    Η β-αλανίνη μπορεί να προκαλέσει παραισθησία όταν λαμβάνεται σε δόσεις πάνω από 10 mg/kg σωματικού βάρους.
    Αυτό όμως κυμαίνεται ανάμεσα στα διαφορετικά άτομα. Ας πούμε σε ορισμένα πιο ευαίσθητα, τα συμπτώματα γίνονται αισθητά από τα 10 mg/kg, στην πλειοψηφία γίνονται αισθητά από τα 20 mg/kg και μερικά πιο ανθεκτικά χρειάζονται συγκέντρωση 40mg/kg, για να αρχίσουν να νοιώθουν τα συμπτώματα υπεβολικής δόσης...δεν νομίζω να συμβαίνει το ίδιο και στην κρεατίνη πάντως...
    SHUT UP AND SQUAT!!!!!

    Η σκόνη περνά στο αίμα άμεσα. Οι κάψουλες, πρέπει πρώτα να διαλυθούν στο στομάχι, για να απελευθερώσουν την αλανίνη.

    Καλησπέρα σε όλη την παρέα !
    Σκέφτομαι τώρα τελευταία να αγοράσω Β-αλανίνη μιάς και το προεξασκητικό μου φτάνει στο τέλος του και έχω κάποιες ερωτήσεις.
    1) Καταρχήν η αλανίνη σκέτη σου δίνει κάποιο boost όπως κάνει το νιτρικό; Θα έιχα καλύτερα αποτελέσματα να την συνδυάσω με κάποιο προεξασκητικό μαζί; ή είναι too much?
    2) Τα αποτελέσματα έρχονται σταδιακά; π.χ. περισσότερη αντοχή πάνω στην προπόνηση θα δώ εν καιρό;
    3) Aπο ότι είδα μπορούμε να την συνδιάσουμε μαζί με κρεατίνη, οπότε μπορώ να λαμβάνω την αλανίνη πρίν την προπόνηση (και πόση ώρα πρίν) και την κρεατίνη μαζι με την πρωτείνη μου αμέσως μετά;
    4) Μπορώ να λαμβάνω την αλλανίνη και σε non training μέρες;
    Ευχαριστώ πολύ :)

    Καλησπέρα.Έψαξα αρκετά για να καταλάβω ποια είναι η κατάλληλη ποσότητα και δεν έβγαλα άκρη.Συγκεκριμένα έχω πάρει την αλανίνη του πορτογάλου και λέει στις οδηγίες 2γρ 4-6 φορές την μέρα.Μου φαίνεται υπερβολικό.ερωτήσεις:
    1)Παίρνουμε κάθε μέρα ακόμα και rest days?
    2)Για πόσο καιρό παίρνουμε?
    3)Πόσο παίρνουμε τις rest days και πότε?
    4)Πόσο παίρνουμε τις ημέρες προπόνησης και πόση ώρα πριν την προπόνηση?

    Ευχαριστώ προκαταβολικά.

    Παίρνεις κάθε μέρα, ακόμα και τις οφ μέρες, 4-6 γρ.

    Τις πρώτες 7 μέρες παίρνε 6 γρ και μετά ρίξε το στα 4-5 γρ.

    Δε χρειάζεται κύκλο. Παίρνε την 30 λεπτά πριν την προπόνηση ή στο πρωινό σου γεύμα (τις οφ μέρες).

    Μια ακομη φρεσκια και πολυ ενδιαφερουσα ερευνα για τη β-αλανινη και τις δοσολογιες για αυξημενη καρνοσινη.

    The Beta-Alanine Dose for Maintaining Moderately Elevated Muscle Carnosine Levels
    Stegen, Sanne; Bex, Tine; Vervaet, Chris; Vanhee, Lander; Achten, Eric; Derave, Wim
    Published Ahead-of-Print

    Introduction:
    Chronic beta-alanine (BA) supplementation is an increasingly popular nutritional strategy, because it can elevate muscle carnosine content and thereby enhance high-intensity exercise performance. The current study investigates 1) whether sex and body mass are determinants of BA induced muscle carnosine loading, and 2) the optimal maintenance dose for ensuring constantly elevated muscle carnosine stores.

    Methods: During the loading phase, 34 participants (men and women) were supplemented with 3.2g (4x800 mg) BA/day for 46 days (slightly different loading strategies were applied concerning the effect of meal-timing and supplementation form). Thereafter, 19 participants (men and women) continued taking free-powder BA for 6 more weeks (maintenance phase). The participants were matched and re-divided into three groups respectively receiving 0.4g BA/day, 0.8g BA/day and 1.2g BA/day. Muscle carnosine content was measured in m. soleus and m. gastrocnemius using 1H-MRS.

    Results: Body mass and sex had only minimal effect on the absolute increase in muscle carnosine. Given the lower baseline values of women, the relative increase for women was higher, indicating that women require less BA for the same relative increase. In addition, a significant negative correlation was observed between body mass and the relative increase in muscle carnosine (r=-0.45, p=0.007). A maintenance dose of ~1.2 g BA/day, was most effective to keep muscle carnosine content elevated at post-supplementation level.

    Conclusion: Sex and body mass do not markedly affect the absolute increase during muscle carnosine loading, although they are determinants for the relative increase. Additionally, we established for the first time an effective maintenance dose of ~1.2g BA/day to keep muscle carnosine content elevated at 30-50% above baseline for a prolonged period.
    "Just remember that you are doing something that so few people in the world have the will power or determination to do. It takes much more than physical strength for us to build and sculpt our bodies. It takes an enormous amount of mental strength as well, and that's what people are truly jealous of. Take it as a compliment, for you stand out in a crowd full of followers."

    "You got a dream, you gotta protect it. If people can't do something themselves, they wanna tell you that you can't do it. If you want something, go get it. Period." ~ Chris Gardner

    Εγώ πήρα ΄σημερα πρώτη φορά και μετά 20' ξεκίνηαα το αερόβιο. Ένιωσα σαν να πήρα ναρκωτικό. Σα να βγήκα από το σώμα μου και δεν ένιωθα καμιά καταπόνηση.
    Hiit με πολύ δυνατό σπριντ και κλίση και δεν καταλάβαινα χριστό. Ανεβαζα, ανέβαζα. Αυτό που είδα ήταν ότι ανέβαζα πολύ αργά παλμούς, λες και έκανα απλό τρεξιματάκι. ϊδρωσα πολύ αλλά ούτε κούραση ούτε λαχανιάσματα. Θα μπορούσα να εκτελώ τη διαλειματική για 1 ώρα αλλά στα 40' σταμάτησα για να ετοιμάσω εαυτόν κάι τέκνα.
    I may not be there yet... But I am closer than I was yesterday. And my coach, professional Paris Nicolaou is suporting me!

    Μια πολυ καλη μελετη για τα καλα της β-αλανινης σε προπονουμενους και μη!

    Influence of training status on high-intensity intermittent performance in response to β-alanine supplementation
    Vitor de Salles Painelli, Bryan Saunders, Craig Sale, Roger Charles Harris, Marina Y?zigi Solis, Hamilton Roschel, Bruno Gualano, Guilherme Giannini Artioli,corresponding author and Antonio Herbert Lancha Jr.

    Recent investigations have suggested that highly trained athletes may be less responsive to the ergogenic effects of β-alanine (BA) supplementation than recreationally active individuals due to their elevated muscle buffering capacity. We investigated whether training status influences the effect of BA on repeated Wingate performance. Forty young males were divided into two groups according to their training status (trained: T, and non-trained: NT cyclists) and were randomly allocated to BA and a dextrose-based placebo (PL) groups, providing four experimental conditions: NTPL, NTBA, TPL, TBA. BA (6.4 g day?1) or PL was ingested for 4 weeks, with participants completing four 30-s lower-body Wingate bouts, separated by 3 min, before and after supplementation. Total work done was significantly increased following supplementation in both NTBA (p = 0.03) and TBA (p = 0.002), and it was significantly reduced in NTPL (p = 0.03) with no difference for TPL (p = 0.73). BA supplementation increased mean power output (MPO) in bout 4 for the NTBA group (p = 0.0004) and in bouts 1, 2 and 4 for the TBA group (p ? 0.05). No differences were observed in MPO for NTPL and TPL. BA supplementation was effective at improving repeated high-intensity cycling performance in both trained and non-trained individuals, highlighting the efficacy of BA as an ergogenic aid for high-intensity exercise regardless of the training status of the individual.

    Introduction

    Carnosine (β-alanyl-l-histidine) is a cytoplasmic dipeptide found in high concentrations in the skeletal muscle of vertebrates and non-vertebrates, as well as in the central nervous system. Carnosine may play multiple roles in muscle, such as antioxidant (Boldyrev et al. 1993) and anti-glycant (Hipkiss et al. 1995). In addition, recent studies have shown that increased carnosine content in muscle fibres may improve the Ca2+ sensitivity of the contractile apparatus and enhance Ca2+ release from sarcoplasmic reticulum when Ca2+ release is inhibited, such as during fatigue (Dutka et al. 2012). However, it is undisputed that intramuscular pH buffering is a major function of carnosine, a consequence of the pKa of the imidazole ring of carnosine being 6.83 (Bate-Smith 1938).

    Harris et al. (2006) showed that β-alanine (BA) availability is the rate-limiting factor for carnosine synthesis in skeletal muscle and that β-alanine supplementation is able to increase the intramuscular content of carnosine. After this seminal study by Harris and colleagues, several investigations have examined the ergogenic effects of β-alanine supplementation on exercise performance and capacity [for a review, see Sale et al. (2013)] and a recent meta-analysis concluded that supplementation significantly improves exercise capacity, but not sport-related performance (Hobson et al. 2012). The body of evidence surrounding the ergogenic effects of β-alanine supplementation is increasing; however, the majority of studies that have shown a positive effect have used recreationally active participants. Although some studies have shown positive effects of β-alanine on trained athletes (Tobias et al. 2013; Salles Painelli et al. 2013; Van Thienen et al. 2009; Derave et al. 2007), several investigations have shown no improvements or marginal effects (Derave et al. 2007; Baguet et al. 2010; Saunders et al. 2012; Hobson et al. 2013; Ducker et al. 2013; Chung et al. 2012; Howe et al. 2014). As such, the ergogenic effects of β-alanine in athletes are less clear than in non-trained individuals. In addition, some authors speculate that athletes might be less responsive to β-alanine supplementation (Bellinger et al. 2012; Bellinger 2014).

    It has been shown that trained athletes have an elevated muscle buffering capacity as an adaptation to exercise training (Weston et al. 1997; Edge et al. 2006a, b). Since most studies that recruited athletes have failed to demonstrate an ergogenic effect of β-alanine, it has been speculated that this may be due to the already increased buffering capacity in highly trained individuals, limiting the measurable effect of increased carnosine content through β-alanine supplementation (Bellinger et al. 2012; Bellinger 2014). Although athletic populations are likely to be the most interested in the ergogenic effects of β-alanine, it remains unclear to what extent these highly trained individuals can benefit from supplementation. No study to date has directly compared whether athletes respond differently to β-alanine supplementation in comparison to non-trained recreationally active individuals.

    Therefore, to gather knowledge on the potential differential responses to β-alanine supplementation between trained and non-trained participants, the aim of this study was to investigate whether training status influences the ergogenic effect of β-alanine supplementation on repeated Wingate performance using both trained and non-trained cyclists.

    Methods

    Forty young male individuals participated in this study. They were allocated to two groups according to their training status (endurance-trained cyclists: N = 20; non-trained individuals: N = 20). Participants were further randomly allocated to the β-alanine and placebo (PL) groups, matched for total work done (TWD) measured during the habituation session. One trained cyclist withdrew from the study due to injury, meaning that 19 trained cyclists were included in the final data set. The cyclists were all actively involved in structured training programs and, although endurance training formed a large part of their training routine, all athletes also undertook regular sprint training. Thirteen of these athletes were competing at national level and the remaining six athletes were participating in state-level official competitions at the time of data collection. The non-trained participants were recreationally active individuals who engaged in a variety of activities (e.g., weightlifting, running, team sports) 1?3 times per week. Participant characteristics, experience and weekly training volumes at the moment they initiated the study are presented in Table 1. The ability to perform high-intensity intermittent exercise was clearly different between the trained and the non-trained groups (Table 2).


    Participants were required not to have taken any creatine supplement for 3 months prior to the study and had not taken β-alanine for at least 6 months prior to the study. Participants were also requested to maintain similar levels of physical activity and dietary intake for the duration of the study and compliance with this request was verbally confirmed with participants prior to commencement of the study. Participants were fully informed of any risks and discomforts associated with the study before completing a health screen and providing written consent. The study was approved by the Ethical Advisory Committee from the School of Physical Education and Sport, University of Sao Paulo (Approval Number: 2011/15).
    Experimental design

    Participants attended the laboratory on three separate occasions. The first visit was for protocol habituation, with the remaining two visits for the completion of the main trials. One main trial was completed before and one main trial following a 4 week double-blind supplementation period of either β-alanine or placebo. As such, the study comprised four experimental conditions: non-trained + placebo (NTPL, N = 10), non-trained + β-alanine (NTBA, N = 10), trained + placebo (TPL, N = 9) and trained + β-alanine (TBA, N = 10).

    Participants were supplemented for 4 weeks with either 6.4 g day?1 BA (CarnoSyn?, Compound Solutions Inc.?, CA, USA) or an equivalent amount of placebo capsules (dextrose; Ethika Inc.?, S?o Paulo, Brazil). This dosing regimen has been proven to be effective in increasing muscle carnosine content over 2 (Stellingwerff et al. 2012) and 4 weeks (Harris et al. 2006), and it is ~10?20 times higher than the average β-alanine intake from food, as calculated for the participants of the present study (results are shown in Table 3). The participants took two 800-mg gelatin capsules four times per day at 3?4 h intervals. Carboxymethyl cellulose was added to the β-alanine capsules (100 mg per 800 mg of β-alanine) in order to slow the absorption of β-alanine and minimize paraesthesia. Participants received exactly 4 weeks? worth of supplement in a sealed, unmarked container, and compliance was monitored by verifying the remaining contents of the container upon return to the lab following the supplementation period. The degree of compliance was reported to be 100 % in all groups.

    Preliminary testing

    Height and body mass were recorded upon arrival at the laboratory. The exercise protocol required participants to complete 4 bouts of a modified lower-body cycling Wingate test (Inbar and Bar-Or 1986), using a specifically designed ergometer (Biotec 2100, Cefise, Brazil). The position on the cycle ergometer was determined prior to the habituation session, recorded and maintained for all subsequent trials. The participants? feet were securely attached to the pedals using toe clips and straps. Participants warmed up for 5 min on the ergometer prior to the first bout, against no resistance. On completion of the warm up, the test began immediately from a static start. Each Wingate bout lasted 30 s and participants were required to cycle against a load set at 5 % of body mass, which was measured with a digital scale to the nearest 10 g. This 5 % load was chosen over the original 7.5 % load in order to allow the non-trained participants to complete the entire 4-bout protocol. Bouts were interspersed by 3-min passive recovery, with all the participants being seated during this recovery period. Standardised verbal encouragement was given throughout every bout. Upon completion of the test, the resistance was removed and the participants were instructed to continue cycling at a self-selected cadence to facilitate recovery. A set of 24 sensors measured wheel velocity, with power output being calculated automatically every second by computer software (Ergometric 6.0, Cefise, Brazil). Mean power (MPO, W) and peak power (PPO, W) output were obtained for each bout and TWD (J) was obtained for the overall test session. Performance decrement was measured as the percentage loss in work done from the 1st to the 4th bout. The coefficient of variation for TWD in the non-trained and the trained groups was 2.42 ± 1.86 and 1.78 ± 1.27 %, respectively.

    Main trials

    Participants were requested to abstain from alcohol and strenuous exercise in the 24-h period prior to the main trials. Participants arrived at the laboratory in at least 2 h following their last meal, and immediately began their warm up followed by the 4-bout lower-body cycling Wingate test. Ad libitum water consumption was allowed during the main trials. To control for intervening variables, food intake was assessed during the supplementation period by means of three 24-h dietary recalls undertaken on separate days (2 weekdays and 1 weekend day), with the aid of a visual photo album of real-sized foods and portions. Nutritional supplements were also recorded. Energy and macronutrient intakes were analysed by the software Virtual Nutri? (S?o Paulo, Brazil). The intake of β-alanine from fish and red meats containing carnosine and its related derivatives was estimated from the data of Jones et al. (2011).
    Statistical analyses

    All data are presented as mean ± SD and were analysed using the SAS statistical package, (SAS version 9.2). A one-way ANOVA, with Group (i.e. NTPL, NTBA, TPL and TBA) as a fixed factor, was used to compare the participant characteristics and baseline performance between groups. The mixed models for repeated measures were used to examine the effect of supplementation on TWD, with Group and Time (i.e. pre-supplementation, post-supplementation) as fixed factors. To mitigate the impact of inter-individual data variability, all TWD values were converted into delta scores (i.e., POST-PRE values) and thereafter tested by a mixed model assuming ?pre values? as a covariate. The mixed models were also performed to examine the effect of supplementation on MPO and PPO, with Group, Time and Bout (i.e. bout 1, bout 2, bout 3, bout 4) as fixed factors. Tukey tests were used for post hoc analyses and effect sizes were calculated using Cohen?s d. Statistical significance was accepted at p ? 0.05, with a trend towards significance being accepted at p ? 0.1.

    Effects of β-alanine supplementation regardless of training status

    There was no difference in TWD between placebo and β-alanine groups prior to supplementation (placebo: 50,773 ± 7,349 J; β-alanine: 52,538 ± 6,283 J; p = 0.44). There was a significant interaction effect of Group ? Time on TWD (F = 16.48; p = 0.0002); following supplementation, TWD was increased by 1,663 ± 1,457 J in the β-alanine group (p = 0.0004) and decreased by 832 ± 2,308 J in the placebo group (p = 0.07; Fig. 1a). A total of 17 out of the 20 participants supplemented with β-alanine improved TWD following supplementation; 8 out of the 10 participants in the NTBA improved their performance, while 9 out of the 10 in the TBA group showed improved performance (Fig. 2a). On the other hand, only 10 out of the 19 participants supplemented with placebo improved TWD following supplementation; 5 out of the 10 participants in the NTPL improved their performance, while 5 out of the 9 in the TPL group showed improved performance (Fig. 2b).

    Effects of β-alanine supplementation in trained versus non-trained subjects

    Prior to supplementation, performance decrement from the 1st to the 4th Wingate bout was 32.3 ± 6.6 and 33.1 ± 8.5 % for the NTPL and the NTBA groups, respectively, with no differences between these two groups (p > 0.05). For the trained athletes, prior to the supplementation period, the performance decrement in the Wingate was 11.6 ± 7.9 and 12.3 ± 5.0 % for the TPL and the TBA, respectively (p > 0.05). Performance decrement for the NTPL and the NTBA groups was significantly higher when compared with both the TPL and the TBA groups (all p < 0.05).

    TWD did not differ within the non-trained (NTPL: 47,913 ± 5,313 J and NTBA: 50,274 ± 6,765 J; p = 0.43) and trained groups (TPL: 53,951 ± 8,258 J and TBA: 54,802 ± 5,119 J; p = 0.78) prior to supplementation. TWD was significantly increased following supplementation in both the NTBA (+1,349 ± 1,411 J; p = 0.03) and TBA groups (+1,978 ± 1,508 J; p = 0.002), and it was significantly reduced in the NTPL (?1,385 ± 2,815 J; p = 0.03) with no significant difference being shown in the TPL group (?219 ± 1,507 J; p = 0.73). Analysis of covariance revealed that absolute change in TWD in both supplemented groups was significantly higher than in their respective placebo groups (NTBA vs. NTPL: p = 0.008; TBA vs. TPL: p = 0.037). However, no significant differences were shown between groups (NTPL vs. TPL: p = 0.10; NTBA vs. TBA: p = 0.60) indicating that the effect of β-alanine supplementation was not affected by training status (Fig. 1b).

    MPO was reduced in each subsequent bout during the pre-supplementation trial for all of the groups (Fig. 3). There was an interaction effect on MPO (Group ? Time ? Bout, F = 4.89; p < 0.0001); post hoc tests revealed that both supplemented groups (i.e. NTBA and TBA) were able to maintain MPO from bouts 3?4 following supplementation (both p > 0.05). Compared to the pre-supplementation trial, post-supplementation MPO was higher in bout 4 for the NTBA (p = 0.0004), and higher in bouts 1, 2 and 4 for the TBA group (p ? 0.05, Fig. 3).

    In the pre-supplementation test, both of the non-trained groups (i.e. NTPL and NTBA) showed a significant reduction in PPO in every subsequent trial (all p < 0.05). Conversely, both trained groups were able to maintain PPO across bouts pre-supplementation (all p > 0.05). Importantly, there was an interaction effect on PPO (Group ? Time ? Bout, F = 2.70; p = 0.003), with increased values shown post-supplementation in bout 4 for the NTBA (p = 0.004); and a tendency for increased values in bout 2 for the TBA group (p = 0.08).

    Blinding efficacy and side effects

    Of the 20 participants who were supplemented with β-alanine, only 4 were able to correctly guess their supplement. Of the 19 participants who were supplemented with dextrose, only 9 were able to correctly guess their supplement (Fischer exact test: p = 0.33). Three participants taking β-alanine reported mild paraesthesia and were able to correctly identify their supplement. We reanalysed the data without these three participants and the results remained similar, with no significant differences in the overall findings (as such, these data are not shown). No side effects related to dextrose ingestion were reported.

    Discussion

    Since there is the possibility that an already increased muscle buffering capacity explains the lack of a measurable ergogenic effect of β-alanine in trained athletes, we chose, for the first time, to directly investigate whether training status influences the ergogenic effect of β-alanine supplementation. The main findings of this study were that β-alanine supplementation improved repeated-bout high-intensity cycling performance, to a similar extent, in both trained and non-trained participants.

    The findings of our study are in contrast to previous studies that have shown no effect of β-alanine on highly trained individuals (Derave et al. 2007; Baguet et al. 2010; Bellinger et al. 2012; Saunders et al. 2012). The differences in results might be due to the protocols employed; previous studies may not have used exercise tests of sufficient intensity or duration to be influenced by decreased intramuscular pH, or may have been susceptible to pacing strategies, masking any ergogenic effects of increased muscle buffering capacity. Intermittent supra-maximal exercise promotes a considerably greater intramuscular acidosis than continuous high-intensity exercise (Hermansen and Osnes 1972; Belfry et al. 2012), probably because the former is more reliant on glycolytic ATP resynthesis (Belfry et al. 2012). Thus, it is reasonable to assume that intermittent exercise performance is more likely to be limited by muscle acidosis and, hence, more susceptible to improvements with increased buffering capacity. The 4-bout lower-body modified Wingate test is extremely high-intensity in nature and requires the individual to perform maximally in every bout. Artioli et al. (2007) and De Salles Painelli et al. (2014) showed blood lactate values up to ~15 mmol L?1 following the 4-bout upper-body Wingate test and venous blood pH as low as ~7.05 following 3 bouts of the upper-body Wingate test, highlighting the relevant contribution of anaerobic glycolysis for tests similar in duration, number of bouts and recovery between bouts. Therefore, the repeated-bout Wingate test would appear to be an appropriate model to detect performance improvements promoted by nutritional strategies that increase buffering capacity.

    In the present study, TWD did not differ within the non-trained (NTPL vs. NTBA) and trained groups (TPL vs. TBA) prior to supplementation, indicating that randomisation successfully generated similar groups in each profile. Moreover, TWD prior to supplementation in the trained participants was ~11 % higher (p < 0.05) than in the non-trained participants, and work decrement from the 1st to the 4th bout in the non-trained participants was 20 % higher than in their trained counterparts (average 32 vs. 12 % decrement, respectively; p < 0.05). Since it has been demonstrated that the buffering capacity of homogenates of muscle (which is assumed to be a measure of muscle buffering capacity in situ) is related to repeated sprint ability and work decrement over repeated sprints (Bishop et al. 2004), it is plausible to assume that individuals in the trained groups have higher muscle buffering capacity than those in the non-trained groups. This, however, was not directly measured in the present investigation because it would require muscle biopsies, which are excessively invasive to be performed in athletes in the middle of the competitive season.

    It should be noted that the peak and mean power attained in the 1st bout were not different between trained and non-trained. However, this was most likely caused by the lowered mechanical load of the Wingate test (5 % in the present study instead of the original 7.5 %) employed in our protocol, which hampered the Wingate test to distinguish the trained from the non-trained participants. On the other hand, this modification was necessary to allow the untrained individuals to complete the entire 4-bout protocol, which would not be possible for most of them if we used the 7.5 % load. In spite of the lack of differences in the first bout, our 4-bout modified Wingate test was able to clearly differentiate both groups in terms of mean and peak power in the last 2?3 bouts, TWD in the overall protocol and performance decrement over the 4 bouts.

    Despite the remarkable differences in repeated sprint ability between the trained and non-trained individuals, four weeks of β-alanine supplementation increased TWD to a similar extent in both groups (non-trained: 2.52 ± 2.64 %, trained: 3.64 ± 2.87 %). The magnitude of the improvement in performance observed in the present study is in agreement with a recent meta-analysis that showed a 2.85 % positive effect of β-alanine (Hobson et al. 2012). Although improvements in TWD around 3.0 % may suggest only a discrete effect, it is worth noting that TWD in the trained participants was ~11 % higher than in their non-trained counterpart, meaning that 4 weeks of supplementation elicited a performance improvement which represents about one-third of the improvement achieved by several years of training.

    In the present study, TWD increased due to an increased ability to maintain MPO during the Wingate bouts. A beneficial effect can be expected in the latter bouts of the test, since a single 30-s maximal effort is unlikely to be affected by reduced intramuscular pH (Bogdanis et al. 1998). Artioli et al. (2007) employed an upper-body Wingate protocol to determine the effect of increased extracellular buffering and showed an increase in MPO in the last bout of exercise when experienced judo athletes were supplemented with sodium bicarbonate. Similarly, the non-trained participants supplemented with β-alanine in this study improved their MPO in the final bout of exercise, likely due to an increase in muscle buffering capacity over the exercise pH transit range, from increased carnosine concentrations. However, the trained participants supplemented with β-alanine showed an improved MPO across almost all of the bouts. This may be due to the training status of the trained athletes, who are likely to have had an increased ability to consistently perform maximal exercise across each bout, resulting in an earlier intramuscular H+ accumulation, placing an earlier reliance on their buffering capacity. Furthermore, it is possible that β-alanine supplementation provided a higher training quality during the supplementation period, enhancing training volume and/or intensity, thus increasing MPO in almost all of the bouts in TBA.

    A potential limitation of this study is that we were unable to perform muscle analyses to confirm the efficacy of β-alanine in increasing muscle carnosine content. However, all human studies using 1.6?6.4 g day?1 of β-alanine for 4 weeks or longer have so far reported increases of at least 8 mmol kg?1 dry muscle (corresponding to an increase of 40 % in muscle carnosine) (Sale et al. 2013). According to the estimates by Harris et al. (2006), a 40 % increase in muscle carnosine would represent a ~4 % increase in whole muscle buffering capacity and a ~5 % in type II fibres buffering capacity. Considering that all human studies with β-alanine supplementation have shown increased muscle carnosine, it appears to be safe to assume that our β-alanine supplementation protocol resulted in increased muscle carnosine. Also, based on the current findings showing that trained and non-trained participants equally improved their performance, it is reasonable to assume that carnosine accrual after β-alanine supplementation is not influenced by training status and training history. This is in agreement with Kendrick et al. (2009) using the same supplementation protocol as used in the present study and where the carnosine content of types I and II muscle fibres was measured directly, but in contrast with a recent study by Bex et al. (2014). The latter study, based on MRS measurements, suggested that carnosine elevation induced by β-alanine is higher in trained as compared to non-trained muscles. Further studies directly comparing the responses of both trained and non-trained individuals to β-alanine supplementation and its effects on performance and muscle carnosine content in different muscle fibre types are needed to clarify this issue.

    It is important to note that 3 out of 20 of the participants ingesting β-AThe energy, carbohydrate, protein, fat and β-alaninelanine reported mild paraesthesia, which is a symptom commonly described when a single dose of 1,600 mg is ingested (Harris et al. 2006; D?combaz et al. 2012). The same symptoms are not observed when 1,600 mg of β-alanine is provided in controlled release tablets (Saunders et al. 2012; D?combaz et al. 2012), suggesting that the strategy adopted in our study to slow the absorption of β-alanine (i.e., the addition of carboxymethyl cellulose added to the gelatin capsules) was not totally successful in preventing paraesthesia. Despite this, our data show that the participants as a group were not able to correctly guess the substance that they were ingesting, indicating that the blinding of the present study remained intact.

    It can be concluded that 4 weeks of β-alanine supplementation improved repeated high-intensity cycling performance in both trained and non-trained participants. The findings of the present study indicate the efficacy of β-alanine as an ergogenic aid for high-intensity intermittent exercise regardless of the training status, highlighting that highly trained athletes can benefit from the use of β-alanine.

    β-alanine supplementation improves tactical performance but not cognitive function in combat soldiers.
    Hoffman JR1, Landau G, Stout JR, Dabora M, Moran DS, Sharvit N, Hoffman MW, Ben Moshe Y, McCormack WP, Hirschhorn G, Ostfeld I.


    Abstract
    BACKGROUND:
    There are no known studies that have examined β-alanine supplementation in military personnel. Considering the physiological and potential neurological effects that have been reported during sustained military operations, it appears that β-alanine supplementation may have a potential benefit in maintaining physical and cognitive performance during high-intensity military activity under stressful conditions. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of 28 days of β-alanine ingestion in military personnel while fatigued on physical and cognitive performance.

    METHODS:
    Twenty soldiers (20.1?±?0.9 years) from an elite combat unit were randomly assigned to either a β-alanine (BA) or placebo (PL) group. Soldiers were involved in advanced military training, including combat skill development, navigational training, self-defense/hand-to-hand combat and conditioning. All participants performed a 4-km run, 5-countermovement jumps using a linear position transducer, 120-m sprint, a 10-shot shooting protocol with assault rifle, including overcoming a misfire, and a 2-min serial subtraction test to assess cognitive function before (Pre) and after (Post) 28 days of supplementation.

    RESULTS:
    The training routine resulted in significant increases in 4-km run time for both groups, but no between group differences were seen (p?=?0.597). Peak jump power at Post was greater for BA than PL (p?=?0.034), while mean jump power for BA at Post was 10.2% greater (p?=?0.139) than PL. BA had a significantly greater (p?=?0.012) number of shots on target at Post (8.2?±?1.0) than PL (6.5?±?2.1), and their target engagement speed at Post was also significantly faster (p?=?0.039). No difference in serial subtraction performance was seen between the groups (p?=?0.844).

    CONCLUSION:
    Results of this study indicate that 4-weeks of β-alanine ingestion in young, healthy soldiers did not impact cognitive performance, but did enhance power performance, marksmanship and target engagement speed from pre-ingestion levels.

    Effects of beta-alanine supplementation on performance and muscle fatigue in athletes and non-athletes of different sports: a systematic review.
    Berti Zanella P1, Donner Alves F, Guerini DE Souza C.


    BACKGROUND:
    Beta-alanine (BA) is a non-essential amino acid that can be synthesized in the liver and obtained from diet, particularly from white and red meat. Increased availability of BA via dietary supplement, may improve performance of athletes. The aim of this study was to conduct a review of the use of BA supplementation as an ergogenic aid to improve performance and fatigue resistance in athletes and non-athletes.


    METHODS:
    In this systematic review, a search in PubMed and Bireme databases was performed for the terms "beta-alanine", "beta-alanine and exercise", "carnosine" or "carnosine and exercise" in the titles or abstracts. We included randomized, clinical trials published between 2005 and 2015.


    RESULTS:
    Twenty-three studies were selected. Most of them included physically active individuals. The mean intervention period was 5.2 ± 1.8 weeks, and mean BA dose was 4.8 ± 1.3g / day. The main outcome measures were blood lactate, pH, perceived exertion, power and physical working capacity at fatigue threshold. After BA supplementation, no statistically significant difference was observed in total work, exercise performance time, oxygen consumption and time to exhaustion.


    CONCLUSION:
    BA supplementation seems to improve perceived exertion and biochemical parameters related to muscle fatigue and less evidence was found for improvement in performance.

    Επειδή έχω μάθει πλέον να ακούω το σώμα μου (γιατί τα συμπληρώματα δεν δουλεύουν το ίδιο σε όλους),
    για μένα η B-Alanine όντως βοηθάει στην μείωση της κόπωσης κατά τη διάρκεια της προπόνησης αλλά και για κάποια ώρα μετά.
    Βελτίωση της απόδοσης δεν είδα. Ούτε κάτι άλλο. Αλλά η μείωση της κόπωσης είναι στην πραγματικότητα ένα από τα πιο σημαντικά που μπορείς να πάρεις από ένα συμπλήρωμα. Γιατί σου βελτιώνει τη συνολική απόδοση της προπόνησης και απλά, ανθρώπινα, δεν φεύγεις κουρέλι από το γυμναστήριο ακόμα και αν κάνεις προπονησάρα (δεν είναι και λίγο για έναν κωλόγερο σαν και του λόγου μου)

    Beta-alanine supplementation enhances judo-related performance in highly-trained athletes
    Caroline de Andrade Kratz, Vitor de Salles Painelli, Kleiner M?rcio de Andrade Nemezio, Rafael Pires da Silva,
    Emerson Franchini, Alessandro Moura Zagatto, Bruno Gualano, Guilherme Giannini Artioli

    Objectives
    In official judo competitions, athletes usually engage in 5-7 matches in the same day, performing numerous high-intensity efforts interspersed by short recovery intervals. Thus, glycolytic demand in judo is high and acidosis may limit performance. Carnosine is a relevant intracellular acid buffer whose content is increased with beta-alanine supplementation. Thus, we hypothesized that beta-alanine supplementation could attenuate acidosis and improve judo performance.

    Design
    Twenty-three highly-trained judo athletes were randomly assigned to receive either beta-alanine (6.4?g.day?1) or placebo (dextrose, same dosage) for 4 weeks.

    Methods
    Performance was assessed before (PRE) and after (POST) supplementation through a 5-minute simulated fight (randori) followed by 3 bouts of the Special Judo Fitness Test (SJFT). Blood samples were collected for blood pH, bicarbonate (HCO3?) and lactate determination.

    Results
    Beta-alanine supplementation improved the number of throws per set and the total number of throws (both p < 0.05). Placebo did not change these variables (both p > 0.05). Blood pH and HCO3? reduced after exercise (all p < 0.001), with no between-group differences (all p > 0.05). However, the lactate response to exercise increased in the beta-alanine group as compared to placebo (p?<?0.05).

    Conclusions

    "Just remember that you are doing something that so few people in the world have the will power or determination to do.

Take it as a compliment, for you stand out in a crowd full of followers."

    "You got a dream, you gotta protect it. If people can't do something themselves, they wanna tell you that you can't do it. If you want something, go get it. Period." ~ Chris Gardner
