What is L-Glutamine used for?
Glutamine is a vital amino acid that is required by every muscle in the body, and is one of the most important building blocks in forming the proteins that maintain cellular health and tissue repair. Glutamine is found in varying amounts in most meat and fish as well as, to a small extent, in vegetables and pulses. Anyone involved in high intensity training programmes designed for hypertrophy, may find Glutamine a beneficial supplement.
L-Glutamine an be a very effective supplement for bodybuilders. is the most abundant amino acid within muscle tissue, however when you train, levels can be significantly reduced as muscle tissue breaks down – even more so with the bodybuilding style of training. Supplementing with (in particular post-workout) can allow you to restore the depleted levels.
How does L-Glutamine work?
Of all the free amino acids in the human body glutamine is the most abundant. Glutamine is naturally produced within the muscles and then distributed via the blood stream to the organs which need it. Glutamine could help gut function and the immune system amongst other processes in the body and is thought to be helpful in times of stress. It also plays a vital part in providing fuel in the forms of carbon and nitrogen to cells through out the body and is needed to produce other chemicals such as glucose.
After a traumatic injury of surgery nitrogen is essential to both repair wounds and keep organs functioning, one third of this nitrogen comes from glutamine. If your body uses up more glutamine that you muscles can make, in times of stress for example, you can suffer muscle wasting. Taking a glutamine supplement can keep this supply topped up.
When Glutamine is present in sufficient amounts there is an increase in the production of growth hormones. These growth hormones are needed to help increase lean muscle mass, which would be of benefit to body builders.
