Supplement Rx | Glutamine

The most abundant amino acid found in muscle cells, L-Glutamine, is recognized as an important anticatabolic agent. Naturally released by the body during muscle stress, Glutamine protects muscle from destructive breakdown by inhibiting the glutamine synthetase enzyme and neutralizing the muscle breakdown induced by cortisol. By drawing water into the muscle cell, Glutamine acts as a cell-hydrating agent which increases muscle cell volume. As an added benefit, when the muscle cells are filled with water, the muscles look bigger. When cells are well-hydrated, they reduce the amount of protein breakdown and promote an increase in protein and glycogen synthesis in the skeletal muscle; thereby, increasing the building of new muscle tissue.

Key Points of Glutamine:

  • a conditionally essential amino acid released during muscle stress
  • protects muscle from destructive breakdown
  • contributes to muscle cell volume and hydration
  • increases the rate of protein synthesis by increasing hydration
  • serves as "muscle food" by donating carbon to help replenish glycogen
  • helps build proteins and repair muscle, as well as build up more muscle by donating nitrogen
  • promotes anabolic conditions in muscle cells
  • may increase plasma HGH levels by stimulating the anterior pituitary gland
  • increases glutathione (a powerful antioxidant defense for the body)
  • accelerates muscle recovery
  • may help recovery from illness, trauma, accident, surgery or wounds
  • increase mental function and energy
  • maintains and increases immunity
