Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid - a 'building block' of protein that our body actually naturally synthesises itself. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body with a very wide and extensive range of roles within a number of body systems. It has both muscle building and fat loss benefits, but also a large number of positive health benefits.
One function of glutamine is as a transport system for nitrogen - responsible for transporting over 33% of your body's total nitrogen! Nitrogen stimulates healing in all kinds of stress and trauma, and is therefore an essential nutrient required by the body in the process of recovery - whether it be small muscular micro-tears, post-workout soreness, major injuries, or bouncing back from an intensive surgery. Glutamine is the guy with the job of making sure that nitrogen actually gets to the right place, at the right time, in the right amounts. For individuals within the fitness industry it it common to be pushing your body to perform above the norm - and this definitely causes the body's regular glutamine stores quite to be depleted rapidly. This explains why glutamine is such a popular product within the fitness industry. Supplementation assists in ensuring Glutamine, as a key player in the recovery game, is always available to our body and muscular systems.
However, the roles of Glutamine go a little further and beyond than just that. Glutamine also acts upon the immune system - as a regulator of lymphocytes and cytokines - which are the white blood cells and the messengers for those white blood cells that control our immune response to pathogens (the cold and flu bugs that attack). Glutamine directs and ensures effective proliferation of lymphocytes, making sure they are sent to the right places when needed. Hence, during a time of pathogenic attack (whether you physically feel it through illness or not, a fair portion of glutamine stores are focussed on providing immunity in that area. Consequently, the available Glutamine to send nitrogen to your muscles and take away your post-gym recovery, is pretty minimal. Ever noticed that you get more sore after training either before, during or after a period of illness? This explains why! Additional glutamine supplementation helps to fill that gap and overcome this.
Finally, Glutamine also plays a role in ensuring the health and optimal functioning of the digestive system. Just as Glutamine assists the immune response all over our body, it does so within our gut too. Inflammation is a key 'default' response to pathogens - and to reduce inflammation and bloating within the intestinal tract we need glutamine. This inflammation is the cause of the "Leaky Gut" condition. In addition to aiding reduced inflammation within the intestinal tract, Glutamine also aid in strengthening and rebuilding the intestinal walls. Therefore, Glutamine has been commonly proven and reviewed to be effective in maintaining a healthy digestive system holistically, and minimising bloating, discomfort and digestion issues too!
