Betancourt Nutrition Introduces BCAA Plus with Sustamine® L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine

Supplement May Help Increase Hydration During and After Intense Workouts*

Betancourt Nutrition is introducing BCAA Plus with Sustamine® L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine this December. It contains 1,500mg of Sustamine® and Taurine for better water absorption.*

BCAA Plus leverages Sustamine® L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, a dipeptide of glutamine that provides several substantial benefits such as enhanced recovery, immune system support, and increased metabolic rate. On top of these benefits, research suggests that Sustamine® is absorbed more than 200 percent better than standard L-glutamine.*

BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) are three essential amino acids that have a branch in their chemical structure. They are considered “essential” because the body does not produce them and they must be consumed in the diet. They are also widely considered to be the most anabolic of the essential amino acids and have an abundance of research showing that they promote recovery, muscle maintenance and growth. The most important of the BCAA’s for signaling protein synthesis is L-Leucine.

In addition to Sustamine®, BCAA Plus contains a 4:1:1 ratio of BCAA’s (4,000 mg of Leucine per serving) and a delayed release Leucine as well as several vitamins and minerals. This combination supports recovery from exercise and better protein synthesis. For more information about BCAA Plus, visit

About Sustamine

Sustamine® L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine is a stable dipeptide of L-Alanine and L-Glutamine. Sustamine is more easily absorbed by the body than complex protein molecules. This makes Sustamine a highly effective ingredient for hydration, endurance and recovery.* Vegetarian, allergen-free and the only GRAS L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, Sustamine is also tasteless, odorless, and stable in liquids.

Sustamine is an ingredient that works on multiple levels to help rehydrate the body and sustain energy levels during exertion. Sustamine combines L-Glutamine (the most important amino acid for stimulating muscle protein synthesis) and L-Arginine (an amino acid needed for rebuilding your body’s glycogen stores). Sustamine enhances performance and recovery in three primary ways. It helps:

  • Replace lost electrolytes and fluids
  • Repair damaged muscle proteins
  • Refill the body’s energy stores
