|Helps reduce muscle breakdown.|
|May speed up recovery.|
|Increases muscle stamina & strength.|
L-Glutamine is an amino acid. During intense training, the L-Glutamine levels in your muscles drop sharply. This, in turn, decreases strength, stamina and recovery.
Research demonstrates that following a rigorous workout, it may take up to six days for L-Glutamine levels to return to normal without supplementation. Without adequate levels of L-Glutamine, it is impossible for protein synthesis to occur.
L-Glutamine also increases cell volumisation immediately. Volumised muscle cells appear larger, get a better pump and assist in protein synthesis. In fact, L-Glutamine helps muscle cells to utilise both protein and carbohydrates. L-Glutamine acts as a powerful ammonia scavenger. Ammonia is a highly toxic substance to muscle cells. Research demonstrates that the muscles can benefit from 2 to 5 additional grams of L-Glutamine daily.
