Glutamine helps you build muscles. Glutamine provides security by strengthening your immune system, keeping your muscles hydrated and by helping to transport waste products like ammonia out of the body. If you need to up your performance, L-Glutamine is an important team player for the muscle building functions in the body.
Glutamine is a pure form L-Glutamine supplement of free amino acid which is ingested to increase the circulating levels of glutamine in the body. The stomach and intestines are large consumers of glutamine. Glutamine is defined as a semi-essential amino acid, this means that it can be produced by the body by using components from other essential amino acids. The net effect being that more of the essential amino acids in the body then can be used to build muscles. This is a relatively unknown effect, but it gives the body a significant potential for using glutamine towards building muscles and improving the immune system. The requirements of glutamine are directly linked to activity levels – the more you do, the more you need.
Our demand of quality is your security:
Glutamine is the free amino acid that is found in the largest quantities in the body. This is solid evidence that glutamine is an efficient transporter of nitrogen and a central actor in the protein metabolism.
Glutamine, alongside other alpha amino acids, is involved in regulating protein synthesis and -turnover. In addition, L-Glutamine has a large effect on the BCAA metabolism, maintenance of the bowels, normal immune functions, glucose production and transport of fluids to the musculature.
Mix 5 g Glutamine in your beverage of choice once daily
Recommended daily dosage: 5 g
The kidneys are the prime consumers of glutamine. It is there that ammonia is split from glutamine in order to maintain the body’s acidic balance. Where you find ammonia, you will find glutamine. When your metabolic acidity increases as a result of intense workouts, or a high-protein diet, the uptake of glutamine is negatively affected. A study showed that only 4 days on a high-protein, high-fat diet was enough to cause a 25% decrease of the glutamine levels in the plasma and muscle tissue.
When these competing consumers of glutamine in the body require more than the body can produce, the results may be signs of deficiency, muscular atrophy, depleted energy and increased risk of infections as well as a lower rate of muscular rehydration. A rehydrated muscle gives more pump and a fuller look.
L-Glutamine can have positive effects on restitution and the important rebuilding of tissue after heavy strain. L-Glutamine can also provide considerable aid to the intestines’ functional integrity and act as an energy source for the active cells in the bowels. The conclusion being that L-Glutamine from Nortech Nutrition can be an efficient supplement for all who want to perform better.
