A MAK-Honest Review of Beta Alanine
Supplement Type: Beta Alanine
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. Beta Alanine comes in a 250gm (200 serves) size.

When to take Beta Alanine?
For best results take 1.2 grams with 50ml of water before, during or directly after training. ATP Science's Beta Alanine is freely soluble in water. Warning: A common side effect of Beta Alanine is flushing or tingling/itching of the skin. As mentioned above, the sciencey name for it is paresthesia. It shouldn't last long!
How does Beta Alanine work? Pros?
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 prolonged bouts of high intensity exercise.
In a recent study, twenty-five active males were supplemented with 6.4 grams per day of beta alanine or a placebo for a 24 week period. Every 4 week participants provided a muscle biopsy and performed a high-intensity cycling capacity test. The study found that twenty-four weeks of beta alanine supplementation increased muscle carnosine content and improved high-intensity cycling capacity. The study also found that beta alanine plays an important role in muscle carnosine accumulation and production.

Quick Answers to Common Questions
Why does Beta Alanine give me the 'tingles/itch'?
Beta 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.
