 EAS’ L-Glutamine

Description

EAS' L-Glutamine is a potent anabolic (muscle building) and anti-catabolic (prevents muscle breakdown) amino acid. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (protein building block) in the body. Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid under normal conditions. However, glutamine 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.

Glutamine helps the immune system function optimally, enhances protein synthesis in body tissues, promotes muscle growth and helps the body to effectively recuperate from the physical stress of exercise. Studies suggest that following competition and intense exercise activity, glutamine levels may be reduced by as much as 50% in muscles. This can cause catabolism or muscle breakdown. Athletes and bodybuilders can benefit from glutamine supplementation to prevent muscle tissue breakdown and promote muscle building.

Independent studies suggest that glutamine can help increase muscle cell volume to stimulate protein synthesis in the cell. In one study, researchers found that after participants were administered 2 grams of glutamine, growth hormone levels increased 400 percent. Human growth hormone (HGH) is known for its powerful muscle building (anabolic) and fat preventing (lipotropic) effects.


Pros

EAS' L-Glutamine optimizes muscle glutamine stores to support muscle recuperation and growth after intense workouts.

L-Glutamine has the following benefits:

  • Promotes muscle repair and recovery
  • Cell volumizing
  • Prevents muscle breakdown
  • Supports immunity

Cons

Few side effects are associated with glutamine supplementation. However, mega-dosing with glutamine over an extended period of time may result in potential side effects such as diarrhea, weakness and nausea.

Pregnant or lactating women or people with pre-existing medical conditions or taking medication should not supplement with L-Glutamine without consulting a physician.

Be aware that some drugs may interact with Glutamine including:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Cisplatin
  • Cyclophosphamide
  • Docetaxel
  • Fluorouracil
  • Methotrexate
  • Paclitaxel

Is it for you?

If you're looking for a potent anabolic/anti-catabolic amino acid to promote muscle growth, repair and recovery, L-Glutamine may be for you.

However, pregnant or lactating women or people with pre-existing medical conditions or taking medication should not supplement with L-Glutamine without consulting a physician.


Dosage and Directions

Mix 1.5 teaspoons into water or juice 1 to 3 times daily.

For best results, consume immediately following workouts and/or before bedtime. Athletes who participate in intense, regular workouts should consume at least 120 oz of water daily. Drink an additional 16 oz of water for every pound lost during exercise.
