What Is L-Glutamine?

L-Glutamine is a popular amino acid found in meats, dairy products and beans. It is one of 20 non-essential amino acids. This means the body can produce Glutamine by itself. 60% of our glutamine is located in our skeletal muscle while the remaining is located in the liver, lung, stomach tissue and brain.

What Are The Benefits Of L-Glutamine?

After intense exercise, glutamine levels in the body can be decrease by almost 50%. Glutamine plays a vital role in protein metabolism, thus it is an important nutrient for anybody looking to build or maintain muscle. Glutamine can help decrease muscle catabolism post-workout. Glutamine encourages nutrient assimilation, controls protein synthesis, enhances growth-hormone production and improves the immune system. Glutamine supplementation ensures the body does not detract glutamine from the muscles post-workout.
