AllMax Nutrition uses only the purest raw ingredients. Our Glutamine is not heat or chemically treated. Glutamine is highly in demand throughout the body. It is used in the gut and immune system extensively to maintain optimal performance. 60% of free-form amino acids floating in skeletal muscles are L-glutamine. L-glutamine plays a very important role in protein metabolism, and it appears to be a very important nutrient for body builders. When supplemented, it may help bodybuilders reduce the amount of muscle deterioration that occurs because other tissues that need glutamine will not rob the glutamine stored in the muscle cells.

L-Glutamine Review Review by AstroNutrition In-House Review
L-glutamine is an amino acid supplement often geared towards body builders. This is because it can improve muscle recovery, exhibits anticatabolic behavior, improves protein synthesis, and promotes muscle hydration. Many think it improves performance, but studies have not found it to have any effect of muscular performance even when taken at high doses.
Indirectly, it does help improve muscle strength. This is done through its ability to promote proper glucose regulation, immune function, protein synthesis, and nitrogen balance. Thus it is useful for all training althetes.
Glutamine also has potential for helping dieters, diabetics, and others trying to lose weight or dealing with fluctuating blood sugar levels that cause carb cravings. This is because glutamine can help control cravings. This use of glutamine has long been promoted as part of the Atkins Diet. There are also studies that show glutamine can help with glucose management in the guy, kidneys, and other tissues.
Glutamine can also be a natural GH-booster. Daily doses of 2 grams have been found to increase circulating growth hormone levels.
Glutamine has many other benefits such as improving gastrointestinal health, decreasing wound healing time, boosting the immune system health, protecting the live from chemotherapy damage, lessening alcohol cravings, and acting as a building block for important neurotransmitters that improve brain function. For these reasons, it is found in a variety of supplements including ones for bodybuilding, weight loss, blood sugar regulation, and general health. However, it is often not present in a multi-gram dose necessary to be effective.
The best way to take glutamine is to mix the white powder supplement in liquid and quickly drink it. If you wait to drink it, the powder will collect on the bottom of the glass. It is best to take it in 5 to 15 gram dosages twice a day (once right before bed and another right when you get up). Those following extremely limited carb diets might prefer to take twice as much a day with two additional doses. (Posted on 2/17/11)
