Micronised L-Glutamine supports muscle tissue and mass after physical activity and immune system function.* Micronised technology greatly minimises the particle size, allowing higher absorption. Natural Factors amino acids are the highest quality products available.
Glutamine is required for numerous metabolic and biochemical processes including synthesis of protein and nucleic acids, defence against infection and inflammation, production of the antioxidant glutathione, and recovery from physical trauma, heavy or prolonged exercise, and illness. Increased utilisation of glutamine during exercise may lead to a deficiency in the immune cells, resulting in impaired immune defence, impairment of gastrointestinal mucosal integrity, and increased susceptibility to illness and infection.
During prolonged exercise, physical trauma, and surgery the liver and kidneys need more glutamine to produce glucose and maintain their acid-base balance. In the recovery period following exercise, glutamine and other amino acids are required for glucose production and muscle growth, and to prevent protein breakdown. Glutamine naturally boosts the immune system, helping to protect against infection and disease. It helps the gastrointestinal tract's natural defence response combat a variety of cell stressors by stabilizing the intestinal barrier, strengthening the cells of the immune system, reducing the formation of inflammatory molecules, and promoting phagocytosis to kill invading organisms.
