Glutamine is considered to be a conditionally essential amino acid, which means that under certain circumstances, the body may require more glutamine than it can produce. In the body, glutamine functions as a major nitrogen transporter and is critical for the maintenance of healthy nitrogen balance. Glutamine also acts as the primary fuel for the rapidly growing cells of the immune system and GI tract.
NOW® L-Glutamine Powder is a pure, free-form, non-essential, amino acid and is the highest grade available.
Physical exertion sets off a cascade of stress responses in the body that, if left unaddressed, can make it harder for you to recover and harder for you to achieve the gains you're working toward. Because L-Glutamine not only can help to address the many different stressors that arise from physical exertion but can also help you in a variety of other ways.
Helps to maintain a positive nitrogen balance, referred to as an anabolic state, which is crucial for any active individual.
Aids in the production of rapidly growing cells, such as immune system lymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes, which can help to off-set some of the stress from physical exertion.
Helps to regulate the body’s acid-alkaline balance (also known as body pH); homeostasis is critical for overall fitness.
