There a 3 types of Amino Acids, Conditional Amino Acids, Nonessential Amino Acids and Essential Amino Acids, However all of them are important to us. 'Essential' amino acid just means they cannot be made by the body. Amino acid supplements are especially vital for athletes because they support muscle building, and people over 50 as generally people over 50 lose muscle mass. They form proteins which are the building blocks of health and Amino acid supplements can help ensure you have the amino acids you need for cell growth, tissue repair and body functions. Amino Acids also play a vital role in supporting lung function, balance blood sugar, maintaining a healthy heart and lots more.

L-Glutamine Powder 500g

Fuel for muscles in an easy to use powdered form.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue, where it plays a vital role in metabolic processes. Intense training depletes Glutamine levels and although glutamine is present in high protein foods, such as meat and fish, it's used as a supplement because if it's taken just before or just after exercise, it can help maintain glutamine levels during this crucial time. This can in turn help the recovery of muscles after exercise.
