In the 24-48 hours following exercise, it is critical for active individuals to address protein metabolism. Amino acid availability, including l-glutamine, is important in the processes of muscle protein metabolism.
Glutamine accounts for greater than 60% of the total intramuscular free amino acids in the body and virtually every cell uses it. But because the body has the ability to produce glutamine, it has long been considered a non-essential amino acid. However, during prolonged periods of intense exercise, the body cannot produce enough glutamine to keep up with demand, which in turn can reduce performance, and immune function.
Supplemental glutamine helps:
"Good sleep, good recovery, proper nutrition and hydration. EnduroPacks products help support these "extras" through a great line of products", said ultra mountain and trail runner, Devon Yanko.
EnduroPacks offers a L-glutamine complex as a key element for post-workout recovery. We recommend 1,000 to 2,000 mg of glutamine each day after exercise to promote muscle recovery.
Our Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) recovery formula provides essential BCAAs in a 2:1:1 ratio that are critical to muscle protein synthesis. Accelerate muscle recovery and...View full product details
