L-BAIBA metabolic effects on the Musculoskeletal System

β-aminoisobutyric Acid, BAIBA, as a racemic mixture has been shown to have beneficial metabolic effects. The L enantiomer, L-BAIBA, is a muscle metabolite produced during exercise from valine and D-BAIBA is produced by liver and kidneys from thymine. Research at Indiana University had shown that the L-BAIBA was 100-1000 fold more potent than the D […]
