Power Glutamine by Champion Nutrition
Champion Nutrition Power Glutamine (454 g)
Champion Nutrition Power Glutamine helps your body's recover mechanism. Research confirms what many in sports nutrition have believed for so long: L-glutamine is essential for protein synthesis, immune function, gastrointestinal health and recovery. Multiple scientific studies suggests that by taking supplemental L-glutamine, you can help your body prevent muscle protein loss due to intense stress or exercise.
Additionally, studies have found that consuming supplemental L-glutamine stimulates the release of growth hormone, volumizes your muscle cells and helps control toxic ammonia. What's more, L-glutamine works in the gut helping to increase the absorption of other nutrients, such as creatine, potentially making them more effective. Champion Nutrition Power Glutamine contains only HPLC-grade 100% pure L-glutamine—the type used in clinical studies. It is virtually tasteless and mixes quickly and easily into protein drinks or other beverages.
What is L-glutamine and what does it do?
L-glutamine is an amino acid. For years L-glutamine was not thought to be as important an amino acid as the nine essential amino acids are. This belief was mainly due to the fact that L-glutamine can normally be made in the body. For this reason, it is considered a "non-essential amino acid" and grouped together with the likes of other non-essentials such as L-alanine, glycine and L-tyrosine. But recent data has shown L-glutamine to be so crucial to the body's well-being that it is now being touted as the essential "non-essential" amino acid, classifying it, unofficially, as a "conditionally essential amino acid" similar to L-histidine. The reason for this is that L-glutamine is involved in processes like: acid-base balance, preserving branched-chain amino acids in skeletal muscle, sparing glycogen stores, improved gut maintenance, muscle anabolism, enhanced immune response, improved recovery and faster wound healing.
All of these processes require L-glutamine's involvement, yet L-glutamine stores can be compromised by up to 50% if the body undergoes some form of stress. This makes it harder for the body to recover quickly from the stressor, which in turn makes it harder to build new muscle tissue.
What is the best way to take my Power Glutamine?
The most effective way to consume Power Glutamine is to take it straight-up followed by a glass of water, although some prefer to combine it with their protein supplement shakes.
Take 1 scoop mixed with 8 oz (1 cup or 240 ml) of water. Use 3 times per day.
