Amino acids are compounds used by the body for a number of functions. They are often referred to as the building blocks of protein. Proteins are required by the human body for the repair, maintenance and growth of tissue. They are also components of enzymes, hormones and neurotransmitters (brain chemicals).
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. During times of stress or illness, the body often needs more L-glutamine than it can make naturally, which is where a supplement like L-Glutamine Powder can support the body to bridge the gap.
It supports gut function and can improve symptoms of IBS such as bloating or diarrhoea. It is used by cells along the digestive tract as a source of fuel to enhance the protective mucosal lining. This helps to ensure proper nutrient absorption and digestion while helping to prevent infections and inflammation of the intestinal barrier. It has shown to be helpful in inflammatory bowel diseases.
L-Glutamine Powder is often taken as part of a sports nutrition programme to preserve lean muscle mass and aid post workout recovery time.
