Max CarnoSyn® is the only patented and scientifically proven form of beta-alanine for human performance. Max CarnoSyn® is Beta-Alanine (as CarnoSyn®), licensed under Natural Alternatives International, Inc. global estate. It has 21 global patents and supported by over 44 scientific studies of which 41 have been published proving it increases muscle hypertrophy, strength, power output, proton buffering and as an anti-catabolic agent.
Beta-alanine is a naturally occurring beta-amino acid and combines with the amino acid L-histidine to make carnosine in humans. Not to be confused with carnitine, carnosine is highly concentrated in muscle and brain tissues and has many important biochemical and physiological functions. Most important, the availability of beta-alanine is the rate-limiting step for the synthesis of carnosine.
In muscles, carnosine is concentrated in the “fast-twitch” (Type II) fibers and functions to increase the pH and buffering capacity as a result of the accumulation of lactic acid and the subsequent release of hydrogen/proton ions (H+) during high-intensity exercise. Intramuscular acidosis is the main cause of fatigue during intense exercise. Beta-Alanine (as CarnoSyn®) is a powerful and effective ergogenic aid and intracellular antioxidant. Published scientific evidence has proven Beta-Alanine (as CarnoSyn®) to increase muscle carnosine by 80% resulting in increases in muscle strength, muscle power, decreases in acidosis, improvements in muscle endurance, delays fatigue during workouts, supports nitric oxide (NO) production and improves overall workout performance.
Max CarnoSyn® is the best of muscle science to build a better muscle.
