While L-Glutamine is an effective supplement powder, it is quickly broken down in your gut meaning not all of the amino acid you consume is used effectively. MAX’S Glutamine+ combines fast acting free form L-Glutamine with stabilised N-Acetyl L-Glutamine for a fast and sustained release. N-Acetyl L-Glutamine is an acetylated analog of L-Glutamine which is more stable and slower to break down than free form L-Glutamine.
MAX’S Glutamine+ can be taken before workouts to provide that extra source of energy to push beyond your normal limits, and after workouts to inhibit muscle catabolism and stimulate faster recovery for maximum anabolic growth.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in human skeletal muscle and is one of the most important amino acids for hard trainers. When you work out hard, your circulating Glutamine levels drop as your muscles and organs take up Glutamine for fuel and protection against stress. Your body responds by starting to catabolise or break down the muscle tissue you are training to restore system Glutamine levels. This breakdown can last for many hours, delaying recovery and inhibiting muscle re-building, which is the exact opposite of what you want.
You can stop this catabolic breakdown in its tracks by taking a quality Glutamine supplement. MAX'S Glutamine+ restores your body's Glutamine balance to inhibit muscle catabolism and provide the right anabolic signals to promote muscle tissue repair and synthesis.
MAX'S Glutamine+ is a must for any serious trainer who trains hard and needs to optimise their recovery time between workouts. In summary:
Glutamine prevents your muscle from being catabolized (broken down) in order to provide Glutamine for other cells in your body
Along with other amino acids, Glutamine stimulates protein synthesis.
Glutamine helps maintain cell volume and hydration, which helps optimise tissue healing and recovery.
Glutamine supplementation prevents declining Glutamine levels during intense workouts to stimulate faster recovery and protein synthesis.
Glutamine can help stimulate growth hormone levels. A study has shown as little as 2 grams of orally administered L-Glutamine increased growth hormones by over 400%.
Glutamine supports optimal immune function. For bodybuilders, this is important since heavy workouts tend to greatly deplete Glutamine levels. (Glutamine is a primary energy source for your immune system.)
- Glutamine is one of the most important nutrients for your intestines. It has the ability to 'repair a leaky gut' by maintaining the structural integrity of the intestines.
How To Take Glutamine+
Take 1 Serving Post Workout.
Take 5 grams (1 scoop) about one hour before training to increase energy. Take 5 grams immediately after training to stop muscle breakdown and stimulate recovery. Take 5gm before bed to aid muscle recovery and growth while you sleep. Can be taken straight or mixed with a sports drink, juice or added to your protein shakes.
Who Should Take Glutamine+
MAX'S Glutamine+ is suitable for intermediate and advanced level trainers who want to maximise workout intensity and recovery after hard gym sessions or exercise bouts. For best results combine with MAX’S BCAA 10:1:1.
