Supplements That Don’t Suck- Beta-Alanine - May 19th 2019

Like you never took a few scoops of N.O.-Xplode before a night out at the bars???

In my early 20s, I took the bait supplement companies were dangling and spent a lot of cash on products that were supposed to build me a freak physique. All they did was take my dollars and kick me in the nuts for the effort!

I wont let you make the same mistake.

Some supplements actually do provide benefits in the gym, most don’t. Todays article is all about the mighty supplement Beta-Alanine.

When we train, acidity levels in the muscles rise and cause fatigue. Carnosine is a molecule that helps buffer the rise in acidity as we train, Beta-alanine is the building block of Carnosine which makes it pretty important. Increasing Carnosine levels should, in theory, help buffering capacity.

In short, supplementing with Beta-alanine should help you perform those painful, extra reps you need to continue improving.

Beta-alanine has also been shown to help during high-intensity endurance exercise lasting 1-5 minutes.

The only side effect of note is the tingling feeling that comes with large doses. While it may be irritating, it seems harmless.

The recommended dosage, according to examine.com, is 2-5 g. per day. Regardless of what supplement companies say, there does not appear to be a specific time of day to consume Beta-alanine. This is important because it allows you to take smaller doses throughout the day if the tingly side effect is a little bit too much to bear.

I wont ever speak in absolutes when it comes to supplements because there is always new research coming out and what is safe today might be classified as deadly in 6 months.Besides, I spend so much time apologizing for being wrong in every other facet of my life, I don’t really want to have to apologize too much here!

Beta-alanine appears to deliver the goods with no dangerous side effects!
