What is Beta-Alanine?
Beta-alanine is a version of alanine that turns into carsonine after ingestion. Carsonine is an acid buffer that is stored in cells within the body and released when pH levels drop down, reducing the effects of lactic acid. In turn, this helps reduce muscular fatigue and soreness. Muscular fatigue is reduced in the 60 to 240 second range, which makes it directly applicable to reducing fatigue during a lifting set. These results have been observed consistently.
