Glutamine is the most abundant naturally occurring, non essential amino acid in the human body, and one of the few amino acids that can directly cross the blood–brain barrier. In the body, it is found circulating in the blood, as well as stored in the skeletal muscles.
L-GLUTAMINE is a “conditionally essential” amino acid and is the most abundant amino acid in muscles (60%). Glutamine is often depleted during/after exercise and overtraining. It is a “workhorse” amino acid with strong anti-catabolic action.
It’s used as a food supplement as it may :
- Helps in muscle tissue repair and recovery
- Helps in muscle’s protein metabolism
- Supports muscle glycogen replenishment following exhaustive exercise
- Improves intestinal water and electrolyte absorption
- Helps volumize muscle cells
Glutamine is also considered useful to anyone undergoing training for endurance sports such as long distance running or cycling, and can help to reduce the incidence of cramps caused through repetitive strain. Because Glutamine can help in this regard, it is also recommended for elderly people who suffer from cramps and regular muscle pain as a natural alternative to chemical pain killers.
Suggested Use: Dissolve 5gr in 150ml of water or juice. Drink once before and once after training.
