 Dymatize's Glutamine

Description

Dymatize's Glutamine features 100% pure pharmaceutical grade glutamine, micronized for maximum absorption. L-glutamine is a nonessential amino acid that may become conditionally essential if demand for it exceeds the body's ability to produce it. Certain conditions such as a vegan/vegetarian diet, prolonged exercise, or physical stress (such as infection, burns and injury) can deplete glutamine levels, making adequate dietary intake or supplementation necessary.

Glutamine helps the immune system function optimally, enhances protein synthesis in body tissues and promotes muscle growth. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. They are essential to the human body and needed to build the proteins used in the growth, repair, and maintenance of muscle. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in muscle. Over 60% of amino acids in muscle consist of glutamine. Supplementation with glutamine can help promote muscle energy, repair and recovery.

Studies suggest that following competition and intense exercise activity, glutamine levels may be reduced by as much as 50% in muscles. Glutamine supplementation can help athletes prevent muscle tissue breakdown (catabolic) and promote muscle building (anabolic). One study showed a 400% increase in growth-hormone levels when 2 grams of glutamine was supplemented.

Maintaining an impressive release of anabolic growth hormone throughout the day is critical to making gains in size and strength to the bodybuilder of today. Drug using bodybuilders make an easy time of maintaining higher levels simply by injecting their butts very other day and taking the easy way out, however if you're a naturally aspiring bodybuilder looking to be as big as the drug heads while remaining drug free at the same time, must look for better ways to increase their GH potential. Glutamine has been proven in countless documented situations to cause a dramatic spike in GH by up to 375% after just a 2 gram dose! I take Dymatize's micronized Glutamine to spike my GH levels in the morning, before and after every workout, as well as after every meal. Keeping my GH high and circulating constitutes a constant release of natural GH giving me bigger gains the natural way!
