After a strenuous workout, your body begins to enter a catabolic state (muscle breakdown) and needs help recovering and re-building muscle. Glutamine helps prevent cortisol from interfering with muscle protein synthesis. Athletes and bodybuilders can benefit from supplementing with Glutamine, especially post-workout.
For better recovery and reduced catabolism, Allmax Nutrition recommends taking Glutamine twice per day. Mix up one teapsoon or 5 grams into water, juice or your favorite beverage twice per day. One serving should be post-workout with a protein like Isoflex or before bed for the best results.
