GL3-750 by AST Sports Science
As more and more scientific studies are completed, the more glutamine's role in muscle growth is suggested. Glutamine is usually taken in powder form mixed into water or added to a protein shake or flavored drink. However, you don't always have time to mix a drink. Even if it takes you just 5 minutes, when you are busy and on the go those 5 minutes may be impossible to spare. And with the studies suggesting glutamine's positive impact on elevating growth hormone, you want to be able to take it with no fuss - easy and convenient. New GL3 Micronized Glutamine Capsules gives you the multifunctional, muscle-building power of pure glutamine in and ultra-convenient capsule form. One thing I've learned from over 20 years of weight training and researching and developing cutting edge sports nutrition supplements is that there is a balance between convenience and effectiveness. This new micronized glutamine capsule strikes the perfect balance. It gives you the simple convenience of a take anywhere- anytime capsule while maintaining all the potent muscle-building effects that micronized glutamine delivers. There is no compromise.
Did you know that glutamine is solely responsible for over 35% of the nitrogen that enters the muscle? Glutamine provides a critical link in muscle metabolism not shared by any other single amino acid, and GL3 makes utilizing glutamine a realistic and effective endeavor. GL3 is pure, micronized L-Glutamine in an odorless and tasteless powder. Glutamine is the most abundant single amino acid in the blood and in the intracellular free amino acid pool (most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue). It comprises 61% of the amino acid pool in skeletal muscle. Glutamine's unique structure, containing two nitrogen side chains, consists of 19% nitrogen - making it the primary transporter of nitrogen into the muscle cell. In fact, glutamine alone is responsible for 35% of the nitrogen that gets into the muscle cell. Glutamine literally drives muscle building nitrogen into the muscle cell where it is synthesized for growth.
Glutamine concentrations fall markedly after training and remain low until complete recovery. What this means is, the very rigors of weight training "leak" nitrogen carrying glutamine from muscle tissue. This fall in glutamine is catabolic to muscle tissue - "The Training Paradox". Supplementing with glutamine spares free glutamine in muscle tissue, counteracts the fall in muscle protein synthesis, and improves nitrogen balance. Glutamine overcomes "The Training Paradox."* You train with weights to build muscle. The more intensely you train, and the heavier the overload you subject your muscles to, the greater the growth response will be. Glutamine is a key factor in muscle growth, and controlling the "skeletal muscle/whole body glutamine gradient" is critical in maintaining and building muscle tissue.* The higher the muscle glutamine levels you can maintain, the less chance you have of falling into catabolism and the faster muscle will grow. But now there is more...
It regulates the metabolic processes (including protein synthesis) in almost all tissues throughout the human lifespan. Growth hormone provokes the uptake of glucose and amino acids, activation of muscle protein synthesis, suppression of muscle protein catabolism, and the utilization of body fat for energy.
