Glutamine from The Protein Works is selectively sourced to ensure only the finest quality Glutamine is used in The Protein Works products. Glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid found in the muscles of the body. Considered to be a ‘must have’ supplement for those involved in intense training and exercise, it is key in promoting muscle development and improving post workout recovery. What are The Benefits of L Glutamine? Glutamine is an amino acid that’s traditionally used by strength athletes wanting to increase muscle mass because of the role it plays in cell volumisation and in the creation of a positive environment in the body to build quality muscle mass. It has also, following impressive studies, been advocated by experts for use by athletes during periods of intense training because of its ability to support the immune system, prevent over training and enhance recovery. Can L Glutamine Help My Recovery? Firstly, to appreciate Glutamine’s immune boosting properties you must first understand what happens to the body during periods of intense training. Whilst at rest your immune system functions efficiently, however research shows that when you train at an intensity higher than 85 percent of your maximum heart rate (near exhaustion), your oxygen usage vastly increases. This causes lactic acid to accumulate in the muscles, which in turn alters your PH and causes your body to pull alkaline reserves from bones and other mineral dense sources. Furthermore, muscle tissue is torn and muscle energy stores are depleted.
- Glutamine performs a number of roles including the support of muscle growth and fulling the cells of the immune and digestive system. Without it, muscle wouldn’t regrow, our health would deteriorate and our digestive system would not be able to absorb the food we eat. Now you understand why it’s the most abundant amino acid!
- When we exercise we place a significant amount of strain on the mentioned processes. Depleting our limited stores of glutamine increases our risk of under recovery. Poor recovery increases our risk of infection, meaning less training and a longer time to achieve our goal.
