Balance 100% Pure L-Glutamine, 500g







Balance 100% Pure L-Glutamine is ideal for bodybuilders and strength athletes and individuals who need additional Glutamine for intense training or exercise.







Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue and contributes up to 80% of the free nitrogen found in the body.







The most exciting news for bodybuilders and strength athletes is Glutamine? effect on Growth Hormone (GH). GH is one of the body? anabolic (muscle building) hormones. Glutamine also plays a vital role in regulating the body? acid-base balance by reducing lactic acid build-up that results from the burning of glycogen for energy. Therefore Glutamine speeds recovery and increases endurance.











Special benefits







Balance 100% Pure L-Glutamine contains only pharmaceutical grade L-Glutamine and has been extensively tested and packed under the strictest Quality Control procedures to provide the purest L-Glutamine available.







QUALITY SEAL is your guarantee of quality supplements. This quality seal means the products produced comply with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) guidelines in a GMP licensed manufacturing facility.

Mode of action







Although Glutamine is classified as a ?on-essential amino acid, this simply means that the body is able to synthesise this compound.



However, all cells in the body utilise Glutamine, although some cells depend on it more than others. Glutamine is utilised as a source of energy and for nucleotide synthesis by all rapidly dividing cells, including those that line the intestines and some immune cells (thymocytes, lymphocytes and macrophages).



In the absence of sufficient Glutamine, the intestines atrophy and the immune function is impaired.



Needed for energy production and DNA and RNA synthesis Glutamine serves both as a nitrogen and carbon donor and is thus an important muscle-building amino acid; helping to replenish muscle glycogen after exercise.



Glutamine also has significant role in protecting both the body and in particular the brain from ammonia toxicity through the synthesis of glutamine from glutamate. Ammonia produces Nitrogen-based free radicals and reduces ATP production through its interference with the oxidative metabolism of neurons.



Glutamine users often report more energy, less fatigue and better mood and part of this relates to its role in maintaining proper blood glucose levels and pH.



The body? need for Glutamine increases beyond the normal 3.5 to 7g derived from the diet, during periods of physical or emotional stress.



Glutamine is also significant in maintaining a healthy gut, and improves the absorption of other nutrients. It is a very important nutrient for intestinal health.



When extra energy is required, Glutamine together with the amino acids Alanine, Glycine, Serine and Threonine is readily catabolised in the liver to glucose.











Indications











Ideal for reducing muscle dehydration and muscle catabolism.







Preserves muscle glutamine levels to aid recovery.







Supports new muscle growth.







Adverse effects







Well-tolerated, even in high doses.



However, diabetics, who have abnormal Glutamine metabolism should avoid Glutamine supplementation, since higher than usual levels of this amino acid may result in increased availability of blood glucose.



Glutamine supplementation should not be administered to cancer patients without medical advice.











Form







Powder.







Dosage







5g (1 metric teaspoon).



May be added to carbohydrate foods or non-acid fruit juice or other cold beverage. Stir and serve.
