L Glutamine

 

Glutamine Boosts Growth Hormone: Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. It plays a crucial role in cell volumizing and has powerful anabolic and anti-catabolic effects, promoting protein synthesis while inhibiting protein breakdown. Loading with glutamine may even increase the secretion of growth hormone. Studies show that supplementing with as little as two grams of free-form L-glutamine may boost your growth hormone levels by as much as 400%.

Glutamine Reduces Muscle Deterioration: Glutamine is high in demand throughout the body and is used in the gut and immune system extensively to maintain optimal performance. Studies show that training over an extended period of time, rapidly depletes both muscle and blood glutamine levels. What's worse, during periods of stress, glutamine is further depleted, and if not reversed, glutamine is pulled directly from the muscle. For strength athletes and bodybuilders, glutamine is extremely important. When supplemented, it may help body builders reduce the amount of muscle deterioration that occurs because other tissues that need glutamine will not rob the glutamine stored in the muscle cells
