Higher Power’s Micronized Glutamine 1000

Description

Higher Power’s Micronized Glutamine 1000 delivers 4500 mg of pure glutamine per serving. L-glutamine is a nonessential amino acid that may become conditionally essential if demand for it exceeds the body’s ability to produce it. This can happen during periods of stress, such as intense workouts. Micronized Glutamine 1000 is specially formulated for athletes and body builders to promote optimal performance and prevent catabolism (muscle breakdown).


L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in skeletal muscle. Over 60% of amino acids in muscle consist of glutamine. It is also used extensively in the gut and immune system. Glutamine helps the immune system function optimally, enhances protein metabolism, promotes muscle growth and supports muscle repair and recovery.


Research suggests that glutamine levels may be reduced by as much as 50% in muscles following competition and intense training. This can cause muscle breakdown (catabolism). Athletes and bodybuilders can benefit from glutamine supplementation to help prevent muscle deterioration and promote muscle building. One study found a 400% increase in growth-hormone levels when participants were administered 2 grams of glutamine.
