Beta-alanine at its core is a nonessential amino acid — one that our bodies can create by itself and doesn't need external nutrition to create. The chief purpose of beta-alanine is to form and increase a compound molecule by the name of carnosine. Carnosine is stored in your brain and muscles. Within your muscles, its primary purpose is regulating the acidity levels of your muscles. You know that burning feeling when you're getting a serious pump or doing supersets? That's your muscles filling with acid and the reason you become fatigued. With additional supplementation of beta-alanine, your body will increase carnosine which counteracts your muscle acidity and in turn increases the amount of stress and work your muscles can accomplish before feeling acidic.
Beta-alanine studies have shown that it can improve both endurance and weightlifting performance, and increase muscle growth for a set lasting up to four minutes. Meaning the window is perfect for sprint training, standard bodybuilding, and powerlifting since the intervals of reps are typically fall within that four-minute window. The ideal dosage of beta-alanine is 4.8 grams a day taken pre-workout or late at night. ProSupps has no shortage of amino acids to choose from and beta-alanine is no different. Try products like AminoLinx and reap the benefits from day one.
