What is Glutamine
Glutamine, sometimes referred to as L-Glutamine, is the most abundant amino acid in our bodies. In most healthy individuals the concentration of glutamine in the blood is 3 times greater than all other amino acids. It is found in most of the body tissues with the most concentration levels in our muscles.
Benefits of Glutamine
• Prevention of muscle breakdown
• Increases growth hormone levels
• Aids in protein synthesis
• Decreases risk of overtraining
• Improves immune system functions
It's been proven that after intense exercise available glutamine in the body is reduced by as much as 50%. Therefore it is especially important to replenish your glutamine stores soon after a hard workout. The sooner you get your stores back up the less muscle-breakdown that will occur.
Dosage Recommendations and Side Affects.
People who are working out regularly - especially those lifting weights - can benefit greatly by taking 10 or more grams of L-glutamine per day. Many people like to take 5 grams right before working out and 5 grams right after. Also, some experts recommend taking 5-10 grams immediately before going to bed to help the body recover during sleep. There are no side effects associated with L-glutamine, because it is a nutrient naturally occurring in the body.
