WHAT IS GLUTAMINE?
BULK POWDERS™ Glutamine, part of our Pure Series™ range, is the purest Glutamine powder available, and at a price that puts other brands to shame.
Glutamine is one of the most popular products in the Pure Series™ range. Its popularity stems from the fact that Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in muscle tissue. Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid; this means that during specific periods (such as exercising) the body uses more Glutamine that is being synthesised.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I'm bodybuilding: How can glutamine help me?
Glutamine can be a very effective supplement for bodybuilders. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid within muscle tissue, however when you train, glutamine levels can be significantly reduced as muscle tissue breaks down – even more so with the bodybuilding style of training. During these periods Glutamine becomes a conditionally essential amino acid, meaning your body cannot synthesise enough to meet demand.
What is in glutamine powder and why does the body need it?
Glutamine powder is 100% L Glutamine, which is a conditionally essential amino acid. This means at certain times, this amino acid is needed from the diet, as the body cannot synthesis enough. One of these occasions is after you work out – training causes muscle glutamine levels to deplete to a point where the amino acid becomes conditionally essential. Consuming L Glutamine Powder will provide your body with a rich source of Glutamine that will help to restore muscle glutamine levels.
Do I take glutamine before or after workouts?
Glutamine is best consumed post-workout or intra-workout.
What's the connection between glutamine and amino acids?
Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid, this means that during certain periods (such as post-workout) it becomes essential to be consumed in the diet, as the body cannot synthesise enough to meet this deficiency.
