L Glutamine is a vital amino acid that is required by every muscle in the body, and is one of the most important building blocks in forming the proteins that maintain cellular health and tissue repair. L Glutamine is found in varying amounts in most meat and fish as well as, to a small extent, in vegetables and pulses. Anyone involved in high intensity training programmes designed for hypertrophy, may find L Glutamine a beneficial supplement.
L Glutamine is also considered useful to anyone undergoing training for endurance sports such as long distance running or cycling, and can help to reduce the incidence of cramps caused through repetitive strain.
While the studies are still a bit inconclusive, anecdotal evidence suggests that L.Glutamine will help regulate your blood sugar levels — particularly useful if you find yourself with regular sugar cravings or if your energy levels seem to peak and then crash.
You can get L.Glutamine from most health food stores or supplement providers.
It’s easy to mix into water and drink, or just add it to your protein shake. I’d recommend drinking L.Glutamine as soon as you wake up (first thing you do), drink post-work out as part of your protein shake and also drink with a meal (so you’re getting about 3 services of 2tbs every day).
