Betancourt Beta Alanine Carnosyn 300 g
Beta Alanine Powder
Beta-Alanine is considered to be the 'new creatine' in sports performance; not because it can replace the proven strength/muscle builder, but because it is proven to boost performance and muscular endurance for high intensity exercise. Whereas creatine is considered ideal for boosting absolute strength, Beta-Alanine is considered ideal for the higher intensity rep ranges because of its ability to buffer lactic acid. Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is used by muscle cells to synthesize carnosine which functions as a buffer for the hydrogen ions (acid) produced during strenuous exercise, thus helping to maintain optimum muscular pH. Clinical studies suggest that Beta-Alanine supplementation can delay muscle fatigue.
Betancourt Nutrition uses trademarked CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine, the same material used in the studiesto showcaseBeta-Alanine's effectiveness.
