FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ABOUT BETA ALANINE AND CARNOSINE

What is beta-alanine?

Beta-alanine, or 3-aminopropionic acid, is a naturally occurring beta amino acid. Its potential to change lives for the better was first discovered by renowned researcher, Dr. Roger Harris.

Inside the body, beta-alanine combines with existing histidine to create carnosine. In turn, holding the key to unlocking carnosine’s natural antioxidant powers.

Where in nature is beta-alanine found?

Beta-alanine is naturally found in meat, fish and poultry protein. So, it’s already in many of the foods we eat. Despite this, it’s very hard to get the amount your body needs through diet alone. For example, you’d need to consume 41 hamburgers to get the amount of beta-alanine equivalent to one daily serving of SR CarnoSyn®.

This is why supplementing with beta-alanine is so important for healthy aging and everyday wellness. And why SR CarnoSyn® is such a significant breakthrough.

What are the health benefits of increased carnosine levels?

The health benefits of increased carnosine levels are well documented. There is extensive clinical research supporting carnosine’s impact on many of the body’s systems. It has been shown to support brain, muscle, heart, bone and overall systemic health. It is a powerful antioxidant, helping to protect the body from damage due to oxidative stress and the glycation process. Of significant interest to today’s consumer is carnosine’s ability to balance mood, relieve occasional, everyday anxiety and promote healthy immune function.

Who can benefit from supplementing with SR CarnoSyn®?

Many, many people can benefit from supplementing with SR CarnoSyn®! Young, old, female, male­­—we can all reap the rewards of increased levels of carnosine in our bodies. SR CarnoSyn® is perfect for anyone looking to proactively preserve their health, maintain an active lifestyle or fight age-related decline.

With physical and mental health now on everybody’s mind, SR CarnoSyn® has an even broader appeal. Studies show it boosts the immune system and promotes a healthy response to everyday stress.

Is supplementing with SR CarnoSyn® a good idea for vegetarians?

Yes, it’s a great idea! Since vegetarian diets don’t include meat, fish or poultry, their beta-alanine levels are extremely low. This makes supplementing especially important for anyone who pursues a vegetarian lifestyle.

Why not just supplement with carnosine?

Supplementing with carnosine is far less efficient than supplementing with beta‑alanine. During digestion, absorption and transport, carnosine breaks down into beta‑alanine and histidine before resynthesizing back into carnosine at the cellular level. Beta-alanine formulations are far more efficient, as the body avoids this extra step.

But isn’t formulating with carnosine more cost-effective?

Formulating with carnosine is not more cost-effective. Quite the opposite, actually. Carnosine formulations are up to 25 times more expensive to make.

They commonly contain about 40% beta-alanine by weight which means the rest is unnecessary histidine and other ingredients. Since the body typically doesn’t need extra histidine, the added ingredients represent little more than wasted cost. Alas, carnosine formulations demand far greater investment yet deliver an inferior end product.
