|General Reminder to All Member|
During exercise and intense training your body produces lactic acid which causes pH levels to drop, resulting in an acidic environment. This can quickly lead to cramping, fatigue, and tissue damage. BYLT™ contains a scientifically formulated blend of key ingredients designed to help you reduce muscle fatigue & soreness, rehydrate the body and sustain energy levels during exertion allowing your body to go beyond your limits.*
Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid. Beta-Alanine can be found as a component of a dipeptide in chicken and fish. In the body, beta-alanine is combined with the amino acid histidine to form carnosine. Muscle carnosine buffers the hydronium ions that lead to muscle fatigue and failure. Tested on a wide range of athletic performance, including sprinting, cycling, rowing, and weight lifting, CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is clinically suggested to:
CarnoSyn® is the #1 selling patented brand of beta-alanine in the world. More than 20 published studies support its use.
What is Sustamine?
A combination of L-Glutamine (the most important amino acid for stimulating muscle protein synthesis) and L-Alanine (an amino acid needed for rebuilding glycogen stores), Sustamine is the result of a patented fermentation process that creates a true dipeptide for the efficient absorption of these amino acids in the body.* Suitable for use in dietary supplements, energy/sport and electrolyte beverages, meal replacements, nutritional bars and more - Sustamine is the only dipeptide backed by oral human clinical results, and the only self-affirmed GRAS dipeptide of L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine for foods and beverages.
How do dipeptides speed absorption and recovery?
A dipeptide is a bonded chain of two amino acids, in this case, L-Glutamine and L-Alanine. Smaller than a complete protein, the dipeptide Sustamine is absorbed faster than individual amino acids. To get into cells, dipeptides and amino acids must wait for a “transporter”. A transporter can carry either a single amino acid or a dipeptide through the cell barrier at once. Through coupling for transport, dipeptides reduce the time and energy needed for cellular recovery.*
Why a dipeptide?
Why combine L-Glutamine with L-Alanine?
Combined into a single dipeptide, L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, Sustamine helps the body restore better than L-Glutamine or L-Alanine alone. Sustamine:
• Supplies vital nutrients.
Sustamine supplies the body with the protein precursors needed to rebuild muscle tissues after moderate and intense exertion.*
• Replenishes energy stores.*
Sustamine helps refill depleted glycogen stores.* In fact, studies show that L-Alanine may contribute up to 45% of the glucose released from the liver during prolonged exercise.*
• Increases electrolyte and water absorption.*
Studies suggest that a combination of L-Alanine with L-Glutamine may be more effective than L-Glutamine alone for increasing electrolyte and water absorption lost during exercise.*
• Modulates immune response.*
L-Glutamine has been shown to effectively modulate the body’s immune response to exercise.*
• Fights free radicals.*
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.*
• Increases product stability and quality.
Research indicates that combining L-Glutamine with another amino acid to form a substrate is more stable and less subject to degradation at high temperatures than L-Glutamine alone. This prolongs shelf life and enhances quality.*
