Product Review: Glutamine Chewies!!

No matter where you are or what time it is, from the moment you bite into CHEWIES Glutamine, 4000 mg of "addictively-sweet", laboratory-certified Glutamine will begin to permeate and penetrate your body. Inevitably it arrives at the doorways of even the innermost muscle fibers where its full gamut of pro-protein, pro-glycogen, pro-hydration, pro-recovery, pro-immunity, pro-etc properties can do their bodybuilding thing.* Every time is different because as CHEWIES Glutamine help shape your body, your body shapes CHEWIES Glutamine.

Don't say you weren't warned. Betancourt Nutrition cannot be held responsible for any "addictions" arising from the routine use of CHEWIES Glutamine. Granted, "addicted" is a strong word. However, the fact of the matter is that Betancourt's food scientists are as obsessed with good taste as your heart is with pumping blood. They have styled their proprietary and entirely one-of-a-kind chewable flavor systems with such relentless devotion that elite athletes take poetic license in describing them as "addictively sweet". We're not prepared to argue with them.

CHEWIES Glutamine

•4000 mg of lab-certified Glutamine per serving, equivalent to ~4 g of protein How long does it take for CHEWIES Glutamine to take action in your body? How long does it normally take you to put a piece of candy in your mouth?

•Zero sodium: promotes muscle hardening: Many bodybuilding supplements are high in sodium. Too much sodium can cause water to "leak" out of your muscle cells, making them shrink (atrophy) and promoting catabolism. This is precisely the opposite of building muscle. When the water leaves your muscle cells, moreover, it can accumulate in the inter-cellular space (i.e. the space in between cells). This can have the effect of making your muscles look "smooth" or "bloated". In other words, you lose muscle definition and hardness. CHEWIES Glutamine contains no sodium at all, so you don't have to worry about this kind of un-cool stuff happening.

•Supports muscle glycogen and protein synthesis and thermogenesis (fat-burning) Glutamine can be converted into glucose (blood sugar). This is known as gluconeogenesis. Think of gluconeogenesis like you would the engine of your car. Your car needs gas to run. What makes gluconeogenesis run? Fat. The energy provided by the burning of fat stimulates gluconeogenesis. Some of the energy is lost as heat. (No engine is perfect.) That's why we can say that CHEWIES Glutamine supports thermogenesis and fat-burning.

•Supports recovery and mass and strength gains: Why do you lift weights? To build muscle. How does your body build muscle? It has to synthesize more muscle protein. Since glutamine supports protein synthesis, CHEWIES Glutamine can be said to support gains in muscle mass and strength.* Remember, too, that after your workout your muscles need to replenish their glycogen stores, which exercise reduces the levels of. As noted above, glutamine supports glycogen re-synthesis.
