Glutamine in theory is a fantastic supplement.
It is involved in your cardiovascular,
digestive, immune, sexual, musculoskeletal,
nervous, and respiratory systems. It is even
involved in the formation of our skin and
wound healing. The problem is, it is one of the
first amino acids along with alanine that get
converted into glycogen and used for energy
during intense or long exercise. Glutamine
accounts for approximately 20% of the body's
total circulating amino acids and it concentrates
in muscle where 60% of the amino acid content
is made up of glutamine.
It has been scientifically proven that exercise
causes depletion of the body's Glutamine
reserves. A single bout of non-intensive
exercise can cause a 45% reduction in plasma
Glutamine compared to pre-exercise plasma
Glutamine levels.(1,2) Glutamine reserves are
important for stimulating the synthesis of
endogenous proteins within muscle, therefore
facilitating muscle repair and growth and also
preventing catabolism, the breakdown of
proteins within the muscle. To recover properly
after exercise we must restore glutamine
reserves within our muscles as fast as we can.
The faster we can restore the levels within our
muscles, the faster we will recover and the
better results we will achieve.
The NANO Glutamine
This is where the advantage of using 'NANO
Technology' comes into play. The enhanced
absorption properties of NANO Glutamine speeds
up the uptake of the Glutamine directly into your
body, enabling restoration of Glutamine reserves
at the fastest possible rate. Normal Glutamine and
even Micronized Glutamine cannot compete
because their particle sizes are still too big for
direct absorption. Therefore, they’re absorbed
through normal digestive processes and the
digestive system also uses glutamine as a fuel.
A lot of the Micronized Glutamine won't reach
your bloodstream to help restore your glutamine
reserves within your muscles and therefore you
won't recover at the same rate. The only way you
would be able to recover at the same rate as the
NANO Glutamine, is to take massive doses of the
Micronized glutamine to flood your digestive
system, so enough would pass through to help
restore your glutamine reserves within your
muscles. This is not only impractical but it would
also be damn expensive! NANO Glutamine is by
far, the most efficient and cost effective way to
restore glutamine levels within muscle cells
directly after training, enabling you to make a
full recovery. That's Guaranteed!
