MUSCLE BUILDING L-GLUTAMINE

 

L-Glutamine

L-glutamine is semi-essential or conditional protein amino acid. L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and under normal circumstances the body can synthesize sufficient L-glutamine to meet its needs. However, when physiological demands are greater than normal, supplementation is required.

 

Benefits of L-Glutamine

L-glutamine supplementation is invaluable in situations of metabolic stress situations as trauma (including surgery), cancer, sepsis and burns due to its ability to maintain cell volume and hydration, speeding up healing. It also boosts the immune system.

 

Sources of L-glutamine

Most dietary L-glutamine comes from animal and plant proteins. Small amounts of free L-glutamine can be found in vegetable juices and fermented foods, such as miso and yogurt.

 

L-Glutamine in Muscle Building

During intense exercise, L-glutamine protects the body against acidosis by allowing the kidneys to excrete the additional acid load. It also protects the body against ammonia toxicity.

After intensely working out, glutamine levels in the body are reduced by as much as 50%. Post workout pain normally peaks around 48 hours after the session. Glutamine can prevent this soreness.

Glutamine can also serve as a precursor to the production of glycogen and helps in stabilizing energy levels

In summary, Glutamine can be used to prevent OTS, stimulate growth hormone secretion, help boost your immune system, or to replace sugar in your post-workout drink. Glutamine can increase glycogen storage by as much as 16% if consumed post workout.

 

How to Use Glutamine

Glutamine is a highly versatile supplement, so its usage depends upon what you are using it for and a number of lifestyle factors: body weight, activity level, lifestyle stress, overall health, and diet.

The typical intake of L-glutamine is 5 to 10 grams daily pre and post exercise, and at night immediately before going to bed.

Some recommendations are as high as .44 grams per lean pound of body weight.
