L-Glutamine can be converted to glutamic acid, which is both a precursor to the important inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) and an excitatory neurotransmitter in its own right. Athletes on high-protein diets will appreciate the fact that glutamine transports ammonia, the toxic metabolic by-product of protein breakdown, to the liver. There it is converted into less toxic urea and then excreted by the kidneys. Finally, glutamine can convert into alanine, an amino acid that the liver converts into glucose, supplying additional fuel to muscles during a prolonged workout.
Protects Muscle Tissue and Supports Immune Function! Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is involved in many metabolic processes. Skeletal muscles are the primary sites of glutamine concentration. There is an increased demand for glutamine during stress associated with exercise, illness or trauma. Glutamine supplementation supports protein synthesis as well as the rate of glycogen production by serving as a carbon donor. Glutamine also serves as a fuel source for intestinal muscosal cells and nucleotide synthesis by lymphyctes. For years athletes and bodybuilders have been looking for a product to help them recover faster from workouts and competition, keep their muscles well hydrated for maximum growth and provide numerous other benefits in the muscle building process. In recent years most athletes have come to understand the benefits of L-Glutamine. Now further research into this topic reveals, the benefit may be greater than we had first thought. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, and makes up more than 60% of the intramuscular amino acid pool. L-Glutamine plays an important role in many body functions such as proper immune system function, the transfer of nitrogen between organs, precursor to DNA, and regulation of protein synthesis and degradation. L-Glutamine is vital in treating alcoholism, sugar cravings, epilepsy, mental disorders, maintaining blood sugar levels, enhancing gut immune function, bodybuilding, endurance, fat metabolism, regulating carbohydrate and protein, preventing lactic acid build up, brain and nerve functions, GI tract integrity, joint, and soft tissue maintenance. Following an intense workout your body needs to replenish glutamine stores to aid in recovery, L-Glutamine can help increase muscle cell hydration and aid in protein synthesis. These and more functions of L-Glutamine can benefit athletes and bodybuilders by improving recovery and performance. Ideal uses of L-Glutamine include:
  • L-Glutamine Increase muscle cell volume
  • L-Glutamine Boost immune system function
  • L-Glutamine Increase muscle protein synthesis
  • Two thirds of the free form amino acids inside your muscle are comprised of L-glutamine. L-Glutamine may help to improve muscle recovery, and assist in recovery from catabolic conditions.
