Pro Basics Beta-Alanine is 100% pure Beta-Alanine Powder. No GMO's, No additives, No flavoring, No preservatives. Suitable for Vegans and is Gluten Free. Store in a cool dry place. Importantly - allow 6 to 12 weeks to feel full effects of daily supplementation as carnosine levels continue to be optimized for a least 12 weeks. Beta-alanine supplementation is a better way to replenishing muscle carnosine levels than taking carnosine itself. See label for more details.
SPORTS/EXERCISE PERFORMANCE BENEFITS:
Beta-alanine (BA) is a non-essential amino acid that:
- Increases muscle carnosine levels
- which in turn fuels muscle performance
- by buffering Lactic Acid
Impressive sports or exercise performance benefits include:
- delaying the onset of fatigue
- Improving muscle strength, capacity and endurance.
This all adds up to improved overall exercise and/or athletic performance benefits so you can maximise your fitness results.
Studies have shown that BA supplementation can elevate muscle carnosine by up to 80%. Your body requires BA to produce Carnosine which is stored in your skeletal muscles. Carnosine levels are limited by the amount of available beta-alanine. Note that studies have shown that vegetarians have 50% less carnosine in their muscles than meat eaters.
Carnosine reduces lactic acid accumulation in your working muscles which helps to improve muscle endurance and muscle strength, delaying muscle fatigue. Studies have shown some positive results that boosting carnosine levels in elderly via BA can aid the function of muscles in older adults.
Studies have confirmed that BA supplementation extends the time to exhaustion (TTE) or time to fatigue i.e. improved exercise capacity and muscle endurance.
OTHER HEALTH BENEFITS:
By increasing carnosine levels, beta-alanine may have several additional health benefits.
Animal and test-tube studies have shown that carnosine has antioxidant, anti-aging and immune-enhancing properties.
The antioxidant benefits of carnosine include neutralizing free radicals and reducing oxidative stress. However, humans studies are needed to confirm these benefits exist in humans.
Adults take 1 scoop (1.2 g) daily mixed with a glass of water or dose as directed by your physician. You may feel a tingling sensation that may last on average
less than 30 minutes.
As a sports supplement on training days it is recommended to take 1 or 2 scoops prior to intensive exercise.
Taking BA with sodium bicarbonate may further enhance muscle performance by reducing acid in blood and muscles. While supplementing BA together with creatine has been shown to benefit muscle performance and strength.
