- AllMax Beta-Alanine Review Review by AstroNutrition In-House Review
Research studies have found that muscle carnosine levels directly relate to athletic performance. This includes higher levels improving performance in Type II muscle fiber exercises and aerobic exercise.
The research studies also validate the beta alanine supplements claim that using it improves muscle carnosine. This improvement has also been proven to help with athletic performance and endurance.
The data shows that an optimum dosage is between 4.5 and 6 grams daily of beta alanine.
The only known side effect of beta alanine is an itching or tingling sensation in the extremeties that is not dangerous and usually lessens in severity over time. No long term studies have been done, but studies as long as 8 weeks reported no adverse effects.
The best way to supplement with beta alanine is to take a supplement that just contains beta alanine. This way you know how much of it you are getting to ensure you get enough to be effective. Many supplements that contain more than just beta alanine include it only as label dressing and in too low of doses to be effective.
Using beta alanine can help improve your athletic performance to the next level. Its effectiveness and safety are both backed up by plenty of scientific data. (Posted on 2/18/11)
