Dipeptiven 20Gm Infusion

Manufacturer: Fresenius Kabi India Pvt Ltd
Medicine composition: L-alanyl-L-glutamine
Prescription vs.OTC: Prescription by Doctor required

Dipeptiven 20Gm Infusion also known as alanylglutamine, is a dipeptide molecule, consisting of L-glutamine and L-alanine, two amino acids. Dipeptiven 20Gm Infusion is sometimes supplemented for prolonged physical exercise as it can enhance electrolyte absorption and improve endurance and performance. Tests on rodents suggest Dipeptiven 20Gm Infusion is more successful at increasing muscular glutamine levels after supplementation than glutamine itself. This is because glutamine is absorbed better via the liver and intestines after supplementation. Since Dipeptiven 20Gm Infusion is a dipeptide molecule it means that it contains more than one amino acid for the intestines to absorb, allowing glutamine to reach the muscles.

Adding Dipeptiven 20Gm Infusion to any rehydration solution will be significantly more effective at increasing water and electrolyte absorption than consuming either a glutamine or glucose-containing solution. Current studies on Dipeptiven 20Gm Infusion use a dose of 1-3g a day. Overdosage of Dipeptiven 20Gm Infusion may result in chills, nausea and vomiting.
