L-Glutamine is a Non-Essential Amino Acid, the most abundant among the 20 Amino Acids that are part of Protein. It is present in the muscles and closely related to the cellular metabolism that takes place in the brain. It is a very important Amino Acid for beginner or advanced athletes, because Glutamine can maximize performance and optimize recovery.
Glutamine, with great benefits for muscle tissue, helps improve protein synthesis and helps reduce catabolism (muscle degradation). As it is not an Essential Amino Acid, there is no recommended quantity; however, occasionally it may be essential to increase your intake. In addition, our body generates it on its own, helping the recovery, increase and strength of muscle mass during exercises.
Glutamine is versatile and stackable with other Sports Supplements for maximum results. It can be mixed with Protein Powders, providing an advantage in post-workout recovery, which could help you avoid catabolism and/or build lean muscle mass.
