During high-intensity exercise, lactic acid is formed in the muscles and splits into lactate and hydrogen ions (H+). These H+ ions cause the blood to become more acidic (a drop in pH) which is one of the main causes of fatigue for this type of exercise. When this acid build-up occurs, the muscle losses contractility and strength thus making it impossible to continue to exercise at the same intensity. Therefore, to cope with this acidity the body uses buffers and one of these buffers is called carnosine.
Carnosine is made up of histidine and beta-alanine. We have plenty of histidine in our body, but a lack of beta-alanine. Therefore it is this lack of beta-alanine which affects how much carnosine there is. Therefore, beta-alanine supplementation may help to increase the amount of muscle carnosine, a buffer of acidity in high-intensity exercise. The body may, therefore, be able to cope with higher levels of acidification.
