Olimp Beta-Alanine Carno Rush is a dietary supplement used which boosts performance and endurance and thus helps you do harder and longer workouts. It may be also incorporated into a creatine cycle. It contains carefully selected ingredients (beta-alanine, L-histidine HCL and vitamin B6) to produce synergistic effects and have the best results.
Beta-alanine is a dispensable amino acid, i.e. which the body can synthesise itself. It has ergogenic properties, i.e. increases the body’s exercise capacity and stimulate recovery. One of the vital functions of beta-alanine is that it is involved in the synthesis of carnosine – the main non-proteinogenic compound which contains nitrogen.
Carnosine is a dipeptide (β-alanyl-L-histidine) which is composed of beta-alanine and histidine. It has strong antioxidant properties and removes excess hydrogen ions which are formed during strenuous exercise. According to estimates, carnosine is responsible for 10% of buffer systems in skeletal muscles (it soaks up free H+ ions and prevents acid-base imbalance). Levels of this dipeptide are higher in individuals who do regular intense strength workouts than in other athletes. Muscle carnosine concentrations during physical activity depend on its baseline values. Its muscle levels vary from 10 to 10 mmol per kg of muscle ( 20-30 mmol/kg on average and they are lower in women than men).
It is not recommended to take carnosine alone because it is barely capable of reaching the muscle cells. However, its two substrates have this ability. Because of that, beta-alanine is the best method to increase carnosine levels in muscles and thus considerably increase their efficiency. According to studies, a daily dose of 5-6 g of beta-alanine may boost muscle carnosine levels by up to 64% after just four weeks.
In addition, carnosine neutralises free radicals, preventing cellular ageing. It is also quite selective in scavenging reactive oxygen species because it does not suppress all signalling and regulatory functions in the body. As shown in studies, carnosine may chelate ions of metals (including zinc, cobalt and iron), thereby regulating their levels in the body and reducing their toxicity. It may be beneficial to the cardiovascular system (improves significantly cardiac contractility.
Other functions of beta-alanine
Beta-alanine relieves peripheral fatigue, which has been confirmed in studies on the elderly. It also seems that it reduces the sensation of fatigue and thus helps increase your exercise capacity. According to some studies, beta-alanine contributes to improving tactical skills, which may be useful for athletes.
It has also an indirect impact on body composition because it increases physical performance in strength training and thus helps exercise longer. This is a good starting point for building muscle mass.
Role of L-histidine in the body
The supplement contains also L-histidine HCL, classified among indispensable amino acids, i.e. those that cannot be synthesised itself by the body. Like beta-alanine, it is a precursor to carnosine. Because of that, it helps boost its concentrations in skeletal muscles. This improves the body’s performance and prevents cellular acidosis. It promotes also protein synthesis in the body and thus help you build muscle mass.
L-Histidine boosts haemoglobin production, thereby improving oxygen delivery to cells. It is also a transporter for such elements as zinc and iron and is thus quite important for metabolic processes. Histidine is essential to protect tissues from damage caused by radiation. Furthermore, it is sometimes used to aid the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, anaemia and kidney diseases. Histidine is converted by decarboxylation to histamine which is a neurotransmitter involved in immune and digestive function.
Pyridoxine for better mood
Vitamin B6, found in this supplement, promotes well-being because it is required for the production of important neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, serotonin and GABA. It is also important that it influences beneficially the nervous system and hence your performance during strenuous workouts (because of that, it enhances effects of beta-alanine).
In addition, it may contribute to reducing levels of homocysteine, i.e. an amino acid which is believed to be correlated with psychiatric disorders, including depression or even Alzheimer’s disease. Due to its calming effect, vitamin B6 is recommended for relieving symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and menopause. It helps improve immune function and has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
To sum up, Olimp Beta-Alanine Carno Rush is a dietary supplement recommended to individuals who need support during hard workouts to exercise longer. When it comes to strength training, studies showed that persons supplementing with beta-alanine were able to do one rep more or two extra reps per set (the standard number of reps per set was 8-15). It improves also significantly muscle endurance in sprinters and rowers.
Taking supplements with beta-alanine may cause a tingling sensation, i.e. paresthesia. This side effect is not harmful to the body. It does not occur if you take prolonged-release formulations or small doses of the supplement a few times a day
Do not take supplements with beta-alanine and taurine together because they have the same transporter and thus compete with each other. As a result, beta-alanine may cause taurine deficiency. Nonetheless, it is recommended to combine beta-alanine with creatine because they have synergistic effects and may therefore boost the body’s performance.

Beta-alanine (β-alanine) is a β-amino acid (the same group to which the I-alanine belongs, but with different chemistries). In combination with histidine, it forms β-alanyl-L-histidine (carnosine) - a antioxidant, chelating and buffering compound. Carnosine reduces the level of hydrogen ions in the cell and allows to extend the physical performance and endurance, it affects biological recovery after exercise. Beta-alanine is available in the form of single component and advanced amino-acid supplements, creatine stacks and nitrogen boosters.
Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
Histidine is one of the 22 amino acids being part of protein - depending on the source of information it is referred to as "relatively exogenous" or "exogenous". The required dosage of this amino acid is very small, and at the same time it should be added that the intestinal microflora can also play a role in meeting the demand for it.
Histidine is a precursor of carnosine, and therefore dipeptide having antioxidant and buffering qualities. Increasing the dose of carnosine in muscles is an effective way to increase strength and endurance, as well as to accelerate recovery after exercise, thus improving the indicators that are extremely important especially in the case of people being engaged in regular physical activity , including professional athletes.
The number of products containing histidine and available on the market is quite limited. This amino acid is mainly added to some of the supplements used before and/or after exercise, as well as to some of the amino acid supplements. It should be noted, however, that it also occurs naturally in foods rich in protein, and thus primarily in meat, eggs and dairy products, as well as in protein supplements.
Histidine is an amino acid which can be converted in the body into glucose. It also takes part in the synthesis of proteins, including hemoglobin.
Dosage: There are no precise data, but as it has already been hinted above - the required dosage of this amino acid is very small.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
What is pyridoxine hydrochloride?
Pyridoxine hydrochloride is a basic, the most commonly used form of vitamin B6 in supplements and fortified foods. It is a vitamin soluble in water. It converts to the active form of the vitamin - pyridoxal phosphate.
Vitamin B6 is a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions. It takes part in the production of many neurotransmitters, such as GABA, serotonin and catecholamines and it takes part in the metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids. It is an important factor for the process of the creation of red cells and hemoglobin and its deficit may be one of the factors causing anemia. This vitamin contributes to maintaining proper energy metabolism and is important for maintaining well-being and good psychological condition. Its presence supports the breakdown of pro-inflammatory homocysteine to cysteine and further metabolites, thanks to which it may decrease the risk of atherosclerosis and cardiological incidents.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride may be found in many vitamin B complexes and vitamin-mineral preparations available in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
