Helps Repair and Recovery from Intense Training
Helps Protect Muscle from BreakdownIt plays a role in the metabolism of protein while strengthening the immune system and supporting recovery. This important amino acid can help with the removal of lactic acid and prevent DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). ALLMAX Glutamine uses Glutamine crystals made from a natural fermentation process. This state-of-the-art process creates a unique, purified and isolated Glutamine ideal for supplementation. It is the most abundant amino acid found in muscle tissue.
DIMINISH MUSCLE CATABOLISM
Glutamine also helps to diminish catabolism caused by an increase in the stress hormone cortisol, which is elevated during exercise. A recent study conducted on the effects of glutamine on the muscle found that it actually blocks the action of cortisol?s interference with muscle protein synthesis and repair. This study shows that glutamine can provide an anti-catabolic effect. It can minimize the amount of muscle breakdown and can be particularly helpful when consumed after working out, when catabolism is at its peak.
INCREASES Protein Sythesis and Nitrogen Retention.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue and has recently been shown by research to increase the number of HSPs (Heat Shock Proteins). Aside from its well-known ability to help exercise recovery and boost immune function, it also helps to create new muscle tissue by increasing HSPs. It has also been shown to speed post-workout recovery by increasing the absorption of key electrolytes.
A Pharmaceutical Grade Manufacturing facility is used to manufacture Glutamine Micronized. An extremely fine, white, clean powder is created through the minimization of glutamine particle size with GLUTASURE technology. There is not chemical or heat treatment used in the production. Glutamine supplementation allows the body to maintain size of skeletal muscles while stored amino acid is optimized.
The amino acid glutamine makes up approximately 30% of plasma’s amino acids making it the body’s most abundant amino acid. Glutamine Micronized prevents the bloodstream’s decline of concentrated glutamine after intense exercise, allowing it to remain in muscle cells. The prevention of depletion prevents the weakening of the human immune system.
The body produces glutamine naturally making it an essential amino acid. The body releases glutamine during times of trauma or stress requiring it to be replenished. Beans, fish, poultry and dairy products all contain the supplement naturally. Adipose tissue and skeletal muscle produce the majority of Glutamine. The brain, liver and lungs synthesize glutamine. Hair follicles, immune system, small intestines and the gastrointestinal tract use the amino acid for fuel.
Training can create stress for the body making the supplementation of glutamine beneficial to maintain an anabolism state. This can avoid the suppression of the immune system associate with the loss of glutamine during training. Catabolism is at its peak after a workout as a result of the levels of the cortisol stress hormone increasing, and glutamine supplementation minimizes the breakdown of muscles. The interference of protein synthesis and repair of muscles by cortisol is blocked by glutamine.
