UNLABELLED Beta-alanine supplementation has been shown to improve exercise performance in short-term high-intensity efforts. However, whether supplementation with beta-alanine is ergogenic to actual sporting events remains unclear and should be investigated in field testing or race simulations. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess if beta-alanine supplementation could improve 2,000-m rowing-ergometer performance in well-trained male rowers. METHODS Participants (N = 16) completed… Expand
The effect of beta-alanine supplementation on isokinetic force and cycling performance in highly trained cyclists.
TLDR
Four weeks of beta-alanine supplementation resulted in worthwhile changes in time-trial performance and short-duration muscular force production in highly trained cyclists. Expand
The effect of two β-alanine dosing strategies on 30-minute rowing performance: a randomized, controlled trial
TLDR
The effect of two βA dosing strategies on 30-min rowing and subsequent sprint performance was investigated and findings were potentially explained by within-group significance for the same variables for the first 10 min split, as warranted. Expand
The effect of β-alanine supplementation on cycling time trials of different length
TLDR
For the highly trained cyclists in the current study, β-alanine supplementation significantly extended supramaximal cycling TTE and may have provided a worthwhile improvement to 4-km TT performance, however, 1- and 10-km cycling TT performance appears to be unaffected by β-Alanine supplementation.

Effect of beta-alanine, with and without sodium bicarbonate, on 2000-m rowing performance.
TLDR
Both chronic beta-alanine and acute sodium bicarbonate supplementation alone had positive effects on 2,000-m rowing performance. Expand
The Effects of Short Term β-Alanine Supplementation on Performance in Division III Male and Female Rowers
Introduction: Carnosine is an intramuscular buffer, and β-Alanine is the limiting reagent in carnosine synthesis. Thus, β-Alanine supplementation which increases carnosine concentrations, has beenExpand
BETA-ALANINE SUPPLEMENTATION SEEMS TO INCREASE PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE AND ACUTE RECOVERY IN COMPETITIVE JUDOKAS
TLDR
Beta-alanine supplementation for 35 days appears to improve performance in judo, possibly due to the greater involvement of lactic acid metabolism. Expand
International society of sports nutrition position stand: Beta-Alanine
TLDR
More research is needed to determine the effects of beta-alanine on strength, endurance performance beyond 25 min in duration, and other health-related benefits associated with carnosine. Expand
Influence of training status on high-intensity intermittent performance in response to β-alanine supplementation
TLDR
BA supplementation was effective at improving repeated high-intensity cycling performance in both trained and non-trained individuals, highlighting the efficacy of BA as an ergogenic aid for high- intensity exercise regardless of the training status of the individual. Expand
Doubling of muscle carnosine concentration does not improve laboratory 1-hr cycling time-trial performance.
TLDR
Chronic beta-alanine supplementation in well-trained cyclists had a very pronounced effect on muscle carnosine concentration and a moderate attenuating effect on the acidosis associated with lactate accumulation, yet without affecting 1-h time-trial performance under laboratory conditions. Expand
Ergogenic Effects of β-Alanine Supplementation on Different Sports Modalities: Strong Evidence or Only Incipient Findings?
TLDR
It is revealed that inconsistencies are still found in aerobic parameters determined in incremental tests, except for physical working capacity at the neuromuscular fatigue threshold, for strength exercises and intermittent high-intensity efforts, whereas in supramaximal continuous mode intermittent exercise, the beneficial evidence is strong.

Effect of combined β-alanine and sodium bicarbonate supplementation on cycling performance.
TLDR
In trained cyclists, β-alanine supplementation did not significantly improve 4-min cycling performance; however, there may be a small meaningful improvement in performance. Expand
Effect of β-alanine plus sodium bicarbonate on high-intensity cycling capacity.
TLDR
Results show that BA improved high-intensity cycling capacity, however, despite a 6-s increase in TTE with the addition of SB, this did not reach statistical significance, but magnitude-based inferences suggested a ∼70% probability of a meaningful positive difference. Expand
Short-duration beta-alanine supplementation increases training volume and reduces subjective feelings of fatigue in college football players.
TLDR
Higher training volumes and lower subjective feelings of fatigue in BA indicated that as duration of supplementation continued, the efficacy of beta-alanine supplementation in highly trained athletes became apparent, despite a trend toward lower fatigue rates during 60 seconds of maximal exercise. Expand
Effects of β-alanine supplementation on exercise performance: a meta-analysis
TLDR
A preliminary quantitative review of the literature through a meta-analysis found that β-alanine supplementation improves the outcome of exercise measures to a greater extent than placebo, and exercise lasting 60–240 s was improved, in line with the purported mechanisms for an ergogenic effect. Expand
Important role of muscle carnosine in rowing performance.
TLDR
It can be concluded that the positive correlation between baseline muscle carnosine levels and rowing performance and thepositive correlation between changes in muscle Carnosine and performance improvement suggest that muscle carnOSine is a new determinant of roowing performance. Expand
The effects of 10 weeks of resistance training combined with β-alanine supplementation on whole body strength, force production, muscular endurance and body composition
TLDR
In conclusion, 10 weeks of resistance training alone did not change M-[Carn], and the aim of this investigation was to investigate if increased M:[Carn] brought about through β-ala supplementation had a positive effect on training responses. Expand
β-Alanine supplementation reduces acidosis but not oxygen uptake response during high-intensity cycling exercise
TLDR
Results indicate that chronic β-alanine supplementation, which presumably increased muscle carnosine content, can attenuate the fall in blood pH during high-intensity exercise. Expand
beta-Alanine supplementation augments muscle carnosine content and attenuates fatigue during repeated isokinetic contraction bouts in trained sprinters.
TLDR
Proton MRS can be used to noninvasively quantify human muscle Carnosine content and muscle carnosine is increased by oral beta-alanine supplementation in sprint-trained athletes; carnosinesine loading slightly but significantly attenuated fatigue in repeated bouts of exhaustive dynamic contractions; and the increase in muscle Carnival did not improve isometric endurance or 400-m race time.

Influence of β-alanine supplementation on skeletal muscle carnosine concentrations and high intensity cycling capacity
TLDR
The increase in TWD with supplementation followed the increase in muscle carnosine, which was significantly increased by +58.8% and +80.1% after 4 and 10 wks β-alanine supplementation. Expand
The effect of 4 weeks β-alanine supplementation and isokinetic training on carnosine concentrations in type I and II human skeletal muscle fibres
TLDR
It is suggested that β-alanine availability is the main factor regulating muscle carnosine synthesis, and 4 weeks of isokinetic training has no effect on the muscle Carnosine content. Expand
