ATP Science L-Glutamine
- Naturally fermented, Non GMO
- Boost Peak Torque
- Reduce Muscle Soreness
- Recover faster
ATP Science L-Glutamine is a pure, non GMO and naturally fermented product and suitable for vegans. Few sports supplements have stood the test of time quite like L-Glutamine. This conditionally essential amino acid can be synthesized from glutamic acid in the body adequate amounts under "normal" physiological conditions. However, when the body is under stress—such as rigorous exercise—we may not be able to synthesize enough to maintain optimal levels and health.
Research is indicating that L-Glutamine supplementation, such as ATP Science L-Glutamine, enhances glycogen accumulation after exercise, which is the muscle storage form of sugar1. Glycogen stores are depleted during exercise—more so during long distance aerobic training—and need to be replenished as soon as possble once the exercise is completed. This is due to the fact that glycogen synthase activity is greatest immediately following exercise, and reduces in time. L-Glutamine should further enhance the effectiveness of this important enzyme.
L-Glutamine has also been demonstrated to reduce muscle soreness after exercise, such as the DOMS that so many experience, particularly when exercising at high intensity, or when beginning a new program. Additionally, L-Glutamine may also boost peak torque, which is the amount of force or power that a muscle can generate2. And there are not many exercises that would not benefit from this!
ATP Science L-Glutamine is a great product to add to any training program, and will facilitate better trianing, improved recovery and less muscle soreness. Not bad at all ...
