Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is used by muscle cells to synthesize Carnosine. Carnosine is a dipeptide (Beta-Alanine plus Histidine) that 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 increase muscle Carnosine content and delay muscle fatigue.

Contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by extra pep helps me get extra reps with my exercises when I dont use dont have same energy levels May 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crazy Feeling Beta-Alanine might be my favorite out of any of the supplements I take. The "burn" you feel is wild. I can't really tell if it actually gives your muscles an increase in endurance because of the altered pH levels, but it is GUARANTEED to give you boost if taken as a pre-workout drink, and hence why it is often found in pre-workout mixes. Get this if you're on the fence. Can't go wrong. August 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gives you an extra boost Beta-Alanine gives you a good burst of energy on the last rep or two of a heavy weight workout. I prefer the powder, because it gets absorbed by the body more quickly (so I can take it closer to the workout). This is a good price for it. April 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value!!! Swanson has the best price I've found. April 7, 2012
