Beta Alanine supplementation is ideal for anyone participating in sports that are explosive such as sprinting or weight training and for those involved in prolonged endurance exercise. Beta-Alanine supplementation has been shown helps to increase muscle carnosine which in turn acts as a buffer for intense training.
Increasing carnosine levels through Beta Alanine supplementation may delay fatigue during endurance exercise or translate into lifting more weights and increasing total work output.
There is a point at which our muscles reach extreme fatigue and we can no longer perform an exercise or even push another repetition. This is commonly referred to in the gym as “muscle failure.” In essence, increasing Beta-Alanine stores through dietary supplementation causes a slowdown (buffering effect) in declining muscle pH. The result is a substantially extended period of muscular effort and an increase in total work output, particularly during high-intensity exercise.
Directions for Use
As soon as you start supplementing with Beta-Alanine your carnosine levels will begin to rise. Significant power and strength increases are regularly seen within 4 weeks. Resistance to fatigue will also increases as your overall carnosine levels rise. Studies have shown that Beta-Alanine allows carnosine levels to reach a peak after around 12 weeks of supplementation; this level will be maintained as long as supplementation continues.
Dosage: We recommend a 2-5g dose per day divided into 2 doses and taken with food.
Allergens: Formulation contains no allergens. Not suitable for children, pregnant or lactating women
Note: Beta Alanine taken in excessive doses has been shown to cause parasthesia, a sensation of tingling, pricking, or numbness of a person's skin with no apparent long-term physical effect. Effects of parasthesia are reduced and Beta-Alanine absorption is enhanced when taken with food.
