What is L-alanine benefits?
L-alanine benefits may include natural protection from low blood glucose levels (hypoglycemia) and increased energy.
L-alanine is the L isomer of the proteinaceous nonessential alpha amino
acid alanine. It is commonly called “alanine” or “alpha-alanine”. It
should not be confused with beta-alanine; an amino acid used to produce
the dipeptide carnosine.
Current uses for L-alanine include prevention and/or treatment for urea cycle disorders, diabetes, glycogen storage disease, hypoglycemia, stress, diarrhea-related dehydration, fatigue, liver disease and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, enlarged prostate).
L-alanine is one of most prevalent amino acids in the human body; accounting for nearly 8% of the primary structure of numerous proteins. Most human L-alanine is synthesized inside muscle cells. Inside the liver, L-alanine is converted to pyruvate; a compound that is integral for glucose synthesis.
HOW IT WORKS:
§Supports muscle growth & workout performance
§Improves athletic stamina & power output
§Increases muscle carnosine levels
