What is it
Though it is not an essential amino acid, glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. It plays a fundamental role in the muscle-making phenomenon -- protein synthesis. It can also minimize muscle breakdown, as well as reduce muscle soreness.
What it does
During periods of intense exercise, glutamine levels deplete very quickly, which limits protein synthesis and can cause your muscles to breakdown.
5g of L-Glutamine
Helps to minimize the breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism. Low levels of glutamine is associated with decreases in strength, stamina, and recovery.
Increase growth hormone (GH) levels.
Increase metabolic rate during exercise and at rest.
Enhances immune function.
When to take
Mix one rounded teaspoon of Glutamine Powder with 8 oz. water or your favorite beverage.
Because it is unflavored, it mixes easily with just about anything. Add it right into your pre-workout, post-workout shake, or with your BCAAs. One teaspoon of Glutamine Powder will give you more glutamine than 5 jumbo eggs, 4 oz of lean beef, or a chicken breast!
