- 100% Pure Beta Alanine Powder
- Reduced Feelings of Fatigue
- Increased Power and Training Volume
Beta alanine is a powdered product that lends itself well to synthesizing L-carnosine, which itself is a type of amino acid that provides a host of benefits to anyone involved in much physical activity such as athletes or bodybuilders.
Studies show that the level of carnosine is raised significantly and the levels of lactic acid are in turn lowered significantly during physical activity thanks to the presence of beta alanine in the blood stream. Its main use is as a buffer, which prevents acid levels in the body from rising to a level in which they may damage muscle tissue. This means that beta alanine can raise the level of overall physical performance when taken as a supplement, by increasing the threshold of lactate. Beta alanine is the only beta amino acid in the body which it is not necessary to supplement through dietary intake because it is naturally occurring.
Health Benefits Provided By Beta Alanine
Beta alanine is chiefly useful in increasing the longevity of endurance when doing any sort of physical activity, allowing the person taking it to exercise much longer and thus, increase their muscle mass or burn their fat much more efficiently. In addition it indirectly helps to widen the blood vessels via carnosine, which increases blood flow during long bouts of physical activity.
The Difference between L Carnosine and Beta Alanine
Taking into account the similarities between the two and the overlap associated with both of them, one may wonder why they should bother taking beta alanine when L carnosine is a viable supplement as well. Well essentially, the problem that makes L carnosine less viable as a direct supplement is that it is broken down by the body too quickly in smaller doses. It would be necessary to take much larger quantities of carnosine at once to provide the same effectiveness that would come with taking a much smaller and more manageable amount of beta alanine. Since beta alanine is eventually broken down into a more sustainable and controllable amount of carnosine anyway, it makes more sense to stick with beta alanine as your main supplement.
Serving Size & Timing
Beta Alanine must be taken in doses of 500mg per day. This is the suggested serving size, however, more or less can be taken depending on intended effect. For anyone that does not have access to precise measuring tools, this translates out to about one eighth of a teaspoon.

- This beta alanine is perfect to have when trying to make your own pre workout. I ordered this with several other products to make my own pre workout without any of the fillers most companies put in their pre. It has no taste and really easy to mix. It has really given my pre workout that extra kick I have been looking for. This is by far the cheapest price I have found for raw alanine.

- Beta alanine has become one of my top supplements that I make sure to use every single day. I have noticed a marked decrease in muscle fatigue both during aerobic and strength training since I have started regularly using the supplement. If you look at the label of any pre-workout mix, this will certainly be one of the top ingredients. Why take the risk of the mystery concoctions, just buy the pure ingredients.
