Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in the human body.
61% if not more, of the amino acids found in muscle tissue is glutamine. It is during intense training sessions and stress, that glutamine levels are rapidly depleted in the body. It has been shown that it can take up to six days for Glutamine levels to return to normal after only one intense exercise session. Since glutamine plays a key role in protein synthesis (muscle-growth), depletion can cause a breakdown of muscle tissue, in turn lead to decreases in strength, stamina and recovery.
Glutamine is also utilized well, for stomach and gastrointestinal problems, often supplemented for chronic IBS, and ulcerative colitis, it is a healing amino acid, metabolized well in the stomach. Glutamine supports neurological functions, and many people take glutamine to enhance brain function.
Glutamine supports two of the brain's most important neurotransmitters: glutamic acid and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Glutamine is also believed to remove metabolic residue in the brain, thus acting as detox support and improving brain function.
Supplementing with glutamine is essential in training, as it is the most essential amino acid required by the body. Glutamine allows you to make measurable gains in strength, muscularity, recovery and supports immune function. Taking glutamine before and after exercise will increase performance and delay fatigue. Additionally, supplementing with glutamine will provide a boost to your immune system and reduce stress.
