- Supports the immune system
- Prevents muscle breakdown
- Accelerates recovery
L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, in a large part because it is needed a lot by the brain, intestines, kidneys, lungs and immune system and also because you can manufacture your own. It is actually termed a 'non-essential amino acid', but this can be misleading, because under times of high training stress, if you leave your body to produce its own supply, it will break down muscle tissue in order to make it available.
Logic dictates that this is not desirable when you are a training athlete. Therefore, supplementation with L-Glutamine immediately after exercise stops the body scavenging for an alternative supply and eating into your well-earned muscle. It also ensures that plenty of L-Glutamine is available to fuel the immune system. Numerous studies have considered the effects of L-Glutamine supplementation on immune function and although the findings are mixed, there appears to be enough evidence to support its worth*. Couple the benefits of L-Glutaimine with HMB and it's clear that there are huge gains to be achieved by taking a supplement containing both of these.
HOW TO USE TORQ GLUTAMINE
DOSE: To maintain your muscle integrity and fuel the immune system, take 6-10 grams (2 level scoops) of TORQ glutamine immediately following exercise.
USAGE INSTRUCTIONS: For best results, pour 500ml of fruit juice into our TORQ recovery mixer bottle, add TORQ glutamine powder and shake vigorously before drinking.
