Beta-alanine: what you should know
Beta-alanine is a compound that belongs to the group of non-protein amino acids. Beta-alanine together with L-histidine forms a carnosine dipeptide. In the human body, carnosine is mainly located in muscle tissue, but also in the heart and brain. Carnosine is a physicochemical buffer in the muscles that has a protective effect against changes in pH. According to the 2012 scientific article ‘Effects of β-alanine supplementation on physical performance: a meta-analysis’ published in Amino Acids, muscle acidification can cause fatigue during high intensity exercise and increased concentration of muscle carnosine increases muscle capacity. which delays the onset of fatigue. Beta-alanine supplementation has been shown to increase carnosine levels in muscle fibers. In the aforementioned article, the researchers concluded that beta-alanine supplementation had a significant ergogenic effect on high-intensity exercise, especially in tests and measurements of exercise capacity and when exercise lasts from 1 to 4 minutes. Given the types, intensity, and duration of exercise positively affected by -alanine supplementation, the most likely mechanism to support the benefit is an increase in intracellular pH as a result of increased muscle carnosine levels.
