Beta-Alanine Supplementation: CarnoSyn® Answers the Top 5 Consumer Questions

As research continues to emerge about the benefits of beta-alanine supplementation, many people are finding themselves wanting to know more. Beta-alanine is one of the most commonly used and professionally-commended supplements for athletes. CarnoSyn®’s beta-alanine is scientifically proven and supported by more than 55 clinical studies. It’s patented, pure, and banned substance free. At the proper doses, supplementing with beta-alanine can speed the building of muscle mass, extend endurance, enhance mental focus, and speed recovery time between workouts. But many beta-alanine users are not maximizing the benefits because they’re not taking enough on a daily basis. To ensure you’re getting the most out of your beta-alanine supplementation, CarnoSyn® answers the top 5 consumer questions.

Question 1: What is the recommended dosing maintenance AFTER the loading period of 28 days?

It will take time to receive the full effects of beta-alanine supplementation. After the loading period, CarnoSyn® or SR CarnoSyn® should continue to be taken daily to maintain the appropriate levels of carnosine in the body, an average of 3.2 grams per day, at a minimum. You may continue to dose at a higher level of 6.4g per day after the loading phase as it will help maintain higher levels of carnosine in the body, which leads to better performance and results.

Question 2: Can you take CarnoSyn® every day, year-round, even at 6.4 grams every day?

Yes, extensive research has proven that taking 3.2 to 6.4 grams of beta-alanine every day is necessary to maintain the appropriate level of carnosine in the body. Based on tolerance, fitness, and/or competition goals, some opt to maintain the minimum 3.2g daily dose or amplify results by increasing to 6.4g per day. SR CarnoSyn® sustained release beta-alanine is an important tool for athletes who prefer to minimize the tingling sensation of paresthesia.

Question 3: Are there any side effects or drawbacks when stopping consumption of CarnoSyn®?

If CarnoSyn® is not taken daily after the loading period, there will be a slight loss of appropriate levels of carnosine. Consequently, you will not receive all the benefits CarnoSyn® has

to offer. In order to enjoy the full benefits of CarnoSyn®, and avoid inconsistent dosing, be sure to consume a minimum of 3.2g per day.

Question 4: How do I know if my supplement contains CarnoSyn®?

Look for the CarnoSyn® logo on the label. But don’t stop there–make sure you are using a CarnoSyn® Verified product that will provide you with the efficacious daily dose of beta-alanine of at least 3.2g a day. Visit our CarnoSyn® Verified page to see the list of our verified brand partners.

Question 5: Does CarnoSyn contain any banned substances?

No, CarnoSyn® does not contain any banned substances and is not listed by any of the following authorities for banned substances: National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Major League Baseball (MLB), World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and International Olympic Committee (IOC).

CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is available in two different forms—instant release and sustained release—offering two ways to dose. SR CarnoSyn® offers the same benefits as instant release CarnoSyn®, but in an advanced delivery system that allows for increased dosing for better results. When used in tandem, the combination of instant release and sustained release gives athletes the ability to stack their dosing for higher quantities of beta-alanine and even more performance gains.
