How Beta-alanine Supplementation Supports Healthy Aging via Supporting Cognitive Function and Muscle Health

12:00 PM – 1:30 PM | Friday, February 22, 2019
Speaker: Jay Hoffman Ph.D., FNSCA, FACSM
Location: Morgan Suite



Session DescriptionThis discussion will focus on the scientific studies regarding beta-alanine supplementation and its role in generating carnosine in the body to support of overall systemic health, cognitive function and muscle support. The efficacy of our patented delivery system of beta-alanine as SR CarnoSyn®, will also be presented.

SR CarnoSyn® is a slow release form of beta-alanine which combines naturally with histidine in the body to produce carnosine. Carnosine, is a powerful natural antioxidant, which has been rigorously researched and clinically proven to provide support for muscle, cognitive and systemic function, helping you to reach everyday peak performance.*

Why supplement with SR CarnoSyn®?

As we age, the carnosine levels in our bodies naturally decrease and diet alone won’t provide enough beta-alanine, the rate-limiting factor in carnosine synthesis, to slow the changes that may be seen as we age. Changes may begin as early as age thirty and they accelerate as we age.

Studies show that 3.2 grams of beta-alanine per day is the effective amount of supplementation needed to support everyday wellness and healthy aging. Supplementation with traditional forms of beta-alanine may lead to paresthesia, a harmless tingling sensation that is not desired by consumers looking for everyday wellness and healthy aging solutions. SR CarnoSyn®’s patented formula provides a safe and effective method of beta-alanine supplementation to support carnosine production without the sensation of paresthesia.*

Why not supplement with carnosine directly?

Supplementing with beta-alanine is much more efficient and cost-effective than direct carnosine supplementation because the body doesn’t need the extra histidine.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Participants will be able to explain how beta-alanine supplementation can lead to support of cognitive function to benefit healthy aging and wellness.
  2. Participants will be able to explain the best delivery form of beta-alanine to increase carnosine content in tissue.
  3. Participants will be able to discuss the efficacy of beta-alanine ingestion on maximizing physical performance in different age and training groups, including competitive and tactical athletic populations.
