L-glutamine - what is it?
L-glutamine is one of the 20 protein amino acids, i.e. the building blocks of proteins that perform important functions in our body. L-glutamine belongs to the group of conditionally essential amino acids, which means that under normal conditions our body can produce it itself from other ingredients, but in situations of stress, illness or intense physical exercise, its demand increases and it must be supplied from the outside, e.g. food or supplements. L-glutamine is the most common amino acid in our body - it constitutes about 60% of free amino acids in muscles and about 20% of the total amino acid pool.
L-glutamine has many different functions, such as:
- participates in the synthesis of proteins and nucleotides (DNA and RNA components)
- regulates nitrogen and acid-base metabolism in the body
- it is a source of energy for many cells, especially cells of the immune, intestinal and nervous systems
- supports tissue regeneration and healing processes
- protects muscles against breakdown and catabolism
- improves physical and mental performance
- supports immunity and prevents infections
L-glutamine - how does it affect the intestines?
L-glutamine plays an important role in maintaining intestinal health and improving the function of its protective barrier. This is very important not only for the proper functioning of the digestive system, but also the immune system. The intestines are the place where we digest food, absorb nutrients and produce many substances important for our health, e.g. hormones, enzymes and antibodies. The intestines are also exposed to many harmful factors, such as toxins, bacteria and viruses. Therefore, they need a strong protective barrier that prevents these factors from penetrating the bloodstream and causing inflammation or allergies.
L-glutamine is the main source of energy for the intestinal epithelial cells (enterocytes) that create this barrier. L-glutamine ensures proper metabolic function, synthesis of proteins and mucopolysaccharides (mucus components), and stimulates their multiplication and repair of damage. L-glutamine also protects the intestines against damage caused by stress, alcohol, drugs and radiation.
L-glutamine helps maintain the integrity of the intestinal mucosa and prevent the so-called leaky gut syndrome, which involves excessive penetration of substances from the intestines into the bloodstream and causing inflammation, allergies or autoimmunity throughout the body.
Why, as a training person, should you be interested in this supplement?
Amino acids are the basic building blocks of the tissues in your body. Most of them, in a normal situation, the body produces itself (amino acids are necessary for digestion, liver function and wound healing. Amino acids are also responsible for the condition of the skin, ligaments, muscles, tendons, internal organs, glands, hair and nails. They contribute to for the production of hormones, neurotransmitters and enzymes. In addition, they serve as a source of energy).
Glutamine actively participates in the healing processes of wounds and micro-damages. The amino acid allows you to exercise longer by providing fuel to the muscles. It also protects against the loss of muscle glycogen. The preparation increases the body's immunity and is responsible for the increased production of glutathione, which is a natural antioxidant.
It has the ability to increase the volume of muscle fibers. It occurs there in the greatest amount in the free form, thanks to which it can quickly participate in the processes of protein biosynthesis and inhibit the damage caused by enzymes contributing to the breakdown of muscle fibers. Research-confirmed effectiveness in increasing the level of growth hormone (GH) is very important for athletes, because GH It is one of the most effective anabolic hormones.
If you want to stand out, for example with impressive muscles, you need outside help. All because the body of people who train works at a higher speed. Proteins are broken down by vigorous exercise, so they need to be replenished all the time. Thanks to this, you will achieve better training effects and allow your body to regenerate.
1 serving immediately after training.
