L-Glutamine is a conditionally-essential amino acid that is synthesized from glutamic acid via the enzyme glutamine synthetase. Under certain physiological conditions, the body can not synthesize enough of this amino acid to meet its needs, where it is used for a range of functions, such as supporting immune, brain and gastrointestinal health, and also funcitoning as a precursor to glutathione and glucosamine.
Despite all of these roles, the glutamine within Body Science Pure Glutamine Powder has actually gained popularity amongst sports and exercise enthusiasts for a separate range of reasons.
L-Glutamine has been put through a range of clinical trials, one of which demonstrated that when this amino acid is taken after exercise, it promotes glycogen synthesis1. Glycogen is the muscle storage form of glucose, which we deplete during exercise.
For this to replenish faster is one big biochemical step towards faster recovery. Another clinical trial examined the ability of glutamine to benefit peak torque—a measurement of power and strength—during training and delayed onset muscle soreness as well, where both parameters improved significantly over placebo and another amino acid supplement2.
Body Science Pure Glutamine Powder may be taken before, during or after exercise, as it can be of benefit during just about any stage of exercise or recovery. So if you're looking for an extra edge, look no further than BSc Pure Glutamine Powder.
