Life Extension L-Glutamine Can Increase Strength, Endurance and Recovery
Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid which helps to generate energy and increase strength, improve recovery times, and increase endurance during physical activity. Blood ammonia levels increase during increased physical activity and has been proposed as a cause for both peripheral and central fatigue. In scientific trials, supplementing with glutamine drastically reduced the accumulation of blood ammonia which occurs during prolonged, strenuous exercise in high-level athletes. As an immune booster, glutamine supplementation may help to prevent the negative effects of strenuous exercise on the function of your immune system. Additionally, glutamine supplementation has shown to have a protective effect in the DNA fragmentation, mitochondrial membrane depolarization and apoptosis, and in regulation of the inflammatory process and immune suppression, which can be caused by a single workout. Glutamine also plays a vital role in regulating the stomach. As a gut-trophic factor, glutamine improves intestinal function, allowing better absorption of nutrients.
L-glutamine can be helpful to someone challenged with muscle loss or determined to help maintain optimal immune function while under heavy stress.
