Schwartz Labs L-Glutamine PowderGlutamine
is the most abundant amino acid in your body. It is highly concentrated in the skeletal muscles and it plays an important role in protein metabolism, your body’s ability to use protein. Since protein
is the building block for muscles, you need adequate amounts of glutamine in order to increase your muscle mass and to protect your muscles from catabolism (muscle breakdown).Glutamine benefits:
How will Glutamine benefit me?
- Improve your bodys ability to use protein
- Support muscle development (anabolism)
- Decrease muscle breakdown (catabolism)
- Decrease recovery time needed after a workout
- Increase muscle cell hydration for fuller, firmer, more defined muscles
- Enhances immune system
- Support a healthy digestive system
If you are training hard, and are interested in gaining strength, stamina, and size, then Glutamine is for you. Since Glutamine plays such a major role in muscle recovery and muscle growth, it is very important to make it readily available to the body and muscles.
To better understand the bodies need for Glutamine, it is important to remember how the body builds muscle. Our bodies do not build muscle during our workouts, in fact, they begin to breakdown protein (catabolism) during exercise or any stress to the body. The more intense the workout, the more Glutamine and other amino acids are pulled from the muscles. Now, if we supplement with Glutamine
, we “replenish” what was lost, and our body is more efficient at recovery and growth. In addition, when Glutamine is in ample supply for muscle needs, other body systems (immune) can perform their necessary functions with no problems or deficiencies.Nutrition Facts:
