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 bodys 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 benefits include:

  • 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

The Science of L-Glutamine reducing the DOMS!

A study examined the effects that L-glutamine supplementation has on quadriceps muscle strength and soreness ratings following resistance exercise. It was thought that glutamine ingestion would quicken the recovery rate of peak force production and decrease muscle soreness ratings over a 72-hr recovery period. Sixteen healthy participants volunteered in a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled crossover study. Muscle soreness was measured before, immediately following, 24, 48, and 72 hr post-resistance exercise. L-glutamine resulted in greater relative peak power during the exercise. In all the individuals, L-glutamine resulted in lower soreness ratings at 24, 48 and 72 hour post-exercise. The bottom line is that L-glutamine supplementation resulted in faster recovery of peak power and diminished muscle soreness following exercise.

Directions: Consume 5g mixed with water 1 to 3 times daily. For maximum benefits take one serving in the morning, before or after training, and before bed.

Great Product

Using for gut health. After the first week already helping with muscle aches and pains as well. It would be cool if this was available in larger sizes (1kg or more?). Highly recommended.

Sleep!! Finally

I've been using this for sore muscles and sleep and it works really really well. I can work out everyday and the recovery is amazing! Sports Fuel have such amazing customer service - one of my favourite stores!!!

Helpful for sleep, muscle soreness and more

I’ve been taking this daily for about 2 years now and I wouldn’t go a day without it! Helps a lot with reducing muscle soreness after exercise. It’s also amazing for helping me fall asleep at night (insomnia) because it works on the gaba receptors in the brain (calming the mind). It’s also helped to completely heal my gut and rebuild my gut lining, which has allowed me to eat foods I used to be sensitive too. Great product for joints too, my mum has had 2 knee surgeries and uses it for her knees.. she’s not a health guru.. but she loves this stuff! Highly recommend... it also is flavourless, so it’s easy to drink in water

I guess a good product

This product was recommended by my personal trainer. I have been taking it for a few weeks already. It's almost flavourless.
