STOP CATABOLISM & MAXIMISE RECOVERY
Yesterday was legs day, and you guys all know what that means – a world of hurt today. We’ve all felt it, that kinda hurt when walking up stairs is like climbing Mt Everest. And walkin’ downstairs is even worse. In fact just gettin’ out of your chair can be a real challenge.
But those days are gone for me, and there’s no goin’ back! Now I’m not giving any prizes for guessing how I stop the hurt, seeing you’re reading this here website page, but let me say that this Glutamine formula is the REAL DEAL!
You see, when you train hard like I do, you tear down heaps of muscle tissue, your Glutamine levels take a hammering, and whammo – you’ve gone catabolic before you know it. And you stay that way til your Glutamine levels get back up there. Now the fastest and best way to get back into Glutamine balance in my humble opinion is to start pumpin’ in the MAX’S Glutamine+ as soon as you can after your workout’s over. That’s it – pretty simple when you know how.
Try it – you’ll thank me.
Keepin’ it real in the Lab
Premium Grade Glutamine Complex
Glutamine powder stops muscle catabolism (tissue breakdown) and stimulates muscle anabolism (muscle synthesis) after intense workouts. It also helps prevent the immune suppression associated with hard training, which means you stay healthy, and it can provide energy for muscles and cognitive function to keep you firing right through your workouts. This specific amino acid is the number one recovery nutrient all serious trainers should be using.
While L-Glutamine is an effective supplement powder, it is quickly broken down in your gut meaning not all of the amino acid you consume is used effectively. MAX’S Glutamine+ combines fast acting free form L-Glutamine with stabilised N-Acetyl L-Glutamine for a fast and sustained release. N-Acetyl L-Glutamine is an acetylated analog of L-Glutamine which is more stable and slower to break down than free form L-Glutamine.
MAX’S Glutamine+ can be taken before workouts to provide that extra source of energy to push beyond your normal limits, and after workouts to inhibit muscle catabolism and stimulate faster recovery for maximum anabolic growth.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in human skeletal muscle and is one of the most important amino acids for hard trainers. When you work out hard, your circulating Glutamine levels drop as your muscles and organs take up Glutamine for fuel and protection against stress. Your body responds by starting to catabolise or break down the muscle tissue you are training to restore system Glutamine levels. This breakdown can last for many hours, delaying recovery and inhibiting muscle re-building, which is the exact opposite of what you want.
You can stop this catabolic breakdown in its tracks by taking a quality Glutamine supplement. MAX’S Glutamine+ restores your body’s Glutamine balance to inhibit muscle catabolism and provide the right anabolic signals to promote muscle tissue repair and synthesis.
MAX’S Glutamine+ is a must for any serious trainer who trains hard and needs to optimise their recovery time between workouts. In summary:
- Glutamine prevents your muscle from being catabolized (broken down) in order to provide Glutamine for other cells in your body
- Along with other amino acids, Glutamine stimulates protein synthesis.
- Glutamine helps maintain cell volume and hydration, which helps optimise tissue healing and recovery.
- Glutamine supplementation prevents declining Glutamine levels during intense workouts to stimulate faster recovery and protein synthesis.
- Glutamine can help stimulate growth hormone levels. A study has shown as little as 2 grams of orally administered L-Glutamine increased growth hormones by over 400%.
- Glutamine supports optimal immune function. For bodybuilders, this is important since heavy workouts tend to greatly deplete Glutamine levels. (Glutamine is a primary energy source for your immune system.)
- Glutamine is one of the most important nutrients for your intestines. It has the ability to ‘repair a leaky gut’ by maintaining the structural integrity of the intestines.
Is Glutamine Safe?
Glutamine is a naturally occurring amino acid. It is present in almost all protein foods including meat, fish, chicken and dairy. It is well studied and extremely safe even in high doses.
How much Glutamine should I use?
For serious weight trainers we recommend 2 – 3 serves per day of approximately 5 gram (10 – 15 grams in total). One serve should be taken as soon as practical after weight training to stop muscle catabolism and maximise recovery. Another serve can be taken about an hour before training to boost energy, while the final serve can be taken before bed to assist with recovery while sleeping.
Can I mix Glutamine with other supplements?
Yes – Glutamine works very well when used in conjunction with Creatine and BCAA’s. You can also mix Glutamine with your protein shakes.
Can Glutamine affect my fat metabolism?
Studies show Glutamine supplementation actually prevents fat accumulation even with a higher fat diet. SO if you are training to increase muscle and reduce fat, Glutamine is a good choice.

How To Take Glutamine+
Take 1 Serving Post Workout.
Take 5 grams (1 scoop) about one hour before training to increase energy. Take 5 grams immediately after training to stop muscle breakdown and stimulate recovery. Take 5gm before bed to aid muscle recovery and growth while you sleep. Can be taken straight or mixed with a sports drink, juice or added to your protein shakes.
Who Should Take Glutamine+
MAX’S Glutamine+ is suitable for intermediate and advanced level trainers who want to maximise workout intensity and recovery after hard gym sessions or exercise bouts. For best results combine with MAX’S BCAA 10:1:1.
L-Glutamine A conditionally essential amino acid that is depleted during strenuous exercise. In the bodybuilding world, Glutamine is synonymous with recovery and immune function. L-Glutamine is quickly absorbed however is broken down quite quickly in the gut.
N-Acetyl L-Glutamine The acetylated version of Glutamine, and is more stable in water, making it a sustained release form of Glutamine that compliments faster absorbing L-Glutamine.
Taking an effective Glutamine supplement like MAX’S Glutamine+ after intense workouts stops muscle catabolism (tissue breakdown) and stimulates muscle anabolism (muscle synthesis). It also helps prevent the immune suppression associated with hard training which means you stay healthy. Glutamine also provides an effective fuel source for tiring muscles and helps keep you alert and focussed during hard workouts.
