Bowmar Nutrition Beta alanine is a non-essential amino acid. However, unlike other amino acids, it is not used by our body to synthesize protein. Along with histidine (another amino acid), carnosine is produced. Carnosine is a molecule that is stored in your muscles.
During exercise, carnosine reduces lactic acid accumulation which can lead to improved training performance. Carnosine is vital in endurance and performance. As beta alanine supplements increase those levels, it may help your muscles reduce their acid levels during training therefore reducing fatigue and burnout.
