Glutamine is the most abundant free form amino acid in the human circulatory system. It is depleted during high intensity exercise and must be replenished to promote muscle glycogen recovery and immune system function.
BENEFITS OF GLUTAMINE SUPPLEMENTATION
Glutamine has played a major role in sports nutrition for more than a decade and with its long history in supplementation it brings along many fallacies and misunderstandings in regards to its supplementation. For those that discredit glutamine supplementation because it is a non-essential amino acid, they only need to look at the research that points to glutamine being depleted from high intensity exercise and its need to be replenished to maximize muscle glycogen and improve immune system function.
