MICRONISED L-GLUTAMINE100% Pure L-Glutamine for easier and faster mixing.L-Glutamine is an amino acid found in high levels in the body mainly in skeletal muscle. The functions of Glutamine in the body include acid-base balance nitrogen supply and protein synthesis. Glutamine is also the principal metabolic fuel for cells of the intestine and immune system so it plays a role in the maintenance of healthy gut function and immune health. Glutamine is commonly used to as an ergogenic aid for exercise performance enhancement. It is used to improve muscle function decrease fatigue and improve recovery in athletes participating in strenuous activity.
nAmino acids are classified as either essential or non-essential. Essential amino acids are those that can’t be synthesized by the body and therefore must be obtained in the diet. Non-Essential amino acids can be synthesized in the body. Glutamine is considered a non-essential amino acid as human cells can readily synthesise it. However under certain circumstances including overtraining bodily stores can be overwhelmed and intracellular glutamine levels can drop more than 50% and plasma concentrations fall by up to 20%. In these types of situations supplemental glutamine may be beneficial.
