Why Carnosyn vs Beta Alanine

by Battle Born Supplements on September 30, 2021

What is Beta-Alanine and what does it do?

Beta-alanine is a naturally occurring amino acid that aids in the synthesis of muscle carnosine, which functions as a lactic acid buffer and helps to prevent muscular fatigue and failure. It can also be found in meals like meat and fish. It forms the dipeptide carnosine when it interacts with the amino acid histidine. Carnosine works as a buffer to assist postpone the onset of lactic acid, muscular exhaustion, and failure, while also enhancing endurance and recovery.



What’s The Difference Between Beta-Alanine Vs. Carnosyn? 

CarnoSyn®  notices the athlete in you.  The athlete in you wants to level up, push harder, and break through, whether they are in their prime, taking a break, or somewhere in between. For some, this entails being ripped or shredded. Others seek greater harmony and balance in order to recharge their bodies and minds. 

CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is the only beta-alanine that has successfully obtained New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) status with the FDA, which is a patented ingredient. CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is one of the most thoroughly researched dietary supplements, With 20 global patents, CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is the highest quality beta-alanine available. It is the most common ingredient in sports nutrition formulas. Over 55 different scientific studies on beta-alanine have demonstrated its effectiveness in improving athletic performance, and it contains no banned substances. Out of the 55 clinical studies, 15 of which have been published in peer-reviewed journals.

CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine is on the same path as creatine in terms of scientific evidence proving its performance benefits, with more published peer-reviewed journals proving its efficacy.



Benefits of CarnoSyn® beta- alanine

Tested on a wide range of athletic performance, including sprinting, cycling, rowing, and weight lifting, CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is clinically proven to: 

  • Increase muscle carnosine for prolonged periods*
  • Increase muscle buffering capacity*
  • Decrease acidosis*
  • Improve endurance*
  • Delay fatigue*
  • Increase strength*
  • Speed recovery from intense exercise*
  • Enhance mental focus*


 What's In Your Preworkout? 

Not All Beta Alanine is Created Equal

CarnoSyn® is the only beta-alanine that has successfully earned FDA New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) classification and self-affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe status (GRAS). This great success is due in part to many years and millions of dollars have been invested in scientific research and stringent quality control. You'll always know where your ingredients come from—and that they're safe and effective—because they contain ZERO forbidden substances.

What Do The Studies Say?

CarnoSyn® beta-alanine demonstrated statistically significant delays in muscle fatigue and increases in exercise endurance and peak capacity across a wide span of athletic performance

Athletic Performance

By continuously increasing muscle carnosine through beta alanine supplementation, CarnoSyn® supplementation led to an 80% muscle carnosine increase, after a 58.8% increase was observed at 4 weeks, exercise capacity is improved further in a consequence of muscle carnosine increase.

Total Work Capacity

A 28-day study demonstrated an increase of 14.5% in physical working capacity.

Why we Chose CarnoSyn® beta-alanine

There is a noticeable distinction. We want to use supplements that we believe in. We are also concerned about what we put into our products and what you put into your body. With over 20 peer-reviewed clinical trials, CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is the most trustworthy source of beta-alanine. If your pre-workout or standalone beta-alanine supplement doesn't contain CarnoSyn® beta-alanine , you're putting your health at risk by using a supplement that lacks clinical evidence or validated claims that it improves performance. If you're considering supplementing with Beta-Alanine alone or in a stack, be sure it's produced with CarnoSyn® beta-alanine. As a result, we will always opt for CarnoSyn® beta-alanine over the rest.
