Muscle protection

Protect your muscles with EVOX – L-Glutamine.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the muscle tissue.  Controlled scientific studies have shown that glutamine is a conditionally essential animo acid without which the body is not able to function optimally.  Strenuous physical activity causes a fall in glutamine stores, this depletion of the glutamine pool in the skeletal muscle tissue provides the signal for muscle catabolism, leading to significant losses in lean muscle mass.  Documented clinical studies have shown that glutamine supplementation will have a significant impact on maintaining a positve nitrogen balance which is essential for muscle development and recovery.  Additionally glutamine have been shown to maximise muscle growth throughout increasing growth hormone levels; regulate cell volume as a regulator of the balance between anabolism and catabolism of fat, carbohydrates and protein; provide fuel for the immune system; be an essential component of acid-base homeostasis.

Glutamine can be used as a protective agent to prevent muscle damage, as well as a rescue agent to aid in speeding muscle recovery after vigorous physical activity.
