Glutamine is an amino acid of paramount importance for people wanting to maintain good physical fitness and good health. This is the most present amino acid free form in the human body. Fortunately, it is easy to consume a good amount in our diet. However, for high-level sports it is recommended to consume glutamine in addition to help recovery and help the immune system function properly. Of course, the human body can make its own glutamine from ammonia and glutamate, but intense efforts quickly drain glutamine reserves into muscle tissue and your own production becomes insufficient for optimal functioning. In recent years, glutamine has been widely used to reduce intestinal inflammation and improve the health of your intestine. Here are some of the roles of glutamine:

  • Helps maintain good integrity of the intestinal mucosa.
  • Participates in the proper functioning of the immune system.
  • Helps in muscle growth and recovery.
A good dose of glutamine is between 20 to 40 grams per day, depending on your muscle mass and your level of training. Gluta-X is available in 500g and 1kg.
