Supplies 1.25g Each Of L-Glutamine & L-Alanine!
Prioritizing recovery is essential to your ability to continually train at a high level as well to realize the benefits of training.
Glutamine is an amino acid widely recognized for its role in protein synthesis and as one of the most popular supplements to take when looking to improve recovery from exercise.
The problem is that supplementing with regular L-Glutamine is usually gobbled up in the GI tract, meaning very little is transported into the bloodstream and thereby, does next to nothing for recovery.
However, research indicates that when L-Glutamine is combined with L-alanine, glutamine uptake is enhanced.
Primeval Labs Glutamine supplies 1.25g each of L-Glutamine and L-Alanine to support protein synthesis and exercise recovery.
Primeval Labs Glutamine is unflavored and can be mixed into your post-workout protein shake or taken with your serving of EAA Max.
Glutamine is the most abundant and versatile amino acid in the body
In fact, 80% of the body’s glutamine content is found in skeletal muscle
Glutamine plays a role in gluconeogenesis and immune function
The versatile amino acid can also be used as a source of energy, a substrate for nucleotide synthesis, and a modulator of intermediary metabolism of amino acids
It also promotes water uptake as well as increase in sodium ion (Na+) uptake and the release of potassium ions (K+), which increase the cell volume and hydration
Strenuous exercise leads to a reduction in l-Glutamine
Supplementation with free form L-Glutamine + L-alanine has been noted to increase plasma glutamine levels
Additional studies suggest that the combination of free form L-Glutamine + L-Alanine may improve the effects of resistance training in trained subjects
Beyond its role in protein synthesis, glutamine is also known to possess antioxidant and cytoprotective effects
L-Alanine is an non-essential amino acid that plays a role in carbohydrate metabolism, and immune function
It also provides energy for the brain, CNS, and skeletal muscle systems
Supplementation with free form L-alanine has been shown to spare L-glutamine metabolism in the gut and improve uptake by other tissues
