Available from: https://doi.org/10.1101/870584

Beta-alanine (BA) supplementation increases muscle carnosine content (MCarn) and is ergogenic in many situations. Currently, many questions on the nature of the Mcarn response to supplementation are open, and the responses to these have considerable...
