Bodybuilding's Most Valuable Amino Acid
Athletes who neglect their intramuscular glutamine levels do themselves a grave disservice. L-Glutamine is the most important component of muscle protein, and a key nutrient for muscle repair and growth.
That's why supplementation with ProSource's free-form Glutamine --both before and after working out--is an indispensable component of the serious athlete's bodybuilding regimen.
Recent research also reveals that Glutamine's value goes beyond enhanced muscle recovery and repair. In fact, one landmark study has reported that L-glutamine supplementation can increase body weight, body cell mass, and intracellular water in a manner not unlike Creatine monohydrate.(2) Finally, clinical research suggests that glutamine is essential for maintaining intestinal function, immune response, and amino acid homeostasis during periods of severe stress (such as intense exercise).
