Many athletes are familiar with glutamine, an amino acid known for its muscle-boosting benefits. But Sport Oxylent takes this benefit one step further by using Sustamine instead of glutamine alone.
Sustamine is a dipeptide ingredient that includes both L-glutamine (the most important amino acid for muscle protein synthesis) and L-alanine (an amino acid required for rebuilding glycogen stores in the body). Together, they offer enhanced performance, bioavailability, and stability.
So, why is Sustamine preferable over standard glutamine?
Because it is a dipeptide that is smaller than a complete protein, Sustamine is more quickly absorbed by the body than glutamine alone, which reduces the time and energy needed for cellular recovery. Plus, research shows that Sustamine can significantly increase the body’s absorption of glutamine, with one study showing blood level increases of 255 percent.
But the benefits don’t end with superior glutamine performance. The combination of alanine and glutamine together also boast a unique set of benefits.
First, they are a superior team when it comes to increasing electrolytes and water absorption — which can both be depleted during exercise. Together, they also have been shown to boost the body’s antioxidant defenses against free radicals. Plus, alanine brings to the table its ability to refill energy stores, with research showing that it may contribute up to 45 percent of the glucose released during exercise.
Finally, the bonding of alanine and glutamine results in a more stable ingredient that’s less likely to degrade over time than glutamine alone.
A 3-in1 Ingredient for a 3-in-1 Supplement
Sport Oxylent is unique in that it provides complete support for athletes at all stages of their workouts. Sustamine is a natural fit for this cutting edge formula, since it also provides comprehensive support…
- Before exercise: Sustamine boosts energy in the form of enhanced glycogen production.
- During exercise: Sustamine increases stamina by helping to sustain the gradual release of energy, enhancing electrolyte and fluid absorption in the intestine, and inhibiting muscle breakdown.
- After exercise: Sustamine supports faster recovery, replaces lost water and electrolytes, and helps repair and rebuild muscles.
