Platinum 100% Glutamine supplies 5g of glutamine per serving, which works to rapidly replenish the glutamine used during training. Glutamine is the most abundant non-essential free amino acid in your body – more than 20% of the total circulating amino acids in your body are glutamine. Your muscles are especially high in glutamine, making it extremely important for muscle metabolism. When you’re training hard, your muscles can lose up to 50% of their glutamine stores, so you need to replace them – fast! Glutamine helps your body control catabolism by acting as a free nitrogen donor to help your muscles build the other amino acids they need to recover quickly. Glutamine also helps support increased cell volume, glycogen replenishment, and protein synthesis.*
REPLENISH PLASMA GLUTAMINE
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in your muscles. Following heavy or prolonged exercise, it protects muscle tissue and helps support muscle growth.* It’s involved in many metabolic processes and is the principal carrier of nitrogen in the body – transporting nitrogen from organ to organ, which directly influences the balance of protein synthesis and protein degradation.* This role as a free nitrogen donor helps your muscles build the other amino acids they need to recover quickly.*
SUPPORTS INCREASED CELL VOLUME, PROTEIN SYNTHESIS AND GLYCOGEN REPLENISHMENT*
A volumized muscle is an anabolic muscle! Glutamine helps support increased cell volume and is necessary for leucine uptake, both of which are needed to turn on protein synthesis!* Protein synthesis is the key to building muscle and recovering quickly after training (Fumarola C, La MS, Guidotti GG, 2005. Amino acid signaling through the mammalian target of rapamycin [mTOR] pathway: Role of glutamine and of cell shrinkage. J Cell Physiol. 204:155-65.) Glutamine also helps support increased glycogen replenishment – another key component to improving recovery an increasing training frequency for more muscle and strength gains!*
Directions For Platinum 100% Glutamine: Mix 1 serving (1 scoop) with 8 oz. of water or your favorite sports beverage and consume 1 to 2 times daily. For optimal results, take 2 servings (2 scoops) per day. On workout days, take 1 serving 45 to 60 minutes before your workout and 1 serving 15 to 30 minutes after your workout.
