Glutamine is an amino acid. During intense training, your muscle L-Glutamine levels may drop sharply. This, in turn could potentially decrease strength, stamina and recovery. Research demonstrates that following a rigorous workout, it may take up to six days for L-Glutamine levels to return to normal without supplementation. Without adequate levels of L-Glutamine,
L-Glutamine also can potentially increase cell volumization. Volumized muscle cells appear larger, may get a better pump and could assist in protein synthesis. In fact, L-Glutamine may helps muscle cells to utilize both protein and carbohydrates. L-Glutamine also potentially acts as a powerful ammonia scavenger. Ammonia is a highly toxic substance to muscle cells.
Finally, L-Glutamine also may potentially increase the body's ability to secrete Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is believed to assist in metabolising body fat and helos to support new muscle tissue growth. Research suggests that the muscles can potentially benefit from a minium of 2 to 5 additional grams of L-Glutamine daily.
