Do you workout? You may need this! In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro says that glutamine is an amino acid that he used to take religiously when he was bodybuilding. He just recently got excited about this supplement again and started taking it with his new fitness program.
What Is Glutamine?
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and help rebuild muscle. They are natural and needed. Glutamine is an amino acid that is most abundant in muscles. Notably, it drops after working out which results in decreased strength and stamina. 5 to 7 days are necessary to replenish lost glutamine. Other functions of glutamine are protein metabolism, cell volumizing, and as an anticatabolic to prevent muscle wasting.
How Alpha Uses Glutamine
Alpha is using glutamine again and feels better now. He uses 10 to 15 grams per day, which one scoop is 5 grams. It’s tasteless, safe, and dissolves almost instantly. You can mix with water or juice -or- take as a powder shot chased with water. He takes before and after working out.
Glutamine is natural, beneficial, and assists with both muscle building & maintenance. As you age, muscle shrinks at a rate of 1 pound per year after age 30. It’s important to take glutamine, in Alpha’s opinion.
