This unique dipeptide ingredient combines the amino acids L-Alanine and L-Glutamine to help your body rehydrate, replenish and recover no matter how hard you push it. Sustamine’s™ dipeptide structure is quickly and easily absorbed by the body, which means your muscles get the amino acids they need faster. Get ready to trounce the toughest competition or outperform your own personal best. Rehydrate, replenish and recover with Sustamine.
The result of a novel enzymatic process that bonds two amino acids together naturally, this true dipeptide is much smaller than a complete protein and can be absorbed quickly to aid recovery. Clinically tested Sustamine is a breakthrough ingredient designed to help athletes go the distance by supporting the body’s ability to rehydrate, replenish and recover.*
Dipeptides speed recovery
Sustamine™ is manufactured through a novel enzymatic process that creates a true dipeptide. A dipeptide is a bonded chain of two amino acids, in this case, L-Glutamine and L-Alanine. Much smaller than a complete protein, a dipeptide can be transported directly into intestinal cells. The muscles get nutrients faster, and the length of time the body takes to recover is reduced.*
Dipeptides are even more efficient than single amino acids. To get into cells, dipeptides and amino acids must wait for a “transporter.” There are only three specific transporters, so the 20 amino acids and their dipeptide combinations compete for available transporters. Since a single transporter can carry a dipeptide, the dipeptide conveys two amino acids through the cell barrier at once. Through coupling for transport, dipeptides drastically reduce the time and energy needed for cellular recovery.
◦L-Glutamine has been shown to effectively modulate the body’s immune response to exercise.*
◦The combination of L-Glutamine and L-Alanine has been shown to support the body’s natural antioxidant defense against the oxidative stress produced by free radicals.*
◦Research indicates that combining glutamine with another amino acid to form a substrate is more stable and less subject to degradation at high temperatures than glutamine alone. This prolongs shelf life and increases quality.*
◦Stimulate glycogen synthesis*
◦Inhibit muscle protein breakdown*
◦Promote the synthesis of muscle protein*
◦Protect the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract, contributing to better nutrient absorption*
◦Stimulate the immune system*
