Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's) and Glutamine both aid in muscle repair and growth. This delicious slushy treat take seconds to make and can be consumed before, during or after your workout. Blend, sip and let the gains begin ;)
Glutamine is one of my favorite supplements due to its incredible qualities:
"Glutamine has been linked to protein synthesis. It prevents your muscle from being catabolized (eaten up) in order to provide Glutamine for other cells in the body.
Glutamine helps maintain cell volume and hydration, speeding up wound and burn healing and recovery.
Glutamine benefits you by replenishing declining Glutamine levels during intense workouts.
Research has shown Glutamine can help you produce growth hormone levels. A study has shown 2 grams of L-Glutamine increased growth hormones by over 400%.
Glutamine may serve to boost your immune system. For bodybuilders, this is important since heavy workouts tend to greatly deplete Glutamine levels. (Glutamine is a primary energy source for your immune system.)
Glutamine is one of the most important nutrients for your intestines. It has the ability to 'repair a leaky gut' by maintaining the structural integrity of the bowels.
Bet you didn't know this: It can even cure ulcers! Studies have found that 1.6 grams of Glutamine a day had a 92% cure rate in 4 weeks." -Bodybuilding.com
I recommend a minimum of 5g glutamine and 5g BCAA's before or after training to get the most out of your training and fat burning goals!
1 scoop (5g) of Glutamine (I used PVL Essentials)
1 scoop of BCAA's (I used AMTRAP Blue Freeze)
1 cup ice
2 cups cold water
Add all ingredients to a blender (I used Vitamix) and blend until you achieve a slushy consistency. Drink and enjoy!
