Let’s talk about Beta-Alanine. This wonderful supplement helps with the continuous release of carnosine while you train. Now, carnosine is actually an amino acid that works to buffer lactic acid build-up, preventing muscle cramps during training, which allows you to train at a higher intensity, as well as improve recovery after training. Beta-Alanine has even been shown to increase muscle carnosine concentrations by up to 58% in 4 weeks.

Interesting fact: you'll find higher levels of muscle carnosine among sprinters and natural muscle freaks because it is linked to type II fast-twitch muscle fibre activity. Men, generally, also have higher carnosine concentrations than women, most likely because the enzyme that breaks carnosine down is more active in us women.

I had recently started using this product while preparing for the Gauteng North Provincial Champs. I first starting using this when I started to feel extremely sluggish, and not in the mood for the gym at all. Now, I’m not saying that I owe my ‘breakthrough’ to this, however, I am 100% sure this played a huge role in getting me back into the swing of things. I could push harder in the gym and it helped me maintain my muscle mass while I was cutting fat as well

I will most definitely carry on using this product as I head into my off-season after SA Champs, as it has so many benefits. I have even got my dad hooked on it!

Here are a few ways that using Beta-Alanine can benefit you:

  • Boosts explosive muscular strength and power output
  • Increases muscle mass
  • Boosts muscular anaerobic endurance
  • Increases aerobic endurance
  • Increases exercise capacity so you can train harder and longer
