In recent years most athletes have to understand the benefits of L- Glutamine. Now further research into this topic reveals, the benefits may be greater than we had first thought. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and makes up more than 60% of the intramuscular amino acid pool. L-Glutamine plays an important role in many body functions such as proper immune system function, the transfer of nitrogen between organs, precursor to DNA and regulation of protein synthesis and degradation.
Following an intense workout your body needs to replenish glutamine stores to aid in recovery. L-Glutamine can help increase muscle cell hydration and aid in protein synthesis. These and more functions of L-Glutamine can benefit athletes and bodybuilders by improving recovery and performance.
What is L-Glutamine?
L-Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in muscle tissue. It is a nonessential amino acid that can be produced by the body under normal conditions. However, under periods of stress, such as intense workouts, the body may have an increased demand making it a conditionally essential amino acid. Supplementation with L-Glutamine may be an effective way to support sufficient glutamine levels, which may aid in recovery and recuperation. How can L-Glutamine help with my training and nutrition program?
L-Glutamine may help with:
- Recovery and recuperation,
- Protecting muscle cells from breaking down, and
- Cell volumization.
|Serving Size:||1 scoop (5g)|
|Ingredients (Amount Per Serving)||5g L-Glutamine|
|Directions||What is the recommended use for L-Glutamine?
Here's one suggestion. During periods of high-intensity exercise or increased stress to the body, try 2 to 4 grams (1/2-1 tsp) 2 to 3 times daily. Taking L-Glutamine after workouts or before bedtime, times when muscle tissue typically undergoes repair and recuperation, could be particularly effective.
|Warning||Do not use if under the age of 18. Consult your physician prior to use if you are pregnant, contemplating pregnancy, nursing or have any medical condition.|
