Product Overview

  • Supports Muscular Endurance
  • Helps Delay Muscle Fatigue
  • High Potency
  • CarnoSyn Carnosine Synthesizer
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement
  • Vegetarian/Vegan Product

Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is used by muscle cells to synthesize Carnosine. Carnosine is a dipeptide (Beta-Alanine plus Histidine) that functions as a buffer for the hydrogen ions (acid) produced during strenuous exercise, thus helping to maintain optimum muscular pH. NOW uses CarynoSyn, a patented form of Beta-Alanine that has been clinically tested and shown to increase muscle Carnosine content, allowing muscles to work harder and longer during intense exercise. NOW Beta-Alanine is backed by scientific research demonstrating that CarnoSyn supplementation results in delayed muscle fatigue and rapid recovery time, thereby helping you attain your strength and endurance training goals.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take a 1/2 level teaspoon (2.0 g) 3 to 4 times daily. Mix into 8 fl oz of water or your favorite beverage. For best results, allow at least 2 hours between doses. Consider taking these other NOW products: Ribose and GPLC GlycoCarn.

Other Ingredients


Contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.


This product is sold by weight not volume.

Caution: Beta-Alanine may cause a harmless, temporary tingling sensation on the skin for some individuals. After a few weeks of supplementation with Beta-Alanine, this sensation normally lessens or subsides.

Best bang for the buck!!!

Increments in muscular hypertrophy. Increments in muscular strength and power. Enhancements in both aerobic and anaerobic output. Delayed muscular fatigue Another additional benefit of Beta Alanine is that it is a completely natural ingredient, unlike many other supplements which seem to have ingredient lists which go on forever. They are also padded out with many artificial sweeteners and flavourings, none of which are beneficial to you, apart from creating a nice flavour for your taste buds! Beta Alanine also mixes with relative ease and can be consumed within a regular drink or combined together with other supplements to create a stack. Research has indicated that Beta Alanine combines well with many supplements, including creatine and branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) to produce an overall enhanced supplementation effect on the body. Recently, I utilised Beta Alanine as an independent supplement within my weight training schedule and was astonished by the almost immediate results I noticed. I have to admit that prior to taking the supplement I was sceptical about its proposed benefits but after as little as a week supplementing with the recommended doses I observed definite improvements in both my ability to lift heavier weights and perform additional repetitions.

Way cheaper than carnosine, and just as good or better!

Posted by Reviewer1397836 on Jan 04, 2010

Seems to boost carnosine levels, but at a fraction of the cost! This bulk powder is super cheap too!

Now Foods Beta-Alanine

Posted by Reviewer2620388 on Jul 10, 2008

I get some tingling sort of like when using high doses of niacin but I have noticed much more energy when I work out. I usually take a teaspoon which is more than is recommended.

My choice in beta alanine

Posted by Reviewer1458763 on Jan 27, 2011

Product very interesting because by presenting it in powder form allows you to better quantitate the exact amount of grams you want to use in periods of the day. Beta alanine of high purity that you can notice the tingling sensation of intense typical of this substance in very small doses Excellent cost-efficient, high quality and taste almost insipid. No return for caps on beta alanine that often comes with other substances, when what we want is purity and make use of grammage.
