Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid and is the only naturally occurring beta-amino acid.
Beta-Alanine has been shown in research to increase muscular Carnosine concentrations. Carnosine is a dipeptide (Beta-Alanine plus Histidine) that helps maintain optimum muscular pH. Beta-Alanine allows muscles to work harder and longer during intense exercise. Muscle carnosine concentration is also linked with having a high percentage of Type II fast-twitch muscle fibers.
Beta-Alanine and Creatine make a perfect combination to support muscular strength, size, power, speed and lean mass gains.
Scientific researches demonstrate that Beta-Alanine supplementation results in delayed muscle fatigue and rapid recovery time, thereby helping you attain your strength and endurance training goals.
Specifically, beta-alanine seems most effective for supporting exercise lasting longer than 60 seconds.
Warning: Beta-Alanine may cause a harmless, temporary tingling sensation on the skin for some individuals. After a few weeks of supplementation with Beta-Alanine, this sensation normally lessens or subsides.
