L-Glutamine for a Healthy Body!
Glutamine is ideal for individuals desiring to stay healthy, all types of athletes, anyone engaged in strenuous exercise and those concerned about aging.
More Growth Hormone. Perhaps the most exciting news for bodybuilders and those fighting the aging process is glutamine's effect on growth hormone. Growth hormone is one of the body's most anabolic (muscle building) hormones. A study of 9 healthy athletes reported on in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed a 430% increase in growth hormone within 90 minutes of taking a 2 gram oral dose of L-glutamine consumed after a light breakfast.
Endurance Athletes. Athletes engaged in endurance-type sports such as long distance running, biking and triathalons should use approximately 5 grams of glutamine right after exercise.
Overall Health. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is critical for many body functions. It regulates cellular metabolism and acid-base balance. Glutamine serves as fuel for cells of the intestine and immune system. It's a precursor for glutathione (a powerful antioxidant) and GABA (an important neurotransmitter). It also regulates cell volume and is a key building block of protein and muscle. When you take glutamine, you provide your body with one of the most important fuels it needs to stay healthy.
