A humble amino acid that packs a tingling punch to skin - which this supplement is very well known for.
It's also a great tool for vasodilatory effects with training, buffering acidic build up from metabolic processes incurred during exercise and reduces the early onset of fatigue especially in High intensity training. It's a very effective inhibitor of Glycation where by sugars bind with proteins and oxidise causing damage to muscles, collagen and connective tissues.
BETA ALANINE - FOR BOOSTING MUSCLE CARNOSINE LEVELS & PERFORMANCE
Beta Alanine supplementation increases muscle carnosine better than taking carnosine itself. Muscle carnosine is an intramuscular acidity buffer and antioxidant. Beta alanine increases stamina and endurance by buffering metabolic acid and waste as it is made. This means less muscle pain and greater muscle performance.
During high intensity exercise, there is a greater reliance on ATP production from glycolysis and phosphagen systems resulting in an accumulation H+, which leads to exercise-induced metabolic acidosis. This acidity has been implicated as the cause of muscular fatigue and decreased muscle contractile function. By buffering exercise-induced acidity, muscle carnosine enhances performance. Especially in events with prologonged bouts of high intensity exercise.
Muscle Carnosine works as:
Intramuscular buffer for exercise-induced acidity
Regulates calcium sensitivity and excitation–contraction coupling. Calcium influx
Triggers neuromuscular junctions and can trigger contractions, twitches, taps, cramps and spams. Carnosine can prevent muscle spasms, cramping and loss of coordination.
Protects against glycation. Glycation is a process whereby sugars attach to proteins and oxidise, causing damage to muscles, collagen and connective tissue.
Why does Beta Alanine give me the ‘tingles/itch’?
β-alanine, induces itch and tingling after consumption which is harmless. It has been found in humans that the primary sensory neurons responsive to β-alanine are likely part of a histamine-independent itch neural circuit and a target for treating clinical itch that is unrelieved by anti-histamines.3
