||Glutamine is one of
the most versatile of all amino acids, and among the top aminos used by
Among its many functions, glutamine
detoxifies ammonia, regulates protein synthesis and protein degradation,
functions as a nitrogen precursor and transfer, promotes cellular hydration,
stimulates growth hormone production, maintains acid balance, boosts the
immune system, is an energy precursor and increases glycogen production
in the liver. In short, glutamine is both anabolic and anti-catabolic.
Glutamine accounts for about 60% of the body’s total intramuscular free
amino-acid pool and 20% of the total circulating amino acids. Unlike almost
all other aminos, glutamine contains two nitrogen atoms. Because of this
additional nitrogen atom, glutamine is called a nitrogen “shuttle.” Glutamine
transports nitrogen where the body needs it most. Glutamine is available
in both powder and capsule forms.
What's more, glutamine works in the
gut helping to increase the absorption of other nutrients, such as creatine,
making them work even better.

Whey Protein, Glutamine, Creatine
|Creatine, Whey Protein, and Glutamine
are fundamental workout supplements. These are a must have for any
serious athlete. Creatine can significantly increase lean muscle mass.
It is also responsible for improving performance in high-intensity exercise,
increasing energy levels, and speeding up recovery rates. Creatine's ability
to enhance energy reserves in muscles comes from its muscle protein synthesizing
action, while minimizing protein breakdown. This occurs because creatine
has the awesome effect of super-hydrating muscle cells with water. It
enhances muscles' growth too-making muscle fibers bigger and stronger.
Whey protein (the highest quality
and best form of protein) is incredible stuff. It provides the body
with the necessary building blocks to produce amino acids that are used
for building muscle tissue. Whey protein also plays a role as an antioxidant
and an immune system builder. Most importantly, consistent whey protein
intake coupled with exercise will result in consistent muscle building.
L-glutamine plays a very important
role in protein metabolism, and it appears to be a very important nutrient
for the serious athlete. 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.
Glutamine supplementation can minimize the breakdown of muscle tissue and
improve protein metabolism. These three supplements work synergistically
giving your body everything needed to maximize your gains. Coupled with
your workout these essential supplements allow you to workout longer, with
more intensity, more frequently. While everyone else is sitting around
complaining about being too tired or too sore you’ll be breezing through
another training session getting faster, stronger, and better than you
