MVP High Impact Glutamine (1000g)
HELPS PREVENT FATIGUE OVERTRAINING SYNDROME
ANTI CATABOLIC INCREASE PROTEIN ABSORBTION
GLUTAMINE! HARNESS THE POWER.
To most people, glutamine is just one of the 20 amino acids that are used to make protein. It’s not even considered to be an essential amino because the body is capable of making it. However, glutamine may be the single most important amino acid in the body for creating anabolic ( muscle building ) conditions in the muscle and protecting us from the ravages of overtraining.
When the human body is altered by factors such as stress or disease, its demands for extra glutamine can change drastically. One form of stress that occurs is when a person bodybuilds using heavy poundages and intense training. During this training the use of glutamine by the other organs of the body increases in response to bodily stress. Intense exercise also causes the production of lactic acid and ammonium by the muscles. As a result, the many tissues that need glutamine, but can’t produce it, are provided with ample supplies during the exercise induced stress. The problem is that the muscles are having their intracellular stores depleted in the process. Intense exercise also causes the release of catabolic hormones such as corticosteroids. These also contribute to the depletion of muscle glutamine stores by increasing the release of glutamine from muscle cells. The result is that muscles become severely glutamine depleted.
Glutamine - the Anabolic Stimulator
Glutamine is known to promote anabolic conditions in muscle cells and increase the rate of protein synthesis. It was long thought that glutamine was indirectly responsible for this anabolic state. It now seems that glutamine indirectly promotes growth by increasing the hydration state of muscle cells.
The amount of water in cells can change in a matter of minutes, going from being fully hydrated to a state of dehydration. It has been found that the amount of water inside a muscle cell can alter its metabolism, especially protein synthesis and turnover. When cells are swollen with water, this inhibits the breakdown of protein, glycogen and glucose and stimulates protein and glycogen synthesis. If a cell becomes dehydrated, it shrinks and goes into a catabolic state that breaks down the muscle’s vital proteins.
When glutamine levels are high in muscle cells, this stimulates the entry of other amino acids into the cell. Amino acids cannot directly enter the cell, but must be carried in by a special transport system. The unique thing about this system is that when it allows an amino acid to enter, it also allows sodium to enter. As the amino and sodium levels increase in the cell, this causes water to be absorbed across the membrane and the cell swells to an anabolic state. When glutamine levels are depleted during intense exercise the cells become dehydrated and enter a catabolic state.
When a person trains intensely they will start depleting their muscle glutamine stores before they have fully recovered from their previous workout. The result is that each day the amount of muscle glutamine gets a little lower. The more a person trains, the more glutamine they use and the greater the catabolic response. People suffering from overtraining are also more susceptible to disease and infection as a result of lowered immunity. This may be due to the role of glutamine as a primary source of fuel for the immune system.
Don’t forget the Glutamine
It makes sense to take a glutamine supplement that provides the free form of this amino prior to exercise. After exercise, a high quality protein supplement should be taken within 30 minutes to aid in recovery. As the aminos are transported into the cells, they will promote water uptake to keep the muscles hydrated. This hydrated state will prevent a catabolic state and promote anabolic growth. Therefore, keep in mind that glutamine is one of the most important aminos in the body and may be the most important amino acid supplement for the bodybuilder.

Why do I need to supplement with creatine?
Every athlete involved in any sport which requires frequent, short bursts of energy, would benefit from creatine supplementation, by replenishing ATP quicker. It is highly recommended for power lifting, weightlifting, football, soccer, bodybuilding, swimming, basketball, and hockey, just to mention a few!
Why should I choose “Next Level Creatine” over any other creatine in the market?
“Next Level Creatine” the purest Ultra-Micro-Molecule creatine available on the global market today. Some companies won’t hesitate to sell you cheap, low-grade creatine. We, on the other hand, have spared no expense in bringing you top quality creatine from Germany. MVP Labs absolutely guarantees you that you get the finest ingredients money can buy for maximum purity, freshness & quality.If you are in the search for the purest, NLC is the intelligent choice. We believe that you will see and feel the difference in no time.Creatine is bodybuilding's ultimate supplement, and for good reason. For one thing, creatine can significantly increase lean muscle mass in just two weeks. It is also responsible for improving performance in high-intensity exercise, increasing energy levels, and speeding up recovery rates. It's no wonder athletes who use it have such of an edge over those who do not. Soon nearly every athlete who competes will use it (if they don't already). Creatine's ability to enhance energy reserves in muscles comes from its muscle protein synthesizing action, while minimizing protein breakdown. This occurs because creatine has the awesome effect of super-hydrating muscle cells with water. It enhances muscles' growth too-making muscle fibers bigger and stronger.
Quite a few studies have been done on creatine to figure out why and how it works so well. There have been over twenty double blind (meaning neither the researchers nor the subjects knew who was getting what), placebo-controlled studies conducted on creatine in the past five years. They proved that creatine increased energy levels, resulting in increased strength, endurance levels, and recovery rates. Another unexpected benefit attributed to creatine was discovered as well: creatine accelerates fat loss, while building lean body mass!
How much weight will I gain?
Weight gain varies between individuals; it could range between 5-12 lbs. within six weeks! Several studies have shown that short distance runners actually have increased their lean body mass while supplementing creatine. The size of increase in body mass is still being researched, but many of the conclusions lead scientists to believe that the gain is due to cell volumization (osmosis). Cell volumization happens when the muscle cells are fluid ‘overloaded’ whereby mor nutrients are transported into the cell. This forces the athlete to work harder during an extended workout session. The athlete can therefore build more lean muscle mass.
Will“Next Level Creatine” help me lose the fat?Creatine indirectly contributes to fat loss. Studies have shown that physical exercise is an essential factor for improving your metabolic rate. Without exercise and physical activity, fat loss will not happen. For example, when a man or woman diets without strength training, 25-30% of the weight loss isn't body fat at all, instead they lose water, muscle, bone and other important lean tissue. Preserving lean tissue is important for health reasons, metabolic reasons and strength reasons. In order to benefit from your creatine supplementation, you will need to incorporate a systematic resistance training routine, which will increase your lean muscle mass along with your metabolic rate. This is where creatine supplementation can help accelerate your muscle’s replenishment of the depleting ATP, by carrying more phosphates to your muscles, which have accumulated ADP following your muscle contracting. These phosphates attach to your muscles accumulated ADP making it an ATP molecule. The resulting surplus of ATP will allow you to lift longer and heavier by feeding your contracting muscles with energy. Subsequently, the longer and more intense you exercise, the more calories you will burn. This will definitely make you lose fat, consequently, increasing your confidence and self-esteem.

Improve Muscle Endurance and Strength*
MVP's Pure 100% BCAA 5000 Powder provides a 5000 mg blend of the three Branched Chain Amino Acids (L-Valine, L-Leucine and L-Isoleucine) per serving. The Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAS), named because of their unique branched chemical structure. They are essential as the body cannot produce them from other compounds. In recent times, these amino acids have been investigated for their potential anticatabolic (preventing muscle breakdown) and anabolic (muscle building) effects.(1)
Other studies have shown that BCAAS increases nitrogen retention, protein synthesis, and muscle tissue recuperation. They are accountable for up to 90% of the total amino acid uptake by the muscles.(2) The three BCAAS are combined in balanced proportions to ensure maximum absorption into the body. BCAA is ideal for individuals who want maximum muscle tissue growth and repair.(3) *
What do they do? - Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAS) include leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAAS are needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue; they are also needed during times of physical stress and intense exercise. Research shows that BCAA supplements helps those with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Garrit’s Disease) maintain muscle strength. (1) In addition, individuals with liver disease (hepatic encephalopathy) benefits from intravenous administration of BCAAS. (2)
Where are they found? - Dairy and red meat contain the greatest amount of BCAAS. They are present in all protein—containing foods. Whey protein and egg protein supplements are other sources of BCAAS. BCAA supplements provides the single amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
Under what conditions might BCAAS be supportive?
• Athletic support
• Post-surgery recovery
Who is likely to be deficient? - Periods of physical stress, such as intense weight lifting and long—distance running, can create a catabolic state in which muscle tissue is broken down. In these situations, supplemental BCAAS—particularly leucine and its derivatives ketoisocaproate (KIC) and hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB)—can be beneficial in reducing protein breakdown. Nonetheless, BCAA supplements may reduce muscle loss and speed muscle gain. BCAAS may also be useful to anyone wanting to prevent muscle breakdown.
How much should I take? - A diet including animal protein provides an adequate amount of BCAA for most people. Athletes involved in intense training often take 5 grams of leucine, 4 grams of valine, and 2 grams of isoleucine per day to prevent muscle loss and increase muscle gain.
Are there any side effects or interactions? – To Date, side effects have not been reported with the use of BCAAS. A high intake of BCAAS are simply converted into other amino acids or used as energy.
