You should know that it is a non-essential amino acid that occurs naturally. It is introduced to the boy through any type of food that is high in proteins i.e. poultry.
Beta-Alanine is able to enhance performance because it is able to increase the intramuscular levels of carnosine. In four weeks, these levels can see a 60% increase. Due to intense exercise, our bodies become acidic as the pH drops because of the accumulation of more hydrogen.
This acidity (you might know this as lactic acid) ends up causing fatigue and reduces muscular performance. If you keep the level of carnosine high (through Beta-Alanine), you can delay such acidity and work longer.
The benefits include:
- More endurance.
- Able to apply more force.
- Delay overall fatigue.
- Works together with creatine inside your body for better performance.
It is recommended that you only take 2 to 6 grams per day
