"Juven" is a Latin word meaning "young" or "youthful" and is the origin of the word "rejuvenate". Juven is also the name a very popular muscle-support supplement formulated to rejuvenate muscle, especially but not exclusively in older individuals. Juven supports the growth and maintenance of muscle tissue with a patented blend of three amino acid compounds.
HMB is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine, and is often used a supplement by bodybuilders and strength athletes. HMB's main benefits are minimizing muscle loss, maintaining muscle mass and supporting wound repair during recovery or long periods of inactivity.
Another amino acid ingredient in Juven, L-arginine, is not an essential nutrient in normal circumstances but becomes an essential nutrient in humans under severe metabolic stress such as malnutrition syndromes or recovery from wounds or surgery. Arginine also supports immune function and the release of anabolic human growth hormone.
Like L-arginine, L-glutamine is another conditionally-essential amino acid involved in many different processes throughout the body: muscle growth and maintenance, pH balance, detoxification, immune function, and intestinal function. Muscle tissue in the body contains most of our glutamine and muscle acts as the body's reservoir of glutamine. In other words, muscle tissue can and will be cannibalized (broken down) for glutamine when the diet or natural production fails to meet demands. If you're trying to maintain bodyweight and muscle mass, that's the last thing you want happening. Therefore, as bodybuilders have known for decades, supplemental glutamine is essential for anyone trying to build or preserve muscle mass.
Ross Nutrition has formulated Juven into a pleasant tasting drink mix that should be easy for anyone to use. All three of Juven's primary ingredients are natural, very easy on the stomach and unlikely to produce any unpleasant reactions whatsoever. Any adult can use Juven to safely support muscle growth and lean body mass.
