Background: Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid and a component of carnosine, which is found in human muscles. Scientific studies have found high levels of carnosine in the muscles of athletes who participate in high intensity sporting competitions. Important: Beta-Alanine is not a sole source of nutrition and should be consumed in conjunction with a nutritious diet and in conjunction with an appropriate physical training or exercise program. Symptoms of paraesthaesia or an itchy tingling feeling may occur if consumed in high doses of 10 mg/kg body weight, but this is not found to be toxic. If symptoms persist longer than 90 minutes, however unlikey, please contact your medical practitioner. Not suitable for children under 15 years of age or pregnant women. Should only be used under medical or dietetic supervision. Store below 30°C in a cool, dry place.
