What is Beta-Alanine and what does it do?
Beta-alanine is a non essential amino acid produced naturally in the body.  It works with L-histidine, another amino acid which is ingested through one’s diet, to produce carnosine, a compound that plays a crucial role in preventing muscle fatigue and enhancing overall athletic performance.  Your body typically has high levels of L-histidine and relatively low levels of beta-alanine, which severely limits carnosine production. Carnosine blocks acid buildup in your muscles. Acid buildup is the primary reason for muscle fatigue. Supplementing beta-alanine into your diet has been shown to increase carnosine production by over 80%. 
When to Take Beta-Alanine?
Beta-alanine is a supplement which should be taken before workouts and is especially effective during high intensity workouts. Studies have shown that beta-alanine has the greatest impact on the human body during medium intervals of high-intensity training. For example, while beta-alanine will still be effective to take before heavy weight training, beta-alanine is ideal for intervals lasting between 1-4 minutes.  You will notice a difference while running, swimming, cycling, or any high rep exercises after taking beta-alanine. Through this lens, Tru Power’s supplementation of beta-alanine along with other BCAAs is especially impactful towards giving you that edge you need in your workout to push yourself harder for longer than you could before.
