    What is Glutamine and what does it do?

    L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid that is naturally produced in our bodies and helps prevent loss of muscle tissue during rigorous training due to its anti-catabolic properties. It is also recognized for its possible benefits in stimulating the release of growth hormone by the pituitary gland.

    By itself, Glutamine is a good product. When taken in addition to a product like Muscle Attack or Three-Atine (our creatine tablets), the results are synergistic.

    Definitely a MUST for athletes, competitive lifters or those simply trying to take their fitness to the next level. If you are a casual weight lifter, we recommend checking out our Whey Better protein with HICA instead.

    "Muscle fuel" is what Glutamine is commonly referred to as. During high intensity exercises, your body is depleted of Glutamine. In some cases, it can take several days to level out. This is a common reason why a lot of people seem to "lose muscle"

    Other successful uses for Glutamine are for those who may be recovering from an injury/surgery OR supporting the muscle mass of athletes who may be on calorie-deficient nutrition plans.

     

    How exactly does Glutamine work?

    L-Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid that is naturally produced in our bodies and helps prevent loss of muscle tissue during rigorous training due to its anti-catabolic properties. It is also recognized for its possible benefits in stimulating the release of growth hormone by the pituitary gland.

    Glutamine helps you reach your goals by decreasing your recovery period, allowing you to train better and your muscles to grow. Glutamine also helps prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue, such as in periods of a caloric deficit.

    While glutamine is not 100% necessary unless your body is under stress, trauma, muscle dystrophy, and illness, which decrease levels of glutamine in the body by 50%, it must be supplemented since it is essential for the body (the body natural produces glutamine – it’s 60% of the skeletal muscle amino acid pool).

    Since training puts your body under physical stress, glutamine is necessary and helps with recovery. Since glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid our bodies can produce it on its own, but when the body is put under stress the immune system is needed so it should be taken on intense/strenuous training days to normalize growth hormone, increase glucose uptake, hydrate muscles, and to reduce acid build up from exercise.

    Glutamine works in the same for both women and men. The effects of Glutamine will depend on the intensity of your training and nutrition, but should feel the effects on recovery levels within a few days, and muscle growth could be a few weeks.

     

    Can I get Glutamine from proper diet/nutrition?

    Supplementation is definitely a MUST for athletes, competitive lifters or those simply trying to take their fitness to the next level. If you are a casual weight lifter, we recommend checking out our Whey Better protein with HICA instead.

    Other successful uses for Glutamine are for those who may be recovering from an injury/surgery OR supporting the muscle mass of athletes who may be on calorie-deficient nutrition plans.

    Glutamine can be found in an overall health diet, consuming red meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, eggs, cabbage, nuts, beans and legumes, beets, carrots, kale, celery, spinach, fermented foods, etc.

    In order to get the recommended amount of glutamine per day naturally from food (for athletes on intense training programs), one would have to consume multiple servings of the above foods.

    As an estimate, you would likely need to spend around $100-200/week to get enough from food, depending on things like age, height, weight, gender, and activity level, etc.

    Of course, these foods provide other nutrients, and you will likely eat some of these foods anyway, as you have to eat. However, many people choose to supplement so that they know they are consistently getting in enough glutamine to maximize recovery and training.

    Since alcohol hinders exercise recovery, a high intake may just nix out the positive effects of glutamine.

     

    Is Glutamine safe to take?

    Glutamine supplements have been on the market for decades, and many years of research on Glutamine has studied glutamine as it relates to topics such as: cardiovascular health, absorption levels, inflammation, immunology, exercise, skeletal muscle, and intestinal health.

    Our supplement has 2x more glutamine per serving than other major brands, meaning you get more bang for your buck. Some companies even claim to have a higher dose than what you actually are getting in your supplement, which means you would be wasting your money.

    Many companies also produce their products in China. Our glutamine supplements are guaranteed to have 5000mg per serving, and are produced in the US.

    Glutamine is safe to take for most people. No studies have proven otherwise but there may be some risks if you suffer from diabetes, MSG intolerances, epilepsy, or bipolar disorder. It is always a good idea to speak with your healthcare provider before starting any supplement regime.

     

    What is the recommended dosage for Glutamine?

    Consuming 3g-30g/day (3,000mg-30,000mg) is recommended but dosages can vary per person based on goals, weight, etc. Dosage above 30g/day is the tolerable upper limit and what you don’t want to go over.

    You do not need to cycle glutamine, so you can take it every day to support your needs. It can be taken on an empty stomach, but it’s important to consume lots of water while taking glutamine. The best time of the day to take glutamine is around your workouts and before bed for recovery.

    Glutamine may not be safe to consume while pregnant or breastfeeding, so speak to your doctor to check if it is okay for you to supplement.

    1. Great Immune System Compound

      5 / 5 stars
      Reviewed by on 21st Jan 2018

      Glutamine is a very good immune system compound, and cells will use glutamine as the preferred fuel source rather than blood glucose. Because of this you might notice increased endurance if taken a few hours before working out. Although glutamine is commonly thought of as a muscle builder, it is primarily only effective in the repair of physical trauma (burns, cuts, or in various states where muscle waste might occur). In healthy weightlifters you're not going to notice more gains because of Glutamine, but the increased energy output will make it easier to train just a bit harder than you might usually! For that reason alone it's worth what you're paying for. If you're already supplementing with whey or casein, this supplement might be all you need to push your training energy a little higher.

    2. must have for anybody in the gym

      5 / 5 stars
      Reviewed by on 3rd Oct 2017

      I have a work schedule that forces me to not be able to go to the gym for 2 months at a time so I have to "start over"every few months.

      First workouts as we know are always brutal so this glutamine by far has been incredibly helpful in eliminating the soreness.

    5. great product for next level up

    6. Good PCT substitute

      5 / 5 stars
      Reviewed by on 6th Apr 2017

      I don't really take PCTs, but I tried taking Glutamine during my off-cycle month and my muscle mass actually grew significantly during the off month.

      Had no idea what glutamine did until now.
