Evidences suggest that intramuscular acidosis is one of the major causes of fatigue during high-intensity exercise. Carnosine is a dipeptide found in skeletal muscle and its most reported role is of pH buffering. The effect of beta-alanine supplementation in increasing muscular carnosine content is well established. However, it has been suggested that high-intensity intermittent trainin...
Nutritional interventions aiming to regulate intra- and extracellular pH during exercise are claimed to have potential ergogenic effects. Studies have shown that supplementation with beta-alanine (which increases muscle carnosine content) and sodium bicarbonate improve performance in high-intensity intermittent exercises. Because carnosine acts as intracellular buffer and sodium bicarbo...
