NOW L-Glutamine Powder contains only 100% pure micronized l-glutamine and absolutely nothing else. L-glutamine powder has been shown to enhance recovery from intense training, facilitate new muscle growth and prevent muscle catabolism. Glutamine is essential in building new lean tissue and also in many other processes in the body, like normal brain function. During times of stress and dieting, the body resorts to using glutamine from muscle cells when not available in the diet. Supplementing with l-glutamine ensures that your body will not have to tap into precious muscle stores to obtain glutamine.
Just like all products from NOW, expect nothing but the highest quality with their premium l-glutamine powder. It mixes easy, stores well over time and tastes completely flavorless, just like pure glutamine should. If you’re looking for 100% pure glutamine and absolutely nothing else in your mix, go with NOW L-Glutamine Powder and experience the difference.
Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, the body may require more glutamine than it can produce. Under these circumstances glutamine may be considered a "conditionally essential" amino acid. Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (as anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (ummune system lymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes). In addition, glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance and a nitrogen transporter.
