Beta-Alanine is a specialised Amino Acid that is commonly used as an exercise performance agent. It has become increasingly popular over the past few years and the link between Beta Alanine and exercise performance has been the subject of much scientific research. Studies have shown that Beta-Alanine supplementation can significantly increase skeletal muscle carnosine levels and that this increase in correlated to improvements in exercise performance. Other studies have demonstrated that physical work capacity (PWC), a measure of aerobic power, muscular endurance and efficiency, can be significantly increased with Beta-Alanine supplementation.
Beta Alanine is an ideal supplement for both strength and endurance athletes. It can offer benefits to any individual involved in athletic activities where strength, power and muscular endurance are needed. It may also benefit active individuals who have reached a training plateau and are looking for a supplement to take them to the next level.

Beta-Alanine is used by many elite teams and elite athletes and tends to be well tolerated. It can cause in some individuals a prickling or pins and needles sensation called parathesia. This is caused by beta-alanine binding to nerve receptors, activating them and causing them to discharge or fire. This sensation tends to begin approximately 15-20 minutes after ingesting beta-alanine and usually continues for 1-1.5 hours. The intensity varies depending on dosing and individual sensitivity and often subsides over a few weeks of continued use.
