Optimum Nutrition Beta-Alanine
Delay Fatigue, Train Harder & Recover Faster!
During exercise, and especially high-intensity training, glucose and glycogen are broken down for energy. In the process, hydrogen ions (H+) are also produced within the muscles. H+ accumulation causes the muscles to become more acidic and ultimately leads to fatigue. Packed with Beta-Alanine, Histidine, and Phosphates, our Threshold formula is designed to help boost your intramuscular buffering system so that you can train harder, longer.
Although only recently brought to the forefront in the sport supplements industry, beta-alanine was discovered over 100 years ago. Also known as 3-aminopropanoic acid, beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid and is the only naturally occurring beta-amino acid. Not to be confused with alanine, beta-alanine is classified as a non-proteinogenic amino acid as it is not used in the building of proteins. The greatest sources of the natural dietary supplement beta-alanine are believed to be obtained through ingesting the beta-alanine containing dipeptides: carnosine, anserine and balenine, rather than directly ingesting beta-alanine. These dipeptides are commonly found in protein rich foods such as chicken, beef, pork and fish.
