During strenuous exercise our muscle cells consume large amounts of glutamine. Besides the loss in muscle tissue, there is often an incomplete regeneration of muscles.
When the body lacks glutamine, it will tap into muscle reserves, causing tissue damage. When the body has a sufficient amount of glutamine, muscle mass can be replenished.
With its reconstructive properties, glutamine is an ideal food supplement during stress (physical or mental) and in case of intensive physical effort.
The role of glutamine goes far beyond mere reconstruction. It is essential for cell growth and is the most important fuel for the immune system. It stimulates glycogen synthesis in the liver and muscles. In addition, it reduces muscle acidification after exercise.
Glutamine also helps to balance the nitrogen level. It is not an essential amino acid since the body is able to produce it. However, glutamine supplementation can effectively reduce the risk of muscle tears.
