what does Beta-alanine for
Oct 26, 2017

  Beta-alanine(Synonyms,3-Aminopropanoic acid) is one of the non-essential amino acids and is good for builting body.

How to get it? 

  Good natural dietary sources of beta-alanine are believed to be obtained through ingesting the beta-alanine containing dipeptides: Carnosine, anserine and balenine, rather than directly ingesting beta-alanine. These dipeptides are found in protein rich foods such as chicken, beef, pork and fish. It is predominantly through ingesting the dipeptide carnosine that we ingest most of our beta-alanine, as the two other dipeptides are not found nearly as plentiful in our typical coniferous diet. 

    Carnosine is a naturally occurring di-peptide that is found in both type 1 and type 2 muscle fibers (but in significantly higher concentrations in type 2 fibers) and its primary function is to act as an intracellular buffer of hydrogen ions (H+). When we exercise, especially when it's high intensity exercise, our bodies accumulate a large amount of hydrogen ions (H+), causing our muscles' pH to drop (becoming more acidic).      However, obtaining beta-alanine through these dipeptides is not the only way, as our bodies can synthesize it in the liver from the catabolism of pyrimidine nucleotides which are broken down into uracil and thymine and then metabolized into beta-alanine and B-aminoisobutyrate. Of course, it can also be ingested through a Beta Alanine Supplement which is the focus of this article. 
  As research shows, there is a strong relationship between carnosine concentrations in muscle and high intensity exercise performance. Scientists have demonstrated that high intensity/high volume training significantly increases muscle carnosine concentrations in untrained subjects. However this rise in carnosine levels soon plateaus, after which, the only way to increase levels further is to supplement with BA (carnosine itself is poorly absorbed in humans). BA has been shown to raise muscle carnosine levels by 64% in as little as 4 weeks, and by 80% after 10 weeks. 

     There is also some evidence that Beta Alanine might work as an cellular health supplement, a helpful, sacrificial peptide, or a calcium sensitivity booster in contractile fibers.

    Beta-Alanine alanine is considered as alanine powder, which an be used as promotion in sports. β-alanine, a new creatine,  can improve muscle endurance, promote the buffering capacity of lactic acid and help maintain muscle. Usually, 1-2 scoops a day with water or juice , 30 minutes before exercise.
