Beta-Alanine for #Strength #Endurance #Muscle #Mass

In the body, beta-alanine combines with another amino acid, histidine, to form carnosine. Muscles with higher levels of carnosine  are more forceful and can provide superior strength, endurance leading to greater mass gains. Studies have shown that subjects taking beta-alanine with creatine gained more muscle and lost more fat than subjects taking just creatine.

Take 2-3g with your pre-workout and post-workout shakes or split evenly with meals.

Beta-Alanine works best with a loading phase starting with about 6 grams spread over two or three doses during the day for the first six days, and then progressing to the maintenance phase, taking in about 3 grams divided into three doses.
