Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that your body does not use to synthesize proteins, unlike most other amino acids. The reason why it is so important to your body is that it is used to create carnosine. Carnosine helps you improve your athletic performance in the gym and other sports.
When you supplement the amino acid, during exercise:
- Glucose is broken down, which is the primary fuel source during HIIT training.
- Lactic Acid is formed from the breakdown of glucose, which converts into lactate – which produces hydrogen ions.
- Increased carnosine in your muscles protects your body against rising acid levels. This in turn delays fatigue.
The amino acid is effective in an exercise that lasts several minutes. It’s benefits of reducing fatigue also helps you increase exercise endurance and performance.
Beta-Alanine also helps you bean lean body mass. It does this because the amino acid helps the body increase its exercise volume.
Beta-alanine can help increase exercise volume. This could lead to increases in lean body mass — although the evidence is mixed.
