β-ALA+ is a pre-workout food supplement based on Carnosyn® β-alanine, useful to counter muscle fatigue and to improve physical performance in sport activity which involve aeromic, anaerobic or both metabolism.
Intense exercise slows down biochemical reactions thus promoting fatigue. Carnosine, which is formed from β-alanine and histidine, is an important antioxidant that protects cells from breakdown and buffers acids that cause fatigue. A study showed that β-alanine supplementation (6,4 grams per day for 28 days) promotes muscle relaxation, which is critical during short and repeated high-intensity contractions. β-alanine supplementation increases muscle carnosine’s level by improving muscle buffering capacity and preventing fatigue.
