L-Glutamine is a versatile amino acid. It is helpful in improving liver and brain function! L-Glutamine can be converted to glutamic acid, which is both a precursor to the important inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) and an excitatory neurotransmitter in its own right. It is also utilized in large quantities by the immune system for greater immune health.
Glutamine is the most abundant free form amino acid in muscle tissue. It plays a vital role in protein metabolism and muscle recovery. It's found in large amounts in the muscles and is readily available when needed for the synthesis of skeletal muscle proteins. Because this amino acid helps to build and maintain muscle, supplemental glutamine is useful for dieters and bodybuilders.
Research has shown that the body's glutamine levels may be reduced by as much as 50% following an intense workout. Therefore, taking glutamine supplementation plays a vital role in preventing the deterioration of muscles, while maintaining new muscle-building. Glutamine has also been proven to prevent the breakdown of muscles. *
