What is Best Glutamine?
BPI Sports Best Glutamine provides essential amino acid for intense training. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (a building block for proteins) in the body, and one of the best supplements for promoting recovery and lean muscle building. Strenuous exercise can lower glutamine levels causing stress to the body and immune system, but with proper glutamine supplementation you can help your body recover and rebuild faster. Best Glutamine is designed to prevent protein catabolism (the breakdown of muscle proteins) and support your efforts to train harder and longer. Best Glutamine combines 6 advanced forms of glutamine and is designed to promote a rapid rise in cellular glutamine levels and glutamine stores in muscle. Best Glutamine comes in delicious flavors to support recovery and promote lean muscle.
What Can Best Glutamine Do For You?
- Support protein synthesis.
- Promote post workout recovery.
- Maintain intestinal health and immune response.
6 Advanced Forms of Glutamine:
This most studied form of glutamine has been shown to be effective and to be safe in doses up to 40 grams per day.
Alpha-ketoglutarate, the carbon skeleton of glutamate and glutamine, is an intermediate compound in the Krebs cycle. AKG spares endogenous glutamine and increases glutamine synthesis and availability. Attaching AKG to glutamine is a more effective way of delivering AKG.
Glutamic acid is one nature's most abundant amino acids and is the primary amino acid taken up into muscle, during rest and exercise. Supplementation with glutamic acid has shown positive effects on exercise performance.
A modified amino acid through acetylation of an amine group, this form of glutamine appears to offer a more stable source for supplementation.
Glutamine (as Oligopeptide-Enzymatic Technology)
This form bonds glutamine to other amino acids to form a peptide linked chain (Oligopeptide). The Oligopeptide form may act as a better transport vehicle to allow more efficient metabolization, help increase bio-availability, onset time, and generally improve the efficacy of glutamine.
Is a dipeptide of glutamine and alanine. This form of glutamine is stable to both heat and acids, and is highly water soluble, thus increasing absorption. Studies show this form of glutamine has the potential to improve exercise performance.
