L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in the body. It is stored in the skeletal muscles and circulates in the blood. It plays an important role during the synthesizing of muscle protein, cell volumizing and anti-catabolism. Furthermore, L-Glutamine is the primary fuel of the immune system.
During intense training glutamine levels decrease significantly. This means you loose an important component in the prevention of muscle breakdown and maintenance of an optimally working immune system. Supplementing with L-Glutamine gives your body the boost it needs to take the hits, recover quicker and to stay healthy.
How much Glutamine should you take?
5grams about an hour before training and 5grams after training
