NOW Beta-Alanine (500g) provides a 100% pure form of the non-essential amino acid beta-alanine. Beta-alanine is a key component of carnosine synthesis in muscle cells. Carnosine is essential in buffering the lactic acid produced during intense training, increasing muscular endurance and prolonging sets by extended the time it takes to reach muscular exhaustion. Multiple research studies support beta-alanine’s ability to increase muscle carnosine concentrations as well as delay muscular fatigue. Many athletes and bodybuilders note that while taking beta-alanine they are able to increase their endurance threshold in both aerobic and anaerobic training. Beta-alanine is best taken in the morning, before/during workouts and again at night to ensure consistently saturated muscle carnosine levels. Beta-alanine is also known to produce a harmless tingling sensation soon after oral administration greater than 1.5 grams.
Beta-Alanine Description from Now
Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is used by muscle cells to synthesize Carnosine. Carnosine is the dipeptide (Beta-Alanine plus Histidine) that functions as a buffer for the hydrogen ions (acid) produced during strenuous exercise, thus helping to maintain optimum muscular pH. NOW uses CarnoSyn, a patented form of Beta-Alanine that has been clinically tested and shown to increase muscle Carnosine content, allowing muscles to work harder and longer during intense exercise. NOW Beta-Alanine is backed by scientific research demonstrating that CarnoSyn supplementation results in delayed muscle fatigue and rapid recovery time, thereby helping you attain your strength and endurance training goals.
