Glutamine: The Most Important Amino Acid?

Glutamine is the most abundant non-essential amino acid in the body.

During intense training sessions, the immune system is put to the test because the body uses a large amount of glutamine.

Even though the body produces it on its own, it's possible to suffer from a glutamine deficiency. This can lead to a decrease in immune defenses and consequently, be more vulnerable to infections. It is then important to observe a minimum recovery period between sessions to allow the body to replenish its glutamine reserves.

Consuming glutamine through dietary supplements is a wise choice to reduce the risks of overtraining and prevent muscle mass breakdown.

The impact of glutamine on recovery will be more beneficial if taken with BCAAs (amino acids), optimizing the effect of the latter.

Here are some of the benefits of ProteinCo's Glutamine formula:

  • Acceleration of recovery;
  • Better digestion;
  • Strengthens the immune system;
  • Intensifies fat burning during and after exercise;
  • Increase in GH (growth hormone) levels;
  • Increase in leucine levels in muscle fiber.

Glutamine poses no risk to consumption and due to its multiple functions, recommended amounts may vary according to need (5 to 40 grams per day).

Note: In cases of inflammatory bowel diseases, regular use of glutamine would be prioritized.
