BETA: Improve Muscle Endurance, Muscle Recovery And Reduce Lactic Acid Burn



High Quality Naturally Occurring (primarily in meat) Amino Acid Scientifically Shown to Improve Endurance and Recovery.

Proven Nutrition’s BETA contains ultra-high purity Beta-Alanine from a non-meat source. When used daily, the active ingredient in BETA has been scientifically shown to:

  • Improve Muscle Endurance
  • Reduce (Buffer) Lactic Acid Burn
  • Increase Muscle Recovery

Beta-alanine supplementation has been scientifically shown to benefit both strength and cardiovascular performance, particularly long duration and/or high intensity intervals by the follow mechanisms:

  • Providing a precursor to carnosine in the muscle.
    • Carnosine is stored until muscle pH becomes acidic, at that point carnosine is released from storage to buffer muscle acids such as lactic acid.
    • Carnosine reduces oxidative damage to proteins to improve recovery.
  • Beta-alanine supplementation increases the amount of stored carnosine in a few weeks of regular use.
  • Beta-alanine supplementation appears to provide the most benefit for novice and highly trained athletes when exercise durations exceed 60 minutes.

Beta-alanine supplementation may be particularly important for those on a limited or no-meat diet (Vegetarian and Vegan) since the primary dietary source of beta-alanine is from meat.

Interestingly, beta-alanine supplementation appears to have an anti-aging effect in muscle tissue thought to be due to its ability to protect the cells from oxidative damage.
