Bèta-alanine, Hydrogenated cottonseed oil, Microcrystalline cellulose, Tricalcium phosphate, Silicon dioxide.

The scientific evidence with regard to the effects of oral Bèta-alanine supplementation on physical performance capacity is for the moment still limited. Since 2006, a restricted number of studies, although consistent, have shown that oral ingestion of Bèta-alanine can increase performance capacity during short intensive exercises (30-120sec) that are characterized by a high lactic acid production. Moreover, the observed performance improvement is clearly associated with the degree of increase in carnosine concentration in the muscles. It has also been proven that ingestion of Bèta-alanine can improve sprint performances at the end of a long-duration exercise, without actually having an impact (positive or negative) on endurance performances. Further scientific research is needed to better define the effects of Bèta-alanine intake. A recent study has shown that ingestion of this substance exerts no influence on the effects of power training on muscular strength or muscle mass.

Instructions for use:
3 to 5 tablets per day

One tablet of Bèta-alanine Fast contains 1 gram of pure Bèta-alanine in slow-release form. The dose is about 3 to 5 grams of Bèta-alanine per day (= 3 to 5 tablets per day). The maximum daily dose of 5 grams must under no circumstances be exceeded (= 5 tablets of Bèta-alanine Fast). The tablets should be taken at regular intervals of approximately 3 hours. Never take 2 tablets at once. Intake of Bèta-alanine Fast according to this dose during a period of 4 to 12 weeks results in a substantial increase (>50%) in carnosine concentration in the muscles. Pending further scientific information, we advise not to use Bèta-alanine Fast during more than 10 consecutive weeks. Subsequently, it is recommended to interrupt the intake for at least 10 weeks.
