DIMINISH MUSCLE CATABOLISM
Glutamine also helps to diminish catabolism caused by an increase in the stress hormone cortisol, which is elevated during exercise. A recent study conducted on the effects of glutamine on the muscle found that it actually blocks the action of cortisol's interference with muscle protein synthesis and repair. This study shows that glutamine can provide an anti-catabolic effect. It can minimize the amount of muscle breakdown and can be particularly helpful when consumed after working out, when catabolism is at its peak.
INCREASES PROTEIN SYTHESIS AND NITROGEN RETENTION.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue and has recently been shown by research to increase the number of HSPs (Heat Shock Proteins). Aside from its well-known ability to help exercise recovery and boost immune function, Glutamine helps to create new muscle tissue by increasing HSPs. It has also been shown to speed post-workout recovery by increasing the absorption of key electrolytes.
THE ALLMAX DIFFERENCE
Manufactured with the purest raw ingredients at a Pharmaceutical Grade Manufacturing facility. ALLMAX Nutrition Japanese Micronized Glutamine provides recovery after training and enhances the immune system, which can be compromised during intense exercise. ALLMAX uses a proprietary hyper-particulation process called GLUTASURE™ technology to minimize the particle size of the glutamine, creating a clean, white and extremely fine powder. This increases Glutamine suspension time in liquid and speeds absorption into the bloodstream. ALLMAX uses only the purest raw ingredients and is not heated or chemically treated.
Available in 100 gram, 400 gram and 1000 gram sizes.
