Glutamine

Glutamine from The Protein Works™ is selectively sourced to ensure only the finest quality Glutamine is used in our products. Glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid found in the muscles of the body. Considered to be a 'must have' supplement for those involved in intense training and exercise, it is key in promoting muscle development and improving post workout recovery.

 

Glutamine - A Versatile Amino Acid

Glutamine is an amino acid that’s traditionally used by strength athletes wanting to increase muscle mass because of the role it plays in cell volumisation and in the creation of a positive environment in the body to build quality muscle mass. It has also, following impressive studies, been advocated by experts for use by athletes during periods of intense training because of its ability to support the immune system, prevent over training and enhance recovery.

 

Glutamine & Immune Health

Firstly, to appreciate Glutamine's immune boosting properties you must first understand what happens to the body during periods of intense training. Whilst at rest your immune system functions efficiently, however research shows that when you train at an intensity higher than 85% of your maximum heart rate (near exhaustion), your oxygen usage vastly increases. This causes lactic acid to accumulate in the muscles, which in turn alters your PH and causes your body to pull alkaline reserves from bones and other mineral dense sources. Furthermore, muscle tissue is torn and muscle energy stores are depleted.

All things considered the body has a lot to cope with and this can result in an ‘immune system crash’ which is where the health of the immune system is compromised and can last anywhere between 3 to 72 hours. This is where glutamine can help since it’s been shown to improve the efficiency of cells and in turn help fight bacteria and viruses and ensure your immune system remains healthy even during periods of intense training.

 

Glutamine & Fat Loss

Glutamine has also been found to be an excellent supplement for those looking to lower their body fat percentage and keep muscle mass at the same time. This is because not only does glutamine help to regulate blood sugar levels and therefore help you when dieting, but also it can help promote muscle development and prevent muscle breakdown. This is the main reason most bodybuilders will supplement their diets with glutamine when ‘cutting’ for a competition, since it enables them to reach very low body fat levels whilst at the same time maintaining the muscle mass they’ve built ‘off season.’

Q. What is Glutamine?

A. Glutamine is the most abundant non-essential amino acid in the human body.

Q. When should I use Glutamine?

A. It depends on your lifestyle and goals, we recommend the following optimal serving times. Consume 15g daily. Usually servings are split into 3 equal servings of 5g in the morning, 5g in the afternoon and 5g before bed.

Q. What are main reasons for using Glutamine?

A. To restore glycogen levels, build new tissue and aid faster recovery after intense training and exercise. By adding Glutamine to your supplement regime, it increases the levels of glutaminc acid in the body, which helps metal focus and general mood.

Q. What does Glutamine taste like?

A. Glutamine doesn't really have a taste when mixed in with a protein shake. If taken on its own then is can have a slight bitter taste, so is best mixed with a flavoured juice.

Q. Is Glutamine an essential or non essential amino acid ?

A. Glutamine is considered a semi essential amino acid as your body produces Glutamine.

Q. What are the differences between essential and non essential amino acids?

A. There are in excess of 20 amino acids which make up all the proteins in the body. Between 9 and 12 of those are produced naturally by the body, and these are known as non essential amino acids. The other amino acids are not produced by the body therefore diet or supplements must be the source of those essential amino acids.

Q. Are there any specific health benefits associated with Glutamine?

A. Studies have shown that supplementing with Glutamine can boost the immune system and prevent infection and promote healing.

Q. Is all Glutamine the same no matter what brand you use?

A. As with so many things in life, if you don't ask the right questions, you won't get the right answers! The quality of ingredient can vary significantly and therefore the potency will do too. In addition, just because a product may be called pure it doesn't mean that it necessarily is. We recommend you read the ingredients and nutritionals on the label to better understand exactly what you are buying. We can assure you that our products are 100% pure. At TPW™, we are committed to transparency and openness in all our products and that is why we provide a Product Profile on Glutamine which gives a complete overview of the product's background including our approval, location of manufacture and money back guarantee applicability.

Q. How can I tell if the Glutamine I buy is good quality?

A. Look for the Certificate of Analysis which will give you the assurance that what you are buying is what it says it is.

Q. Is Glutamine suitable for vegans and vegetarians?

A. Yes, it is suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.

Q. Can I use Glutamine with other supplements?

A. The simple answer is yes. We recommend you always check serving instructions on each product if you plan on taking a combination of supplements.

Q. What if any side effects will I get from taking Glutamine?

A. We haven't heard of any nasty side effects from taking TPW™ Glutamine

Q. Is Glutamine found in natural whole foods?

A. Yes, it is naturally found in meat and dairy products, such as beef, pork and poultry. However, anyone who trains hard and heavy may require additional supplement intake of Glutamine to meet their body's requirements

Q. What effects should I expect from taking Glutamine alongside my training regime ?

A. Results vary depending on your diet, nutrition, training and individual body type. For an average individual, it helps the growth of lean muscle mass as well as muscle recovery.

Q. Who should take / benefit from using Glutamine?

A. Bodybuilders and strength athletes. Endurance athletes. Those new to weight training. People involved in team sports. Those who participate in regular intense training and exercise.

I picked up 1kg of Orange burst and thought i would give it a try. It took a little while to get use to the taste as i am not use to flavoured water but now i really like it. I often add this to other drinks and blitz in my blender with a glass full of ice to make a slush in the evening or after gym :) On longer workouts i'll sip this through the session.

I bought the flavoured version and I take 5g after training mixed with whey isolate 90 and some dextrose.I mix it with my supergreens on off days.great product and great value compared to other suppliers.

  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
I really like this supplement. It tastes fine and helps so much after a hard work out plus the day after the day after!
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
tastes amazin and gives you energy after the gym nothin better than this instead of fizzy drinks
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Was sceptical of the benefits of glutamine as a DOMS reducer / minimiser. After the first week or so of use began to notice a measurable reduction is post workout DOMS - especially noticeable the day after the day after leg day! Need to make sure you use a dosage that relates to your body size though - lack of flavour is no problems - just mix with protein!
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Bought the unflavoured 250g version to give it a go and am very happy with it. It mixes easily and is very good value considering other products on the market. Will hopefully be buying a larger pack next time!
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Great value compared to everything else on the market, I add the unflavored to the all in one which already contains glute but topping up that will do no harm. All in all very happy with another great value product.
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Its very good stuff and taste ok.........only problem I have is the scoop that comes with it holds 2.5ml and I take 5ml 3 times a day other issue is that the scoop gets stuff stuck all over it these are minor things but otherwise its decent.

I have the Apple Spike, great tasting, mixes well and does the job, this will be a regular order for me.
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Use this in my post workout shake with whey 80 and dextrose. Good value for money and I always add in more than what is normally included in a pre blended shake.
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Mixes well and can't complain about the price. Essential product .
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
An absolute must have amino , have tried both the flavoured and unflavoured version , unflavoured is fine when you throw into your recovery shake, mixes in no problem and you can never dispute the benefits of using glutamine. Good price and good quality .
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
The unflavoued seems to taint the taste of the protein its mixed with. didn't really feel the effects of the glutamine.

Feel like when I start my cut it will be more effective though
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Add this in to my protein shake to help with my recovery and works just great. Fantastic value for money for such a high quality product, never have a protein shake without using this now
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Great Product, Mixes really well, I have tried both orange and apple flavours and both are great.

1kg bags make this a great buy
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
No after taste, dissolves fully in fruit juice or water so there is no bitty scum at the bottom of your glass. Overall a great prodcut!
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
The berry tastes great!
Mixes just like a squash and can feel the results within a day or two.
Highly recommend this.
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
This product tastes lush, I got the apple flavour, have only used it for a couple of days thus far but it mixes easily and is yummy to drink.
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
I was advised to add glutamine to my PW shake by a PT. It certainly does seem to speed up recovery time for me. Great delivery and packaging as always from TPW.
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Thought I'd give it a try-and needless to say I was not disappointed!! Mixes great, not gritty bits in the bottom etc. But most importantly recovery times are down a considerable amount so I'll be adding it to my pwo for a long time coming!!
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Smells a bit weird and taste isn't amazing but I've been taking it for nearly a week and feel good. I find it mixes best if you use a fork rather than putting it in a shaker. My recovery seems to definitely have improved and I don't feel like I need those rest days every couple of days but obviously it's good to get a couple throughout the week.
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Good product but I find it needs a lot mixing unlike the other tpw products I have used... But I'm guessing this is inherit of glutamine itself.
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
Excellent product - great for inclusion in your PWO shake.
  • Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

Bought the glutamine hoping it helps a little with recovery as training a little harder coming up to competition. There is no evidence that it improves muscle size so dont buy it on that premise but has been shown to help with immune system, hydration and recovery.
TPW glutamine is pretty tastless which is good. Mixes fine.

I've always had Glutamine since I've been working out and tried lots of different company's the last company I tried is concidered to be one of the leading brands and the powder was clumpy. TPW is a very fine powder really impressed with it. Fine powder means quicker absorption :)

I was advised that the healing process of my muscles would be aided by the use of this by the friendly guy on the TPW twitter feed and so ordered it, it arrived the next day and I started using this in glutamine product in with my cheery b flavour whey shake and I can feel the benefits within a day - my muscles healed quicker and my cardio workouts improved - even setting a new pb today for 2.4km run - 16.15 !!
A great product - next order I may well order the "works' as this has glutamine added in - but I highly recommend this product - top product - top service
