When you engage in moderate to intense exercise, The accumulation of H+ causes the reduction of a muscle cell pH, which affects its contractile properties, decreasing the muscle’s ability to force production and leads to fatigue.
Thus, interventions that may reduce H+ accumulation, enhance its removal from muscle cells, and increase the body’s buffering capacity should be advantageous for a high-intensity exercise performance. Beta-alanine has demonstrated promise in enhancing the buffering capacity and aiding anaerobic performance.
Beta-alanine is an amino acid that aids the synthesis of carnosine, which is an essential intracellular buffer. Direct supplementation of carnosine itself gave no advantage because it gets broken into histidine and Beta-alanine after entering the bloodstream. Therefore,research pointed towards supplementing with Beta-alanine instead to raise carnosine levels. That’s the reason Beta-Alanine forms an integral part of number of Pre-workout supplements in the market.
This eBook will give you a detailed insight into the benefits of Beta-Alanine on sports performance and how you can include it in your training regime.
