L-Glutamine

What are we looking at?

L-Glutamine is an amino acid commonly found in muscle. In fact, over 61% of skeletal muscle is comprised of glutamine! Its role in the body is extremely important as it plays a part in protein metabolism, nutrient absorption, gut and intestinal health. It is also beneficial for immune support. What doesn’t this stuff do?!

Due to its high nitrogen content glutamine is a key transporter for nitrogen into muscle cells. In regards to gut health, it presents itself as one of the most important nutrients for your intestines. It can be used to maintain intestinal and bowl integrity and has been reported as a repair for leaky gut syndrome!

For those exercising hard, we put our bodies under stress on the daily and maintaining a good immune system is essential for your health and wellbeing.

How Much do I take?

We recommend anywhere between 3g – 10g per day. If you have the higher amount we recommend spacing the dosage out in 2 or 3 serves throughout the day.

We definitely recommend increasing your intake to the higher end of the range if you are training hard and often. This goes for all types of athletes including lifters, endurance athletes

At Nutrition Supplement Co. we love glutamine and a good 3g serve of it can be found in Cyborg Fusion BCAAs.
