WHAT IS GLUTAMINE ? - ITS BENEFITS ? - ITS DOSAGE ?




WHAT IS GLUTAMINE ?


Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid

which is produced within our body and plays a key role in metabolism.Glutamine aids in increasing our body's natural growth hormone production.Glutamine does not only maintain intestinal function, it is one of the primary sources of energy for our immune system. Having enough Glutamine is a very important and necessary supplement, especially for individuals who are following high intensity training program and are looking to build muscle. Glutamine can promote muscle growth, limit muscle loss and improve muscle endurance.

WHY TO TAKE GLUTAMINE ?

Glutamine is produced within our body , However sometimes the glutamine requirements of our body becomes more than it can produce.Therefore it is considered essential amino acid which should be taken through either diet or supplementation to meet the body requirements.


BENEFITS OF GLUTAMINE


-- HELP IN MAINTAINING MUSCLE MASS

Research has found that Glutamine supplements can help maintain muscle mass by preventing protein breakdown and improving glycogen synthesis therefore increasing muscle glycogen stores basically the energy for your training sessions.Studies have shown that L-Glutamine supplementation can minimize breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism.

-- INCREASES IMMUNITY
The depletion of Glutamine caused by intense exercise causes suppression of the immune system until Glutamine levels are restored through either diet or supplements, the period of suppression opens the body up to higher risk of infection.Glutamine will prevent the breakdown of muscle, enable your muscles to store more energy for exercise, reduce post workout soreness, and boost your immune system.

--BETTER DIGESTION AND HEALTHY INTESTINES
Adding this into your day to day will not only help with athletic performance, muscle recovery and immune health, but it is also essential for proper gut health. Glutamine plays an important role in helping your small intestines absorb the nutrients from the food you eat meaning if you have adequate glutamine levels, you are less likely to suffer from digestive issues.


DOSAGE AND SIDE EFFECTS ?

Since glutamine is an amino acid which is produced within a body and is found in foods,there is no concern of it's harmful effects.


It has been estimated that a typical diet should contain 3-6 grams of glutamine. But for people with higher requirement of glutamine may take dosage between 8-10 grams.Even though there is no evidence of harmful effects of overdosing glutamine but it is recommended to keep the dosage below 15 grams.

About Me

My photo
“Respect your body. It’s the only one you get.” My fitness journey started in 2015 when i completed my graduation, I was an underweight guy with a weight of 49 Kg and standing 5ft 10inch. Before 2015 for almost 5 years I was taking medicines on daily basis due to tapeworm in my brain which, the continuous consumption of medicine made my liver weak and this effected my growth. After finishing my degree ,I finally decided that I need to fix myself. Then I started working out and it changed my life. I didn't wanted to go to gym as i was skinny guy and lacked confidence, So I started with home workout (push ups pull ups) . I red articles, magazines, videos just to learn how to grow. In just 8 months without any coach or nutritionist I gained 20 Kg. This boosted my confidence a lot. Now Today I weigh 73 Kg a fit lean guy with max for Deadlifts: 330 lbs (2 Reps) Squat: 242 lbs (6 Reps) Bench: 209 lbs (6 Reps) I am still learning a lot and want to share what I have learned during my fitness journey. Lets learn and grow together.- love and peace
