For several years Glutamine has enjoyed its status as a must-have for anyone pursuing a better physique. Working with elite athletes, Nutrabolics realized the bodybuilding value of Glutamine and set out to create an innovative supplement that could deliver unrivalled peak glutamine saturation in target tissues. This goal was realized with the development of Glutabolic. This advanced, rapidly absorbing Glutamine complex is scientifically engineered to increase whole body Glutamine levels to promote muscle recovery, boosted cell volume, and healthy immune function.*
Glutamine, traditionally considered a non-essential amino acid, often finds itself classified under the "conditionally essential" column, especially when strenuous exercise is the condition. After a bout of strenuous exercise, the body’s metabolic activity changes, triggering a cascade of events that warrant glutamine to surrender its non-essential status.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the muscle, but it isn't necessarily in the muscle where glutamine works its wonders. In fact, the muscle cell does not possess an import mechanism for glutamine; instead, intra-muscular glutamine, synthesized from ammonia and glutamic acid, serves as a storehouse for more important biological functions than directly affecting muscle building, yet many of these functions are indirectly beneficial to supporting measurable physique improvements.* Glutamine plays a vital role in promoting gut integrity and in the immune system.* For the athlete, the most compelling research on glutamine has demonstrated this amino acid's ability to support protein synthesis, muscle-cell hydration, and immune function, while limiting muscle catabolism and sparing glycogen. These facts were the driving force behind Glutabolic - a scientific approach to boost the effects glutamine supplementation.
How it works:
Glutabolic is designed to increase whole body glutamine levels by enhancing uptake, bioavailability and digestion, which ultimately provides maximum muscle-tissue saturation.* This is accomplished with an exclusive array of three powerful, yet diverse glutamine complexes that deliver a remarkable range of benefits.*
Glutamine Malate is a new advanced form of glutamine bound to Malic Acid. This distinctive molecular bond has a strong effect on the bioavailability of glutamine in muscle cells. Glutamine Malate also works to enhance nitrogen retention, as well as extreme cell volumization within muscle cells for unparalleled effectiveness.*
Glutamine AKG is a state-of-the-art glutamine compound that is not only extremely well tolerated by the body, but has such a vastly superior uptake and retention profile that it makes plain L-Glutamine obsolete. AKG is actually a glutamine precursor that efficiently bypasses the gut and has the ability to enter the muscle cell for superior absorption and cell volumization. This helps increase vasodilation during workouts and post-workout.*
Glutamine Peptides are clinically suggested to be highly stable in the body and readily absorbed by the digestive tract.* This form of glutamine is peptide bonded (a chain of amino acids) to allow for better transport into the blood stream and muscle tissue where it is needed.* Glutamine peptide is also much more stable in solution, higher temperatures, and low PH than free-form glutamine (free-form L-glutamine tends to break down to ammonia and glutamic acid rather quickly in solution). The digestive tract also has peptide transport systems that allow peptides to be better absorbed and utilized than free-form amino acids. In short, peptide-bonded glutamine enhances the bioavailability of glutamine in the bloodstream, which helps to support more glutamine to be available to the muscle tissue.*
