BodyStrong 100% Pure L-Glutamine Powder
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is critical for many of its functions. It regulates cellular metabolism and serves as fuel for the cells of the intestinal and immune systems. Despite its diverse role in regulating many different body functions, glutamine’s real value comes in its extraordinary ability to work favorably with muscle preservation, especially during times of severe stress. No other amino acid has been observed to cross the blood-brain barrier as easily as glutamine can. Glutamine is also a key building block of protein, imperative in both muscle maintenance, as well as new growth. In accordance with proper training and nutrition, glutamine supplementation has been shown to make a significant difference in the duration and overall quality of exercise recovery.*
Athletes and Bodybuilders
Glutamine is a favorite supplement of athletes and bodybuilders because of its protein synthesizing, anti-catabolic and growth hormone elevating effects. Because of its high concentrations in muscle tissue, glutamine plays a critical role in supporting muscle repair and recovery. Since glutamine is the body's most highly valued amino acid, it is the first thing to leave the muscle cell for other processes in times of stress when sufficient glutamine is not consumed in the diet. That’s why glutamine supplementation is so important!*
Glutamine Protects Existing Muscle and Helps Grow New Muscle!
During times of extreme stress – from long gruelingly workouts or overtraining – glutamine supplementation is key. It prevents muscle catabolism (wasting) as well as facilitating new muscle growth and reducing recovery time. Glutamine supplementation will help you keep your prized muscle tissue while training hard.*
Reflecting on glutamine’s pivotal role in stimulating whole body muscle recovery, what if that extra recovery allowed you to squeeze in an extra workout each week? It’s usually that ONE extra workout that makes all the difference in your training and how you look in the mirror. Over a year, that can amount to 52 additional muscle-building workouts. There’s a lot of hypertrophy and gains to be realized in that time.
