Glutamine is the most abundant and versatile non-essential amino acid in the body, promoting cell survival, maintenance, and division. Cells provide structure for our bodies, perform specialized functions, and take in nutrients from food and convert it into energy. Glutamine can be thought of as the fuel that boosts our immune systems and improves performance outcome.
As we exercise, stress is placed on muscles and the metabolites in our body increase. Supplementation of Glutamine is needed during prolonged metabolic stress (long and intense exercise sessions) and helps to reduce excessive inflammation that an intense form of exercise might produce.
Glutamine also improves the health of the digestive system by strengthening the intestinal wall. Leaky Gut is a syndrome that results from a loose intestinal wall, the gut becomes more permeable, and this can allow more bacteria and toxins to pass into the bloodstream.
Glutamine could possibly aid in allergies for young children. Additionally, it presents anti-oxidative properties and has proven to be beneficial in reducing waist circumference and blood sugar levels.
