Glutamine Explained

You’ve probably heard about glutamine already – but is it of any use in the pursuit of gains? As it turns out, glutamine has been comprehensively researched and is actually one of the most important supplements for your training and overall well-being!

The simplest way to look at glutamine is as an amino-acid. What sets this particular one apart from the rest is that it is the most abundant amino-acid in muscle cells (over 60%) despite not being essential. While your body can create it for tissue repair and cell growth, if you’ve had a high intensity workout, are dieting for weight loss, or are under severe stress, glutamine is just what you need to boost your energy levels and improve your health!

Glutamine


But.. What does it do exactly?

Glutamine has multiple functions within the body, some of which are directly applicable to gym goers. It regulates acid-base balance in the kidneys, serves as an energy source, transports ammonia in blood circulation, but most importantly functions as a means of protein synthesis.

In addition, research has shown that glutamine supplementation also assists with improvement in gut health, as the intestines are the most glutamine hungry part of the body. Digestive health combined with a well-balanced diet is a massive tick!

 

When should I take it?

Your daily intake of glutamine should be based on your schedule and workout.

Training Days - On days when you workout, take 5-10 grams immediately after exercise to enhance recovery. Your muscles are depleted of nutrients post workout, they are primed for an influx of nutrients and will absorb glutamine most efficiently. You can then continue to take the rest of your daily intake in 5-gram doses every 2-3 hours. If you exercise later in the day, take 5-grams before your workout as well to maximize its effects.

Non-Training Days - On days when you don’t exercise, you should still consume glutamine, taking 5-gram doses every 3 hours. This will keep the glutamine concentration in your body high to promote health and help your body recover!


What does this mean for you? You will drop the water that is making you look bloated while maintaining the correct osmotic and electrolyte balance in your body - ensuring your hormones will continue to work optimally and you won't be exposed to feeling lethargic or tired; instead you will look and feel your best!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is glutamine?

Glutamine is a naturally occurring amino acid that can be produced by your body, but is one of the most important supplements you need for physical training.

This makes glutamine one of the most important supplements there is for those who visit the gym regularly or are bodybuilders. It has anti-catabolic effects to reduce muscle wasting and improve muscle anabolism, helps to hydrate muscle cells, improves immune function, boost growth hormone levels and increase glycogen storage.
