CarnoSyn® is a patented form of beta-alanine, an amino acid that has become a focal point of research for its potential support to athletic performance and general well-being.* In this article, we will explore what CarnoSyn® is, how it operates in the body, and what some studies reveal about its potential.
CarnoSyn® is a specialized version of beta-alanine, engineered to help support muscle carnosine levels. CarnoSyn® is normally synthesized by combining beta-alanine with a buffer, a method designed to help enhance its absorption.* It is one of the most researched and established forms of beta-alanine.
When CarnoSyn® enters the body, it may bind with the amino acid histidine to help produce carnosine, which acts as a buffer, potentially neutralizing the hydrogen ions produced during high-intensity exercise. Carnosine may help athletes perform better for longer periods by delaying the onset of fatigue by buffering the buildup of hydrogen ions.*
Potential benefits of CarnoSyn®
CarnoSyn's potential includes athletic performance and muscle mass support, as well as cognitive function support. Research has indicated that CarnoSyn beta-alanine supplementation may potentially support muscle carnosine levels, which may promote exercise performance in high-intensity activities lasting one to four minutes, such as sprinting and weightlifting.*
Carnosine's potential to stimulate proteins involved in muscle growth may also contribute to the support of muscle mass.* While studies show some evidence of support in cognitive function for certain populations and in specific settings, more research is needed to confirm this potential support and other potential benefits of beta-alanine.
In conclusion, CarnoSyn® is a patented version of beta-alanine, designed to help support muscle carnosine levels, which may offer potential advantages for athletic performance.*
As with any supplement, consulting with a healthcare professional before beginning CarnoSyn supplementation is essential.
