"Once upon a time, the sons of Dwarf King Ivaldi created the strongest weapon of all. The mighty Gungnir, the spear of All-Father Odin. Born from the all consuming fire at the end of the world, forged with an iron will, unstoppable and strong, it never fails to hit his target. The fire may burn everything and yet it creates the strongest weapons. It is your decision, because it only takes a spark to create a huge flame. The hardest steel is forged in the hottest fire. In the end, it's important that the fire in you will burn more powerfully than the consuming fire around you. Only then will you become Gungnir, who defies everything - the weapon of the gods, strong and unstoppable. "
Brachial power and enormous amounts of muscle mass that will freeze any opponent with fear are just two of many important aspects for any Northman. At least as important is that you recover as fast as possible after brutal and merciless battles, and will quickly repair your injured muscles, to rebuilding them stronger than before, to enable them to easily withstand even harder strains in the future.
Anything that will help you to reach this goal can be considered as one of the strongest weapons in your arsenal and is at least as important as your sword or deadly Nordic battle ax. For this reason, we created Gungnir – a powerful product to promote and accelerate your recovery after brutal and exhausting battles against the strongest enemies and the cold steel of brutal weights in the gym, as well as to boosts your resistance against disease. We named it after the strongest of all the weapons of the Northern gods - Gungnir, the spear of Odin, that never misses its target and that was forged in the all consuming fire at the end of the world with an iron will by the sons of the Dwarf King Ivaldi.
Our Gungnir is designed to support your post-workout recovery and healing of microtrauma and other damage to your muscles after hard fights in the gym, so you'll be ready for the next battle faster. At the same time, Gungnir promotes the function of your immune system to protect you from weakening mundane diseases such as a cold or a flu, which may impair your fighting power. But that's not all. In addition, Gungnir will promote and accelerate your muscle growth by increasing your muscle protein synthesis and promoting a positive nitrogen balance.
When taken on an empty stomach, our Gungnir can increase your growth hormone secretion by up to 400%, which will boost your muscle growth and your fat loss. At the same time, Gungnir will increase your muscle cell volume, making your fast-growing muscles look even bigger and more awesome, and showing any potential adversary that he should better not mess with you. In addition, Gungnir has a pronounced anti-catabolic effect and can effectively protect your hard-earned, valuable muscles from any catabolic degradation, which is especially important during periods of starvation like during a strict low-calorie diet or a tough contest preparation.
Gungnir will do everything to keep you strong and healthy, so you will always be ready for brutal battles against seemingly overpowering enemies.
In keeping with the tradition of Nordic warriors, who - except of occasional bouts of Met after successful fights – lived a very healthy life, Gungnir is free from dubious and potentially harmful or unhealthy ingredients. It contains only pure and proven, natural glutamine. The effects and safety of glutamine have been proven beyond doubt by countless scientific studies.
Glutamine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in the human body and in virtually every source of protein. Glutamine accounts for 20% of the free amino acids in your body and more than 50% of the free amino acids in your muscles. This high concentration of this amino acid shows how important it is for countless processes in your body. These body functions include, among others, the function of your immune system, the function of the digestive tract and the protein metabolism of your muscles. And all these important processes would all come to a standstill without glutamine.
Although glutamine is a non-essential amino acid that your body can produce itself in certain amounts, there are often situations in which your bodies own glutamine production is insufficient to cover an increased glutamine requirement. Triggers for such a dramatically increased need for glutamine include physical and mental stress, diseases, strong physical exertions and intensive workouts. If no additional glutamine is supplied by food or in form of supplements such as Gungnir in such situations, it will come to the worst possible scenario for a fighter and strength athlete: your body will breaks down muscle tissue to get the contained glutamine or branched-chain amino acids (BCCAs) needed for a faster synthesis of the much needed, vital glutamine! In other words, too little glutamine can lead to losses of hard-earned muscle mass!<p< But don’t be afraid Nordic warrior; Gungnir can save you from the horrors of a catabolic muscle breakdown with the power of Odin!
We have already briefly mentioned some of the benefits that Gungnir has to offer. Now is the time to take a closer look at these benefits and to show you what practical implications these benefits can have for you as a fearless Wiking. And as there are still some people today who still like to claim that glutamine is useless, we have linked some studies to show the opposite.
A merciless fight - whether it takes place on the battlefield or in the gym - will leave you exhausted and weakened, with reduced resilience. A quick recovery can decide over success or failure of your efforts in the next battle of life and death or in the weight room. In both cases, you should leave nothing to chance and give your recovery a significant boost with Gungnir.
During hard and intense fights against cold steel in the gym the glutamine levels of your body can be reduced by up to 50%, and without a sufficient post-workout glutamine intake it can often take several hours for these levels to return to normal (8). As long as these levels are below normal, an exercise-induced catabolic environment in your body can not be converted into an anabolic, muscle-building environment.
And since your digestive tract and your immune system rely heavily on glutamine as an energy source, your body will sacrifice muscle protein to meet its glutamine requirement (9) – so say goodbye to your muscle mass and your fighting strength! But it does not have to come that far. An oral intake of glutamine can increase your plasma glutamine levels by 200% in no time (4) and give your body all the glutamine it desperately needs.
In addition, glutamine can accelerate your bodies glycogen resynthesis and replenish your glycogen stores that were depleted during exercise (4, 5), which is vital for recovery since you will not be fully functional until your muscle glycogen stores are fully filled - and your body will begin to build new muscle tissue only after the replenishment of your glycogen stores.
Bigger muscles usually not only mean more (combat) power, but also a more awe-inspiring appearance which will make it very clear to all of your opponents and competitors that it would be a very bad idea to mess with you.
Glutamine will stimulate your muscle protein synthesis and plays an important role in regulating your body-wide protein synthesis. Scientific studies have clearly shown that glutamine positively affects protein synthesis, nitrogen balance and muscle growth (7). In addition - similar to creatine - glutamine has a muscle cell volumizing effect, because it possesses the ability to pull water into your muscle cells, making them bigger and fuller (6). Apart from the fact that such an increase in muscle cell volume will make your muscles appear bigger, fuller and more awe-inspiring, an increased muscle cell volume also has direct anabolic muscle building effects, as it can increase your muscle protein synthesis rate.
To maximize these muscle cell volumizing effects with all their unique benefits, you can combine Gungnir with creatine, as these two active ingredients will act together synergistically and enhance each other's cell volumizing effects. Of course, you should also pay attention to maximum effect and purity when choosing your creatine product. And what would be better suited for this than Odin's Strength - the purest creatine product under the skies of the Northern gods, sent by Odin himself from Asgard.
Interesting for your muscle building aspirations may also be the fact that an isolated intake of just 2 grams of glutamine on an empty stomach can increase your natural growth hormone secretion by up to 400%. Human growth hormone is one of the most powerful anabolic hormones of your body and can both accelerate your muscle growth and promote your fat loss. These direct anabolic effects are further enhanced by the aforementioned accelerated recovery, which will allow you to exercise more often and harder for creating a stronger stimulus for building new muscle mass more often.
During times of hunger, it is the most important thing for Nordic warriors to maintain their fighting power despite all adversities - and this means losing as little muscle as possible. Although famines are no longer on the agenda in our latitudes, there are very similar scenarios from a purely physiological point of view like during a strict fat loss diet or an intensive contest preparation. And just as the Vikings had to maintain their fighting abilities to survive in combat, a competitive athlete has to maintain his muscle mass to defeat his opponents in competition. At this point Gungnir comes into play. Because glutamine has strong anti-catabolic effect and also helps to build new muscle mass, it can effectively prevent you from losing muscle mass, when you can not afford to lose even a single gram of muscle.
Diseases and epidemics were among the most insidious enemies with which Nordic warriors had to fight. These enemies could not be defeated with a sword or a battle ax and were the only enemy that could really harm a real Viking.
Even today, the toughest fighters and strength athletes, who can not be defeated by any human opponent, can be put out of action by a few microscopic viruses or bacteria. If you are sick, you can not fight or train, which can lead to bitter defeats and may cost you a lot of your hard-earned progresses.
Unfortunately, hard-working athletes are particularly vulnerable, as hard and intense workouts can have a negative impact on your immune system. Because of this your immune system will be significantly impaired during the first hours after your workout (10), increasing the risk of infectious diseases.
Fortunately, the pure glutamine contained in Gungnir can support and strengthen your immune system and protect you from illness-related compulsory breaks. Scientific research has shown that supplementing with glutamine after hard workouts can strengthen your immune system and significantly reduce the risk of infections (1,2) - and this effect is not restricted to athletes, which means that every health-conscious person can benefit from glutamine!
