Beta Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that occurs naturally as the only beta-amino acid. It is the building block of carnosine, which is a dipeptide molecule consisting of Beta Alanine and L-Histidine. It aids in buffering acid build-up within muscles and increases performance in the 60-240-second range. Scitec Nutrition has included both ingredients within this formula. Carnosine is found in high concentrations especially within skeletal muscle and it is preferentially located inside the strongest Type II fast-twitch muscle fibers. It has become increasingly popular to supplement with products that boost carnosine among educated bodybuilders and performance athlets all over the world.
Beta Alanine has been scientifically proven to enhance muscular endurance in humans. Many test subjects consuming the amino acid in scientific research experiments have reported being able to perform one or two more repetitions than usual when training within the 12-15 repetition range in the gym. Supplementing with it can also improve moderate to high-intensity cardiovascular exercise performance, such as rowing or sprinting for example.
Ingesting beta-alanine will cause it to turn into the molecule carnosine, which then acts as a buffer for acid in the body. It is stored in cells and gets released when the body detects a drop in pH value (a sign of acid build-up). Increased storages of carnosine can protect the body against reductions in pH induced by the diet (a potential result of following a ketogenic diet for example) as well as provide protection from lactic acid production caused by performing physical exercise.
Please be advised that large doses of Beta-Alanine can cause an itching, burning or tingling sensation in the skin in some indivudals called paresthesia. This is a completely harmless side effect that will eventually subside with continuous usage.
Scitec Nutrition's product will provide you without performance boosting effects without causing any useless stomach bloat or other gastro-intestinal distress.
