Why supplement with L-Glutamine?
- It is the primary fuel source for the intestinal mucosa, this makes it a fantastic supplement for the repair of the intestinal lining. Heavy workout sessions can deplete glutamine levels so topping up levels in a post-workout shake can prevent this. Here at CoActive Health Shop, we take gut health very seriously and glutamine is a go to supplement when we want to run a ‘gut repair’ protocol.
- Taking L-Glutamine post workout has been shown to help with protein synthesis ( muscle building ). It does this by helping muscle cells stay hydrated and also through triggering a boost in growth hormone.
- L-Glutamine has also been shown to boost the immune system. After intense training sessions the body is placed under a great deal of stress so naturally the immune system is suppressed opening up a window for infection and illness. However supplementing with glutamine provides the body’s immune system with an immediate fuel source thus keeping it functioning optimally.
