When it comes to recovery, you probably think about your post-workout shake before anything else. From there, you’re most likely thinking about getting adequate rest and sleep. Equally important is making sure you’re eating plenty of quality high-protein meals. Many bodybuilders might also include Glutamine in their recovery program. This includes adding it to your post-workout shake, and it includes mixing it in every time you enjoy your favorite version of All Day You May. In this article, we’ll discover What You Should Know About Glutamine, and we’ll take a look at 5% Nutrition Core L-Glutamine 5000, easily the best “Core” Glutamine on the market.
What Is Glutamine?
Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid. That means the body makes it, but it’s depleted under certain conditions and must be replenished by diet and supplements. It makes up 61% of skeletal muscle tissue which makes it the most dominant amino acid in your muscles.
Also, Glutamine is 19% nitrogen, which means it’s the main transporter of nitrogen to your muscle cells. Nitrogen is an important component of protein and is used as a measurement of total body protein. No doubt you’ve heard the term "positive nitrogen balance". It means the body is in a state of positive protein balance or an anabolic state. (1, 2)
The Benefits Of Glutamine
Your body’s demand for Glutamine increases dramatically during intense exercise and other times of stress. This includes injury and illness, and even pre-contest dieting. Plus, Glutamine is involved in protein synthesis and helps prevent muscle protein breakdown. Research also suggests that Glutamine promotes post-workout recovery. In addition, it supports BCAA metabolism, glucose formation, and neurotransmission. Finally, it supports immune system health. One reason is that lymphocytes and macrophages cells use glutamine as a primary fuel source. That means the demand for Glutamine increases when the immune system is stressed. (3,4,5, 6)
Core L-Glutamine 5000
Now that we know what Glutamine is and what it does, it’s time to look at our innovative 5% Nutrition Core L-Glutamine 5000. First, there are 5 grams of L-Glutamine per serving. The primary thing that sets Core L-Glutamine 5000 apart from the competition is the addition of 2 supporting ingredients. Most "core" type products are single-ingredient formulas. Not ours! It’s no surprise that 5% goes beyond what everybody else does. The 2 extra ingredients are L-Alanine and N-Acetyl-L-Glutamine.
L-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid, meaning it's made by the body. Alaine is mainly synthesized by the muscle cells from lactic acid. Combined with Glutamine, it is important for amino acid metabolism. Once synthesized, the liver converts Alanine into pyruvate, which is critical for glucose production and blood sugar management. By supporting blood sugar levels, Alanine helps prevent fatigue. (6)
N-Acetyl-L-Glutamine is a form of Glutamine with an acetyl group attached. This dramatically enhances absorption. The addition of these 2 compounds creates a superior L-Glutamine formula.
