Why

Predator Nutrition Glutamine supplies the highest concentration L-Glutamine on the market today. Glutamine is rapidly depleted during exercise as well as during times of physical and mental stress so replacing it is vital as insufficient Glutamine can lead to depressed immunity, and poor recovery. Supplementing Glutamine can help support faster recovery, as well as supply your body with a critical ingredient for supporting general health.

When

Glutamine is especially important when dieting as the body will increase its breakdown of Glutamine at that time. In addition, when using Glutamine during the day the critical times are to supplement this in the morning, before bedtime and during and after exercise.

Who

Anybody can use Glutamine but it is particularly important for those who have a stressful lifestyle, compromised immunity or who are dieting.

Predator Nutrition Glutamine Review

Predator Nutrition is committed to offering sports nutrition consumers a growing range of products which meet the highest specifications to enable you to get the best out of your exercise and nutrition program and with the introduction of our Pure 100% Glutamine supplement you can now benefit from one of the most researched supplements of all.

Glutamine's Role in the Body

Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid meaning that under certain conditions it becomes essential to supply glutamine via the diet as your body is unable to synthesise enough glutamine from other amino acids to support your dietary needs. Glutamine is rapidly broken down during times of stress, both physical stress such as a tough exercise sessions or lack of sleep as well as mental stress. For a hard training athlete the theory behind glutamine supplementation is to replace what your body uses up during and after exercise to enable you to maintain optimum performance and recovery.

Glutamine - What Does Research Show?

The research on glutamine has tended to focus on its ability to influence performance, recovery or influence hormone levels.

Performance/Building Muscle

The research on glutamine has tended to show that for performance or building muscle it is not likely to make a difference. This tends to be argued against by bodybuilders who swear by this compound but at least in conditions where you are consuming adequate protein and calories we do not believe it has an anabolic effect. With that said there is evidence all the same that glutamine can enhance muscle protein synthesis.[1]

On the other hand there is evidence showing that for endurance athletes glutamine ingestion can aid performance[2] as well as enhance glycogen replenishment.[3]

Recovery and General Health

Many athletes will take a dose of glutamine after a workout in the belief it can help speed up recovery. There is indeed research supporting this claim as well as evidence showing that glutamine supplementation can reduce muscle protein breakdown[4] and thereby help preserve muscle mass especially when dieting.

Arguably glutamine’s most positive role is its ability to aid intestinal health, something which we have discussed in our article on improving digestive health. Numerous studies have demonstrated glutamine’s ability to support intestinal health.[5][6][7][8][9]

When used to support digestive function it is ideal to supplement this on an empty stomach.

Energy Booster During!

I use this product as part of my BCAA's during my workouts, I find it gives me more energy during sets to complete more exercises

Good product

Ive always used L-Glutamine. It helps me recover faster and boosts my immunity. This product offers a quality Glutamine at a good price point.

Cheap and effective recovery supp

Glutamine is great for bodybuilding because it helps you recover faster. I've given it four stars only though because I only think you need it when dieting not bulking which makes it less useful if you're bulking.
