- Glutamine peptides (maximum assimilation)
- Enhances muscle growth
- Avoid catabolism and, thus, muscle mas loss
- Reduces muscle fatigue and enhances recovery
- Boosts strength and endurance
- Improves intestinal and digestive functions
- Enhances the immune system and reduces convalescence periods
What are Glutamine Peptides?
Glutamine peptides by HSN Raw Series is a food supplement based on glutamine peptides. A peptide is two or more amino acids bound together by a peptide bond. This molecular structure of glutamine, supplies it with a higher bioavailability value, making it much more stable, reason for which it is assimilated more quickly and efficiently.
Benefits of Glutamine Peptides
Its main benefits correspond to those provided by glutamine, which is an abundant amino-acid in muscle tissue and blood plasma that is essential for many metabolic functions.
It has a very important role in the prevention of muscle protein degradation and catabolism. It is directly involved in protein synthesis and replenishes muscle glycogen stores, which accelerates muscle recovery processes.
Glutamine is also essential for the proper functioning of the immune system and for the moments of great physical and mental strain that may cause health problems. It is also highly recommended in convalescence and to improve the well being of many people suffering traumatic injuries.
It is also highly recommended in convalescence processes and to improve the well-being of people with traumatic injuries.
Difference between Glutamine and Glutamine Peptides
The main difference is that Glutamine is in the 'free form' of the amino acid, which means that is not bound to any other molecule and thus will be less stable. On the other hand, the peptides are glutamine molecules linked to other amino acids to increase the stability and absorption once they are ingested. Due to this high bioavailability, the body can turn to use this glutamine much faster in this format.
How to Take Glutamine Peptides?
Glutamine peptides are absorbed much faster than other forms of glutamine, so they are a great supplement to take in two ways:
- During exercise, along with carbohydrates. In the following study we can see the possible benefits on performance by combining glutamine and carbohydrates.
- After exercise, along with the post-workout shake, to promote better recovery and increased body growth.
Thanks to its neutral flavour, it can be added to protein shakes or other preparations without altering their taste.
Who can take Glutamine Peptides?
It is the ideal supplement to complete the diet of any athlete who carries out activities with a high muscular effort.
Athletes or Sportspeople who are preparing for competitions, carrying out very demanding training, or who need to reduce their fat percentage to qualify for a certain category, without losing their ability to recover.
