What is Beta-alanine?

Pre-workout supplement facts

The tingly ingredient in STAMINA

Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid, which means it is produced naturally in the body.

When beta-alanine activates with another amino acid, l-histidine, it's condensed into carnosine, which plays a role in muscular endurance in high-intensity exercise.

Carnosine will act as a buffer to protect skeletal muscles during extreme exercise. It does this by regulating acid buildup in the muscles, a primary cause of muscle fatigue.

Some people experience a tingling sensation for a few minutes up to an hour as a side effect of beta-alanine, while others don't feel it at all. Not to worry, this is normal and safe.

Scientists don't have a definitive answer for the cause of the tingling. One theory suggests that beta-alanine can stimulate your nerve endings. It activates  G-protein-coupled receptors, which are responsible for transmitting signals throughout your central nervous system and on the skin, causing a tingle and itch!
