At all levels of training, people are looking for that extra edge. They want the ability to push harder, faster and further and they are looking for products that will help them achieve this.
Beta-alanine is a naturally occurring beta amino acid and is increasingly used by athletes due to its performance enhancing attributes. Beta-alanine is the building block of carnosine, a molecule that helps buffer acid in muscles, potentially increasing physical performance.
Beta-alanine has been shown to enhance muscular endurance and may also enhance moderate to high-intensity cardiovascular exercise performance. It is famous for producing the "tingling”
sensation which is a harmless side-effect that is often enjoyed by the more hardcore training fraternity.
The performance benefits from beta-alanine are based on raising muscle carnosine concentrations. This will be more effective when supplemented on a regular basis.
