Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found naturally in the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Glutamine is used in the body in so many way! Glutamine is important for transporting nitrogen and carbon to different cells in the body and is needed to make other chemicals in the body such as glucose and other amino acids. White blood cells use Glutamine so L-Glutamine supplements support the immune system***.
Glutamine is primarily produced in the skeletal muscles and then distributed by the blood to the various organs such as the kidneys, liver and even the small intestines. Under normal conditions the body produces enough Glutamine. However, there are times that certain physical conditions require more Glutamine than the body naturally produces. If the body uses more Glutamine than the muscles can produce then the muscles become catabolized, or eaten up, so that Glutamine can be sent to other cells in the body. Therefore, L-Glutamine supplements can help with glutamine deficiency***.
Glutamine is essential for many homeostatic functions including body fluid, pH balance, regulation of body temperature and even heart rate. Surgery and traumatic injuries are physical conditions that require more Glutamine than the body naturally produces. When people have surgery or traumatic injuries the body needs and uses nitrogen to repair the wounds and keep the organs functioning. The body sources about one third of its nitrogen from Glutamine. Therefore, L-Glutamine supplements can benefit the general well being of people who have suffered traumatic injuries.***
Glutamine is a popular amino acid for body builders and athletes. It can be beneficial for exercise and post-exercise support.***
Glutamine is one of the main sources of your metabolism. It restores protein in the skeletal muscles. It is the densest in our muscle tissue often making up more than half of the free amino acid pool in the skeletal muscle & more than 20% of the plasma amino acid pool. Intense workouts and periods of exercise creates another physical condition that requires more Glutamine than the body naturally produces. Athletes subject their body to high levels of physical stress during their workouts. During workouts, the muscles can quickly become depleted of Glutamine. Low levels of Glutamine slow down muscle recovery, limits your strength levels during each workout and can even cause athletes to be more susceptible to illness. Therefore, Glutamine supplements can help replenish Glutamine levels during intense workouts to reduce the risk of these issues faced by athletes***.
Glutamine is an important nutrient for the intestines! It is basically a fuel source for tissues such as the small intestine, the immune system and hair follicles. The GI tract uses 40% of the total Glutamine utilized by the body! Therefore, L-Glutamine supplements are beneficial for normal colon and intestinal health.*** When taking to support normal colon and intestinal health, Glutamine works best when taken with Acidophilus & FOS (Fructo Oligo Saccharides).***
Suggested Use: Take 2 - 4 tablets per day
Glutamine should be taken with cold or room temperature foods. It should not be taken with hot beverages because heat breaks down the L-Glutamine supplement.
