L-Glutamine is one of the 20 amino acids, or “building blocks” of protein. It is a vital molecule that our body stores in the bloodstream and converts into glucose (blood sugar) when it is needed.
L-Glutamine, the natural form of glutamine, is needed for a wide range of repair and maintenance functions, such as wound healing, muscle and bone growth, digestive health, gut wall integrity and leaky gut syndrome.
L-Glutamine is critical for a number of biological processes. It is also one of the few amino acids that directly cross the blood-brain barrier – a separation of circulating blood and the brain extracellular fluid in the central nervous system.
It is synthesised from 3 other amino acids, namely ornithine, arginine and proline. In the body, L-Glutamine is found circulating in the blood, as well as stored in the skeletal muscles.
This is a pure amino acid powder, used by people with various forms of digestive and intestinal problems (such as leaky gut syndrome and food intolerance reactions), a strained immune system and by athletes following gruelling training routines (it breaks down uric acid from proteins). It can also be used by people for recuperation purposes, for example following surgery, or any time the body is placed under unusual strain.
NOTE: Total number of servings will vary between 7 and 20 (based on 5g – 15g powder per serving).
Contains no added: artificial colours, flavourings, preservatives, dairy products, gluten, lactose, soya, sugar, wheat or yeast.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
A very important amino acid, required by the body for many repair and maintenance functions, such as:
- tissue integrity of the digestive system
- the proper function of the immune system
- proper brain function
- wound healing
- muscles and bone growth, repair and maintenance
When our bodies come under increased strain for any reason (e.g. through sickness or strenuous physical activity), our bodies’ own L-Glutamine levels may require some support, therefore L-glutamine is widely used by:
- people with various forms of digestive and intestinal problems
- people with an overtaxed or exhausted immune system
- athletes, following gruelling training sessions, muscle repair and growth
- joint conditions or arthritis.
