Glutamine supplements is the first supplement outside of the five foundational supplements (Protein, Greens, Omega 3, Multivitamins and Probiotics) that anyone with a training or workout regiment should consider adding to their supplementation program. Glutamine has been shown to promote glycogen storage and glucose synthesis without the use of carbohydrates. + Read more >
Because of its ability to form glucose, studies have shown glutamine supplements can actually help curb carbohydrate cravings while dieting and still allow you to optimize your training. This is especially useful for athletes that are competing in individual sports with weight classes or for someone who is on a weight-loss program. Using glutamine supplements will ensure you get the most out of your glycogen stores while optimizing performance and muscle recovery. Although it is great for muscle recovery, the benefits of glutamine for the body extend much further. Glutamine is great for immune function, combating cortisol, aiding in digestive tract repair and stimulating growth hormone release. Young, old, active or inactive, the benefits of glutamine supplementation are countless. Body Energy Club’s inventory includes Canada’s widest selection of glutamine supplements in powders (both flavoured and unflavoured), capsules and tablets. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.
FULL BODY RECOVERY HELPS the Body Repair and Recover from Training MINIMIZES Catabolism REDUCES Muscle Soreness INCREASES Protein Synthesis and Nitrogen Retention BOOSTS Immune System Glutamine is a naturally occurring amino acid and one of the most abundant amino acids in the body (comprising approximately 30% of amino acids in the plasma). It is usually classified as a conditionally essential amino acid, as it is produced by the body, but during periods of extreme stress or trauma, it is released from the body and may need to be replenished. Glutamine is naturally found in beans, poultry, fish and dairy products. The majority of Glutamine is produced in the skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. Additionally, glutamine is synthesized in the lungs, liver and brain. It is predominately used for fuel by the small intestines, immune system, hair follicles and the gastrointestinal tract. Glutamine supplementation is beneficial during periods of stress, such as after training Glutamine ensures the body remains in a state of anabolism. For those who train, supplementing with glutamine ensures the body’s stores of this important amino acid are optimized and the skeletal muscle size is maintained. Working out can lead to suppression of the immune system. Intense exercise can quickly deplete glutamine in the muscle cells causing the immune system to weaken and decreases the body’s levels of glutamine. Research has shown that supplementation with glutamine can alleviate the decline of glutamine concentration in the bloodstream following intense exercise. Glutamine May Diminish Catabolism Glutamine also helps to diminish catabolism caused by an increase in the stress hormone cortisol, which is elevated during exercise. A recent study conducted on the effects of glutamine on the muscle found that glutamine actually blocks the action of cortisol’s interference with muscle protein synthesis and repair. This study shows that glutamine can provide an anti-catabolic effect which is beneficial for athletes and bodybuilders. Glutamine supplementation has been found to help elevate glutamine levels in the body and produce an anti-catabolic effect. It can minimize the amount of muscle breakdown and can be particularly helpful when consumed after working out, when catabolism is at its peak. ALLMAX Glutamine is manufactured with the purest raw ingredients at a Pharmaceutical Grade Manufacturing facility ALLMAX Nutrition™ Japanese Micronized Glutamine provides recovery after training and enhances the immune system that can be compromised during intense exercise. ALLMAX uses proprietary GLUTASURE™ technology to minimize the particle size of the glutamine, creating a clean, white and extremely fine powder. ALLMAX Nutrition uses only the purest raw ingredients through a pharmaceutical grade manufacturing facility. Our pharmaceutical grade Glutamine is not heat or chemically treated. ALLMAX GLUTAMINE is available in 100 gram, 400 gram and 1000 gram sizes.$9.99
Why is Fermented L-Glutamine Best? L-Glutamine powder should be a clean, white colour with no yellow or slightly brown powder. Some cheaper glutamines are sourced from wheat. Wheat is hard to digest and is ONLY 30% glutamine. Some L-Glutamine is sourced from shellfish where there may be measurable amounts of harmful heavy metals. L-Glutamine comes from a fermentation process of beets. Beets are fermented with probiotic cultures, which means a 100% vegan fermented L-Glutamine. North Coast Naturals Fermented L-Glutamine is absolutely pure glutamine from Ajinomoto® — the only glutamine manufacturer in the world with a master drug file number for L-Glutamine. North Coast Naturals Fermented Glutamine: -100% pure from Natural Sources -Non-GMO -VEGAN -Unflavoured -Zero fillers, zero sugar and zero impurities -No shellfish or other animal products -Fermented with probiotic culture -100% pure pharmaceutical grade L-Glutamine manufactured by Ajinomoto of Japan What Is L-Glutamine? L-Glutamine is an amino acid found in most protein rich foods (milk, cheese, meat, eggs) and all quality protein powders. Glutamine and l-glutamine can be used interchangeably.$20.99
Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, the body may require more Glutamine than it can produce. Under these circumstances Glutamine may be considered a "conditionally essential" amino acid. Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (an anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (immune system lymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes). In addition, Glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance and a nitrogen transporter.$7.35
Found in high concentrations in your brain and muscles, glutamine is the ideal supplement for both your body and your mind. Your brain uses it to make the important neurotransmitter glutamic acid, which can optimize your ability to concentrate. Your muscles use glutamine to rebuild and maintain their strength after exercise, while your digestive tract uses it to maintain the integrity and strength of the stomach and intestinal lining. Often recommended by practitioners as nutritional support in a variety of different clinical applications, including: leaky gut, poor concentration, muscle pain, depression, sports nutrition, tissue damage, cravings, and many others.$8.27

Minimizing muscle catabolism (breakdown) Enhances Muscle Recovery Increases growth hormone levels Encourage muscle growth and strength gains Slow muscle breakdown and promote healing after intense exercise Glycine’s cell-volumizing effects may be enhanced when it is used with glutamine and alanine Promoting cell volume and aiding protein synthesis Preventing the build up of toxic by products in muscle cells Glutamine may enhance the effectiveness of alanine. pH adjusting co-factors buffer the impact of digestion and reduce gastric destruction. Pathway nutrients amplifies the internal (endogenous) production of branch chain amino acids creatingeven greater anticatabolic activity. Precision Gluta PLX plays a major role in synthesizing muscle protein and cell-volumizing. Gluta PLX contains a glycine ingredient for cell-volumizing which helps to enhance muscle memory, increase growth and prevent the build up of toxic by products. Glutamine is highly in demand throughout the body. It is used in the gut and immune system extensively to maintain optimal performance. 60% of free-form amino acids floating in skeletal muscles is L-glutamine. L-glutamine plays a very important role in protein metabolism, and it appears to be a very important nutrient for body builders. When supplemented, it may help body builders reduce the amount of muscle deterioration that occurs because other tissues that need glutamine will not rob the glutamine stored in the muscle cells. Precision Gluta PLX Pathway Complex Calcium Alpha Ketoglutarate, Zinc Citrate, L–Glutamic Acid [(S)-2-Aminopentanedioic Acid] – this trio of pathway nutrients amplifies the internal (endogenous) production of branch chain amino acids creating even greater anti-catabolic activity.
