L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and plays an important role in muscle recovery and muscle protein development. During periods of intense exercise, L-Glutamine levels can be depleted, which may limit protein synthesis. The body can lose up to 50% of its glutamine levels during training. If your immune system, or other parts of your body, become glutamine-deficient, then the glutamine stores in your muscles will be depleted first, creating the risk for catabolism.
By ensuring we constantly replenish these valuable glutamine stores, we greatly improve muscle recovery and immune function. If you’re working hard in the gym your body requires sufficient recovery specific amino acids, like glutamine, to optimize each workout and reduce recovery time. Each time you lift weight, a large amount of stress is placed on the body. Unless something is done to help your body recover during training, fatigue will always hamper your progress.
