Why should I opt for Glutamine supplements? I get lots of question from clients
asking why/when they should supplement with this #aminoacid.
This nutritional component is part of the group of non-essential amino acids. What does this mean?
First, let us briefly explain the function of amino acids. They are nutrients that combine to form #proteins and are responsible for helping our body to perform vital functions such as developing, repairing tissues and improving cardiovascular health, neurological and intestinal function, among others. They can be framed in essential and nonessential. The essentials are those that we do not produce in our body, but we can extract them from food.
Glutamine is one of the most important amino acids for a healthy digestive tract because of its ability to maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall. This amino acid heals all tissue in the body, especially those irritated tissues in the digestive tract.
Taking glutamine supplement can be helpful if you’re experiencing:
• Sugar or alcohol cravings
• Constipation or diarrhea
• Poor immune system
• Low muscle mass
• Poor wound healing
• Slow recovery after workouts
