- Stimulates protein synthesis
- Increases growth hormone secretion
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. It belongs to the non-essential amino acids and the body can only produce it, but it is necessary to know that after physical stress and activity, the body needs up to seven days to compensate for the lost glutamine and bring it to normal levels. Glutamine makes up about 20% of nitrogen, making it its primary carrier in muscle cells. Glutamine has an anti-catabolic and volumizing effect on muscle fibers, as well as a strong stimulating effect on the immune system.
Glutamine creates other chemical effects such as other amino acids and glucose and helps eliminate excessive ammonia production in the body. Glutamine also plays a key role in protein metabolism and increases the body's ability to produce growth hormone (metabolizes fat, promotes growth and is very useful for recovery after intense training).
Studies have shown that with age, the body produces less and less glutamine, thus depriving muscles and the whole body of a very important nutrient. In addition, glutamine can be beneficial for hair, skin, anxiety, tension and sleep disorders.
Usage: Mix one scoop (3g) with 150ml of water or a favorite drink and consume immediately after training and at bedtime.
