Category - L-alanyl-L-glutamine [Sustamine]

L-alanyl-L-glutamine [also known as Sustamine™] is the combination of glutamine and alanine. Glutamine supplementation alone has shown to enhance fluid and electrolyte absorption but gives inconsistent effects probably due to stability issues of glutamine in the gut. When glutamine is combined with alanine the ability to enhance electrolyte and fluid absorption appears to be greater than glutamine alone and it appears to have greater stability. Studies show that rehydrating with L-alanyl-L-glutamine minimizes the destructive effects of dehydration.
