Amino-Buff is a supplement combination of amino acids with an extremely high concentration of Beta-Alanine. This product has been specifically designed to buffer lactic acid using proven scientific methods.
What is Beta-Alanine?
This supplement contains 80% Beta-Alanine which is actually classed as a di-peptide. A di-peptide is the combination
of only two amino acids. Beta Alanine is composed of the individual amino acids Carnosine and Histidine.
Science behind Amino-Buff:
Buffering lactic acid in horses competing in competition has always been controversial given the scientifically proven effects of sodium bicarbonate (TCO2) loading.
M Dunnett and M C Harris from the Royal Veterinary College, Hatfield, UK, performed a study involving six thoroughbreds, and witnessed changes in the levels of muscle carnosine which was influenced by the bioavailability of the oral supplementation of Beta Alanine . Muscle carnosine levels individually increased significantly correlating with the different levels of dosage . Increasing the muscle carnosine levels lead to intramuscular buffering capacity .
Other studies have been performed since and one of the most noticeable benefits of supplementing oral Beta- Alanine is that, regardless of how much is supplemented, the TCO2 levels are not elevated, meaning no breaches of rules of racing.
Another important ingredient in Amino-Buff is Glutamine. Infection and intense exercise has been demonstrated in the past to decrease the concentration of plasma Glutamine levels of horses. Oral supplementation of Glutamine has been shown to benefit the athletically or clinically stressed horse with decreased plasma Glutamine levels .
Amino-Buff is suitable and effective towards all types of equine sports competition.
