Bulk Powders™ 100% L-Glutamine is only sourced from the world's finest manufacturer in Japan and is considered the best Glutamine available today. Glutamine is a semi-essential amino acid, meaning that whilst the body can produce its own glutamine this is not enough to fulfil the bodies needs and therefore a dietary source is required. Glutamine is naturally found in foods such as meat and fish, and can be found in particularly high levels in whey and casein protein. Glutamine stores can become particularly depleted in anyone undertaking intense exercise and therefore supplementation is recommended.
Glutamine has been traditionally used by strength athletes and bodybuilders due to its ability to increase protein synthesis and reduce recovery times. It has been shown prevent muscle breakdown (catabolism) and positively affect the action of leucine, a vital branched chain amino acid (BCAA).
More recently glutamine has been shown to enhance immune function as well as improve muscle glycogen replenishment, post exercise. This has seen an increase in the use of glutamine as a dietary supplement, and in particular amongst the endurance community. Immune function can drop as a result of intense or prolonged exercise and glutamine is a great way to boost recovery and increase energy stores.
