ATP Science L-Glutamine
What is L-Glutamine?
Our Glutamine is NOT made from genetically modified corn and is also naturally fermented. So our glutamine isn't a Franken-food! So if you like it "Au Naturel" you will like ATP Science's L-Glutamine.
What does L-Glutamine do?
Glutamine plays a key role in protein synthesis. With any type of training of physical stress, Glutamine in the body is easily exhausted as your body starts to break down amino acids in your muscle tissue by a process called catabolism. Supplementation with L-Glutamine helps to combat these negative effects, instead helping you to minimise muscle breakdown, improve protein metabolism, increase strength, increase stamina and improve recovery. L-Glutamine can also assist in preventing muscle wastage as when needed it can be broken down by the liver to produce glucose. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in your muscles - in fact approx. 61% of skeletal muscle is Glutamine.
L-Glutamine is best used before or directly after training. A dose of 5g is standard. For maximum benefits, expert nutritionists recommend consuming 5 grams, 1 to 3 times daily; once in the morning, pre and post workout and before bed. L-Glutamine is easily mixed with water, juice and other supplements.
