- Increases the synthesis of proteins and the secretion of growth hormone

- Speeds up recovery following training
- Optimizes glucose and insulin function.
- Helps prevent muscle degradation
- Improves function of the immune system
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. It serves a wide range of important functions, including providing great support to the immune system, the production of energy, playing a crucial role in cell volumizing, and has powerful muscle-building effects, boosting protein synthesis, while inhibiting the degradation of proteins.
Glutamine can even increase the secretion of growth hormone. Studies have shown that supplementation with just two grams of free form L-glutaminade can increase growth hormone levels by up to 400%. Normally, the body generates its own reserves of glutamine and therefore it is deemed to be a non-essential amino acid. However, at times of stress (physical and mental), the increased demand for glutamine can exceed the bodys capacity to produce it.
When that happens, glutamine becomes a conditionally essential amino acid to ensure optimal physiological function. This is why taking glutamine supplements such as L-Glutamine by CytoSport is immensely beneficial for supporting the needs of athletes and fitness enthusiasts who train hard.
