Sponsored Lunch and Learn Presentation*
12:00 PM – 1:30 PM | Friday, February 21, 2020
Speakers: Di Tan, Ph.D., & Jay Hoffman, Ph.D., FNSCA, FACSM
Session Description: This discussion will focus on the scientific studies regarding beta-alanine supplementation & its role in generating carnosine in the body to support overall systemic health, cognitive function & muscle function. The efficiency of our patented delivery system of beta-alanine as SR CarnoSyn®, will also be presented.
SR CarnoSyn® is a sustained release form of beta-alanine that combines naturally with histidine in the body to produce carnosine. As we age, the carnosine levels in our bodies naturally decrease & 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. Studies show that 2.4 grams of beta-alanine per day is the effective amount of supplementation needed to support everyday wellness.* Learn more at http://www.srcarnosyn.com.

- Participants will be able to learn how beta-alanine supplementation can lead to support other functions critical for healthy aging and wellness—such as brain health, muscle function, heart health, systemic protection and bone health.
- Participants will be able to explain the best delivery form of beta-alanine to increase carnosine content in tissue.
- 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.
