What is L-Glutamine?
L-Glutamine, often refered to as just Glutamine, is one of twenty amino acids that make up proteins. It makes up 67% of our tissue and comprises 60% of the amino acids in the body and is the major metabolizer for others. Depletion of L-Glutamine can result from severe stress, intense workouts, injuries or trauma, and may lead to higher incidences immune dysfunction, intestinal problems, mental impairment, lethargy and loss of muscle mass.
Why supplementing with L-Glutamine is essential
Energy production - L-Glutamine helps in the metabolization of food into glucose that fuels our body. When glucose stores get low (hypoglycemia), L-Glutamine stores are synthesized by the liver for the formation more glucose. If L-Glutamine levels drop, then the body will start breaking down lean muscle tissue to get the fuel it needs to function and start the repair and recovery process.
Nutrient absorption and Waste Removal - L-Glutamine may play a significant role in retaining the permeability of intestinal tissues to increase nutrient absorption. It can also help in the neutralization and elimination of cramp and fatigue causing toxins and cleansing the liver of the waste products that can prevent fatty build-up.
Nitrogen Balance - Achieving a positive nitrogen balance indicates that your body has retained adequate protein stores to provide sufficient functional energy needed to maintain your metabolism. Since the amino acids derived from proteins are the only source of dietary nitrogen, it is important to consume and retain adequate amounts.. and L-Glutamine can contribute up to 30% of that nitrogen transported to cells. If your nitrogen levels fall below the balance point, you're are not retaining enough protein. At this point, your body will start to consume muscle tissue to stabilize your metabolism. This can contribute to lethargy, illness, and loss of mental focus.
Suggested use: Shake or mix 1 servng as needed into your favorite beverage until completely dissolved
My wife and I have used this product for 15 years and would not use any brand. I add to my oatmeal, with Whey Protein. We also use it drink after all our workouts. JBN keep doing it right.
I'm leaving two reviews today and this is my second cause it's such a fav item - vanilla L-glutamine. How come I'm using a product that's flavored? Why not be a grown-up and grimace when I take my glutamine? Cuz this tastes AMAZING, which = versatility, which = better quality of life. I can use it to flavor a smoothie, on rope of protein pancakes like powdered sugar, in recipes or in a glass of water. Enjoy you recovery.
This product has helped give me additional energy and enhances my immunity. My favorite part about this product is that I can have it anytime of the day and I can mix it with my other supplements.
