Glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body. It is called a conditionally essential amino acid, meaning that the body is able to manufacture it on its own. But during times of extreme stress (such as following an intense workout), the body is not able to produce enough and may benefit from supplemental Glutamine. It 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).
Glutamine is a precursor of Glutathione, an amino acid, which is naturally found in the body. It can be found naturally in beans, meats, fish, poultry and dairy products. ALLMAX Glutamine comes from a vegetable source.
Glutamine is a natural supplement and can be used by anyone who may benefit from it. It is ideal for athletes and those who perform intense workouts, as it can help to speed up recovery and maintain muscle mass. However, it is also used in the hospital in extreme cases such as burn patients and those suffering from cancer to boost their immune system.
Glutamine is an anti-catabolic agent, meaning that when taken after a workout it can help to repair muscle damage and promotes new muscle tissue growth. It has also shown a positive effect on the immune system. When you’re training intensely, your immune system may be weakened due to the stress on your muscles. It can help to boost your immune system and prevent you from getting sick, allowing you to continue training at your peak. Additionally, if you’re a competitor and dieting, it can provide a boost to your immune system during times of caloric restriction. It can also help to reduce stress during that time.
Glutamine is a natural supplement which can be found in the body. The only side effect reported for those who have tried it has been a stomachache, but this was when someone took an excessive amount. You should always read the label before starting any new supplement and never take more than the recommended amount.
It’s best to take Glutamine immediately following a workout. This will help to speed up the recovery process. You can also take a serving right before going to bed.
No, you don’t need to cycle Glutamine.
Take 1 rounded teaspoon or scoop (5 g) in water or juice once daily. For training sessions and athletic events, take approximately 30 minutes prior to training and immediately after training to help prevent muscle tissue breakdown and aid muscle recovery.
Absolutely! We actually suggest that you combine Glutamine with protein powder. We’ve found that it works very well with ISOFLEX protein powder. Taking this after your workouts will really help to increase muscle recovery and maintain your lean muscle mass.
