Supercharge Your Protein With Glutamine


Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and supplementation has been found to minimize muscle tissue breakdown, reduce soreness and increase protein metabolism!

Generally most people have heard about Glutamine before but exactly what it is, the benefits and why you would take it are not so commonly understood. Glutamine is an amino acid which is derived from protein. But specifically what protein is Glutamine derived from…?

Low quality Glutamine supplements have been known to derive their Glutamine from duck feathers and horse hair! While that is a great statement for shock value it should be clarified that these days you’ll much more likely find that your Glutamine is from rice, wheat or some other vegetable. The key thing to look for here is that your Glutamine supplement is naturally fermented, that will ensure it is vegetable derived.

What are the Main Benefits?
  • Reduce muscle tissue catabolisation and breakdown
  • Improve protein synthesis
  • Helps maintain cell volume and cell hydration
Secondary Benefits?
  • Increases natural growth hormone levels
  • Improve immune function
  • Improve digestion

As you can figure from reading the main benefits you will notice that Glutamine is a supplement all about your recovery! Glutamine will reduce the feelings of weariness and fatigue that set in after an intensive gym session or even multiple days of intensive gym sessions in a row.

So Who Should Take It?
  • Anyone training to reduce body fat but keep lean muscle
  • Anyone wanting to improve muscle recovery time

You will most explicitly benefit from Glutamine supplementation while trying to reduce body fat. The risk of reducing body fat is that you will also burn your muscle mass.  Glutamine is a great anti-catabolic that’s stops muscle tissue breakdown and therefore assists you in reaching a goal of a lean defined physique.

Ever find it harder to get in the gym towards the end of the week? It might not just simply be laziness as you had assumed. Accumulated muscle fatigue from training sessions during the week can really put a dampener on your motivation levels. Adding a scoop of Glutamine into your shake during or post workout is a great way to ensure your body recovers optimally to allow you to continue to function at full speed for your training program.
