What is Beta-Alanine?

Beta-alanine is a non essential amino acid produced naturally in the body. [1] 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. [2] 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 which is a primary reason for muscle fatigue. Supplementing beta-alanine into your diet has may increase carnosine production by over 80% based on studies. [3]

Potential Benefits of Beta-Alanine

Beta-alanine is a supplement often taken before workouts. Some studies suggest that beta-alanine has the greatest impact on the human body during medium intervals of high-intensity training. While beta-alanine may still be effective to take before heavy weight training, it is ideal for intervals lasting between 1-4 minutes according to some studies. [4]
