The Body Attack Beta Alanine provides the body with amino acids which are synthesised in various body tissues, especially in muscles, to form the natural buffer substance, carnosine. Carnosine
is responsible for a stable pH in the muscles under physical training. This is because the muscles can become acidic during workout, decreasing the pH and causing a burning sensation in the muscles. Should the muscles stay strong, they must have an optimum pH.
Worth knowing: What is carnosine?
Carnosine is found mainly in the muscles. Carnosine stands for the Latin word "Carnis" and means more or less meat. In the daily diet, we take carnosine mainly in the form of white meat (e.g. chicken). It does not occur in plant foods such as whole-grain bread, pasta, etc. Carnosine is also responsible for a stable pH in the muscles under physical training by neutralising the acidic hydrogen ions and the lactic acid resulting in short and intense plyometric workouts.
Meanwhile, the functional properties of carnosine and beta alanine have done their rounds in performance and leisure sports. Therefore, particularly sportsmen subject to short and intense physical strain use such amino acids supplements like Body Attack Beta Alanine. Many sportsmen also combine it with Body Attack 100% Pure Creatine and Body Attack Calcium + Magnesium, as the mentioned nutrients are involved in the energy metabolism (ATP synthesis) and muscle contraction.
Worth knowing: What is beta alanine?
Beta alanine is a non-essential amino acid, which serves as an intermediate carrier in the body and is synthesised in various body tissues to form the natural buffer substance, carnosine. If insufficient amounts of beta alanine amino acid are present in the body, the body cannot synthesise enough carnosine during muscle metabolism. Beta alanine occurs in white meat (e.g. turkey, fish) at low concentrations. In a low-meat and high-carbohydrate diet, the uptake of beta-alanine may be insufficient. Therefore, Beta Alanine from Body Attack may be a useful dietary supplement to the daily diet. Beta alanine can be useful especially for sportsmen who subject their muscles to brief and intense physical strain. For example, for power-endurance athletes, such as sprinters, weightlifters, bodybuilders, martial artists, boxers, swimmers, track and field athletes, ice hockey players, basketball players, etc.
