AST GL3 L-Glutamine Product Information
AST GL3, 2-Aminoglutaramic Acid, is pure L-Glutamine in crystalline powder form. Glutamine has become more prominent as new studies reveal its unique contribution to protein synthesis (muscle growth), anti-proteolytic (prevents muscle tissue breakdown) functions and growth hormone elevating effects.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue. Glutamine is the primary transporter of muscle-building nitrogen into the muscle cell where it is synthesised for growth.
Glutamine concentrations fall after training and remain low until complete recovery. This fall in glutamine is catabolic to muscle tissue requiring glutamine supplementation to spare the free glutamine in muscle tissue, counteract the fall in muscle protein synthesis and improve nitrogen balance.
Growth hormone - the most important anabolic hormone, provokes several anabolic actions on skeletal muscle: the uptake of glucose and amino acids, activation of muscle protein synthesis, suppression of muscle protein catabolism, and the utilisation of body fat for energy.
In a recent release of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the results of a study on glutamine revealed that a single 2 gram oral serve of glutamine elevated circulating growth hormone levels by over 430%.
Supplementing with AST GL3 L-Glutamine may be the most effective way of assisting new muscle growth!
