Taking Beta-Alanine helps provide the essential element for the synthesis of Carnosine.
Carnosine is a dipeptide composed of Beta-Alanine and Histidine. Carnosine helps to maintain relatively neutral muscle pH when a large amount of lactic acid is produced.
We know that the rate of Carnosine is limited by the amount of Beta-Alanine available.
Studies show that using Beta-Alanine increases muscle Carnosine concentration.
Beta-Alanine therefore becomes important to prolong or intensify your workout by delaying the effect of lactic acid.
