Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid and the only amino acid that exists naturally. For you who exercise, Beta-Alanine is advantageous to use because it is the limiting factor of the amount of carnosine in the muscle. An increased amount of Beta-Alanine gives you a larger buffer of carnosine for your muscles.
By an increased supply of carnosine the muscles aerobic and anaerobic training capacity is improved. Carnosine has a buffer capacity in the muscle cell and lessens the degree of acidification of the muscle by buffering the hydrogen ions that emerge during heavy exercise.
Beta-Alanine is a super product! Whom does it benefit?
A number of studies have been made on the different kinds of usage of Beta-Alanine. Scientist now knows a lot about the positive impact Beta-Alanine has on you who exercise.
Beta-Alanine improves the ability of sprinting or spurting which makes it perfectly designed for you who play soccer, hockey or are a sprinter or a middle distance runner.
Beta-Alanine + Creatine is a super combination for you who workout because it increases muscle mass at the same time as it decreases the mass of fat. **
What about the itching/tingling sensation I get when I take Beta-Alanine?
The itching or tingling that can sometimes be felt is perfectly harmless. In Swedish it is called Paresti. It is caused by a high level of Beta-Alanine in the blood and usually occurs after about 20 minutes and lasts for about 1.5 hours.
The reactions to Beta-Alanine are different but the itching has nothing to do with the effect. You get the same effect whether you experience the itching or not.
