Beta-alanine belongs to non-protein amino acids. It is considered one of the most versatile amino acids – it works equally well in endurance and strength sportsmen. It allows for the inhibition of acidification of skeletal muscle occurring in aerobic and anaerobic exercises. In practice, this results in an increased capability to perform longer and more intensive training sessions. Consequently, the motor skills and the increase of lean body mass are improved.
Most of the benefits that beta-alanine is credited for are carried out through the participation of carnosine made up of beta-alanine. It is stored in type I and II muscle fibers, while its highest concentrations are recorded in type II fibers. They are used during strength training and have the best stimuli response to growth. Carnosine acts as a buffer that prevents adverse changes within the pH. Carnosine is also credited for antioxidant and anti-glycation effect.
We offer a whole range of preparations based on beta-alanine. Some of them also contain small amounts of L-histidine, which, similarly to beta-alanine, is required for the synthesis of carnosine. This guarantees that our comprehensive products will allow you to take advantage of all the benefits of systemic high levels of carnosine.
