Beta-Alanine is considered to be the "new creative" in sports performance; not because it can replace the proven strength or muscle builder, but because it is proven to boost performance and muscular endurance for high intensity exercise. Whereas creative is considered ideal for boosting absolute strength, Beta-Alanine is considered ideal for the higher intensity rep ranges because of its ability to buffer lactic acid. Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is used by muscle cells to synthesize carnosine which functions as a buffer for the hydrogen ions (acid) produced during strenuous exercise, thus helping to maintain optimum muscular pH. Clinical studies suggest that Beta-Alanine supplementation can delay muscle fatigue.

- Health Notes
Alanine is a "nonessential" amino acid-which means it is not manufactured by the body, so it is important to get alanine through food or supplements, as the body needs it to build proteins.
