Beta Alanine is a clean and simple supplement that will increase muscular endurance during short to mid-range and high intensity training.
High intensity training causes a build-up of lactic acid in the muscle and blood. This is thought to result that burning sensation in the muscle you experience when training as well as, a loss of power and eventually fatigue. In muscle cells, beta-alanine is combined with the amino acid histidine to create carnosine. Carnosine buffers lactic acid build-up slowing the onset of fatigue
Beta-alanine works with many types of training. Lactic acid buffering by taking beta alanine has been shown to increase the time to exhaustion in athletes doing rowing, running and cycling. Beta-alanine has been found to be much more effective in training bouts that last between 1-4 mins at high intensity.
To benefit from taking beta-alanine you require 6g per day. To achieve this, take one level scoop twice a day (one AM, and one PM) ideally with food. Do not exceed the recommended serving.
Beta-alanine can stimulate nerve endings in the skin at certain dosages. This leads to a tingling sensation called paraesthesia. If consistently consuming Beta Alanine, this sensation will dissipate.
