Sports Nutrition Europe’s 100% L-Glutamine delivers a critical link in muscle metabolism not shared by any other single amino acid, and makes using glutamine a realistic and effective process. SNE Glutamine is a pure L-Glutamine an odourless and tasteless powder. Glutamine is extremely in demand throughout the human body. It’s used in the stomach and immune system extensively to stabilize optimal performance. L-glutamine plays an important role in protein metabolism, and it seems to be a very important nutrient for bodybuilders and athletes. When supplemented, it may help limit the amount of muscle deterioration that occurs as other tissues that need glutamine will not rob the glutamine stored in the muscle cells.
- Muscle recovery
- Nitrogen transport
- Fast absorption
- May increase Muscle hardness
- Increase muscle cell hydration
- May increase protein synthesis
- May increase muscle strength
L-Glutamine concentrations decline after training and strenuous exercise and continue to be low until total recovery. What this means is, the demands of strenuous exercise i.e. weight training “leak” nitrogen carrying glutamine from muscle tissue. This decline in glutamine is catabolic to muscle tissue. Supplementing your diet with glutamine spares free glutamine in muscle tissue, offsets the fall in muscle protein synthesis, and improves nitrogen balance.
L-Glutamine, the free form amino acid, is the single most largest amino acid present in skeletal muscle. L-Glutamine may reinforce muscle tissue by restricting the degradation of protein through nitrogen retention, glycogen synthesis, and protein synthesis. L-Glutamine may also help in giving energy and the removal of environmental toxins. Thus, L-Glutamine has been labelled “the thinker´s amino”. L-Glutamine´s muscle supporting qualities have made L-Glutamine an priceless addition to an athlete´s regimen.
Because L-Glutamine is non-toxic, you can safely use it all year-round without needing to cycle it.
