Glutamines importance was first demonstrated in the 1930s by Sir Hans Krebs - one of the pre-eminent biochemists of all time. Dr. Krebs - a master at metabolic cycles, is best known for his discovery of the citric acid cycle ( krebs cycle ) which creatine is involved in. But few are aware that he was the first to recognize glutamines significance in nitrogen metabolism.
Glutamine has now been recognized by professionals for providing significant contributions in reducing muscle breakdown, maintaining Glutathione (GSH) levels, improving protein synthesis, elevating GH levels, plus many other health beneficial functions. Glutamine supplements have been a critical staple in athletes diets due to the fact that glutamine levels fall after intense training and do not rise to full strength until complete recovery has occurred. It has been a critical supplement for AIDS patients because it helps prevent muscle wasting.
NANO GLUTAMINE – A BREAKTHROUGH PRODUCT
One problem with L-Glutamine is that it is highly insoluble. Put it in water and watch how poorly it mixes up. It will mix up like a cloudy liquid. If it does not dissolve, absorption can become difficult. Clinical science and practical experience have also proven that it does not reach the blood in concentration levels needed to fully replenish healthy levels of glutamine. In addition, a little known fact, is that almost all of the research done on free form glutamine supplementation was done in hospitals on subjects receiving the glutamine intravenously. Just because you buy and take something called glutamine, does not mean you are going to benefit from all the metabolic functions that glutamine performs. To address this potential problem, products were developed that contain glutamine peptide in place of L-glutamine; the peptide form allows these supplements to be consumed without glutamine being metabolised in your digestive system. The disadvantage is, glutamine peptides are so bitter tasting, it makes it hard to swallow. It is almost impossible to mask the bitter taste. Putting it in capsule form is then a thought. But to get recommended therapeutic doses you would have to consume at least 20capsules at a time; which is not practical.
Following in the footsteps of NANO Creatine, ASN – Advanced Sports Nutrition is proud to be the first company in the world to bring you another scientific breakthrough with the development of - NANO Glutamine. We have developed the world’s only NANO Glutamine supplement with improved absorption for uptake directly into your body.
NANO GLUTAMINE – EXCEPTIONAL PURITY
A lot of companies suggest you take at least 10grams of glutamine per serving. This is because a lot of glutamine is utilised by your digestive system, so the theory is if we flood the digestive tract with glutamine some will actually pass through into our body. If it could pass directly into our body without being ‘robbed’ by our digestive system you would not need to take as much. Therefore, because of the improved absorption of the NANO-Glutamine, only 3 grams per serving (approx 1 heaped teaspoon) is needed, providing far superior utilisation, results and cost effectiveness.
Adults only: Take 1 heaped scoop (3g) twice daily. Mix 1 scoop in 250ml of water or juice.
For increased recovery: Take 1 serving before & after exercise.
100% Nano Glutamine
