L-glutamine is an endogenous amino acid abundantly occurring in the body. Although it can be produced in the body, additional supplementation is recommended in conditions of increased demand such as intense exercise, illness, stress or injuries. In the case of glutamine deficiency, the body obtains it from where it occurs most abundantly, i.e., muscles, and uses it for the benefit of other organs.
Beneficial effect on the muscles
Glutamine supplementation during an intense workout supports muscle regeneration and growth. This is possible because it maintains the proper hydration of cells, reduces protein breakdown and participates in detoxification of ammonia.
What's more, glutamine helps in the reduction of catabolic effects of cortisol and it may increase the concentration of growth hormone, contributing to the reduction of body fat without loss of muscle mass. It is also appreciated for its influence on the regulation of blood glucose and muscle glycogen regeneration. Thanks to this, muscles receive a constant supply of energy and can work longer.
Strengthening of the immune system
Glutamine supports the production and regulates the activity of immune cells, reducing the risk of infection. What's more, along with cysteine and glycine, it contributes to the formation of one of the most important endogenous antioxidants – glutathione. It removes oxygen radicals, takes part in detoxification in the liver and improves the detection and destruction of microorganisms.
Promotion of the digestive health
Glutamine is a source of energy for digestive tract cells. It supports the maintenance of the integrity of the intestinal barrier, which may reduce the risk of infection and the occurrence of autoimmune diseases. By improving the blood circulation of the mucous membrane, it accelerates the healing of peptic ulcers.
Fuel for the brain
Glutamine may convert into glutamic acid – the main excitatory neurotransmitter involved in synaptic plasticity, including the maintenance of cognitive functions such as memory. Glutamic acid is also essential for normal cellular metabolism.
In conclusion, Aliness L-Glutamine is a preparation that supports the building of muscle mass and strengthens immunity. It is especially recommended for people who are intensively exercising and thus are particularly exposed to infections and injuries.
The natural source of glutamine is poultry, beef, fish, eggs, and some plants. Glutamine supplementation is considered safe and no side effects have been reported so far, however, diabetics and people with kidney problems should avoid high doses.
It is assumed that the daily requirement for glutamine is 0.8-1.2 g/10 kg of body weight, where this requirement is higher in case of strength and endurance athletes. Glutamine supplementation is also indicated during the treatment of severe burns, after surgeries and injuries, because it accelerates the healing process.
It is recommended to combine glutamine with a carbohydrate meal to maximally support the regeneration of the body.

L-glutamine - amino acid building endogenous proteins, glutamic acid amide. In the human body it is responsible for the synthesis of proteins, acid-base balance and removing ammonia outside of the organism. With the shortage of energy taken from the muscle tissue, glutamine with alanine participate in the process of gluconeogenesis, and participate in the production of glucose substrate. L-glutamine has a direct impact on the proper functioning of the digestive system and immunity of the organism. Participates in the synthesis of one of the most powerful antioxidant - glutathione. It has anti-catabolic potential. It is found naturally in foods of animal and vegetable origin and high protein supplements. Used as mono-preparation or multi-component amino-acid supplements and supplements enhancing biological recovery after exercises, often in combination with BCAA.
Dosage: 5-20 g per day (portioned during the day, and after training and waking up). The minimum dose used in supplementation is 2-15g per 1 serving.
