A Naturally Occurring Beta Amino Acid!
Beta-Alanine aka 3-aminopropanoic acid is a naturally occurring beta amino acid.
Beta-Alanine is the rate-limiting precursor of carnosine (meaning carnosine levels are limited by the amount of available beta-alanine. Beta-alanine’s ability to increase intramuscular carnosine concentrations is where it derives its ergogenic properties. In one study, after 10 weeks of supplementing with beta-alanine, the increase in intramuscular carnosine was an average of 80.1%.
A lot of talk about carnosine, and we still haven’t discussed what it does. Carnosine is a dipeptide, consisting of the amino acids beta-alanine and histidine.
Carnosine has a plethora of benefits:
- Carnosine can help oppose glycation – meaning it may help support against the formation of AGEs (Advanced Glycation End products). Which may help promote overall health.
- Carnosine acts as an antioxidant – carnosine has been suggested to help scavenge reactive oxygen species (ROS) Chelation agent.
- Because of its antiglycation, antioxidant, and chelation properties, carnosine has been proposed as a general health-promoting supplement.
- Has the ability to promote a beneficial muscular pH by soaking up fatigue causing hydrogen ions.* This may help you train for longer durations without getting tired.
As you can see, it is definitely worth it to supplement with beta-alanine, even if your main reason for taking it isn’t muscle gain.
