Kyowa Hakko Sponsors Special Sustamine VendorWorks Seminar at SupplySide West

A special VendorWorks seminar at SupplySide West, Efficacy of SustamineTM L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine Ingestion During Hydration Stress Under Intense Exercise with Jay Hoffman, Ph.D, department chair and professor, College of New Jersey and clinical study investigator for Kyowa Hakko USA will be sponsored by Kyowa, the distributors of Sustamine™.

The Sustamine™ seminar takes place Thursday, November 12 from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. in room 10068 on the SupplySide trade show floor.
Sustamine™ L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, which is classified as GRAS (generally recognized as safe), is considered a “high-tech” amino acid dipeptide that promotes muscle rehydration, recovery and can be used as a source for energy refueling. Produced by a novel and cost effective patented fermentation technology, Sustamine™ L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine is available in powder form and is water-soluble into a clear solution. It is also odorless and tasteless. The stability of Sustamine™ L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine enables it to be formulated into a variety of food and beverage and healthcare applications. A recently completed clinical study on sports performance will also be discussed during the presentation.

Sustamine™ has been widely recognized in the supplement and food marketplaces. Most recently, Code Blue, a new energy beverage was introduced throughout the East using Sustamine™ in its formulation.
