acid). NB: Histidine is not the limiting amino acid and supplementation doesn’t improve results.
After 4 weeks of Beta-Alanine supplementation athletes experience greater than 50% increase in Carnosine and after 10 weeks greater than 80% increase.
This allows for increased additional repetitions and improved athletic performance.
BETA ALANINE MAY HELP WITH...
- REDUCING LACTIC ACID
- INCREASING REPETITIONS OR TTE
- BOOSTING NITRIC OXIDE
- SUPPORTING LEAN MUSCLE
Consume 3.2 – 6.4g of BETA ALANINE per day.
You can have one of these serves prior to exercise and one serve post exercise.
