L-Glutamine

(GLN)

What is L-Glutamine?

L-Glutamine is an amino acid and is the most abundant, naturally occurring, non-essential amino acid in muscle tissue. 60 percent of free-form amino acids found in skeletal muscles are L-glutamine. It plays a critical role in protein synthesis. In states of illness or injury, L-glutamine becomes conditionally essential, which means the body cannot produce enough on its own and requires intake from food or supplements. Glutamine helps fuel two very important brain neurotransmitters, GABA and glutamic acid, thus enhancing brain function.

During intense workouts, the body uses a great deal of glutamine. The immune system also relies heavily on glutamine. Therefore, the intake of glutamine keeps your body from taking glutamine from the muscles for use elsewhere and so prevents muscle breakdown (known as catabolism). Increased glutamine consumption also provides a meaningful increase in growth hormone levels.

What are the benefits of L-Glutamine?

  • Plays a critical role in protein synthesis 
  • Helps prevent muscle breakdown
  • Improves athletic performance 
  • Helps boost the immune system 
  • Important building block for the stomach and intestines 
  • Reduces injury recovery time 
  • Speeds up wound healing 
  • Increases growth hormone levels 

How can you get L-Glutamine into your body?

Dietary sources of L-Glutamine include beans, fish, eggs, spinach, beef, chicken, dairy products, beets, parsley, wheat, cabbage, vegetable juices and miso soup. Because no one ingredient works totally on its own, and is enhanced by other ingredients combined with it, we recommend you include L-glutamine as part of a complete homeopathic hgh (human growth hormone) product. L-glutamine is an ingredient in the following HGH products:
