The tingly ingredient in STAMINA.
What is it?
Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid produced naturally in the body. While amino acids are usually the building blocks of proteins, beta-alanine works to make other chemicals in the body.
How does it work?
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. This theory suggests that beta-alanine can stimulate your nerve endings by activating G-protein-coupled receptors. These are responsible for transmitting signals throughout your central nervous system and on the skin, causing a tingle and itch!
- Reduces fatigue
- Increases endurance
- Boosts performance in high-intensity exercises
A full scoop of STAMINA contains 2g of beta-alanine.
