Glutamine - Supports Muscle Growth & Recovery and Healthy Intestinal Repair
Glutamine is a common amino acid that is found in many protein containing foods. It is important for a large
number of bodily functions, including the immune system, human growth hormone production, intestinal health,
muscle recovery and protein synthesis.
   Key Benefits:
•        Amino acid support for reducing alcohol and sugar cravings
•        Rapidly facilitates healing and restores the health of the mucus membranes inside the colon
•        High dose glutamine is exceptional to repair gastrointestinal injury
•        Supports normal bowel movements; helps body overcome diarrhea
•        Inhibits protein breakdown which enhances muscle growth and improves athletic performance
•        Helps support human growth hormone production

Muscle Recovery
Glutamine is the single most abundant amino acid found in the skeletal muscle and is heavily metabolized under
intense training conditions. Clinical studies reveal that glutamine supplementation can help support recovery after
intense training by promoting energy repletion, maintaining a healthy immune system and maximizing your body's
buffering capacity against acid build-up. Glutamine is in high demand throughout the body.  

Glutamine and the Immune System
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. Research shows that glutamine can help support your
immune system by strengthening immunoglobulins, such as s-IgA, on your intestinal mucosal lining.

Secondly, glutamine can also help strengthen and increase the numbers of certain white blood cells, called
lymphocytes. This also helps to support your immune system. Glutamine is considered an essential amino acid for
mucosal and intestinal integrity during times of stress and during chronic illness.
Intestinal Repair
Glutamine is one of the most important nutrients for healing leaky gut syndrome, because it is the preferred 'fuel'
for the cells lining the mucosa of the small intestine (enterocytes). These cells have the ability to take up glutamine
directly rather than waiting for it to be supplied through the blood. Glutamine is also required for the production of
both intestinal mucus and Secretary Immunoglobulin Type A (SIgA).
As a result of these functions, a generous supply of glutamine will help repair and maintain a healthy small
intestinal lining. These functions, as well as glutamine's ability to prevent translocation of bacteria from the gut to
the bloodstream, have been established in a substantial number of clinical studies both in animals and in human
patients with diseases involving impaired intestinal permeability.
