RECOVER / REPAIR / RESTORE
Glutamine has been shown to:
- Help maintain immune system function.
- Facilitate muscle glycogen recovery after intense physical activities (weight training).
- Restore glutamine levels required for healthy muscle growth after intense physical exercise (e.g. sprints, jumping).
To glutamine, or not to glutamine – that is the question. Well, it’s really not much of a question, considering the potential benefits of a high quality, high purity glutamine are far too numerous to ignore. Despite the widely held belief that the scientific jury on glutamine is out, a fair amount of evidence exists to suggest that glutamine is beneficial to the human body in a variety of applications. Most of the problem, however, arises in the paltry servings that most companies throw into their formulations – effectively relegating glutamine to the “window dressing” category. Not us. We are proud to feature glutamine, at effective servings, in our products. And we are even prouder to provide you a high quality source of pure glutamine that you can add to your already killer stack.
Glutamine is one of the body’s most abundant amino acids, and is an amino acid known as, “conditionally essential.” This means that while the body is capable of producing it under normal physiological conditions, it may require additional dietary sources under certain conditions such as athletic training or stress. In these conditions, glutamine takes on a critical role in the metabolism of muscular protein, in the volumization of cells, and the reduction of cell catabolism (particularly in stressful or traumatic situations). Glutamine has additionally been demonstrated to be immunoprotective in stressful situations, meaning that supplementation with glutamine may help to maintain immune system function.
