What is a 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 because dipeptides are more efficiently absorbed.

Why does Sustamine® combine L-Glutamine with L-Alanine?

Research shows that a combination of L-Alanine with L-Glutamine (Sustamine®) has superior absorption, stability and solubility compared to L-Glutamine.*  Sustamine is also more bioavailable than L-Glutamine and increases blood leveles of L-Glutamine 224% greater than L-Glutamine alone.*

How is Sustamine® manufactured?

Sustamine® is the result of a novel enzymatic process that bonds two amino acids together naturally, this true dipeptide is much smaller than a complete protein allowing it to be absorbed quickly to aid recovery.*
