β-ALANINE+ is a pre-workout food supplement based on CarnoSyn® β-Alanine, intended to counteract muscle fatigue and improve physical performance in sports activities involving aerobic, anaerobic or mixed metabolism.
ß-alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is used by muscle cells to synthesize carnosine, a dipeptide consisting of ß-alanine and L-histidine. Carnosine can increase the production of energy (ATP) through different oxidative processes that take place inside the cells and exert a valuable antioxidant action, which allows to protect intra-cellular proteins from oxidation. In addition, it acts as a buffer on intracellular metabolic acidosis: normally stored inside cells, carnosine is in fact released when pH decreases occur due, for example, to lactic acid production during exercise. The buffering action of carnosine on lactic acid-induced acidosis allows to improve muscle performance in short duration and high intensity exercises.
The use of a pre-workout supplement such as ß-ALANINE+ is therefore useful to support high intensity physical performance and to delay the onset of fatigue related to it.
