Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 24 hours
Number of Subjects 10
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
In subjects who reported to the lab in a dehydrated state who then, 45 minutes prior to an exercise test (75% VO2 max until fatigue), rehydrated with water or one of two solutions containing alanylglutamine (0.05g/kg or 0.2g/kg) noted that while, relative to the trial with no rehydration there was a relative increase in performance change, but overall supplementation did not improve overall time until fatigue relative to water.

Relative to the same protocol of which water was used, alanylglutamine failed to differntially affect cardiovascular parameters and other hormones and cytokines did not differ from water.
