Beta-alanine (or ß-alanine) is a component of the naturally occurring peptides carnosine and ansernine and also of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). It is also the only naturally occurring beta amino acid in beta form.. Beta-alanine can be found in chicken as well, but unfortunately not in amounts that give any benefit to humans.
Health and Fitness Information
Supplementation with beta-alanine has been thorough. Most studies show decreased fatigue and an increase in the total amount of work. What does this mean? It means you can lift more weight longer or for more reps. Beta-alanine is very useful in endurance athletes and triathletes because of it's ability to increase carnonsine concentrations and buffer acid from building up in the muscles. By this buffering mechanism, beta-alanine may prevent fatigue or early termination of your physical activity.
Beta-alanine works even better when in conjunction with some form of cratine. Many studies have used creatine monohydrate (Creapure). These studies have shown synergistic effect between the two. It's best to take the two together to get a 1+1=3 benefit verses only taking one. So when considering purchasing this product, pick up some Creapure from us as well to maximize the benefits of the strength and endurance properties these products offer.
Instructions for Use
On workout days, mix 1/2 teaspoon full in your favorite sports drink, juice, or water about 30 minutes prior to working out and another 2-3g approximately 8 hours later, preferably with a food. On non-training days, take 2 servings of 2-3g per day approximately 8 hours apart and preferably with food.*
