What Causes Muscle Exhaustion?

When you move, your body uses oxygen to break down glucose for energy. When there isn’t enough oxygen available, your body makes lactate, which can be converted into energy without oxygen. Hydrogen ions are also produced during that process. Hydrogen ions decrease the pH level in your muscles, reducing your muscles’ ability to contract and resulting in fatigue.

Beta-alanine increases carnosine production, and carnosine helps regulate acid build-up, which can delay muscle fatigue.6-8
