L-Glutamine is important for the maintenance of optimal antioxidant status, building and maintenance of muscle tissue, maintenance of optimal immune function, and repair and maintenance of intestinal tissue.
Research indicates L-Glutamine may:
- Support healthy digestion
- Support healthy immune function
- Help build and maintain muscle
- Considered essential for proper brain function
- Support cellular growth and repair
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is a precursor to the neurotransmitters glutamic acid and gamma amino buryic acid (GABA). It can also serve as a precursor to the production of glycogen and helps in stabilizing energy levels. In clinical trials using glutomine, the subjects taking this amino acid showed improved brain electrical patterns when compared with controls.
Extensive double blind test have shown that L-Glutamine has the unique ability to boost growth hormone levels up to 430%. Growth hormone helps build and strengthen muscles and clear acid from body fluids, but starting at age 30, its production declines. This decline is associated with muscle loss (muscle breakdown is accelerated under acid conditions), increased body fat and accelerated aging. Glutamine supplements may help delay such developments.
