L-Glutamine helps support immune and digestive system health after periods of physical stress. L-Glutamine also helps to assist in muscle cell repair after exercise.
L-Glutamine is one of the 20 fundamental amino acids involved in protein synthesis; it is also the most abundant, forming approximately one fifth of the amino acid pool in the human bloodstream. Glutamine is critical for a wide variety of essential functions, including optimal operation of the kidneys, pancreas, gall bladder, liver, the small and large intestines, and the brain. Glutamine is also the most important of all amino acids in maintaining nitrogen balance within the body.
L-Glutamine’s importance toward good immunity is known to be two-fold: it directly supports the immune system during times of stress through its ability to help produce glutathione, and it indirectly supports immunity by reducing intestinal permeability or “leaky gut”, inhibiting undigested particles from accessing the bloodstream.
L-Glutamine stimulates the production of human growth hormone (hGH), which is essential for building muscle and maintaining youthful cellular function.
Glutamine can be taken by people with leaky gut or poor immune function. It is also a beneficial sports nutrition product for athletes, after resistance training or intense exercise since exercise and other forms of stress can result in large drops in glutamine levels.
Take 5 grams (approx. one teaspoon) of AOR L-Glutamine Powder in water per day without food, or as directed by a qualified health practioner.
