Pharmaceutical grade glutamine powder
What is it?
- What is it: Ultra-pure l-glutamine
- Why take it: Replenishes exercise-depleted amino acid glutamine
- When to take it: After training
- Benefit: Supports muscle repair & growth
Amino acids can be thought of as the building blocks of muscle. Of all the different types of amino acid glutamine has the highest concentration in your muscles (approximately 60%) and is considered to be one of the most important building blocks required for muscle repair, growth and immune system function.
Because glutamine is depleted during exercise, it is important to ensure that a rich supply of the nutrient is available to support the effective repair and growth of trained muscles. Supplementing with pure Smart Glutamine is a simple method of replenishing intra-muscular levels of the amino acid after exercise, to support optimal training results and well-being.Why take it?
To repair, build and maintain muscle mass, your body requires an adequate supply of 21 amino acid building blocks. Glutamine accounts for approximately 60% of these compounds and is a key nutrient if you are regularly stressing your muscles by exercising. During intense training, the amino acids that make up your muscles are degraded and broken down by muscle contractions (known as muscle micro-trauma). This is why the body requires a rich supply of amino acids to repair and grow muscle tissue. However, due to the high concentration of glutamine in muscles, it is very important to maintain an optimal level of this particular nutrient. Unfortunately, glutamine is known as a 'semi-essential' amino acid, which means that although your body can produce it from other amino acids, the speed at which it can be synthesised is not sufficient to optimally support intense trainers. Furthermore, although eating a protein-rich diet will supply good levels of amino acids including glutamine, it may still not supply enough glutamine for fast recovery and growth. As a result, supplementing with glutamine can be extremely beneficial to weight trainers, endurance athletes and sports players. It enables you to supply muscles with very concentrated levels of the nutrient immediately after training, promoting rapid recovery and aiding growth when combined with a protein rich diet.
Glutamine is also an essential fuel for a healthy immune system, which is often compromised by exercise stress. Therefore, optimising your intake of glutamine can aid athletic well being and help you to train hard on a regular basis.When to take it?
Glutamine can be consumed at any time of day, but it is particularly beneficial after training, when the breakdown of the amino acids in your muscles is likely to be at its peak.Key benefitsReplenishes training depleted glutamine
Contains ultra-pure glutamine to replenish stores of the amino acid that are depleted during intense training.Supplies the most abundant aminio acid
Amino acids are the construction materials used for muscle production. Glutamine accounts for over 60% of these intra-muscular building blocks, therefore, supplementing it can help create the right environment for optimal growth and repair.Provides an important immune system nutrient
Glutamine is an essential fuel for the immune system. Therefore, replenishing exercise-depleted stores of this nutrient is vital for supporting athletic well being.
