Beta-alanine as CarnoSyn® is a patented beta-alanine molecule. The amino acids occur naturally in the form of alfa-amino acids. Beta-alanine is one of the exceptions. In the beta-alanine molecule the nitrogenous group is not bound to the same carbon atom as the carboxyl group, as it usually occurs in alfa amino acids, but it is positioned one atom away. Beta-alanine plays an essential role in the regulation of the amount of the carnosine, a substance which neutralizes the amount of lactic acid produced in muscles during a high-intensity workout . Beta-alanine is an intracellular buffer capable of buffering the hydrogen ions (stabilizing the pH of the muscles) whereas the said lactic acid is the hydrogen ion donor. The hydrogen ions block the further performance of skeletal muscles by impairing the communication between nervous system and muscle tissue, which results in the breakdown of the process of effective muscle contraction. The beta-alanine has a very long active half-time, which lasts about 40 days. Thus, its capability of concentration in muscles depends not only on the amount but also on the duration of supplementation. According the research, the supplementation of beta-alanine for 10 weeks increases the concentration of carnosine in muscles up to 80%. What does it mean for an athlete? Increasing the carnosine concentration in type II muscle fibres (FTa, FTb – fibres prone to muscle growth) with the use of CarnoSyn® supplementation, improves the capacity of the muscle fibres to absorb an increased number of H+ hydrogen ions produced as the result of the lactic acid formation, thus, providing a balanced pH level.
