The Fallacies of Glutamine Supplementation
Glutamine has played a major role in sports nutrition for more than a decade. With its long history in supplementation it also brings many misunderstandings in terms of its effectiveness and proper use (similar to the fallacies associated with creatine). For those that discredit glutamine supplementation because it is a non-essential amino acid, they need only look at the research that points to glutamine being depleted from high intensity exercise and its need to be replenished to maximize muscle glycogen.
Over training is the result of repeating high intensity workouts without allowing your body enough time to recover. This can result in a decrease in exercise performance and progress towards your training goals. A large percentage of weightlifters suffer from over training and don't even know it. The reality is you can only grow when you recover, and increasing the use of an amino acid responsible for improving recovery time, will maximize your progress towards your goals.
Glutamine Micronized is manufactured in an NSF certified cGMP facility in Miami, Florida. This ensures that our facilities comply with all Food and Drug Administration regulations and requirements for the manufacturing of nutritional supplements. Every single raw material used in our products is identity tested before production at a minimum and all finished products are submitted to rigorous quality control and assurance processes and procedures prior to being released to inventory. Guaranteeing the quality and safety of every bottle of Betancourt Nutrition product continues to be at the core of our business and our vision.
Glutamine: The latest info on Glutamine
Glutamine and Caloric Deficit:
Its importance to the body as an amino acid is unquestionable and nearly unmatched by any other single amino acid. The instances in which glutamine supplementation is most effective is based on research to support its importance during times of caloric deficit or stress. During these time periods, supplementing with glutamine will aid in the maintenance of muscle mass.
Glutamine for Building Muscle:
You will still find this amino acid in almost every recovery supplement because of its proven anti-catabolic effects which are important in conjunction with high intensity exercise. Even though it is not an anabolic amino acid, it will still provide support in building muscle and increasing strength. This is a result of glutamine's ability to support progress by preventing muscle breakdown and promoting recovery from your workouts.
Glutamine and Muscle Glycogen:
For any athlete looking to optimize his/her training, supplementing with glutamine will ensure you get the most out of your glycogen stores while optimizing performance and recovery. It works especially well for athletes who are dieting for a competition (and anyone who needs to meet a weight class in individual sports) and are limited in caloric intake. If you take a look even further into glutamines benefits to dieters, its ability to form glucose as shown in studies proves it can actually curb dieters' cravings for carbohydrates.
Glutamine is the most abundant single amino acid in the human body. It makes up over 60% of the free form amino acids in muscle and 20% of the total circulating amino acids. It is also an amino acid that is heavily depleted following intense exercise. Glutamine Micronized is a rapid digesting, premium grade glutamine powder that delivers because of its high levels of absorption.
Glutamine is a flavorless powder that is consumed in 5 gram servings. As needed, mix 5 grams of Glutamine with water, milk, or juice. You can supplement with Glutamine on non-training days as well to take advantage of its insulin regulating and muscle preserving effects.
