Vitacost L-Glutamine -- 750 mg - 180 Capsules
Strengthen and defend yourself against stress and muscle fatigue!*. What is L-glutamine? L-glutamine is an amino acid found in a proportionally high amount in the body compared to other amino acids. Scientists consider L-glutamine to be a conditionally essential amino acid meaning its intake is not normally required in the diet. L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in blood plasma and a major transporter of nitrogen. It is an important precursor for protein synthesis and it supports cellular functions of all types. L-glutamine is also a precursor of L-glutamate (an amino acid involved in energy metabolism). How does L-glutamine support health? Assists in the process of exercise recovery and helps maintain nitrogen/ammonia balance for better muscle metabolism.*. Helps maintain normal function of the entire gastrointestinal tract.*. Under physiological stress L-glutamine may have to be supplied by diet to maintain normal gut liver immune and muscle function.*. Why choose Vitacost L-Glutamine?

"As a 6'6" male with fast metabolism and difficulty to put on weight in general, but mainly muscle weight, l-glutamin has proven to serve its purpose. It helped me to enhance my performance, decrease recovery time and assisted in adding muscle weight. Note, however, that my primary goal isn't mass, but strength and speed for other sports. It definitely helps keep you lean while supporting muscle growth."
