Molecular Structure



Beta-alanine is a non-essential β−amino acid. Non-essential amino acids can be made by the body, so they don’t have to be provided by food. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Beta-alanine is used for improving athletic performance, supporting muscle growth and helping to increase exercise capacity.
