ALLMAX - Glutamine - 1,000 Gram(s) - NPN: 80006458 -- Glutamine plays a role in the metabolism of protein while strengthening the immune system and supporting recovery. This important amino acid can help with the removal of lactic acid and prevent DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). ALLMAX Glutamine uses Glutamine crystals made from a natural fermentation process. This state-of-the-art process creates a unique, purified and isolated Glutamine ideal for supplementation. It is the most abundant amino acid found in muscle tissue. Glutamine also helps to diminish catabolism caused by an increase in the stress hormone cortisol, which is elevated during exercise. A recent study conducted on the effects of glutamine on the muscle found that it actually blocks the action of cortisols interference with muscle protein synthesis and repair. This study shows that glutamine can provide an anti-catabolic effect. It can minimize the amount of muscle breakdown and can be particularly helpful when consumed after working out, when catabolism is at its peak.
