The science: L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and plays a significant role in muscle recovery. Many endurance and strength athletes often suffer from muscle fatigue which cannot only hinder optimum performance but delay recovery too.
Beat the bonk with L-glutamine
L-Glutamine has been unveiled as the ‘everyman’ supplement, holding a use for all athletes and weekend warriors. L- Glutamine is quite common in everyday foods, and our body holds onto stores of it already, so you’re not taking in some un-natural substance, in fact you had it in you all along. The benefits of L Glutamine are similar to other amino acids, in that they offer a ‘reserve supply’ effect, allowing you to carry on stronger for longer, without depleting levels.
But how does this relate to cycling?
Well, put simply, if you’re on a long endurance ride, you’ll be whittling down your body’s supplies of glutamine, which can leave you vulnerable and weak; we might be talking very slightly here, but that’s what cycling’s all about at elite level: marginal gains. A study published in the journal of “Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise,” showed the depletion of glutamine stores in the body of endurance cyclists is related to suppression of the immune system. Cyclists who supplement with glutamine can boost their immune system to help prevent illness. Glutamine helps in the healing and building of the muscles used during cycling. Without glutamine, these muscles would take longer to repair after each hard ride. So if you’re always topped up, you’ve got a little less chance of being weak on the bike and hitting the proverbial wall! Beat the bonk.
The more you push your body, the more it requires to recover, and supplementing with Bio-Synergy L-glutamine can be an effective supplement to speed up muscle recovery.
