Benefits of Beta Alanine for Horses

CEN Beta Alanine is 100% pure amino acid that helps slow fatigue by supporting the natural ability of the muscles to cope with lactic acid build up. This is a must for the performance horses.

It helps to build condition and improve recovery in animals who are competing at speed, jumping or performing over long periods of time. Beta-alanine is the building block of carnosine, a molecule that acts to buffer acid in muscles

Supplementation with Beta-alanine for horses can help to; support the immune system, improve stamina levels via buffering lactic acid build-up, increase muscle health and reduce oxidative stress in horses with recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis (RER), also known as tying-up.


Beta-alanine can help improve exercise performance and delay fatigue in horses. It increases muscle carnosine levels, which can help buffer the build-up of lactic acid and hydrogen ions during high-intensity exercise (1)(4).

Muscle Health / Tying Up

Beta-alanine supplementation has been shown to improve muscle function and reduce oxidative stress in horses with recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis (RER), also known as tying-up (2).

Immune System

Beta-alanine can also have a positive effect on the immune system by enhancing the production of nitric oxide, which can help fight infections and diseases


Beta-alanine supplementation has been found to improve body composition in horses by increasing lean muscle mass and reducing body fat (1).

  1. Jemima Gardiner

    Beta Alanine has been a game changer for us and our quarter horse mare! With a history of tying up when competing around mainland Australia, it has previously been quite stressful to train and compete to our full capacity. Now we have so much peace of mind with Beta Alanine added to her diet! She has successfully competed all around Australia in the past few months without even the slightest indication of tying up!
    Thank you so much Cen Nutrition for this awesome product!
