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 widely used supplements amongst gym-goers and athletes. Its popularity stems from the fact that it is the most abundant amino acid found in muscle tissue – highlighting its importance when it comes to repairing and building muscle tissue.
Glutamine is a semi-essential amino acid, so although the body can manufacture its own Glutamine stores, it is insufficient to meet the body's needs. As such, a dietary source is required – particularly for hard training individuals who deplete Glutamine stores faster than non-trainers.
Glutamine has long been used by bodybuilders, powerlifters and athletes due to its impressive array of benefits. Amongst other things, it has been shown to prevent muscle wastage (catabolism) and reduce recovery times after intense exercise. These two benefits alone show why it is so popular.
Glutamine has also been shown to strengthen immune function. This is important for athletes, but also the non-training population. It is also for this reason that Glutamine is often prescribed to patients on hospitals – to speed recovery but also prevent muscle loss whilst patients are bed ridden.
Endurance athletes can also benefit from Glutamine supplementation as it has been shown to improve muscle glycogen replenishment.
Where to find Glutamine?
Glutamine is a naturally occuring amino acid and high levels are found in meat and fish. High quality protein powders such as Pure Whey Protein™ & INFORMED WHEY™ are also rich in Glutamine.
As with all Pure Series™ products, this product is sourced directly from a BULK POWDERS™ approved supplier. All our suppliers are rigorously audited to ensure that they meet our high standards and we routinely test products as part of our internal quality control procedures. We only work with a small number of select suppliers, the majority of whom we have partnered with since the launch of BULK POWDERS™ in 2005. In addition, all Pure Series™ products are packed in our very own, state of the art production facility, that is operated to standards above and beyond our competition. This all combines to ensure that we deliver only the highest quality products to you, but, as always, at the lowest prices in the UK.

Combining Glutamine with a fast-acting carbohydrate such as Waxy Maize Starch may help shuttle Glutamine to the muscle cells faster. This is ideal for after exercise when your muscles are craving amino acids.
