Battery Nutrition Glutamine
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. It’s fuel for the brain and the immune system.
L-glutamine plays a key role in protein metabolism, and when supplemented can help speed up recovery times and reduce muscle breakdown (catabolism).
Working out can deplete glutamine levels in the body, and glutamine supplements help restore these levels for optimum performance.
- Spare Muscle Glutamine Stores and Reduce Muscle Protein Catabolism
- Stimulate Glucose Synthesis to Promote Recovery from Exercise
- Promote Enhanced Recovery from Training
- Support Arginine and Nitric Oxide (NO) Levels
- May Improve the H+ (Acid) – and Ammonia-Buffering Capacity of the Body
- May Improve Thermogenesis and Metabolic Rate
- Support Blood Glucose and Energy Levels
L-Glutamine is a huge favourite within the world of athletics, body building, strength training and any high-intensity activity. Body builders have traditionally used L-Glutamine when preparing for a competition and embarking on a restricted-calorie diet. Athletes and strength trainers similarly have used L-Glutamine in an attempt compliment a healthy diet. L-Glutamine is an amino acid found in proteins of all life forms. It is classified as a semi-essential or conditionally essential amino acid. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, and plasma glutamine levels are the highest of any amino acid. L-glutamine is predominantly synthesized and stored in skeletal muscle. The amino acid L-glutamate is metabolized to L-glutamine in a reaction catalyzed by the enzyme glutamine synthase, a reaction which, in addition to L-glutamate, requires ammonia, ATP and magnesium.
L-Glutamine is ideal for:
- Any athlete taking part in a physically demanding activity
- High energy sports participants looking to supplement a high protein diet aimed at building lean muscle
- Body builders and athletes on a low calorie nutritional plan
- All athletes seeking maximum physical performance
