Patented sustained release SR CarnoSyn beta-alanine now commercially available

SR CarnoSyn beta-alanine stimulates the synthesis of muscle carnosine

Natural Alternatives International, a global formulator and manufacturer of customised nutritional supplements, has announced the immediate availability of SR CarnoSyn — a superior form of beta-alanine with a sustained release profile that provides increased daily dosing and improved muscle retention of carnosine.

This new delivery system is available in both tablet and powder form and provides daily doses of beta-alanine up to 6.4g with limited paresthesia and significantly reduces the loading period needed to enhance performance levels.

Clinical and scientific studies have repeatedly shown that average supplementation of beta-alanine, with a total loading of 179g (6.4g/day for 4 weeks), provided significant performance attributes. However, until now, ingesting this level of beta-alanine would normally cause uncomfortable paresthesia sensations.

'SR CarnoSyn sustained release beta-alanine is now commercially available and provides formulation flexibility, extending the benefits of beta-alanine to a much broader group of consumers,' said Mark A. LeDoux, NAI's CEO and Chairman. 'This proprietary and patented form of beta-alanine shows tremendous market growth potential in applications for serious athletes, as well as active individuals and the healthy ageing market.'

Beta-alanine combines with histidine in the body to form carnosine, which acts as a buffer and helps to delay the onset of muscle fatigue and failure. The sustained release form stays in the body longer for extended absorption, higher muscle retention and a significant increase in muscle carnosine levels to extend endurance, speed muscle recovery, build muscle strength and enhance peak performance capabilities.

'These improvements in muscle and exercise performance are attributed to the increases in muscle carnosine concentration and corresponding increases in muscle buffering capacity,' said Roger Harris, PhD, beta-alanine research pioneer and patent inventor.

Dr Harris went on to state: 'Recent studies, and the kinetic modelling of the changes in muscle carnosine, have reinforced the fact that a higher daily dose, and longer supplementation period with beta-alanine, further amplifies the performance improvements that can be achieved in the execution of sustained, intermittent, high-intensity exercise that is anaerobically challenging.'

Natural Alternatives International is also proud to announce their new manufacturing partnership with INNOBIO LIMITED, located in Dalian, China, using their patented and proprietary process to manufacture NAI's SR CarnoSyn powder.

INNOBIO's President, Wenzhong Wu, PhD, commented: 'We are very pleased to have worked closely with Natural Alternatives International to create this unique and clearly superior product. INNOBIO specialises in controlled release and sustained release technologies that enable wonderful product ideas such as SR CarnoSyn to come to life.'
