NAG (N-Acetyl-L-Glutamine) is the acetylated version of L-Glutamine, which is the most abundant amino acid found in skeletal muscle tissue. NAG is more stable in water and metabolically efficient at delivering glutamine’s biological effects versus conventional glutamine or glutamine peptides. The efficacy of NAG appears to be even more pronounced for people on low-calorie diets — particularly low-carb diets, and the efficiency of the NAG form of L-Glutamine also means that it’s more easily metabolized, so you get more bang for your Glutamine buck.*
NAG can also play a significant role in increasing muscle cell volume, glycogen storage, and growth hormone production while simultaneously supporting the immune system. That’s a lot of good news because it means fuller muscles, increased energy, and improved overall health.
NAG is an extremely potent and versatile version of L-Glutamine that is a must-have for any serious athlete who isn’t willing to accept compromise.
