When should I use the Beta Blast Pocket Rocket?
The Beta Blast with 2g of beta alanine makes the perfect pre-workout supplement especially before high-intensity training or races. Fast-acting carbs boost blood glucose levels, beta-alanine fights lactic acid, and caffeine gives stimulation, all in all boosting muscular performance. Beta alanine has also been shown to improve sprint finish performance during cycling races so you can use this bar in the closing stages of a race to give a boost for the finish!

What is Beta alanine?
Beta alanine is a non-essential amino acid involved in production of muscle carnosine. Carnosine is an intra-cellular buffer stored in the muscles which helps reduce lactic acid build up. As lactic acid is produced at a higher rate during intense exercise, beta alanine is a much more effective supplement for shorter, high intensity efforts.
How does Beta-alanine improve performance?
Beta-alanine consumption can increase levels of muscle carnosine which is a buffer to lactic acid, therefore this amino acid can help prevent lactic build up in the muscles, allowing athletes to push harder for longer (Harris et al., 2006). The effects are most pronounced in high-intensity activity lasting 1 - 4minutes. (Trexler et al. 2015).
Will the Beta Blast make my mouth or lips tingle?
Beta alanine can cause a tingling sensation around the mouth, lips or skin, known as paraesthesia. Whilst this doesn’t happen in everybody it can be a little alarming if you’re not expecting it. Tingling from beta-alanine is completely normal and perfectly safe.
What's the daily recommended dose of Beta-alanine for performance?
Research suggests a daily intake of 4-6g of beta alanine is optimal for at least 2 - 4 weeks (International Society of Sports Nutrition ISSN, 2015). This dose boosts carnosine levels in skeletal muscles which in turn maximises the lactic-buffering capacity.. Studies also found that on average there was a more pronounced effect in older individuals whose muscle carnosine tends to decrease slightly with age. The Beta Blast Rocket contains 2g of beta alanine per bar.
