The L-Glutamine in Balance 100% Glutamine, though not an essential amino acid, is termed a conditionally-essential amino acid, as it is believed that during times of stress, we are unable to synthesize enough to meet our needs. Such conditions may be infection, sepsis or burns, amongst others. L-Glutamine has been used for decades to support sports peformance and recovery, being one of the most common ingredients in a range of pre-workout, intra-workout and post-workout nutritionals formulas, due to this amino acid's broad range of effects.
Research has shown that Glutamine boosts glycogen accumulation after exercise, which indicates uesfullness for recovery from glycogen-demanding long-duration sports and exercises, such as rowing, running and cycling1. Furthermore, Glutamine has been shown to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness after exercise, which indicates it will help particularly with the pain experienced 24-48 hours after exercise in weight lifters2,3. Balance Glutamine provides a no-filler, no-additive pure powder to meet all of your glutamine needs.
L-Glutamine has also been demonstrated to increase muscle power output, or peak torque, which certainly is a great thing for powerlifers, sprinters, or anyone requiring some explosive power. Balance 100% Glutamine may also be used to support the immune system, and assist with gastrointestinal mucosal healing. The mucosa is a layer of cell that protects our stomach and intestines, which can become damaged during conditions such as Crohn's and Coeliac's Disease. Balance Glutamine can also be considered a great brain food.
Balance 100% Glutamine is a great all round pure amino acid powder that can assist with sports performance and recovery, as well as a range of health conditions.
