Description

Glutamine is an amino acid - a molecule which joins with others to build protein and perform other functions. There are two forms of amino acid: L-Glutamine and D-Glutamine, each with different functions. uses L-Glutamine, the more important variation of Glutamine that is naturally produced in the body. Glutamine provides more than 60% of the free amino acids that are present in the body which can be used to make other proteins. Amino acids are represented by a codon (essentially a code) which is created from three nitrogen bases. Glutamine carries the code CAG (cytosine-adenine-guanine) or CAA (cytosine-adenine-adenine.

Glutamine naturally occurs in specific food sources, including beef, pork, poultry, beans, legumes and raw, leafy green vegetables. Glutamine can also be found in organ meat, despite being eaten less frequently. Vegetarian sources of Glutamine contain less of the amino acid than meat-based sources.

Benefits

As an amino acid, Glutamine is used to synthesise new muscle. Glutamine provides 35% of the nitrogen needed to create new muscle, therefore if our Glutamine stores are low then we may lack adequate nitrogen stores to effectively produce new muscle. In times of short supply of energy (glucose from carbohydrates), Glutamine can be used. When using Glutamine as a secondary energy source, fewer amino acids are available to synthesise new muscle, hence the benefit of supplementing with Glutamine.
