The Only Chance For Salvation Is The New Style Of Glutamine
Long overdue is a conscientiously stylish soul capable of saving the bodybuilding community from atrophy, not only of muscle but of mind; a thoughtful entity capable of rescuing us from the numbingly homogenized sameness of the suburban supplement scenery. Betancourt Nutrition is quickly establishing itself as that company. Their team of nutritional architects continues to construct culturally re-charging supplement formulations that tastefully cater to the intelligently rebellious bodybuilding non-conformist.
Are you in or are you out?
When you're ready to leave the passive herd of civilization and experience new worlds, Betancourt Nutrition's CHEWIES Glutamine will be there for your muscles to meditate on, whether they're chasing reps at the gym, miles on the beach or yards on the field. We've broken out of the soulless, tasteless mold of glutamine capsules, pills and powders to give you the emotionally nourishing four-dimensional experience of chewing.
No matter where you are or what time it is, from the moment you bite into CHEWIES Glutamine, 4000 mg of "addictively-sweet", laboratory-certified Glutamine will begin to permeate and penetrate your body. Inevitably it arrives at the doorways of even the innermost muscle fibers where its full gamut of pro-protein, pro-glycogen, pro-hydration, pro-recovery, pro-immunity, pro-etc. properties can do their bodybuilding thing. Every time is different because as CHEWIES Glutamine shapes your body, your body shapes CHEWIES Glutamine.
Don't say you weren't warned. Betancourt Nutrition cannot be held responsible for any "addictions" arising from the routine use of CHEWIES Glutamine. Granted, "addicted" is a strong word. However, the fact of the matter is that Betancourt's food scientists are as obsessed with good taste as your heart is with pumping blood. They have styled their proprietary and entirely one-of-a-kind chewable flavor systems with such relentless devotion that elite athletes take poetic license in describing them as "addictively sweet". We're not prepared to argue with them.
- 4000 mg of lab-certified Glutamine per serving, equivalent to ~4 g of protein How long does it take for CHEWIES Glutamine to take action in your body? How long does it normally take you to put a piece of candy in your mouth?
- Zero sodium: promotes muscle hardening: Many bodybuilding supplements are high in sodium. Too much sodium can cause water to "leak" out of your muscle cells, making them shrink (atrophy) and promoting catabolism. This is precisely the opposite of building muscle. When the water leaves your muscle cells, moreover, it can accumulate in the inter-cellular space (i.e. the space in between cells). This can have the effect of making your muscles look "smooth" or "bloated". In other words, you lose muscle definition and hardness. CHEWIES Glutamine contains no sodium at all, so you don't have to worry about this kind of un-cool stuff happening.
- Supports muscle glycogen and protein synthesis and thermogenesis (fat-burning): Glutamine can be converted into glucose (blood sugar). This is known as gluconeogenesis. Think of gluconeogenesis like you would the engine of your car. Your car needs gas to run. What makes gluconeogenesis run? Fat. The energy provided by the burning of fat stimulates gluconeogenesis. Some of the energy is lost as heat. (No engine is perfect.) That's why we can say that CHEWIES Glutamine supports thermogenesis and fat-burning. As far as glycogen is concerned, in 1999 Bowtell et al. demonstrated that glutamine promoted muscle glycogen re-synthesis after exercise as powerfully as a glucose polymer solution. The effectiveness of glutamine in recovering muscle glycogen was also shown by van Hal et al. in 2000.
- Supports recovery and mass and strength gains: Why do you lift weights? To build muscle. How does your body build muscle? It has to synthesize more muscle protein. Since glutamine supports protein synthesis, CHEWIES Glutamine can be said to support gains in muscle mass and strength. Remember, too, that after your workout your muscles need to replenish their glycogen stores, which exercise reduces the levels of. As noted above, glutamine supports glycogen re-synthesis.
Our own lab. Our own formulas. Our own flavors
Betancourt Nutrition owns its manufacturing lab where expert food scientists develop proprietary flavor systems with the relentless devotion of makers of fine wines. Nothing replicates the addictively sweet taste of CHEWIES. CHEWIES taste so good elite athletes swear they're eating muscle-building candy. They stack them all day in an effort to push their muscles to outrageous levels of mass, shape, hardness, definition, strength and recuperative power.
Escape the Cultural Homogenization
Escape the cultural homogenization and social regimentation. Amidst the numbing sameness of the suburban scenery, Betancourt Nutrition is quickly differentiating itself as the source of nutritional formulations that are as culturally re-charging and stylishly non-conformist as they are backed by real-world gym credibility ("gym cred"). Betancourt Nutrition was founded by Jorge Betancourt, a husband, father and former NPC bodybuilding champion with over 20 years of experience and a reputation for credibility.
