Glutamine is a naturally occurring amino acid and one of the most abundant
amino acids in the body (comprising approximately 30% of amino acids in the
plasma). It is usually classified as a ?conditionally? essential amino acid as
it is produced by the body, but during periods of extreme stress or trauma it is
released from the body and may need to be replenished. Glutamine is naturally
found in beans, poultry, fish and dairy products. The majority of Glutamine is
produced in the skeletal muscle and adipose tissue, additionally; glutamine is
synthesized in the lungs, liver and brain. It is predominately used for fuel by
small intestines, immune system, hair follicles and the gastrointestinal tract.
"Glutamine supplementation is beneficial during periods of stress, such as after
Glutamine ensures the body remains in a state of anabolism. For those who train,
supplementing with glutamine ensures the body?s stores of this important amino
acid are optimized and skeletal muscle size is maintained. Working out can lead
to suppression of the immune system. Intense exercise can quickly deplete
glutamine in the muscle cells causing the immune system to weaken and decreases
the body?s levels of glutamine. Research has shown that supplementation with
glutamine can alleviate the decline of glutamine concentration in the
bloodstream following intense exercise.
"Glutamine may diminish catabolism."
Glutamine also helps to diminish catabolism caused by an increase in the stress
hormone cortisol; which is elevated during exercise. A recent study conducted on
glutamine?s effects on the muscle found that glutamine actually blocks the
action of cortisol?s interference with muscle protein synthesis and repair. This
study shows that glutamine can provide an anti-catabolic effect which is
beneficial for athletes and bodybuilders.
Glutamine supplementation has been found to help elevate glutamine levels in the
body and produce an anti-catabolic effect. It can minimize the amount of muscle
breakdown and can be particularly helpful when consumed after working out; when
catabolism is at its peak.
