Powerful Support for Endurance
- Clinically Validated to Significantly Increase Carnosine Levels
- Shown to Help Reduce Fatigue
- 100% Sourced With Premium Grade CarnoSyn® Brand Beta Alanine, The World's Best
- Helps Augment Energy Levels During Intense Workouts
Most exercise physiologists agree that to increase strength and muscle mass it is essential to reduce fatigue during workouts, and one way that may help is beta alanine supplementation. This precursor to carnosine synthesis has been shown to elevate muscle carnosine levels by more than 60% in clinical studies. This is important to your routine because increased muscle carnosine levels are associated with increased energy production and workout capacity.
Offset Fatigue and Promote Greater Training
Quality with CaroSyn® Sourced Beta Alanine
Beta alanine improves exercise performance by increasing the amount of carnosine in your muscle. Carnosine, in turn, is a powerful buffer that effectively limits the amount of lactic acid that accumulates inside your muscles during a workout. Validation for beta alanine’s capacity for postponing fatigue and maximizing performance arrived recently in the form of a “position stand” written by sport nutrition experts associated with the International Society of Sports Nutrition (Trexler et al. 2015).
In the publication, the authors concluded that 4 to 6 grams of beta alanine separated into multiple doses throughout the day (over at least two, but ideally four weeks) is optimal for improving and maximizing the capacity to perform exercise. It is also important to supplement with a superior-quality source of pure and potent beta alanine. In this case, the choice is clearly CarnoSyn® beta alanine, universally recognized as the world's best. Several studies using CarnoSyn®, the same beta-alanine contained in ProSource-brand Beta Alanine, are found within the definitive position stand cited above. For example, CarnoSyn® supplementation has been shown to improve muscle endurance during high-intensity running (Smith et al. 2009). CarnoSyn® increases the buffering capacity of muscle creating a barrier for fatigue (Derave et al. 2007) and increases the working capacity of muscle (Stout et al. 2006).
Beta Alanine Supplementation and Increased Work Output
A number of other published, well-controlled scientific studies have indicated that beta alanine supplementation (and consequent up-regulation of muscle carnosine levels) is an effective dietary strategy to improve and maximize the performance of intense, maximal exercise, especially workouts or protocols that involve longer exercise bouts or repeated exercise bouts with limited recovery.
An article published in 2012 took the approach of summarizing a large group of studies already published on beta alanine. This article considered several different patterns of supplementation and involved over 350 research subjects. When all of these measures were considered, the authors concluded that beta alanine significantly improved outcome measures when compared to a placebo. In particular, beta alanine improved and maximized the capacity to perform maximal exercise in both the short and longer (1 to 4 minutes) term.
To support real muscle growth, you must increase the total volume of work performed. To do that, you have to precision-target the chemical processes in muscle tissue that negatively impact endurance. In short, if fatigue is the problem, beta alanine is the solution. ProSource’s Beta Alanine is 100% sourced with CarnoSyn® brand carnitine, well-established as the gold standard in the industry, and reliably pure and potent to ensure maximum efficacy. Go hard and go long with CarnoSyn®-based ProSource Beta Alanine!

Product QuestionsWould this be a good supplement to stack with BCAA and Glutamine before and/or after workout? Also, it shows out of stock. When will more be available?Question by: Jeremy on Jun 15, 2015 12:39:00 AMBeta Alanine would be great to stack with BCAA's and glutamine pre-workout. Post workout i would take your BCAA's and glutamine but not beta alanine. And our beta alanine is in stock. Here's the link: http://www.prosource.net/beta-alanine-powder-200-grams.htmlAnswer by: Kelly Conklin (Admin) on Mar 16, 2016 12:34:00 PM
Directions: Take one serving 20-30 minutes prior to workout, with juice or pre-workout drink, and one more serving sometime during the day. Take one serving twice daily on non-training days as well, with or without food. Begin with one-half serving twice daily to assess your tolerance as beta alanine may produce a slight and harmless flushing and/or prickly sensation that will subside within minutes of use.
