Supplement of the Month: Beta Alanine
Beta Alanine, a popular supplement that’s been shown to enhance performance among athletes, is a naturally occurring amino acid in the body that plays a role in delaying muscle fatigue and improving endurance in anaerobic style training (sprints, weights, power).
Research is slightly mixed as to the wether Beta Alanine is effective at buffering the anaerobic system in the body, but show promise as a supplement that could enhance anaerobic training (strength building).
