Prioritizing recovery is essential to your ability to continually train at a high level as well to realize the benefits of training.*

Glutamine is an amino acid widely recognized for its role in protein synthesis and as one of the most popular supplements to take when looking to improve recovery from exercise.*

The problem is that supplementing with regular L-Glutamine is usually gobbled up in the GI tract, meaning very little is transported into the bloodstream and thereby, does next to nothing for recovery.*

However, research indicates that when L-Glutamine is combined with L-alanine, glutamine uptake is enhanced.*

Primeval Labs Glutamine supplies 1.25g each of L-Glutamine and L-Alanine to support protein synthesis and exercise recovery.*

Primeval Labs Glutamine is unflavored and can be mixed into your post-workout protein shake or taken with your serving of EAA Max.


L-Glutamine (1.25g)

  • Glutamine is the most abundant and versatile amino acid in the body*
  • In fact, 80% of the bodys glutamine content is found in skeletal muscle*[1]
  • Glutamine plays a role in gluconeogenesis and immune function[1]*
  • The versatile amino acid can also be used as a source of energy, a substrate for nucleotide synthesis, and a modulator of intermediary metabolism of amino acids[1]*
  • It also promotes water uptake as well as increase in sodium ion (Na+) uptake and the release of potassium ions (K+), which increase the cell volume and hydration*
  • Strenuous exercise leads to a reduction in l-Glutamine[2]
  • Supplementation with free form L-Glutamine + L-alanine has been noted to increase plasma glutamine levels*[2]
  • Additional studies suggest that the combination of free form L-Glutamine + L-Alanine may improve the effects of resistance training in trained subjects*[3]
  • Beyond its role in protein synthesis, glutamine is also known to possess antioxidant and cytoprotective effects*[1]

L-Alanine (1.25g)

  • L-Alanine is an non-essential amino acid that plays a role in carbohydrate metabolism, and immune function*[4]
  • It also provides energy for the brain, CNS, and skeletal muscle systems*[4]
  • Supplementation with free form L-alanine has been shown to spare L-glutamine metabolism in the gut and improve uptake by other tissues*[5,6]
