Beta-Alanine is considered to be the "new creatine" in sports performance; not because it can replace the heavily researched strength/muscle builder, but because it is suggested 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 exercise-induced muscle fatigue.*

Directions For Beta Alanine Powder: Take one or two servings 20-30 minutes prior to training with juice or a pre-workout sports drink. Take one serving twice daily on non-training days as well, with or without food. Begin with one-half serving twice daily to assess your tolerance as beta alanine may produce a slight and harmless flushing and/or prickly sensation that will subside within minutes of use.
