L – Glutamin Amino Acid Booster
The L – Glutamin Amino Acid Booster is a pure amino acid powder, fermented from glucose and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
L – Glutamin Amino Acid Booster is a pure amino acid powder, used by people with various forms of digestive and intestinal problems (such as leaky gut syndrome and food intolerance reactions), a strained immune system and by athletes following gruelling training routines (it breaks down uric acid from proteins). It can also be used by people for recuperation purposes, for example following surgery, or any time the body is placed under unusual strain.
- it is critical for normal brain and immune function
- it has been used for the treatment of fatigue and alcoholism
- it is even reputed to help reduce sugar cravings in people trying to lose weight.
L-Glutamine is synthesized from 3 other amino acids (or ‘building blocks’ of protein) – arginine, ornithine and proline. L-Glutamine is a also a component of glutathione, the body’s primary antioxidant, which is present in virtually every cell. If you are deficient in L-Glutamine, you are likely to be deficient in glutathione.
Growth, development and muscle
One of the most notable properties of glutamine is that it is one of a handful of substances that can naturally boost the level of human growth hormone, which is essential for normal growth and development.
In the past, growth hormone has been used experimentally as a treatment for the loss of muscle that often occurs among the sick and the elderly, and can lead to wasting syndrome. Although growth hormone can help maintain strength, the problem is that synthetic growth hormone is extremely expensive and, more importantly, can cause unpleasant side effects (such as water retention and arthritic symptoms).
However, growth hormone-releasing agents, such as glutamine, can offer some of the positive effects of growth hormone minus the expense and the array of side effects. This is particularly important for people who are severely ill and who often succumb to wasting syndrome.
In fact, glutamine is often given to patients with burn injuries to promote healing and to help strengthen immune function.
A protein-sparing agent
People who regularly work out at an intense level are at risk of overtaxing their bodies, as well as losing lean tissue along with fat.As such, and due to its reputation as a protein=sparing agent, L-Glutamine has also attracted the attention of fitness buffs and athletes, who want to lose fat but maintain muscle.
Paradoxically, this supplement is ideal for both the very fit and the very sick.
Glutamine is one of the 20 amino acids, or “building blocks” of protein. It is a vital molecule that our body stores in the bloodstream and converts into glucose (blood sugar) when it is needed.
L-Glutamine, the natural form of glutamine, is needed for a wide range of repair and maintenance functions, such as wound healing, muscle and bone growth, digestive health and gut wall integrity. L-glutamine is the most plentiful amino acid in the body and supports intestinal health. L-glutamine may work for those with IBS because of this role. The tissues found in the intestine use L-glutamine as a fuel source to function at their best. L-glutamine is also thought to help maintain proper barriers within the intestine.
As such, for best results of L – Glutamin Amino Acid Booster it should ideally be combined with our great-tasting and filling Vegan Superfood protein powder blends which:
