Basic Functions: Muscle Growth, Recovery, Immune Function, Anti-Catabolic, Brain Fuel. Gen-Tec Nutrition source and blend the highest quality pharmaceutical grade L-Glutamine. We are privy to possibly the world's finest (up to 320 mesh size) free form powdered L-Glutamine. We can also boast the lowest impurity content of our naturally derived L-Glutamine product. In fact our "Pharmaceutical" manufacturer use an '18 stage' natural fermentation and filtration process. These two factors contribute to bio-availability and absorption (not solubility in water). L-Glutamine requires no carriers to enter the bloodstream or muscle cells. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue comprising about 60% of the free amino acids in the blood and muscles. It is also very abundant in the immune system. L-Glutamine stores are depleted during any form of high intensity training (ie weight training, cycling, running etc) through the “glucose alanine cycle”. This can cause catabolism; muscle breakdown. Supplementation of L-Glutamine helps restore levels in muscle providing an anabolic environment, muscle growth. It will also restore health and integrity of the immune system preventing overtraining syndrome. L-Glutamine combines very well with micronised creatine to aid recovery and increase lean muscle mass. For improved concentration, L-Glutamine crosses the blood/brain barrier to increase vigilance for sports or study. For best results Upon rising: 5g 20 mins before training: 5g During training 5g Immediately after training: 5-10g (added to your post-training shake) Before bed: 5g
