Allmax Micronized Glutamine 400g
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 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 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 glutamine’s effects 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.

1. What is Glutamine?
Glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body. It is called a ‘conditionally essential amino acid’, meaning that the body is able to manufacture Glutamine on its own but during times of extreme stress (such as following an intense workout) the body is not able to produce enough and may benefit from supplemental Glutamine. Glutamine plays a role in the metabolism of protein while strengthening the immune system and supporting recovery. This important amino acid can help with the removal of lactic acid and prevent DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).
2. Where does Glutamine come from?
Glutamine is a precursor of Glutathione, an amino acid, which is naturally found in the body. Glutamine can be found naturally in beans, meats, fish, poultry and dairy products.
3. Who can use ALLMAX Nutrition Glutamine?
Glutamine is a natural supplement and can be used by anyone who may benefit from it. ALLMAX Nutrition Glutamine is ideal for athletes and those who perform intense workouts as it can help to speed up recovery and maintain muscle mass. However, glutamine is also used in the hospital in extreme cases such as burn patients and those suffering from cancer to boost their immune system.
4. How does ALLMAX Nutrition Glutamine help me in the gym?
Glutamine is an anti-catabolic agent, meaning that when taken after a workout it can help to repair muscle damage and promotes new muscle tissue growth. Glutamine has also shown a positive effect on the immune system. When you’re training intensely your immune system may be weakened due to the stress put on your muscles. Glutamine can help to boost your immune system and prevent you from getting sick, allowing you to continue training at your peak.
Additionally, if you’re a competitor and dieting Glutamine can provide a boost to your immune system during times of caloric restriction. Glutamine can also help to reduce stress during that time.
