Beta alanine .: D2-517/2016E-PDF
"B-alanine is a naturally occurring amino acid (a non-essential amino acid) not used by the body to make muscle tissue. Rather, research has shown that B-alanine works by increasing the muscle content of an important compound – carnosine. In fact, the production of carnosine is limited by the availability of B-alanine. Carnosine is highly concentrated in muscle tissue where its role is primarily to soak up hydrogen ions."--What is it?
