What is Beta Alanine?
Beta Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is commonly used in pre workout formulas to help improve sporting performance. Beta Alanine is the culprit for the tingling feeling (paresthesia) that is often felt when you drink a pre workout. Beta Alanine is widely used by high performing athletes to help improve their performance but most gym goers still know very little about this high performer.
To reap the full benefits of supplementing with Beta Alanine you must ingest daily doses of at least 6g (2x 3g servings). Next time you purchase your pre workout, try adding a Scorpion Beta Alanine to help you meet your daily required amounts.
How does Beta Alanine work?
Beta Alanine is converted in the body to an amino acid called carnosine which helps to buffer lactic acid, hydrogen ions and metabolites which accumulate in our body after bouts of high intensity exercise. With regular use of Beta Alanine, your muscles increase their saturation of carnosine which may result in overall improved performance in the gym or on the sports field.
What are the physiological benefits to using Beta Alanine?
With long term supplementation of Beta Alanine studies show that you may improve your anaerobic capacity, have less muscle fatigue and increase lean muscle.
Who is going to benefit most from the use of Beta Alanine?
All individuals who are training in the lactate energy system will benefit from the use of Beta Alanine. The lactate energy system switches on, within our muscles, after 10sec of maximum effort and switches over to aerobic energy after 180sec. Most athletes who are training in the gym to increase lean muscle size may see gains with the use of Beta Alanine. Sporting individuals who perform repeated sprints on a field or court may also benefit from the use of Beta Alanine.
Beta Alanine may enhance performance by increasing exercise capacity and decreasing muscle fatigue. It also is thought to have antioxidant, immune-enhancing and anti-aging properties.
You can get Beta Alanine from foods that contain carnosine or through supplements. The recommended dose is 6g daily. Although excessive amounts may cause tingling in the skin, Beta Alanine is considered to be a safe and effective supplement to boost exercise performance.
