Beta-alanine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in many meats – notably, in chicken, beef, port and fish. Scientists have known of its existence for more than a century, but most clinical research regarding its benefits are much more recent. We now know that beta-alanine is particularly useful to anyone wishing to increase muscle strength and endurance.
The build- up of hydrogen ions through lactic acid limits performance for almost everyone, regardless the muscle mass and the natural resistance to pain. According to a study presented to the American College of Sports Medicine in 2003, beta-alanine really does improve performance by removing this primary limiting factor.
As well as increasing endurance through the removal of factors causing fatigue and pain, there is some evidence indicating that beta-alanine supplementation actually makes muscles stronger. The dual action of this supplement makes it invaluable to anyone looking to build strength and increase endurance.
DOSE: Take 1-1.5 grams of beta-alanine twice daily.

I know my powders. The consistency, appearance, smell, and taste of them. This is very pure beta alanine at a great price. Shipment was fast and product packaged perfectly.

Great for endurance and recovery. Works great with Creatine before and after workouts.
