Creatine vs Beta-Alanine in the Race for Endurance

Whenever someone invests time and energy into a fitness goal, there are quite a few misconceptions that could possibly hinder you in some way. As you embark on this journey, you really want to have a clear understanding of how your body works and exactly what you want to achieve. Once you know where you stand in terms of your goals you can start researching which supplements will benefit you the most.

One thing that will always remain essential to everyone, no matter your sport or your goal, is creatine. Creatine is a naturally occurring compound which is found in 95% of muscle tissue and 5% in organ tissue, such as your kidneys and liver. It is active in supplying your muscles with energy during high intensity exercise or weight lifting.

Therefore, considering creatine as a part of your daily routine is beneficial. In small amounts, it can help you enhance your strength and improve exercise performance.

As part of our new Iconic series, we have launched our Creatine Monohydrate, which helps promote muscle recovery and lean muscle volume as well as muscle power and strength. The great thing about creatine is that it is most affective in small doses and you can trust that just a little bit will get you a long way. This makes this product ideal for anyone who is looking to become more active in their daily life, not just those of us who are in to hardcore exercise.

Hand in hand with the creatine monohydrate, we can talk about the Beta-Alanine capsules. Typically, Beta-Alanine causes paraesthesia, which is a tingling sensation felt in the body, though this is usually due to high volumes of in take.

To better understand why this happens, Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid which reduces the accumulation of lactic acid in your muscles. Which is why it is able to enhance overall performance. The idea of creating a capsule was not only to monitor the intake but allow users the choice of whether they would like to use Beta-Alanine as a part of their routine, instead of forcing it into the Creatine Monohydrate as most brands typically do.

So when you’re looking at sports which really challenge your endurance and muscle recovery, you really want to look at which supplements could benefit you the most. Not everything needs to be taken at once and it’s important to understand the label and what exactly you’re putting in to your body, which is why NutrIcon is so devoted to ensuring utmost transparency.
