What Causes Exercise Exhaustion?

When you exercise, your body uses oxygen to break down glucose for energy. During intense exercise, 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 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 and improve exercise performance.1-3
