By now, almost everyone knows that amino acids act as the "building blocks" that make up protein.
THE MOST ABUNDANT AMINO ACID...Not as many are likely aware that it is Glutamine that makes up more than 60% of all protein in skeletal muscle. As one of the twenty ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS, Glutamine is considered important for the maintenance and promotion of cell function and essential to many of the body's other functions such as protein synthesis, immunity and intestinal health.
A FOUNDATIONAL CHOICE...At 3D Labs Nutrition, we feel strongly that Glutamine is second, only to Creatine (CreaMode) in importance for those who train hard. During intense training sessions, as well as, highly stressed or even sick times, the body's Glutamine levels are lowered.
COMBATS THE EFFECTS OF STRESS...As a fuel source studies have shown, DURING STRESS, the body’s requirements for Glutamine may exceed the amounts the body can produce itself. This alone is all the more reason, those who exercise (stress) should supplement with Glutamine. Additionally, when Glutamine levels get too low catabolism can set in as well, wasting muscle tissue and increasing your recovery time.
SUPPLEMENTATION WORKS...Supplementing with Glutamine will ensure your levels of this amino acid are optimized to help you recover faster and boost your immune system. When you couple this with the anti-catabolic effect Glutamine is also known to have, it should be easy to understand why we feel so strongly about adding this to your pre-workout, intra-workout, or post-workout drink of choice.
A CONVENIENT SOLUTION...For those who train especially hard, we highly recommend a serving both before and after training. You will want to give your body every possible means of preventing muscle breakdown and aiding in recovery.
