HealthVit Beta Alanine Powder is the ultimate fitness partner. Beta-alanine in the supplement is a non-essential amino acid that can provide a whole host of various health and fitness benefits. It is actually a building block for another amino acid known as carnosine, which is a dipeptide that assists with the removal and buffering of harmful by products in human cells, including lactic acid. It is used for improving athletic performance and exercise capacity, building lean muscle mass, and improving physical functioning in the elderly. Chiefly useful in increasing the longevity of endurance when doing any sort of physical activity, it allows the person taking it to exercise much longer and thus increase the muscle mass or burn the fat much more efficiently. It indirectly helps to widen the blood vessels via L-Carnosine, which increases blood flow during long bouts of exercise.
