Training and race formula ideally suited for sustained energy
PhD Nutrition has created GlycoDurance, an innovative training and race fuel with the lowest serum osmolarity in the industry.
GlycoDurance contains three key elements: a scientific blend of electrolytes, Sustamine L-alanyl-L-glutamine to quickly release glucose into the bloodstream and boost the body's recovery time, and Cluster Dextrin, which passes through the stomach faster than any other carbohydrate source. That means a quick but sustained release of glucose into the bloodstream.
Sustamine works to enhance the absorption of electrolytes in the powder blend, as well as improve water absorption in the intestines while also stimulating glycogen production. Muscles must be hydrated and engorged with glycogen to perform at their peak and, when it's all over, the body needs to recover.
That's where Sustamine comes in. Glutamine, the key component of Sustamine is the most abundant single amino acid in the body, and it's considered conditionally essential during times when the body undergoes large amounts of stress — like during intense endurance events, training or dealing with the challenges of everyday life.
