The amino acid L-Glutamine is the most abundant free-form amino acid found in muscle tissue. Like other amino acids, L-Glutamine plays a vital role in protein metabolism and muscle recovery. L-Glutamine is not only utilized by muscle tissue, but also in large quantities by the immune system and by the digestive system as well. During periods of intense training, levels of this amino acid can decline and our body may not be able to make enough of it. This can result in depleted L-Glutamine levels in our muscles and thus cause muscle-tissue breakdown.
When glutamine is in short supply, muscle tissue becomes the first to sacrifice it. Thus muscle tissue breaks down which leads to "flat" muscles, less strength and a very unfavorable environment for muscle growth.
L-Glutamine is used in an attempt to boost strength levels, enhance gains in muscle size and strength and prevent muscle tissue breakdown that can occur subsequent to strenuous exercise. By supplementing the diet with L-Glutamine, weight training athletes may be able to prevent muscle tissue breakdown and help promote cell volumization. BioTech 100% L-Glutamine is a quick and easy way to refill Glutamine to your muscles!
Take one serving (5g) before, and one serving after your workout.
We recommend this product for intermediate and professional body builders for the adequate amount of L- Glutamine supplementation.
