The amino acid L-Glutamine is the most metabolized amino acid in the body. About 60% of the amino acids in our muscle mass are L-Glutamine. During hard training, levels in the body decrease drastically and in case of deficiency, the body is put in a catabolic state.
For hard exercise, an intake of 10-20grams of L-Glutamine per day is recommended to meet the body’s needs. Athletes have reported that an increased intake of the amino acid L-Glutamine helps them avoid colds.
Supplementation of Glutamine has been shown to improve the function of the intestinal mucosa and thus contributes to the stabilization of the immune system. Today there are over 100 studies and scientific publications that support positive effects from the use of the amino acid Glutamine.
