Description

Glutamine Powder

Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid - meaning it can be produced by the body - and is involved in a variety of metabolic processes. Glutamine is more commonly referred to as a conditionally essential amino acid. This means that while the body can make glutamine, under extreme physical stress (such as strenuous exercise) the demand for glutamine exceeds the body's ability to synthesize it. At these times the body needs certain proteins and no matter which are needed, all can be made with the help of glutamine.

This is due to it possessing an extra nitrogen atom which can be readily used in the synthesis of other amino acids. Therefore at these times of stress, it is important to take a Glutamine supplement in order to minimise Glutamine being catabolised from muscle tissue. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, comprising 61% of the amino acid pool in skeletal muscle. Glutamine's unique structure, containing two nitrogen side chains, consists of 19% nitrogen - making it the primary transporter of nitrogen into the muscle cell. Glutamine is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. Of particular importance is its role in:- immune system function, maintenance of gastro-intestinal health, regulating levels of toxic ammonia in the body, maintaining acid/alkaline balance, increasing muscle protein synthesis and counteracting catabolic processes. Glutamine is also used as a fuel source - either directly as fuel for the brain or from its conversion to glucose.

Glutamine is found in many foods high in protein, such as fish, meat, beans, and dairy products. Although glutamine is very prevalent in diet, it is actually heat sensitive and therefore lost when foods are cooked.

The two most common forms of supplemental Glutamine are L-Glutamine and Glutamine peptides. There is currently no conclusive proof that one form is superior to the other.

L-glutamine is best taken on an empty stomach or with other free form amino acids. However free form L-glutamine is not moisture stable, so should be consumed immediately once mixed into a solution.
