Struggling to climb the stairs three days after your last leg session? You might think that means you gave 300% to that session, but we think poor-recovery might have something to do with this one. There's a ton of supplements that help with your recovery - but despite this, Glutamine is probably one of the fundamentals. Bonus is - it helps out with your digestion, immune systems too. ATP Glutamine provides nothing but the purest forms of this golden amino for your god-like muscles.

To try and explain this simply, glutamine is a non-essential amino acid - a 'building block' of protein that our body actually naturally creates and stores. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body - and for a good reason: it's range of roles are incredibly extensive. It has both muscle building and fat loss benefits, but also a large number of positive health benefits.
The first function of glutamine is as a transport system for nitrogen - and effectively transports over 33% of your body's total nitrogen! Nitrogen is an essential nutrient required by the body in the process of recovery - stimulating healing in all kinds of stress and trauma, whether it be small micro-tears from an effective training session, 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. This explains why glutamine is such a popular product within the fitness industry - we are frequently pushing our body to perform above the norm, therefore depleting our body's regular glutamine stores quite rapidly. Supplementation assists in ensuring Glutamine, as a key player in the recovery game, is always available to our body and muscular systems.
Glutamine is also plays a major role in regulating 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. This presents another reason for additional supplementation of glutamine. Remember, the supply your body naturally makes is limited, and in a time of injury or fighting sickness, a fair portion of glutamine stores are focussed on that area. Consequently, the available Glutamine to send nitrogen to your muscles and take away your post-gym recovery, is pretty minimal.
Finally, Glutamine is also strongly linked to the digestive system - and effective in reducing inflammation within the intestinal tract, as well as strengthening and rebuilding the intestinal walls. This inflammation is the cause of the "Leaky Gut" condition - and Glutamine supplementation is therefore often discussed in regards to this topic. While Glutamine is also effective in treatment of this condition, it's definitely also a common review that is it hugely effective in minimising bloating, discomfort and digestion issues too!
L-Glutamine is non-essential and conditionally essential in humans, meaning the body can usually synthesize sufficient amounts of it, but in some instances of stress (such as intense exercise), the body’s demand for glutamine increases and glutamine must be obtained from the diet. In fact, glutamine is so important to the body, it is the most abundant amino acid found in the blood. L-Glutamine comes in both 500gm (100 serves) and 1kg (200 serves) sizes.
L-Glutamine Key Features
- Reduces muscle soreness after exercise (DOMS)
- Catabolic states, such as major trauma, sepsis, major surgery and bone marrow transplantation as well as intense chemotherapy and radiotherapy, are associated with low plasma levels of glutamine
- Reduced availability of glutamine in these conditions may lead to an impaired immune function because of a reduced capacity of immune cells to proliferate
- Glutamine is the respiratory fuel for the lymphocytes, hepatocytes and the mucosal cells of the gut
- Glutamine is one of the most important substrates for ammoniagenesis, not only in the gut, but also in the kidney, because of its important role in the regulation of acid-base homeostasis
L-Glutamine is best used before or directly after training. A dose of 5g is standard. For maximum benefits, expert nutritionists recommended consuming 5g, 1 - 3 times daily, once in the morning, pre and post workout and before bed. L-Glutamine is esily mixed with water, juice and other supplements.
