L-Glutamine (protein amino acid) is found in proteins of all life forms and is the most abundant and most important amino acid in muscle cells. It is a great anti-catabolic agent, which means it protects the muscles from the catabolic activities of the hormone called Cortisol. Also, it is a major contributor of muscle cell volume and has immune system enhancing properties. L-Glutamine is also fuel for two neurotransmitters in the brain: glutamic acid and gamma-aminobutyric acid. There is evidence it may help improve mental clarity, focus, mood and memory as well as being an ant-aging agent. During intense training, L-Glutamine levels are greatly depleted in the body, which decreases strength, stamina and recovery. It can take up to six days for Glutamine levels to be returned to normal and Glutamine plays a key role in protein synthesis. Studies have shown that Simply put, if you work out, you need more of this Amino Acid than a sedentary individual. Supplementing with this one natural occurring Amino Acid will positively affect your performance goals.
