MICRONISED L-GLUTMAINE is a vital AMINO ACID that is required by every muscle in the body, and is one of the most important building blocks in forming the proteins that maintain cellular health and tissue repair. Glutamine is found in varying amounts in most meat and fish as well as, to a small extent, in vegetables. Anyone involved in high intensity training programS designed for hypertrophy, may find Glutamine a beneficial supplement.
Glutamine is also considered useful to anyone undergoing training for endurance sports such as long distance running or cycling, and can help to reduce the incidence of cramps caused through repetitive strain. Because Glutamine can help in this regard, it is also recommended for elderly people who suffer from cramps and regular muscle pain as a natural alternative to chemical pain killers.
Many athletes take L-Glutamine powder as a supplement since it provides many athletic related benefits. Release rates of the natural L-glutamine from our bodies is so high that even with resting muscles, our body’s storage would be used up within 7 hours. During exercise, release rates of l-glutamine dramatically increase, often leaving our bodies depleted for hours or days, depending on the intensity and duration of the workout. Depleted levels in the human body decreases strength, stamina, recovery, and immune system function. Athletes often have very low levels of natural l-glutamine in their systems, making it important to consume extra as a supplement.
