What is Glutamine?
Glutamine is a highly essential amino acid in the blood and muscle cells and not only plays a key role in plenty of regular bodily functions such as immunity and insulin secretion but in particular assists in muscle protein synthesis. Glutamine plays a big role in this function because it actually supplies 35% of nitrogen which you need a positive balance (more input than output) of in order to reach an anabolic state. Why is this important? Well, maintaining a high nitrogen balance in the muscle prevents muscle breakdown, therefore retaining more muscle. This equates to a leaner you! A leaner you means you have less body fat, so, in essence, glutamine may help with the reduction of overall body fat.
Being an essential amino acid, the body is normally capable of manufacturing enough to meet its metabolic needs. But under certain conditions, additional glutamine may be required. For example, during intense exercise, glutamine levels deplete, meaning that more glutamine is required and even though it can be made by the body, the body cannot produce enough. It is necessary to be able to supplement the body’s demands of with glutamine and here’s where Growth Lab’s 100% Pure L-Glutamine comes in.
Growth Lab’s L-Glutamine plays key roles in not only supplementing protein metabolism, cell volumizing, and anti-catabolism but also in basic bodily functions to help you perform at your peak:
- Supplementing L-Glutamine increases your ability to secrete Human Growth Hormone which helps metabolize body fat and support new muscle growth.
- Glutamine’s anti-catabolism ability prevents the breakdown of your muscles. Supplementing this is especially useful for people ‘cutting down’; espcially for those shredding for that summer body!
- Your immune system and your small intestines also requires Glutamine because Glutamine levels deplete during workouts, Growth Lab’s L-Glutamine helps with the maintenance of good immune systems and intestinal health by supplementing this.
