WHY SUPPLEMENT WITH BETA-ALANINE
During high-intensity training, glucose and glycogen are broken down for energy. In the process, hydrogen ions (H+) are also produced within the muscles. H+ accumulation causes the muscles to become more acidic and leads to muscular fatigue and declining performance. Our product Beta-Gains is packed with Beta-Alanine Powder which is designed to help boost your intramuscular buffering system of the hydrogen ions (H+) so you can train harder and longer. Beta-alanine is a modified version of the amino acid alanine.
Beta-alanine has been shown to enhance muscular endurance. Many people report being able to perform one or two additional reps in the gym when training in sets of 8-15 repetitions. Beta-alanine supplementation can also improve moderate to high intensity cardiovascular exercise performance, like rowing or sprinting.
When beta-alanine is ingested, it turns into the molecule carnosine, which acts as an acid buffer in the body. Carnosine is stored in cells and released in response to drops in pH. Increased stores of carnosine can protect against diet-induced drops in pH (which might occur from ketone production in ketosis, for example), as well as offer protection from exercise-induced lactic acid production.
