GLUTAMINE OVERVIEW - RECOVER QUICKER AND ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS FASTER

L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, and makes up more than 60% of the intramuscular amino acid pool. Often overlooked as a non essential amino acid, but our body's concentration of glutamine is markedly decreased during times of severe bodily stress, such as prolonged exercise! Thus Glutamine is one of the best anti-catabolic and recovery supplement around! May help:

  • Support protein synthesis
  • Prevent muscle breakdown
  • Support the rate of glycogen production
  • Proper function of the digestive system
  • Healthy immune function
  • Maintain the correct pH balance.

GLUTAMINE IN-DEPTH

L-Glutamine is the most circulated amino acid in the human body, and is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue. Since human body is capable of making glutamine on its own, it was originally labeled a non-essential amino acid. However under certain conditions we are unable to produce adequate amounts and thus most scientists now consider glutamine to be a conditionally essential amino acid. Researches suggest that that our body\'s concentration of glutamine is markedly decreased during times of severe bodily stress, such as during major surgery, burns, starvation, serious infections and even prolonged exercise.

Glutamine acts as a type of fuel for cells, especially for rapidly dividing cells such as enterocytes, colonocytes, lymphocytes and fibroblasts, serves as a fuel source for intestinal muscosal cells and nucleotide synthesis by lymphyctes. Glutamine is essential in the proper function of our digestive system, our immune system (our ability to fight infection) and our muscular system, to name a few.   Bodybuilders and other athletes can especially benefit from supplementing amino acids because they aid in repair, growth, and development of muscle tissue.


SUPPORTS PROTEIN SYNTHESIS

L-Glutamine supplementation supports protein synthesis and prevents muscle catabolism (breakdown). Administration of glutamine can prevents myostatin expression and glucocorticoids induced muscle protein degradation. Studies indicate that L-Glutamine supplementation may improve nitrogen balance, as well as assist in the prevention of protein synthesis decreases following surgery, intense mental and physical stress or during starvation.

 

SUPPORTS THE RATE OF GLYCOGEN PRODUCTION

L-Glutamine supplementation supports the rate of glycogen production by serving as a carbon donor. A particular study demonstrated that taking L-Glutamine after a workout stimulates glycogen synthesis as effective as taking a high dose of simple carbohydrates. The study showed that taking 8 grams of L-Glutamine after an intense workout was as equally effective as taking 60 grams of carbohydrates for restoring muscle glycogen.

 

INCREASES GH LEVELS

L-Glutamine has been proven an effective supplement in substantially raising plasma growth hormone levels. In a particular study, healthy men were given a two-gram serving of glutamine. After only 30 minutes plasma growth hormone increased up to 430%, and returned to normal within 90 minutes. The functions of growth hormone include accelerated protein synthesis, positive nitrogen balance and enhanced fat loss.

 

IMPROVES THE HEALTH OF THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

L-Glutamine is essential in the proper function of our digestive system. Glutamine acts as a premier fuel for enterocytes, and thus Glutamine is a key component in the maintenance of healthy intestinal mucosa. It is particularly helpful for IBS, Diverticulitis and Leaky Gut Syndrome. It is also a proven tool in helping to fight addictions to alcohol and sugar cravings.

 

IMPROVES IMMUNITY

L-Glutamine plays an important role in the function of our immune system. Many immune cells, such as lymphocytes and macrophages, use glutamine as an energy source and Glutamine is involved in the manufacture of some special amino acids, including glutathione, an important intracellular antioxidant. Intense long-duration exercise could lead to immune suppression through a decrease in the circulating level of glutamine. The decrease in plasma glutamine concentration as a consequence of intense long-duration exercise can be reversed, by supplementing with glutamine. A placebo-controlled study showed that supplementation with 5 grams of L-glutamine after training resulted in a significantly lower incidence of infections (19 %) compared to the placebo group (51 %). Another study, demonstrated that 81 % of athletes taking glutamine had no subsequent infection during the study period, compared to 49 % in the placebo group.

 

IMPROVES ACID-BASE BALANCE

L-Glutamine help the body maintain the correct pH balance. The body has an exquisite mechanism for maintaining pH homeostasis. If the pH of the blood is too acidic, more glutamine is directed to the kidneys, where a certain type of glutamine results in the release of bicarbonate ions to correct acidosis.
