ALLNUTRITION – BETA ALANINE is a supplement based on the amino acid beta-alanine with taurine and vitamin B6 (for the flavourless version). Beta alanine is an organic chemical compound from the group of amino acids. It is a powerful precursor of carnosine, which buffers the drop in pH associated with the formation of lactic acid in muscles during exercise. For this reason it is an excellent post-workout supplement, influencing regeneration, reducing physical fatigue and having an anti-catabolic effect.
Beta alanine not only has a huge impact on the reconstruction of damaged muscle tissue, but it also nourishes muscle tissue and increases the contractility of muscle fibres, allowing them to work at a higher intensity, which results in the lengthening and intensification of training. As a result, beta-alanine not only helps reduce catabolism and improve the anabolism of muscle mass, but it also improves efficiency during the training itself, which makes it an ideal supplement during the period of building strength and muscle tissue.
Taurine is a non-protein amino acid containing sulphur with a specific physiological role. It is abundantly present in animal and human tissues, mainly in skeletal muscle, brain and heart. The human body has the ability to synthesise this compound from other amino acids (methionine and cysteine), but some sources suggest that endogenous synthesis may not fully cover the demand for this amino acid. Taurine influences the level of calcium in cells, is responsible for osmoregulation (regulation of the level and concentration of electrolytes and organic acids, water-electrolyte balance), and acts as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. It has an antioxidant effect. It also participates in the synthesis of bile acids, thus indirectly influencing food digestion. Taurine supplementation is recommended for physically and mentally active people, especially athletes in the period around training.
Vitamin B6 helps in correct synthesis of cysteine, helps to maintain correct metabolism of homocysteine, protein and glycogen, contributes to regulation of hormonal activity and maintenance of correct energy metabolism. Moreover, it helps in correct functioning of nervous system and maintenance of correct psychological functions. Vitamin B6 helps in the proper functioning of the immune system and contributes to decreasing feelings of tiredness and lassitude.
ALLNUTRITION Beta-Alanine has been designed for endurance and strength athletes, especially during intensive training.
