Beta Alanine

Add to bag & Subscribe

When you perform high-intensity exercise, hydrogen ions surge into your muscles (often referred to as lactic acid buildup), causing the “burn” you’re all too familiar with and hindering muscle performance.

So you rack the weights, slow down, or take a break and try to ignore the thought that if you could just push just a little harder, for a little longer, maybe you could speed up your gains and improve your performance.

At least, that’s how it usually goes—but not if beta alanine has anything to say about it.

Performance Nutrition That Delivers Where It Matters Most

Lactate Clearance. The ability to remove lactic acid from the muscle allows for continued contraction, leading to more reps, and thus more overload, which is key for improvements in strength and muscle gain. One study showed that beta alanine supplementation demonstrated a greater lactate clearance when compared to the placebo.†

Promote Aerobic Performance. Maximal oxygen consumption - the highest rate of oxygen consumption attainable during maximal or exhaustive exercise - is a cornerstone measurement for aerobic performance and overall fitness. When combined with high-intensity aerobic training, beta alanine supplementation was shown to help support endurance over a placebo.†

Increase Resistance Training Volume. Greater resistance training volumes – the amount of reps completed for a given exercise – result in superior increases in muscular size. A study that examined the bench press volumes in football players found that supplementation with beta alanine resulted in increased bench press volumes and lower subjective feelings of fatigue.†

The Onnit Difference: Time-release Formula And A Nutrition Label With Nothing To Hide

There’s no doubt that beta alanine has a place in every athlete or fitness enthusiast’s nutritional strategy, but not all products are created equal. You may have heard or experienced what many athletes describe as a "tingling sensation" from products containing beta alanine. We use a carefully sourced time-release formula that manages to deliver a high caliber of impact to performance with minimal uncomfortable sensations.†

Similarly, while many beta alanine supplements out there are packed full of unwanted fillers (like stearates, corn syrup, and hydrogenated vegetable oils), you won’t find any of that stuff here.

Put simply, Onnit’s beta alanine has been developed with the highest standards, providing the performance you need and the quality you deserve.

Beta Alanine Ingredients & Use

The benefits of beta alanine are delivered by raising muscle carnosine levels over time.† So when you consume it isn’t nearly as important as consistently consuming it each day. However, for convenience, taking beta alanine as part of a pre-workout stack may be beneficial.

For this reason, our beta alanine pairs perfectly with Onnit supplements like Shroom TECH Sport to create a more complete, well-rounded pre-workout stack that will take your workout—and your gains—even further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for high intensity and endurance I have become a huge fan of this product over the past few months. As an endurance athlete, most of my training involves a lot of high intensity training, both in and out of the gym. This product absolutely gives you an edge and helps you to push just a little harder and farther on a daily basis. For me, it took a few weeks of steady use to really notice a difference, but now it’s become a go to for my harder days and long endurance bouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for quality product I think I noticed a difference in muscle recovery after taking this. I take a lot of claims from supplements with a grain of salt and I don't always know what is really working and what is placebo. Been taking this when I trail run for long periods of time. I feel like I noticed a difference but still like I said, not sure if it's the supplement, placebo, what I had for breakfast, the sleep I had the night before, or that I just had a good day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beta Alanine I tried this out while training for an Ultra trail race. After consistent use for about 3 weeks, I saw a noticeable improvement in my endurance. I am experienced at writing my training plans and have run similar ultra's in the past, so I am confident that the increased capacity that I experienced is contributed to this product.
