Beta Alanine Powder Pharmaceutical grade ultra-pure for maximum bioavailability. Pure amino acid with no fillers or additives. HPLC verified. Beta-Alanine is a lactic acid buffer that increases training capacity giving you the ability to train harder and longer. Weight training and athletic activities cause your body to produce lactic acid. This causes muscle pH to drop and become more acidic due to the large amount of hydrogen ions produced. As muscle pH drops, your muscle's ability to perform at its peak level decreases. Beta Alanine works by increasing muscle carnosine levels, which in turn, works as a muscle buffer by soaking up these extra hydrogen ions. In scientific studies, beta Alanine has been shown to increase strength, power output, endurance, exercise capacity, muscle mass, and delay the onset of neuromuscular fatigue. Beta Alanine is perfect for anyone who practices a sport where strength, power and endurance are needed. Beta-Alanine supports increased performance and lean mass gains by: Increasing muscular endurance for more productive workouts. Increasing exercise capacity so you can train harder & longer. Improving muscular strength & power output. Increasing intracellular carnosine levels delaying fatigue and metabolic acidosis. Helps delay muscle fatigue.

Scientific research has demonstrated that Beta-Alanine taken with creatine monohydrate produced additional synergistic effects, including fat free mass gain, increased strength and increased body fat reductions. Beta alanine will give you a more effective workout and is the great addition to your supplement regimen. Much of Beta-Alanine beneficial effects come through increasing the synthesis of carnosine, a powerful intracellular buffer. Carnosine is found in both type 1 and type 2 muscle fibers, though in significantly higher concentrations in type 2 fibers (the fibers we use in high intensity strength workouts and which are most responsive to growth). To function effectively, muscle cells rely on buffers like carnosine to avoid becoming acidic (low pH) during exercise. In order for muscles to remain strong and maintain powerful contractions, they need to be in an optimal pH range. If the pH drops below that optimal level your muscles will have significantly less strength and will fatigue more quickly. You know the pH is dropping when you feel that familiar lactic acid burn in your muscles. Lactic acid builds up largely as a result of an increase in hydrogen ions which build up when you exercise. Beta-Alanine helps to increase carnosine which acts to buffer lactic acid and return pH level within muscle cells back to optimum levels. Beta-Alanine benefits typically start to occur in as little as 2 weeks with the most dramatic results experienced after 3 to 4 weeks. Suggested Usage: As a dietary supplement, take 2000 mg twice daily, or as directed by your qualified health consultant. On Training Days: take one serving 30-45 minutes prior to exercise and one serving post workout but at least 3 hours after your first serving. On Non-Training Days: take one serving prior to your first meal of the day and another serving 68 hours later. Some powdered items may be hygroscopic and may clump during shipment. This does not effect the efficacy of the product, only the texture. Hypoallergenic: Contains no yeast, dairy, egg, gluten, corn, soy, wheat, sugar, starch, salt, preservatives, or artificial color, flavor or fragrance. Warning: NOT INTENDED FOR USE BY PERSONS UNDER THE AGE OF 18. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

Read all label warning before taking this or any nutritional supplement. Paresthesia (tingling effects) will usually be felt more notably in the face and hands and experienced by most individuals when consuming amounts of more than 10 milligrams per kilogram of body weight. For an average 165 pound male the dose that would likely cause mild to moderate tingling effects is approximately 750 milligrams. Feelings of paresthesia will vary individually but with doses approaching 20 milligrams per kilogram of body weight (1.5g for a 165 pound male) the majority of individuals will report moderate to significant paresthesia (tingling effects). With the consumption of single doses approaching 40 milligrams per kilogram of body weight (3 grams 165 pound male) most individuals will report paresthesia effects accompanied by severe and painful discomfort. Most individuals should never take more than 2 grams of Beta Alanine in a single dose without the advice and/or consent of their physician. Paresthesia symptoms can usually be avoided completely with doses of between 500 milligrams and 1 gram and spaced in intervals of 2 or more hours.
