GLUTAMINE SUMMARY:

MusclePharm glutamine is a unique blend of three types of glutamine: L-glutamine, glutamine peptides, and alanyl L-glutamine.  These help you rehydrate, rebuild and recover faster and more efficiently from even the toughest of workouts.

GLUTAMINE BENEFITS:
  • Improved recovery
  • Aids in muscle growth
  • Minimizes muscle breakdown
  • Rapidly digested and absorbed
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING GLUTAMINE:

Those who are glutamine deficient (vegetarians), people who participate in prolonged endurance events, and individuals who are looking to recover faster from intense training sessions.

KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN GLUTAMINE:

L-Glutamine:

L-Glutamine may help reduce muscle breakdown (catabolism) and help support a muscle building environment (anabolic).[1,2]

Alanyl-L-Glutamine:

This form of glutamine may support intestinal health and boost the immune system.[3]

Glutamine peptides:

Glutamine peptides may help improve glutamine availability and absorption.

PRODUCT USAGE:

Consume one serving one to three times daily. For optimal use, take between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, and/or immediately after workouts.
