What is Beta-Alanine

BETA-ALANINE

In an ideal world, you’d be able to train as long as you wanted and never see a decline in effort, intensity, or power.Unfortunately, the world isn’t ideal, and we each have a limit on how long our strength, power, and endurance last in a workout.Some of us have more experience and deeper energy reserves than others, which is why some of you can handle those hour plus training sessions in the gym.But, for the rest of us that don’t have superhuman stamina, wouldn’t it be great if there was a supplement that could help us last longer and stay stronger all workout long? You bet it would!Lucky for you, such an ingredient exists, and it’s one of Our Ingredients in Our AnnBer Rejuvenating Hydrolised peptide Collagen ShakeIt’s called beta-alanine, and this article explains everything you want to know about this ingredient.

WHAT IS BETA-ALANINE?

Beta-alanine is a nonessential amino acid, meaning your body can create it from other amino acids and doesn’t have to obtain it from food as it must with essential amino acids.

WHAT DOES BETA-ALANINE DO?

Your body primarily uses beta-alanine to synthesize another amino acid called carnosine, which is stored in the brain and muscles and helps reduce fatigue. Beta-alanine does this by combining with L-Histidine, one of the nine essential amino acids.

BENEFITS OF CARNOSINE

One of the main roles of carnosine in our muscles is to maintain a stable pH level, which it does by regulating acidity.

When you’re exercising, muscles contract, and as a result, more and more acid accumulates in the muscle.

This build-up of acid impairs the ability of your muscles to keep contracting, and at some point, the muscle fails to contract any more[1], thereby causing you to end your training set.

Carnosine serves as an acid buffer and helps counteract this acid build up, which increases the amount of work your muscles can do before they become fatigued.

Therefore, if we can increase the amount of carnosine in the muscle, we can have greater buffering capacity against acid build up and be able to train longer, thus getting bigger, better gains.

However, in order to get those increased carnosine stores, you need beta-alanine.

Without adequate amounts of the nonessential amino acid, your body can’t produce carnosine efficiently, meaning your buffering capacity is limited, and as a result, so is your endurance and stamina.

WHY NOT SUPPLEMENT WITH ONLY CARNOSINE?

At this point, you might be wondering why you would need to supplement with beta-alanine at all. If carnosine is what we’re really after, why not just supplement with carnosine?

Carnosine isn’t absorbed all that well when supplemented orally.

When it’s ingested, your body actually breaks it down into beta-alanine and histidine. Once those free form amino acids enter a muscle cell, your body then uses them to produce carnosine.

So, if you think about it, you’d essentially be supplementing with carnosine in order to get beta alanine, which would subsequently be used to produce beta-alanine.

By supplementing with beta-alanine directly, you eliminate an unnecessary step in the process and help speed things up a bit. Additionally, research has shown that supplementation with beta-alanine is incredibly effective for increasing muscle carnosine levels.[2]

BENEFITS OF BETA-ALANINE

Greater Endurance: The major benefit beta-alanine comes from its ability to enhance your muscle endurance and stamina during training.

Numerous studies and a comprehensive meta-analysis have confirmed the ergogenic benefits of beta-alanine[3,4] noting it can lead to significant improvements in endurance when exercises last between 60-240 seconds. This makes beta-alanine a must-have supplement if you use a lot of supersets, drop sets, forced sets during your resistance-training workouts. It’s also ideal if you like to do circuit-training and/or CrossFit-style workouts.

AnnBer Rejuvenating COLLAGEN Shake – Could Prevent Bone Loss

Your bones are made mostly of collagen, which gives them structure and helps keep them strong.  

Just as the collagen in your body deteriorates as you age, so does bone mass. This may lead to conditions like osteoporosis, which is characterized by low bone density and linked to a higher risk of bone fractures.

Studies have shown that taking collagen supplements may have certain effects in the body that help inhibit the bone breakdown that leads to osteoporosis.

In one study, women took either a calcium supplement combined with 5 grams of collagen or a calcium supplement and no collagen daily for 12 months.

By the end of the study, the women taking the calcium and collagen supplement had significantly lower blood levels of proteins that promote bone breakdown than those taking only the calcium.

Another study found similar results in 66 women who took 5 grams of collagen daily for 12 months.

The women who took the collagen showed an increase of up to 7% in their bone mineral density (BMD), compared with women who did not consume collagen.

BMD is a measure of the density of minerals, such as calcium, in your bones. Low BMD is associated with weak bones and the development of osteoporosis.

SUMMARY

Consuming collagen supplements may help reduce the risk of bone disorders like osteoporosis. They have the potential to help increase BMD and lower levels of proteins in the blood that stimulate bone breakdown.

AnnBer Rejuvenating Collagen Shake – Heart Health

a Collagen Supplement Promotes heart health

Researchers have theorized that taking collagen supplements may help reduce the risk of heart-related conditions.

Collagen provides structure to your arteries, which are the blood vessels that carry blood from your heart to the rest of your body. Without enough collagen, arteries may become weak and fragile. This may lead to atherosclerosis, a disease characterized by the narrowing of the arteries. Atherosclerosis has the potential to lead to heart attack and stroke.

In one study, 31 healthy adults took 16 grams of collagen daily for 6 months. By the end, they had experienced a significant reduction in measures of artery stiffness, compared with before they started taking the supplement. Additionally, they increased their levels of HDL “good” cholesterol by an average of 6%. HDL is an important factor in the risk of heart conditions, including atherosclerosis.

Nevertheless, more studies on the role of collagen supplements in heart health are needed.

SUMMARY

Taking collagen supplements may help reduce the risk factors associated with heart conditions such as atherosclerosis.

AnnBer Rejuvenating Collagen

Our AnnBer Hydrolysed Bovine Collagen type I and III is made with the finest and highest quality natural ingredients.

Consuming hydrolysed collagen peptides allows your body to maximize the benefits that collagen has to offer. Our hydrolysed collagen peptides are a pure and bioactive protein, derived from 100% natural sources and is free from any side-effects. These bio-active peptides contain more than 97 percent protein (on a dry weight basis). Their health benefits on mobility and skin beauty are backed by published scientific studies.

What is Collagen:
Collagen is the most abundant protein present in your body accounting for about a third of its protein composition that provides structure to much of your body.  It’s one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts as well, including blood vessels, corneas (white part of the eye) and teeth.  You can think of it as the “glue” that holds all these things together. In fact, the word comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.

Hydrolysed collagen (also known as collagen peptides) is collagen that’s been broken down into more easily dissolvable amino acids, available a collagen powder dietary supplement. There is evidence that collagen supplementation can support skin, nails, joint and muscle health.  Our AnnBer Rejuvenating Collagen consist of hydrolysed collagen (collagen hydrolysate) type I and III.  These have already broken the large protein down into smaller peptides, which are more easily absorbed in the body.

What does Collagen do in your body?

Different collagen types, different roles.  In our body there are many different forms of collagen (about 16 types) and it’s found throughout the body, providing structure and support.  80% to 90% are either type I, II or III collagen.  The fibril structure of each type is the same:  three long chains of amino acids in a compact triple helix structure but at molecular level, there are important differences.

The four main types are type I, II, III and IV.  Our AnnBer Rejuvenating Peptan Hydrolysed Collagen Shake consist of the two most important collagen peptides being I and III.

What does Type I Collagen do: strong skin, tendons & ligaments

Type I collagen forms the longest triple helices. This makes the structure of type I collagen extremely suitable to form strong fibre networks, that can be stretched without breaking. Those elastic structures provide support and flexibility to our body.  Type I collagen is found throughout the human body: it makes up more than 90% of organic bone mass, as well as comprising a major part of our skin, tendons and ligaments

What does Type III Collagen do: skin recovery & elasticity.

Type III collagen is often found with type I. For instance, when our skin recovers from damage, type III collagen appears as scar tissue. It can also be found in our blood vessel walls, playing a key role in supporting elasticity

Your body does contain collagen, let’s have a look how it is distributed in our bodies.

Different cells in our body are responsible for the production of collagen.  The cells use specific amino acids as building blocks for the long chains that are wound together to the large collagen triple helix.  Several helices are then organized into the strong fibres that provide structural tissue support, flexibility and the ability to withstand forces.

  • Our Skin: Collagen constitutes 70% of the skin’s dry mass content.  A key component of the skin’s structure, collagen fibres provide the infrastructure for elastin, which maintains skin elasticity, and for hyaluronic acid to trap moisture.
  • Tendons: Tendons are strong fibrous connective tissues that connect muscles to bones.  During muscle construction the tendon’s role is to transmit forces and withstand tension.  Tendons contain 85% collagen type I and proteoglycans.
  • Joint Cartilage: Joint cartilage is made up of cellular building blocks (chondrocytes), which produce an extracellular matrix, consisting of collagen and proteoglycans (mainly aggrecan).  Collagen fibres make up 70 & of cartilage and are responsible for its structure and strength, while proteoglycans serve as lubricant to the joint.
  • Bones: Representing around 90% of organic bone mass, collagen provides the structural framework on which calcium and other minerals are anchored.  Collagen fibres also provide bone flexibility.

When do we start losing collagen?

In our adult years, our bodies begin to produce less collagen. This process begins when we are around the age of 30 and accelerates in our 40s – leading to the inevitable visual and noticeable signs of aging. Collagen loss is a natural process, but other factors such as exposure to UV, pollution, and lifestyle choices can lead to early or more intense signs of aging.

How does collagen loss affect our bodies?

Because collagen is so important, losing it impacts many aspects of our bodies, let’s have a look how it impacts different parts of our bodies.

  • Skin: Collagen provides firmness and structure to our skin.  As collagen breakdown dominates over production with age, our skin becomes dehydrated and thinner, and signs of aging start to appear.
  • Bones: As collagen levels and the content of minerals decrease, our bones get weaker. Gradually, this causes them to become more fragile and breakable.
  • Joints: Aging wears and tears on the joint cartilage, reducing their well-functioning. This results in joint discomfort, making it harder for us to stay active as we age.
  • Muscles: The loss of collagen by aging means a gradually less of it in the connective tissue that bundles muscle fibres into a strong and functioning muscle. Aging is linked to decreased muscle strength and function, which affects our balance, gait, and overall mobility.

Things That Damage Collagen
There are ways you can help your body preserve and protect collagen by avoiding the following collagen-destroying behaviours.
• Sugar and refined carbs: Sugar interferes with collagen’s ability to repair itself. Minimize your consumption of added sugar and refined carbs.
• Too much sunshine: Ultraviolet radiation can reduce collagen production. Avoid excessive sun exposure.
• Smoking: Smoking reduces collagen production. This can impair wound healing and lead to wrinkles.
Some autoimmune disorders, such as lupus, can also damage collagen.

Benefits of a Collagen Supplement
Our AnnBer Rejuvenating Peptan hydrolysed Collagen have already broken the large protein down into smaller peptides (Peptan), which are more easily absorbed in the body.

According to studies, supplemental collagen may help improve skin texture and muscle mass and reduce osteoarthritis pain.

There aren’t many studies on collagen supplements, but those that exist show promise for benefits in the following areas:

  • Muscle mass: A 2015 study in elderly men showed that a combination of collagen peptide supplements and strength training increased muscle mass and strength more than a placebo.  (Placebo means a substance that has no therapeutic effect, used as a control in testing new drugs)
    • Arthritis: Another study gave supplements to people suffering from osteoarthritis. They experienced a significant decline in pain over the 70-day study, compared to those who took a placebo.
    • Skin elasticity: Women who took a supplement showed improvements in skin elasticity in a 2014 study. Collagen is also used in topical treatments to improve the appearance of skin by minimizing lines and wrinkles.
    Some alternative medicine practitioners also advocate using collagen supplements to treat leaky gut syndrome.

How to Supplement
When considering supplements, you should look for a high-quality source.
Our AnnBer Rejuvenation hydrolysed Peptan Collagen peptide comes in a powder for that can be easily mixed with water, milk or smoothies.  It has a strawberry & lime flavour which is very pleasant.

Interesting Fact all collagen starts off as procollagen.
Your body makes procollagen by combining two amino acids: glycine and proline. This process uses vitamin C to do so and this is the main reason Our AnnBer Rejuvenating Collagen has added ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) build into the (product) formulation.  With adequate vitamin C supplement your body can produce more collagen and rejuvenate the body from within.

More information and added benefits on some active ingredients in Our AnnBer Rejuvenation Hydrolysed Peptan Collagen

– Beta-alanine enhances performance by increasing exercise capacity and decreasing muscle fatigue. It also has antioxidant, immune-enhancing and anti-aging properties. You can get beta-alanine from foods that contain carnosine or through supplements. The recommended dose is 2–5 grams daily.

– Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It’s involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.

– Fibersol,, digestion resistant maltodextrin, is a low viscosity soluble dietary fibre that clinical research has indicated helps support or maintain intestinal regularity. Clinical studies show that Fibersol helps to relieve occasional constipation and select studies show that it improves stool consistency.

– Zinc is a naturally occurring mineral. Zinc is important for growth and for the development and health of body tissues. Zinc gluconate is used to treat and to prevent zinc deficiency. Zinc gluconate may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
L-Histidine is an essential amino acid that plays a role in protein building and is a precursor to histamine production. Because of this, it works to address upper respiratory concerns. Its anti-inflammatory properties help ease joint pain and stiffness, and its antifungal properties help ease certain infections.

– CoQ10 has been shown to help improve heart health and blood sugar regulation, assist in the prevention and treatment of cancer and reduce the frequency of migraines. It could also reduce the oxidative damage that leads to muscle fatigue, skin damage and brain and lung diseases.

  •  Moringa Yes our Collagen contains Moringa as well.  Moringa has many important vitamins and minirals.

Coronavirus: How to Protect Yourself

Coronavirus: How to Protect Yourself

You can also read it online at:  https://annber.co.za/2020/03/22/coronavirus-how-to-protect-yourself/

 We at AnnBer Natural Skincare see you all as part of our community and family and as such, we consider it our duty to contribute, in a positive and proactive way, to awareness regarding Covid-19. The purpose of this informational post is apposite to information-sharing and education on the best ways to protect ourselves and our families, not to spread panic or fearmongering.

Keeping good hygiene and washing your hands and using an alcohol-based sanitizer is the most effective way to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

Who This Virus Affects?

Firstly, if you are a healthy adult and you catch the Coronavirus, you have a high chance of being fine. It is like catching the ‘flu. It is more likely to be serious if elderly people, young children or those with pre-existing health conditions, weakened immune systems or weakened respiratory systems contract it. Keep your immune system up and you will be quite strong enough to fight it off. There is no need to panic.

Symptoms and Spread

The Covid-19 virus spreads from a sick person (who may or may not be displaying symptoms) to others via droplets and germs getting into the eyes, nose and mouth. But a sick person’s saliva can get onto other things such as hands, doorknobs, surfaces on public transport and public places, digital devices and pretty much anything they come into contact with. WASH YOUR HANDS, THOROUGHLY and use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 

Symptoms 

Cough, Sore throat, Fever, Shortness of breath

There is currently a known incubation period of 1-14 days, should You experience any of the symptoms.

Prevention Measures

These are science backed, research-based answers that are correct and up to date at time of publishing. For more reading please go to the World Health Organization website: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019 

And the Centers for Communicable Diseases website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html 

Firstly, create a plan for your family/household. Sit everyone down and have a discussion about it. Make a list of emergency contacts should you need them in the future. Set up a protocol for your family to follow if anyone comes in contact with the virus. If anyone in your family is more at risk, e.g. an elderly or immuno-compromised person, then make sure they know what to do.

Prevention

Wash your hands thoroughly with soap or an antibacterial handwash. This is the number one way to protect yourself from germs. Wash long enough to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ twice. And washing thoroughly means washing the back of your hands, between your fingers and under your nails for at least 20 seconds.

Regularly disinfect and clean frequently used and touched surfaces.

Avoid touching other people’s faces.

Avoid touching your face, mouth, nose or eyes with your hands, as hands pick up germs. 

Practice respiratory hygiene: cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing.

Maintain a distance of at least 2 meters between yourself and anyone who is sneezing or coughing.

Avoid sharing items such as utensils, towels, tools etc.

Sick people can wear a mask to help contain their germs, and you can wear a mask to lessen the chance of contracting other’s germs, but this is by no means a failsafe and we do not recommend stock piling masks. Medical personnel and the sick need them.

Travel

If you are travelling, follow the prevention measures above. When you return home, self-monitor for 14 days to ensure you are not displaying any symptoms.

What to Do If You Are Feeling Unwell, Displaying Symptoms or Have Recently Been in Contact with Someone Who Has The Virus

Self-quarantine. If your workplace does not have a protocol in place, call in sick and explain why you are staying home. Stay home for the full 14 days and avoid all public areas and human contact.  Then phone your doctor or clinic and ask for advice – they will be able to direct you on what to do next.  Do not simply go to your doctor, clinic or hospital – you could be spreading germs. Call in first and ask for advice. If you do go to a public medical Centre and you are unwell, wear a  mask.  Wear a  face mask to help prevent the spread of your germs to anyone you come in contact with.  Treat the symptoms as best you can. Treat any coughs, sore throats and fevers. Do not take antibiotics (unless it is prescribed by your medical professional) – antibiotics are not effective against the coronavirus.

Protect and Boost Your Immune System

The old adage “prevention is better than cure” holds strong here, so you will want to boost your immune system. Healthy people are unlikely to exhibit acute illness or death from coronavirus. Make sure you are eating well, exercising, getting enough sleep and managing stress levels. Take any immune boosters that work well for you.

What Products Can Be Used

Barring a very few, most products have not been tested for efficacy specifically against the coronavirus. So, use what you know to be antibacterial, antiviral and effective against germs. The CDC does recommend using minimum 60% alcohol for disinfecting. 

Isopropyl Alcohol

Right now, alcohol is the most effective preventative measure. Use alcohol-based detergents to wipe surfaces. Use at least a 60% strength alcohol, as recommended by the CDC. You can use higher percentages too.  Alcohol-based soaps, handwashes and surface cleaners are the most effective. Alcohol kills 99% of germs, bacteria and viruses on hands.

 Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is an excellent disinfectant and is considered environmentally safe as it breaks down to water and oxygen

How to use:  3% hydrogen peroxide undiluted in a spray bottle.  Spray onto surfaces, leave on for several minutes then wipe off. This is a bit expensive but we do have stock available should you wish to order from us.

Now that you are armed with knowledge of what to do and how to protect yourself, there is absolutely no reason to panic. Simply keep hygienic and healthy and carry on.
