PFC L-Glutamine

PFC L-Glutamine

L-Glutamine is a protein amino acid found in proteins of all life forms. It has come to be regarded as one of the most important of the amino acids when the body is subjected to stressful situations (Including surgical trauma), cancer, sepsis, burns and working out. During intense training, L-Glutamine levels are greatly depleted in the body, which decreases strength, stamina and recovery. It can take up to six days for Glutamine levels to be returned to normal and Glutamine plays a key roll in protein synthesis. Studies have shown that L-Glutamine supplementation can help in the following ways:

  • Minimize the breakdown of muscle and improve protein synthesis
  • Prevents muscle (protein) from being catabolized
  • Helps to maintain cell volume and hydration which speeds up wound and burn recovery
  • Produces growth hormones
  • Boosts immune system
  • Helps maintain bowel structure and movements
  • Helps to curb sugar cravings
