Balance 100% Pure Glutamine is a Pharmaceutical Grade source of the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue. Glutamine is vital for the prevention of muscle catabolism (breakdown) and is an important source of nitrogen in the body to help maintain muscle mass.

100% Pure Glutamine is ideal for strength athletes, bodybuilders and individuals who need additional glutamine for intense training or exercise.

This product contains only Pharmaceutical Grade Glutamine and has been extensively tested and packed under the strictest Quality Control procedures.

The Benefits of Glutamine:

 
  • Ideal for reducing muscle dehydration and muscle catabolism
  • Preserves muscle glutamine levels to aid recovery
  • Supports new muscle growth
 
The Science:

Glutamine is considered a conditionally essential amino acid, meaning that even though the body can synthesise it from other sources, there are times when it becomes essential and must be obtained in the diet. Injury and illness are two such occasions. But intense exercise too can deplete Glutamine levels. The body’s need for Glutamine increases beyond the normal 3.5-7g derived from the diet, during periods of physical or emotional stress.
 
All cells in the body utilise Glutamine, although some cells depend on it more than others. Glutamine is utilised as a source of energy and for nucleotide synthesis by all rapidly dividing cells, including those that line the intestines and some immune cells (thymocytes, lymphocytes and macrophages). In the absence of sufficient Glutamine, the intestines atrophy and the immune function is impaired. Needed for energy production and DNA and RNA synthesis Glutamine serves both as a nitrogen and carbon donor and is thus an important muscle-building amino acid; helping to replenish muscle glycogen after exercise. 

Glutamine also has significant role in protecting both the body and in particular the brain from ammonia toxicity through the synthesis of glutamine from glutamate. Ammonia produces Nitrogen-based free radicals and reduces ATP production through its interference with the oxidative metabolism of neurons. Glutamine users often report more energy, less fatigue and better mood and part of this relates to its role in maintaining proper blood glucose levels and pH.

Glutamine is also significant in maintaining a healthy gut, and improves the absorption of other nutrients. It is a very important nutrient for intestinal health. When extra energy is required, Glutamine together with the amino acids Alanine, Glycine, Serine and Threonine is readily catabolised in the liver to glucose.
