Glutamine protects muscle proteins from post-workout catabolism (breakdown of proteins) and supports the regeneration of muscle tissue. It supports the incorporation of amino acids into muscle proteins, stimulates the growth of new muscle mass, supports the increase of muscle glycogen stores and alleviates the state of exhaustion after exercise. Of all the amino acids in muscle, glutamine makes up to 60% and its consumption is up to 5 times higher during training.
L-glutamine is an amino acid that also has a strong effect on the immune system. Our body can create L-glutamine on its own, but it often happens, especially in active athletes, that the body's needs are greater than its production. A dose of glutamine of 5 g in the morning and 5 g in the evening can significantly affect the regeneration and especially the cells of the immune system. It should not be forgotten that active athletes have long-term reduced immunity. The result can be an increased susceptibility to viral diseases, especially during flu and epidemics.
One of the important roles of glutamine is the transfer of nitrogen between tissues. Nitrogen is a very important substance in the body, as it is essential for wound healing and about a third of the nitrogen in the body comes from the amino acid glutamine.
- L - glutamine - 100% pure amino acid without added substances. Glutamine together with BCAA is one of the most commonly used supplements to protect muscle mass and regeneration.
