Beta alanine, otherwise known as aminopropanoic acid, is a nonessential amino acid that naturally occurs in the body and can also be found in foods such as chicken, pork, beef and fish. Amino acids are known to be the building blocks of protein, which is the primary fuel for muscle growth. Due to beta alanine not being able to turn into a protein alone it has to promote high concentrations of carnosine, which acts as a buffering agent that maintains muscle mass before and after workouts.
Supports physical performance- Beta alanine helps to increase the molecule carnosine, which helps to maintain and increase muscle mass. Used predominately by athletes and body builders as it helps to increase their physical performance during workouts

What is Beta Alanine used for?
Beta Alanine is a well-known supplement in the world of sports and weight training. It is an example of a non-essential amino acid which is not always easy to get from a normal diet. It is this which makes it quite difficult to get the required dosage naturally. When it is taken, the Beta Alanine is converted to carnosine which can then help to increase stamina, muscle development and strength. It is known to increase training performance as well as reducing muscle fatigue.
Beta Alanine is geared towards body builders, weight lifters, athletes and very active people. It is also suited to runners, cyclists, football and hockey players. For people who are active and have perhaps reached a plateau in their training routine who are seeking something to help to elevate them to the next level.
How does Beta Alanine work?
Beta Alanine is be found naturally in foods such as pork, beef, chicken and fish. Our bodies are able to synthesise it within the liver from the catabolism of pyrimidine nucleotides that get broken down into thymine and uracil. They are then metabolized into beta-alanine and B-aminoisobutyrate. It is also possible to ingest this through supplementation too.
Beta-Alanine gives a specific and targeted stimulant response and is ideally taken before your workout. It is predominantly used to enhance physical performance, specifically throughout or, as part of a high-intensity workout or strength training routine. It is also commonly used to delay muscle fatigue on older adults too.
Beta Alanine elevates intra-muscular rates of carnosine, which boosts the build-up of hydrogen ions in the muscle tissue. It is this which then results in improved performance for activities that last between 1-4 minutes. Carnosine is constructed of two different amino acids. It is found in type one and two muscle fibres. In order to allow your muscles to function effectively, the cells depends on buffers such as carnosine, to prevent them from becoming acidic, or in other words, having a low Ph throughout exercise. In order for your muscles to sustain their strength, they are required to always be in the optimum Ph range, it is when this dips below that levels, that you experience muscle fatigue and reduced strength.
