Taking a closer look at the benefits of Glutamine.
 
Glutamine levels in the body can be maintained within a healthy diet, but there are certain cases where supplementing it will prove beneficial.
 
✔️ Do you go through physical or mental stress daily?
Physical stress causes the body to work together to repair damage, adaptogens help with this and Glutamine has adaptogen characteristics. Physical stress also can increase levels of ammonia within the body, which at high levels becomes toxic. Glutamine plays a role in helping reduce these levels within the kidneys.
 
✔️ Are you currently injured, or being proactive trying to prevent injury?
Glutamine helps build muscle and prevents muscle wasting. When Glutamine levels are lacking within an individual muscle wasting can occur, or the muscle may take much longer to recover and rebuilt after exercise. Studies have shown that by supplementing with Glutamine you can prevent injuries by helping the body to recover faster.
 
✔️ Do you want to increase memory and concentration?
Glutamine is a precursor to Gaba and Glutamate. This is the reason studies show a direct connection between the use of Glutamine supplements and increased memory and enhanced ability to focus. They have also shown that by having increased stores of Glutamine and its by-products in the body help the brain and nervous system handle stress more effectively, leading to a reduce in fatigue and increase in performance after long hours of working or studying.
 
✔️Do you suffer from insomnia and want to increase your restful sleep?
Glutamine helps to promote better sleep by helping to “switch off” ammonia, which greatly disturbs restful sleep. This cellular toxin is created while breaking down proteins. It stops energy production in cells and restricts cellular respiration. When there is too much ammonia in the body in may end up in the brain, paralyzing functional processes.
 
✔️Do you suffer from sugar cravings often?
According to a study conducted in 2011, Glutamine enhances the production of a specific beta endorphin and a unique peptide, GHG. This study concluded that cravings for sugar were suppressed during the application of this peptide through the use of Glutamine.
 
✔️Do you suffer from digestive issues?
Glutamine helps with the Ph balance on the intestinal tract and balances the production of mucus. This helps with regular, healthy bowel movements and the repair of the large and small intestines. Increasing the health of your digestive tract will also have a positive effect on your immune system, which Glutamine has been documented as having a positive effect on.
