Description

Carnosine is a major intra-muscular buffer and some early studies have demonstrated that sprint-trained athletes have increased levels of carnosine as a result of their training. More recently, studies have shown that by ingesting beta-alanine over a period of a few weeks (normally 4-6 weeks), the muscle carnosine content increases significantly.

A question that often arises (as it should) concerns the likely side effects of taking beta-alanine. The only reported side effects are that of paraesthesia i.e. a feeling of tingling in the hands or fingers, or even nape of neck. This is temporary and usually addressed by taking lower doses spread over a day rather than a 3 gram dose at a single time, or a lower dose taken over a longer period of time. 

If an athlete is engaged in any activities where lactic acid production is likely to occur and possibly hamper performance, then loading up with beta-alanine to enhance muscle buffer capacity and aid the performance should be seriously considered. 


KEY BENEFITS

  • Increases muscle carnosine levels
  • Improves muscle buffering capacity
  • Promotes sprint and power
  • Helps athletes who are 'lactic acid producers'
