What are Beta Alanine capsules?
Beta alanine is the only naturally occurring beta-amino acid and is classed as a nonessential amino acid. It is widely used by athletes and often used in conjunction with L-Histidine. Our Beta Alanine capsules offer an 11:1 ratio of beta alanine to L-Histidine. It’s worth noting that beta alanine is most commonly known for its itching side effects after consumption, usually after a pre-workout.
The benefits of Beta Alanine capsules
Combining beta alanine and L-Histidine helps raise carnosine levels in the body. Carnosine is not only an antioxidant which helps lower oxidative stress, it also acts as a buffer for lactic acid (hydrogen ions), which in summary means you can workout at higher intensities for longer.
Who are Beta Alanine capsules suitable for?
Beta alanine is extremely popular with athletes as it has been shown to improve strength endurance and buffer lactic acids (hydrogen ions). Beta alanine is also ideal for anybody simply looking to improve athletic performance.
As mentioned, Beta Alanine is in most pre-workouts which sequentially leads to that itchy sensation. Many users of Beta Alanine prefer this method of consumption however more often than not, the dosage is quite low. If you can tolerate the ‘tingles’ then you can work up to anywhere between 3-5g Beta Alanine per day. It is not compulsory to consume this pre-workout, you can take it throughout the course of the day & our advice is to start low and taper up.
