Supports Recovery And Strengthens Immune System!Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in your skeletal muscle. During intense training, glutamine levels are greatly depleted in your body, which decreases strength, stamina and recovery. Supplementing with L-glutamine can minimize muscle breakdown and improve protein metabolism.
- Support recovery after training
- Maintain healthy immune system
- Increased muscle protein synthesis
- Crucial for strength activities
- Stimulates natural growth hormones
- Volumize muscle cells
Glutamine is the most abundant single amino acid in the blood and in the intracellular free amino acid pool (most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue). It comprises 61% of the amino acid pool in skeletal muscle. Glutamine's unique structure, containing two nitrogen side chains, consists of 19% nitrogen - making it the primary transporter of nitrogen into the muscle cell. In fact, glutamine alone is responsible for 35% of the nitrogen that gets into the muscle cell. Glutamine literally drives muscle building nitrogen into the muscle cell where it is synthesized for growth.
Glutamine concentrations fall markedly after training and remain low until complete recovery. What this means is, the very rigors of weight training "leak" nitrogen carrying glutamine from muscle tissue. This fall in glutamine is catabolic to muscle tissue - "The Training Paradox". Supplementing with glutamine spares free glutamine in muscle tissue, counteracts the fall in muscle protein synthesis, and improves nitrogen balance. Glutamine overcomes "The Training Paradox".
You train with weights to build muscle. The more intensely you train, and the heavier the overload you subject your muscles to, the greater the growth response will be.
Glutamine is a key factor in muscle growth, and controlling the skeletal muscle/body glutamine gradient is critical in maintaining and building muscle tissue. The higher the muscle glutamine levels you can maintain, the less chance you have of falling into catabolism and the faster muscle will grow.
Now for the exciting news- In a recent release of the prestigious American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the results of a study on glutamine revealed that...
"A single 2 gram oral dose of glutamine elevated circulating natural growth hormone levels by over 430%! That's right - 430%!"
Significant? You bet your ass it is. With L-Glutamine you'll be able to effortlessly increase your natural growth hormone levels by over 430%!
By keeping a consistently high level of circulating natural growth hormone, you are able to combat the catabolic effects of weight training, harness the anabolic activity of increased glucose and amino acid uptake, improve whole body nitrogen retention, and increase lean tissue protein accrual. Supplementing with L-Glutamine may just be the most effective way of assisting new muscle growth!
