Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in the human body. It is an important component of muscle protein, necessary for building and repairing muscle. During times of physical stress, exercise and exertion glutamine reserves are often depleted. L-glutamine contributes to protein synthesis (muscle growth) and prevents muscle breakdown.
L-glutamine is important for maintaining healthy intestinal mucosa and helps reduce damage to the gut wall. It regulates acid balance, and is involved in protein synthesis and energy production.
Blooms L-Glutamine Powder is important for repairing and building muscle and reducing muscle catabolism (breakdown) making it a valuable aid for those undergoing heavy workouts.
People who engage in intense exercise have an increased dietary requirement to restore L-glutamine levels to normal to avoid loss of muscle mass. Blooms L-Glutamine
Powder is especially useful post workout, to replenish depleted glutamine stores.
L-glutamine also helps reduce impairment of immune function brought on by exercise.
L-glutamine plays an important role in gut health. It protects the intestinal mucosa from damage and promotes repair of the gut wall.
Breakdown of the mucosal lining of the gut causes increased gut permeability.
The gut lining contains rows of tall columnar epithelial cells, all tightly packed together. It is here that L-Glutamine is involved in promoting strong junctions, reducing cell breakdown and supporting cell repair.
L-glutamine functions to support the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract.
L-glutamine has many further functions in the body. Blooms L-Glutamine Powder:
- Is required for a healthy immune system.
- Is an antioxidant.
- Accelerates wound healing
- Is important for the regulation of acid / alkaline balance
- Is required for energy production for red and white blood cells.
- Supports protein synthesis, energy production and, when necessary, glycogen production.
