Muscle Feast L-Alanine:May help blood sugar levels, especially low levels
L-alanine plays a key role in glucose and nitrogen balance, it is important for maintaining energy
What is L-Alanine?
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.
L-alanine is considered a non-essential amino acid because the body can synthesize it internally, which means it is not essential to get this amino acid in your diet.
For this reason, L-alanine deficiencies are rare in humans who receive adequate protein intake. However, there may be causes where supplemental L-alanine can have health benefits.
The best foods for increasing L-alanine include lean meat cuts, fish, eggs and certain dairy products. Protein-rich produce like avocados, seeds, sprouts, nuts, beans and green leafy vegetables are also good sources.
What are the benefits of L-Alanine?
L-alanine is rated as possibly helpful for diabetes.
L-alanine benefits also include accommodating the synthesis of B vitamins, especially pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) and pyridoxine (vitamin B6).
Pantothenic acid is important for converting long-chain into simple carbohydrates like glucose. Pyridoxine helps to utilize available energy, enhance neuronal functioning and produce new red blood cells (erythrocytes).
Recommended dose of L-Alanine:
4000 mg taken 1-3 times per day.
Please consult with your medical professional before taking this supplement.
If you have liver or kidney disease, you should not take amino acids without asking your doctor. It is crucial that you always speak to a knowledgeable healthcare provider before taking any dietary supplements. This advice is also recommended for anyone suffering from a health condition.
Pregnant and nursing women should only take an amino acid after consulting your physician.
Any side effects of L-Alanine?
No adverse effects have been reported because of proper L-alanine use. Likewise, there are no known interactions with herbal supplements, medications, laboratory tests or foods.
L-alanine is known to stimulate glucagon release and increase the concentration of glucose in the blood in diabetic patients. Usage may cause or exacerbate hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels).
