- Spare Muscle Glutamine Stores and Reduce Muscle Protein Catabolism
- Stimulate Glucose Synthesis to Promote Recovery from Exercise
- Promote Enhanced Recovery from Training
- Support Arginine and Nitric Oxide (NO) Levels
- May Improve the H+ (Acid) - and Ammonia-Buffering Capacity of the Body
- May Improve Thermogenesis and Metabolic Rate
- Support Blood Glucose and Energy Levels
L-Glutamine is a huge favourite within the world of athletics, body building, strength training and any high-intensity activity. Body builders have traditionally used L-Glutamine when preparing for a competition and embarking on a restricted-calorie diet. Athletes and strength trainers similarly have used L-Glutamine in an attempt compliment a healthy diet. L-Glutamine is an amino acid found in proteins of all life forms. It is classified as a semi-essential or conditionally essential amino acid. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, and plasma glutamine levels are the highest of any amino acid. L-glutamine is predominantly synthesized and stored in skeletal muscle. The amino acid L-glutamate is metabolized to L-glutamine in a reaction catalyzed by the enzyme glutamine synthase, a reaction which, in addition to L-glutamate, requires ammonia, ATP and magnesium.
L-Glutamine is ideal for:
- Any athlete taking part in a physically demanding activity
- High energy sports participants looking to supplement a high protein diet aimed at building lean muscle
- Body builders and athletes on a low calorie nutritional plan
- All athletes seeking maximum physical performance
SPEED UP MUSCLE RECOVERY AND MUSCLE GROWTH AND STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
The most abundant amino acid in human muscles, as it accounts for as much as 60% of all free form amino acids.
Provides better protein synthesis and reduces the extent of catabolic processes.
The body needs it for the good functioning of the immune system and bowel.
Under stressful conditions the body is not capable of producing it in sufficient quantities.
Physical exertion, exercise and stressful situations, such as illness, injury, infection, or surgery, can reduce the amount of glutamine in the body.
Stimulates the secretion of growth hormone.
The use of glutamine is recommended for all types of sports activities and also for individuals who lead a stressful life.
