Increases your time to exhaustion

Beta alanine is shown to stave off exhaustion with high intensity activity. It works by buffering the build up of acid in the muscles.

Ridiculously well researched

We don’t settle for lab or animal studies. Beta alanine has been extensively tested on training adults in published research studies. Lots of them!

Physiological function

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.

Making carnosine from beta-alanine:

Beta alanine is used in the body to make carnosine, a natural lactic acid buffer

Performance improvements

BETA-Alanine enhances rowing performance at shorter distances (500-2000m) (2)

BETA-Alanine improves cycling capacity and sprint performance (3, 4, 5)

Taking BETA-Alanine extends time to exhaustion when training at high intensity for short bouts (up to 5 mins) (6, 7)

BETA-Alanine can increase power output when doing high intensity interval training like Airdyne sprints (7)

When doing strength based training, BETA-Alanine increases the volume of training (number of reps), an athlete is capable of achieving (8)

BETA-Alanine may also be an antioxidant and have other health benefits (9)

Beta-alanine is for:

CrossFitters

Climbers

Mountain bikers

Athletes who do sprint interval training

Shorter distance athletes (sprint cyclists, runners and rowers)

Sports athletes who do a lot of sprint bursts

Soccer, hockey, basketball and football players

How does beta alanine work:

Beta alanine becomes carnosine.

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.

When it works best.

It has been found to be much more effective in training bouts that last between 1-4 mins at high intensity, and seems to work better in older athletes. It may also sharpen the mind a little.

One side effect.

Beta alanine can stimulate nerve endings in the skin at certain dosages. This leads to a tingling sensation called paraesthesia. While not too troublesome it can startle people who first take it.
