Twinlab - Glutamine Fuel Powder - 4 oz.

Glutamine Fuel Powder contains the amino acid L-Glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in skeletal muscle.

Twinlab Glutamin Product Highlights:

  • 4500 mg of Pure L-Glutamine, the Most Abundant Free Amino Acid in Skeletal Muscle
  • L-Glutamine is Essential for Serious Athletes
  • Produces an Anti-Catabolic (muscle sparing) Effect
  • Helps Increase Growth Hormone Release and Helps Enhance Muscle Metabolism

 



Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (protein building block) in the body and is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. Glutamine is converted to glucose when more glucose is required by the body as an energy source. It serves as a source of fuel for cells lining the intestines. Without it, these cells waste away. It is also used by white blood cells and is important for immune function.
Where is it found?

Glutamine is found in many foods high in protein, such as fish, meat, beans, and dairy products.

Why do athletes use it?

Some athletes say that glutamine helps boost the immune system.


What do the advocates say?
Glutamine is the most utilized amino acid in the body. Based on its biochemistry, glutamine is a good supplement for athletes. Glutamine is best taken consistently, on a daily basis, rather than just before or after a hard workout, to build up tissue levels.

Although glutamine is inexpensive and non-toxic, realize that you run the risk of upsetting the balance of the

How much is usually taken by athletes?
The amino acid glutamine appears to play a role in several aspects of human physiology that might benefit athletes, including their muscle function and immune system. Intense exercise lowers blood levels of glutamine, which can remain persistently low with overtraining. Glutamine supplementation raises levels of growth hormone at an intake of 2 grams per day, an effect of interest to some athletes because of the role of growth hormone in stimulating muscle growth, and glutamine, given intravenously, was found to be more effective than other amino acids at helping replenish muscle glycogen after exercise. However, glutamine supplementation (30 mg per 2.2 pounds body weight) has not improved performance of short-term, high-intensity exercise such as weightlifting or sprint cycling by trained athletes,and no studies on endurance performance or muscle growth have been conducted. Although the effects of glutamine supplementation on immune function after exercise have been inconsistent, double-blind trials giving athletes glutamine (5 grams after intense, prolonged exercise, then again two hours later) reported 81% having no subsequent infection compared with 49% in the placebo group.
