Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is used by muscle cells to synthesize Carnosine. Carnosine is the dipeptide (Beta-Alanine plus Histidine) that functions as a buffer for the hydrogen ions (acid) produced during strenuous exercise, thus helping to maintain optimum muscular pH. Clinical studies suggest that Beta-Alanine supplementation can increase muscle Carnosine content and delay muscle fatigue.
Good Buy NOW Beta-Alanine Powder is a definite good buy for the money. I mix it with a juice or my shake because it is not the tastiest thing on the block. I definitely maitain my mass when I go on a cycle or miss a few days because of work. My muscles feel massaged when i take it after a workout. Reviewer: Messiah from Jasper, GA | Date: 5/12/2011
