What is glutamine for?
Glutamine is considered an immunomodulator because it stimulates and strengthens the immune system, because it is used as a source of energy by the cells of the immune system, intestine and muscles.
Some studies have confirmed that glutamine supplementation accelerates the recovery of people who are in a post-operative, in a critical condition, which have suffered burns, sepsis, polytrauma or if they are immunosuppressed and reduced the hospital stay of these people. This is because this amino acid is conditionally essential during a situation of metabolic stress, and must be supplemented to prevent muscle degradation and stimulate the immune system.
Furthermore, supplementation with L-glutamine is also used to maintain muscle mass, as it reduces the degradation of muscle tissue after exercise; it stimulates the growth of the muscles because it favors the entry of amino acids into the muscle cells; help with intense exercise recovery and; helps in the recovery of the syndrome of excessive athletic training, a condition that promotes a drop in the plasma levels of glutamine.
