What is Glutamine?
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in your body. Glutamine aids in metabolizing body fat and supports muscle growth. During intense training, Glutamine levels become depleted. This decreases your strength, stamina, and recovery. It can take up to 6 days before your body can reproduce adequate amounts of Glutamine. This is why supplementation is so important!
So how does Glutamine help with weight loss? When you are overweight, your body needs more glutamine than normal. If it doesn’t have enough glutamine in the system, the body breaks down the muscle tissue to get the extra amino acid. This is when you start to lose muscle mass. Losing muscle mass slows your metabolism. By having enough glutamine in your system, you can lose weight and maintain muscle mass. Plus, glutamine shows great promise for dieters, diabetics, and anyone trying to lose weight or battle the fluctuating blood sugar levels that lead to carbohydrate cravings.
Glutamine is commonly marketed to body builders because it has been shown to enhance muscle recovery, display anti-catabolic behavior, increase protein synthesis, and muscle hydration. It is a vitally important supplement that should be used by every training athlete.
Other benefits of glutamine supplementation include…
- It promotes gastrointestinal health.
- Speeds up the healing of wounds, and is of great use as a “surgical recovery” supplement.
- Boosts the immune system.
- Protects your liver from damaging effects of chemotherapy.
- Curbs the desire to consume alcohol.
- Is a building block of several important neurotransmitters supplementation may contribute to enhanced brain function.
