Elemental Nutrition Beta-Alanine

Beta-Alanine is one of the most well researched nutrients for increasing high-intensity exercise capacity. Elemental Nutrition’s Beta-Alanine uses the proven and researched form of beta-alanine, namely, CarnosynTM Beta-Alanine. A multitude of studies have shown that supplementation with 2-6 grams of CarnosynTM Beta-Alanine per day can boost muscle carnosine levels by 20-80% depending on the length of supplementation.

Carnosine Facts

  • Dipeptides made of histidine and beta-alanine
  • Body’s main intracellular buffer of acidosis (i.e. hydrogen ions H+)
  • Found in highest concentration in fast-twitch muscle fibres

Beta-Alanine Benefits

  • Increases carnosine levels in muscle
  • Buffers acidity during high intensity exercise
  • Supplementation leads to improved training adaptations
  • Improves endurance capacity, ventilatory threshold, and time to exhaustion

“Analysis indicates that supplementation with…beta-alanine would result in a median improvement of 2.85% compared with a placebo. Assuming a linear relationship between running speed and percentage effect, if this improvement was extrapolated and applied to a…1,500 m run, performance time would be improved by 6 s. This improvement would be sufficient to move the last place finalist in the men’s 1,500 m at the Beijing 2008 Olympic games to a bronze medal position.”*
