For periods of intense training, L-Glutamine supplements provide an alternative supply to your body's own manufacture, this helps prevent muscle breakdown and supports the immune system.
|Nut Allergy Safe:||Unknown|
L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, in a large part because it is needed a lot by the brain, intestines, kidneys, lungs and immune system and also because you can manufacture your own. It is actually termed a 'non-essential amino acid', but this can be misleading, because under times of high training stress, if you leave your body to produce its own supply, it will break down muscle tissue in order to make it available.
Logic dictates that this is not desirable when you are a training athlete. Therefore, supplementation with L-Glutamine immediately after exercise stops the body scavenging for an alternative supply and eating into your well-earned muscle. It also ensures that plenty of L-Glutamine is available to fuel the immune system. Numerous studies have considered the effects of L-Glutamine supplementation on immune function and although the findings are mixed, there appears to be enough evidence to support its worth. Couple the benefits of L-Glutaimine with HMB and it's clear that there are huge gains to be achieved by taking a supplement containing both of these.
