Our 100% Beta-Alanine Amino Acid is a pure form of the amino acid, beta alanine, that is perfect for adding to your daily protein shake.
What is beta alanine?
Beta alanine is a non-essential amino acid and is the only naturally-occurring beta amino acid.
Beta alanine is different from most amino acids, as it is not used to synthesise proteins. Instead, it produces carnosine, which is stored in your skeletal muscles and reduces the build-up of lactic acid in your muscles during training.
What are non-essential amino acids?
The definition of non-essential comes from the fact that your body can produce these amino acids, and so they are considered non-essential to your diet.
Amino acids occur naturally in protein, which supports the growth and maintenance of your muscle mass1 — super important whatever your fitness goals.
When to take 100% Beta-Alanine Amino Acid?
We recommend that you add 1.5g to water, juice, or your usual protein shake twice a day, preferably between meals.
What does 100% Beta-Alanine Amino Acid work well with?
For a boost of amino acids and whey protein at the same time, try taking our 100% Beta-Alanine Amino Acid with a shake of our bestselling Impact Whey Protein — available in over 50 delicious flavours.
