Description

People use L-Glutamine for a variety of purposes including muscle building and gastrointestinal support.**

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which play a role in normal growth and development. Glutamine is the most abundant free form amino acid in blood and skeletal muscle. It can serve as an energy precursor and is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. Hard training can decrease glutamine levels, which is why it is a popular supplement for bodybuilders and athletes everywhere.

    Tip: If supplementing with L-Glutamine for muscle gains, it is best to take it after a workout when your glutamine levels are at their lowest.

    FAQS

    Q: What does L-Glutamine do in the body?
    A: Glutamine is a conditionally non-essential amino acid that aids cellular division, helps the body to remove waste, and, in cases where low levels of glutamine are present, supplementation may help in healing, recovery, and endurance. Typically, the body can create enough l-glutamine naturally or through diet. There are certain instances where glutamine levels are low, that’s why supplementing is conditional. When glutamine aids cellular division, it aids the creation of immune system related fighter cells. When you’re sick, your body needs an abundance of them! Stress from exercise or physical activity also depletes your body of glutamine. Increasing glutamine levels gives your body more fuel to run on, allowing greater endurance. Similar to the physical stress of exercise, the stress put on the body during injury or trauma impacts glutamine levels. Supplementing with additional glutamine allows the body to complete the processes necessary for healing and recovery.

    Q: Does L-Glutamine heal “leaky gut”?
    A: L-Glutamine may help “leaky gut” because it is thought to help uphold the integrity of the intestinal walls, thereby supporting a healthy gastrointestinal system. Its role in the growth of immune system boosting cells also plays a role in the intestines, with a better immune system there are less chances of infection by invading bacteria.

    Q: How much L-Glutamine should I take daily?
    A: Most people take 5g (5000mg) daily of L-Glutamine. It is easier to take larger amounts of L-Glutamine through a powder supplement rather than taking many pills. Since L-Glutamine is found in many protein sources and the body produces it naturally, there is little concern for supplementation.
