ALANINE and B-ALANINE : Non Essential Amino Acids

Alanine is a non-essential amino acid. It plays an important function in the metabolism of the essential amino acid tryptophan and the vitamin pyridoxine. In cases of hypoglycaemia, alanine may be used for the production of glucose so that the blood glucose levels stabilize in the long term.

– Alanine helps to build proteins.
– Alanine helps to maintain and regulate blood sugar levels.
– Alanine strengthens the immune system by producing antibodies.
– Alanine produces energy by stimulating glucagon secretions from the pancreas.
– Alanine plays a role in supporting prostate health since alanine is present in prostate fluid.
– Alanine plays an important role in supplying nitrogen from peripheral tissue to liver.
– Alanine guards the body against toxic substances that are released in muscle cells when muscle protein breaks.

Excellent sources of alanine are:
– Alanine can also be manufactured from branched chain amino acids such as valine, leucine, and isoleucine.
– meat
– poultry
– fish
– eggs
– dairy products
– beans
– nuts
Deficiency of alanine is not known since it is produced in the body itself. It can occur in people whose diet is highly deficient in protein.
People with liver and kidney problems should not have very high intake of alanine.


– B-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid. It is the only naturally occurring b-amino acid. It is found in the brain, and is useful in the synthesis of pantothenic acid(vitamin B5).
– B-Alanine is classified as a non-proteinogenic amino acid, as it is not believed to be used in the building of proteins.
– B-alanine increases muscular strength & power output.
– B-Alanine increases muscle mass.
– B-Alanine increase anaerobic endurance.
– B-Alanine increases Aerobic Endurance.
