Sustamine® is an ingredient that works on multiple levels to help rehydrate the body and sustain energy levels during exertion. Sustamine® is a revolutionary dipeptide that combines pure L-Glutamine and L-Alanine (amino acids) and enhances electrolyte and water absorption in the intestines.This unique dipeptide helps 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.It also stimulates glycogen synthesis, inhibits muscle protein breakdown and promotes the synthesis of muscle protein.

Sustamine® is a dipeptide, a chain of two amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. This dipeptide structure allows the amino acids to be absorbed into cells more quickly and with less energy than a whole protein or a single amino acid on its own.(3) The first of the two amino acids, L-Glutamine, functions to inhibit muscle protein breakdown and promote the synthesis of muscle protein.(1) L-Glutamine also supports the integrity of the intestines by; lengthening the villi(finger-like protrusions from the intestinal wall) and fueling enterocytes (cells in the intestinal lining), to increase nutrient and water absorption, and maintaining mucus and preventing hyperpermeability, to prevent infection.(2) The second amino acid, L-Alanine, is needed to rebuild glycogen stores in the liver, after they decrease during prolonged exercise.(4) Glycogen is the source of energy most often used for exercise as it is a readily available form of glucose, the base unit of carbs. Sustamine provides your body with the overall support it needs to recover after exertion.
