Details: Health Within L-Glutamine is a precursor to glutathione which has antioxidant actions in the liver and is involved in phase II liver detoxification(1). It also nourishes intestinal cells thereby improving gastrointestinal immunity and allows acid (ammonia) removal via the kidneys (2).
Health Within Glutamine plays an important role in muscle recovery and growth. It is the primary transporter of nitrogen that ‘picks up and drops off’ nitrogen around the body for protein synthesis in the muscles. After an intense workout, glutamine stores become depleted.
Replenishing your muscles with glutamine helps prevent catabolism (muscle tissue breakdown). Moreover, glutamine may help stimulate protein synthesis within the muscles, thereby facilitating muscle growth. Glutamine may also improves the function of the digestive system encouraging the absorption of important nutrients.
Training and exercising can cause losses of L-Glutamine to occur from increased muscle protein synthesis. Human skeletal muscles consists of more than 50% Glutamine this makes it the bodies preferred amino acid used during sports.
Health Within L-Glutamine may contribute towards supporting individuals who participate in activities that require strength, speed and endurance, as it will help them increase or maintain muscle mass, especially during times of intense training.
L-Glutamine
Glutamine is a common amino acid that is found in many protein containing foods. It is important for a large number of bodily functions, an important example being the detoxification of ammonia. It is believed to be one of the most important nutrients for healing leaky gut syndrome because it is the preferred 'fuel' for the cells lining the mucosa of the small intestine (enterocytes). These cells have the ability to take up glutamine directly rather than waiting for it to be supplied through the blood. Glutamine is also required for the production of both intestinal mucus and Secretary Immunoglobulin Type A (SIgA). As a result of these functions, a generous supply of glutamine can assist in repair and maintain a healthy small intestinal lining.
L-Glutamine is important for metabolism enhancing the general health of the digestive system improving the immune system as well as helping to alleviate fatigue providing better recovery by decreasing muscle breakdown.
Other individuals can also benefit from glutamine supplementation because of its potential to help reduce muscle-tissue breakdown and support the immune system during periods of trauma or stress.
