-Micronized for Rapid Digestion
-Most Abundant Amino Acid in Muscle Tissue
Glutamine and Caloric Deficit:
Its importance to the body as an amino acid is unquestionable and nearly unmatched by any other single amino acid. The instances in which glutamine supplementation is most effective is based on research to support its important during times on caloric deficit or stress. During these time periods, supplementing with glutamine will aid in the maintenance of muscle mass.
Glutamine for building muscle:
You will still find this amino acid in almost every recovery supplement because of its proven anti-catabolic effects which are important in conjunction with high intensity exercise. Even though it is not an anabolic amino acid, it will still provide support in building muscle and increasing strength. This is a result of glutamineís ability to support progress by preventing muscle breakdown and promoting recovery from your workouts.
Glutamine and Muscle Glycogen:
For any athlete looking to optimize his/her training, supplementing with glutamine will ensure you get the most out of your glycogen stores while optimizing performance and recovery. It works especially well for athletes who are dieting for a competition (and anyone who needs to meet a weight class in individual sports) and are limited in caloric intake. If you take a look even further into glutamines benefits to dieters, its ability to form glucose as shown in studies proves it can actually curb dietersí cravings for carbohydrates.
Glutamine is the most abundant single amino acid in the human body. It makes up over 60% of the free form amino acids in muscle and 20% of the total circulating amino acids. It is also an amino acid that is heavily depleted following intense exercise. Glutamine Micronized is a rapid digesting, premium grade glutamine powder that delivers because of its high levels of absorption.
The Fallacies of Glutamine Supplementation:
Glutamine has played a major role in sports nutrition for more than a decade. With its long history in supplementation it also brings many misunderstandings in terms of its effectiveness and proper use (similar to the fallacies associated with creatine). For those that discredit glutamine supplementation because it is a non-essential amino acid, they need only look at research that points to glutamine being depleted from high intensity exercise and its need to be replenished to maximized muscle glycogen. Over training is the result of repeating high intensity workouts without allowing your body enough time to recovery. This can results in a decrease in exercise performance and progress towards your training goals. A large percentage of weightlifters suffer from over training and donít even know it. The reality is you can only grow when you recovery, and increasing the use of an amino acids responsible from improving recovery time will maximize your progress towards your goals.
