AST GL3 L-Glutamine
Glutamine Powder to Support Muscle Growth, Unflavored Powder to Increase Muscle Hardness, Strength, and Enhance Recovery
GL3, 2-Aminoglutaramic Acid, is a pure L-Glutamine supplement in crystalline powder form. Glutamine has become more prominent as new studies suggest its unique contribution to protein synthesis (muscle growth), anti-proteolytic (prevents muscle tissue breakdown) functions and growth hormone elevating effects.*
- Increase Muscle Hardness*
- Increase Muscle Cell Hydration*
- Increase Protein Synthesis*
- Increase Muscle Strength*
- Enhances Recovery*
Glutamine provides a critical link in muscle metabolism not shared by any other single amino acid, and GL3 makes utilizing glutamine a realistic and effective endeavor.* GL3 is pure, L-Glutamine in an odorless and tasteless powder.
Glutamine is the most abundant single amino acid in the blood and in the intracellular free amino acid pool (most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue). It comprises 61% of the amino acid pool in skeletal muscle. Glutamine's unique structure, containing two nitrogen side chains, consists of 19% nitrogen - making it the primary transporter of nitrogen into the muscle cell. In fact, glutamine alone is responsible for 35% of the nitrogen that gets into the muscle cell. Glutamine literally drives muscle building nitrogen into the muscle cell where it is synthesized for growth.*
Glutamine concentrations fall markedly after training and remain low until complete recovery. What this means is, the very rigors of weight training "leak" nitrogen carrying glutamine from muscle tissue. This fall in glutamine is catabolic to muscle tissue - "The Training Paradox". Supplementing with glutamine spares free glutamine in muscle tissue, counteracts the fall in muscle protein synthesis, and improves nitrogen balance.* Glutamine overcomes "The Training Paradox".*
You train with weights to build muscle. The more intensely you train, and the heavier the overload you subject your muscles to, the greater the growth response will be.
Glutamine is a key factor in muscle growth, and controlling the skeletal muscle/whole body glutamine gradient is critical in maintaining and building muscle tissue.* The higher the muscle glutamine levels you can maintain, the less chance you have of falling into catabolism and the faster muscle will grow.* But now there is more...
Now for the exciting news -
In a recent release of the prestigious American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the results of a study on glutamine revealed that a single 2 gram oral dose of glutamine elevated circulating growth hormone levels significantly. With GL3 you'll be able to significantly increase your growth hormone levels!*
Supplementing with GL3 L-Glutamine is an effective way of assisting new muscle growth!
How to use GL3 L-Glutamine:
Take 1 serving 2 times daily. How and when you train will determine when you schedule your GL3 dosage.
Train in the morning.
- Schedule your first serving about 30 minutes to 1 hour before your morning workout.
- Take 1 serving 30 minutes after you train.
- Take 1/2 serving before bed.
Train twice daily.
- Take 1/2 serving (5 grams) 30 minutes before your morning workout.
- Take 1/2 serving (5 grams) 30 minutes after your morning workout.
- Take 1/2 serving (5 grams) 30 minutes before your evening workout.
- Take 1/2 serving (5 grams) 30 minutes after your evening workout.
- Take 1/2 serving before bed.
What's the best way to take GL3 Micronized L-Glutamine?
The best way to take GL3 is to mix 5 to 10 grams in about 6 ounces of water or juice. Juice might be preferred as it may enhance glutamine uptake into the muscle cell.
You should drink immediately and not let GL3 stay mixed in a liquid for more than a couple of hours.
