Naked Glutamine is formulated to “improve protein metabolism” and “minimize muscle breakdown”. It is made by Naked Nutrition.
The product features just one ingredient: L-glutamine (5g) – a conditionally essential amino acid.
Under normal circumstances, the body is thought to generate enough L-glutamine. However, the body’s glutamine stores may become depleted during exercise – an issue said to reduce protein synthesis. For this reason, the manufacturer states that glutamine supplementation could help prevent muscle breakdown.
The amino acid has also been investigated for its potential to reduce fat mass, increase strength and boost the immune system.
Naked Glutamine is certified vegan. It is also free from GMO, gluten and soy.
