So how does increasing skeletal muscle Carnosine levels help exercise performance?
Carnosine plays an important role in skeletal muscle physiology. It is a very efficient hydrogen ion (H+) buffer.
When you exercise, especially when it's high intensity exercise, your body accumulates a large amount of hydrogen ions (H+), causing your muscles' pH to drop (become more acidic). This drop in pH causes your muscle to fatigue and your muscles ability to contract forcibly and maintain a high level of performance throughout your workout session is significantly reduced. Not being able to maintain forceful muscular contractions limits your ability to overload your muscles and force new muscle gains.
On the other hand, in muscles where carnosine concentrations are high, intracellular pH levels are maintained. Maintaining intracellular pH levels helps protect the muscle against the negative effects of lactic acid and helps reduce muscle fatigue. Slowing muscular fatigue will help maintain muscle power, strength and endurance. Beta Alanine has been shown to help boosts the synthesis of carnosine in the body (2, 11, 12, 13). This helps explain why Beta Alanine is such a popular supplement, especially for exercises requiring strength and power such as sprinting and weight lifting.
In various human studies Beta-alanine supplementation has been shown to increase exercise performance, including increased time to exhaustion (4), peak power output during a sprint (7), training amounts for the bench press exercise (8), increase in the total number of repetitions performed and change in mean power (9), as well as fatigue threshold and physical working capacity at neuromuscular fatigue threshold (4, 3, 10).
Beta Alanine is an ideal supplement for both strength and endurance athletes. It can offer benefits to any individual involved in athletic activities where strength, power and muscular endurance are needed. It may also benefit active individuals who have reached a training plateau and are looking for a supplement to take them to the next level.
BSc’s Beta-Alanine is Informed-Sport certified. This is the best standard in supplement quality control there is, as it requires every batch of Beta-Alanine to be tested before release to market. This means every batch of BSc’s Beta-Alanine is tested in the LGC Sport Science laboratory in Cambridge, UK, for over 146 substances listed on the WADA and other prohibited substances lists before being released for sale or make available to an athlete or team. So, it can be considered a safe and legal method of supplementing the diet, even in elite athletes subjected to regular drug testing.
It is suggested you consume Beta-Alanine with water 20 - 30 minutes before intense exercise. On non training days consume immediately after breakfast. Results generally occur in the first two weeks of Beta-Alanine intake with the greatest results generally experienced within the 3-4 week range.
Beta-Alanine is used by many elite teams and elite athletes and tends to be well tolerated. It can cause in some individuals a prickling or pins and needles sensation called parathesia. This is caused by beta-alanine binding to nerve receptors, activating them and causing them to discharge or fire. This sensation tends to begin approximately 15-20 minutes after ingesting beta-alanine and usually continues for 1-1.5 hours. The intensity varies depending on dosing and individual sensitivity and often subsides over a few weeks of continued use.
As with any supplement, individuals should not consume Beta-Alanine at higher than recommended daily intake and should consult a physician prior to beginning a new exercise or nutritional program.
So if you’re looking for a quality supplement to help increase your power, strength and endurance, reduce your fatigue and improve the quality of your training, then try BSc’s 100% pure, pharmaceutical grade Beta-Alanine.

100% Pure Beta Alanine.
Beta-Alanine is a specialised Amino Acid that is commonly used as an exercise performance agent. It has become increasingly popular over the past few years and the link between Beta Alanine and exercise performance has been the subject of much scientific research (6). Studies have shown that Beta-Alanine supplementation can significantly increase skeletal muscle carnosine levels and that this increase in correlated to improvements in exercise performance (1, 2). Other studies have demonstrated that physical work capacity (PWC), a measure of aerobic power, muscular endurance and efficiency, can be significantly increased with Beta-Alanine supplementation (3, 4).
