BCAA Powder, Glutamine from The Protein Works™ is considered 100% pure and the finest grade Glutamine powder in sports nutrition today. BCAA Powder, Glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid found in the muscles of the body. Considered to be a ‘must have’ supplement for those involved in intense training & exercise, Glutamine is key in promoting muscle development & improving post workout recovery. BCAA Powder, Glutaminealso helps ensure the immune system runs effectively as it helps the body to produce white blood cells which help fight off infections & disease. Using a Glutamine supplement can also help regulate blood sugar levels which can aid optimal brain function. BCAA Powder, Glutamine is an amino acid that’s traditionally used by strength athletes wanting to increase muscle mass because of the role it plays in cell volumisation and in the creation of a positive environment in the body to build quality muscle mass. It has also, following impressive studies, been advocated by experts for use by athletes during periods of intense training because of its ability to support the immune system, prevent over training and enhance recovery. Firstly, to appreciate Glutamine’s immune boosting properties you must first understand what happens to the body during periods of intense training. Whilst at rest your immune system functions efficiently, however research shows that when you train at an intensity higher than 85% of your maximum heart rate (near exhaustion), your oxygen usage vastly increases. This causes lactic acid to accumulate in the muscles, which in turn alters your PH and causes your body to pull alkaline reserves from bones and other mineral dense sources. Furthermore, muscle tissue is torn and muscle energy stores are depleted. All things considered the body has a lot to cope with and this can result in an ‘immune system crash’ which is where the health of the immune system is compromised and can last anywhere between 3 to 72 hours. This is where BCAA Powder, Glutamine can help since it’s been shown to improve the efficiency of cells and in turn help fight bacteria and viruses and ensure your immune system remains healthy even during periods of intense training. BCAA Powder, Glutamine has also been found to be an excellent supplement for those looking to lower their body fat percentage and keep muscle mass at the same time. This is because not only does glutamine help to regulate blood sugar levels and therefore help you when dieting, but also it can help promote muscle development and prevent muscle breakdown. This is the main reason most bodybuilders will supplement their diets with glutamine when ‘cutting’ for a competition, since it enables them to reach very low body fat levels whilst at the same time maintaining the muscle mass they’ve built ‘off season.’ Here at TPW™, you can have supreme confidence in the product quality and supply source.
