The product is recommended in cases of an increased need of Beta Alanine, in particular for sportsmen and women who take part in intense physical activity. Beta Alanine is a precursor to Carnosine. Beta-Alanine is a nonessential amino acid that is used by muscle cells to synthesise Carnosine, a dipeptide consisting of Beta-Alanine plus L-Histidine. Carnosine is found in high concentrations in skeletal muscle, and is mainly located in fast twitch (Type II) muscle fibres. Increasing Carnosine in muscles through supplementation has a growing popularity among bodybuilders and trained athletes.
