Plain Old Glutamine vs. Max Muscle’s GlutaMatrix

March 29, 2009

Glutamine is one of the most important amino acids created in your body.  Glutamine has been studied clinically for over 15 years showing extremely effective wound healing effects.  Glutamine is one of the only amino acids to pass the blood/brain barrier.  Glutamine’s cousin Glutamate is a key neurotransmitter.  Glutamine’s other cousin Glutamic acid is a precursor for another neurotransmitter GABA. GABA typically causes relaxing, anti-anxiety and anti-convulsive effects.  Metabolites of glutamine quench the neurotoxic gas Ammonia.  Ammonia effects neurotransmitter triggering of protein production.  Glutamine also acts as an anti-inflammatory in the treatment of autoimmune diseases and preserves the liver protective amino acid Glutathione.  Glutamine has a strong attraction to the gut.  A large amount of glutamine is needed to maintain gut heath.

Max Muscle’s GlutaMatrix contains several different versions of Glutamine.  Free form Glutamine discussed in the paragraph above.  N-acetyl-L-glutamine is a more stable version of glutamine.  Stability is a key component of an active delivery system.  Glutamine Ethyl Ester make sure a more rapid absorption of Glutamine gets to the damaged muscle cells.  GlutaMatrix delivers an acid stable form of glutamine to assure the glutamine does not get broken down by your stomach acid.

Max Muscle’s GlutaMatrix is designed for your muscle building and recovery needs.  GlutaMatrix contains the best forms of the most important muscle building amino acid available.  GlutaMatrix comes in an unflavored powder or capsules.


Max Muscle High 5 Protein Complex

May 14, 2008

Max Muscle’s High 5 Protein is the ideal blend of 5 different proteins.  High 5 is designed to break down at different times to give you better and more complete absorption of protein.  High 5 is a mixture of Whey Protein Concentrate, Soy Protein Concentrate, Egg White Albumen, Potassium Caseinate and Whey Protein Isolate.

The combination is designed to absorb between 1 – 4 hours.

Max Muscle has L-Glutamine added to High 5.  L-Glutamine plays a major role in protein synthesis.  Without enough glutamine your body won’t make enough muscle.  Glutamine can block cortisol-induced protein catabolism.

High 5 has 500 mg of Potassium per serving which is 5 times what you will normally find in any other supplement.  Potassium is a key electrolyte mineral that controls water balance and muscle contractions.

 High 5 allows continuing absorption of protein for up to 4 hours.  High 5 contains ingredients that improve recovery and reduce muscle soreness.  High 5 will help you get the gains you want while feeding your muscles for up to 4 hours.
