I am 61 years old doing cardio boxing classes with people usually half my age or younger. Beta Alanine has had a huge impact on my ability to keep up. I weigh 185 lean pounds and take 2-4 mg with some juice before workout. I then take another 2mg an hour of so after the class. I don't think I could do what I am doing without this help.

This is the only supplement that prevents lactic acid build-up in the muscles during exercise. I am doing the Brawn work-out and have been able to fully recover in 3 days without the muscle soreness and have increased my reps or weights with each work-out. If taken on an empty stomach I have experienced alot of flushing, hot flashes. The synthesize product at Vitamin world seems to work best, yet ... Show Full Comment

The description of this amino is vauge and needs to be updated. Anyone wishing to know more, please go to http://www.beta-alanine.net I have been using this product and it has proven to be one of the best, and least expensive supplements I have ever used! If you are interested in muscular performance and limiting the lactic acid/hydrogen factor, this is the one product to date that can help.
