Machine Supplements Glutamine is pure, pharmaceutical grade and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body making it essential for athletes looking to recover from extensive physical exercise. Glutamine also helps to boost the immune system and supports gut health.
Muscular recovery and development between workouts is essential for optimal performance. L-glutamine is a primary building block of muscle and helps to regulate cell growth and function. L-glutamine helps an athlete's body recover from the intense workouts and supports new muscle growth. Other muscle recovery benefits include boosting growth hormone levels and enhancing glycogen storage for extra energy.
Glycogen is the form your body uses to store glucose. It is stored in the liver and in muscle. Glycogen is used as a fuel for muscles (particularly during heavy lifting) and is usually replenished with glucose in the form of carbohydrates such as Dextrose or Maltodextrin.
Glutamine supplementation can be used to restore muscle glycogen levels. This can be very useful to athletes during a cutting phase who wish to minimise carbohydrate consumption.
Immune System Booster
L-glutamine helps provide energy to the cells in the immune system. As a result, taking an L-glutamine supplement after intense workouts or cardio can help boost the immune system. A stronger immune system reduces the risk of overtraining, injuries and sickness which can interfere with even the strongest athlete's goals.
Athletes often experience temporarily-reduced immunity, resulting in colds or infections. This may be related to depleted levels of glutamine. In a double-blind placebo-controlled study by "The European Journal of Applied Physiology and Occupational Physiology," a group of endurance athletes were given 5g of glutamine. Only 19% of athletes who supplemented with glutamine became ill after an endurance event compared with 51% of athletes who were given a placebo.
Promotes a Healthy Digestive Tract
Glutamine aids in digestion and helps to maintain healthy intestines. It has been recognized as the second most important fuel for the cells lining your digestive tract and helps to clear out waste through the kidneys and liver. Glutamine can also help alleviates gastrointestinal tract disorders by strengthening the self-cleansing capacity of the gut barrier.
Mix 5-10g (scoop included) with 100ml liquid of choice until dissolved. May be consumed up to 1-3 times per day as required.
For Glycogen Replenishment
53% of oral glutamine is absorbed by the digestive system. To replenish glycogen stores we recommend adding 10-30 grams to your post-workout shake.
