Life can be stressful; there’s no doubt about that. With the demands of family and work‚ sometimes you just don't have time to chill out and recover. When your body undergoes an intense strain—whether due to exercise or illness—it may need some extra help. L-glutamine is an amino acid produced by the muscles and found in certain foods‚ including fish‚ eggs‚ beets‚ beans‚ cabbage‚ and spinach. Amino acids are responsible for building protein. For many people‚ it’s difficult to get enough of the fresh‚ nutritious to satisfy daily requirements. This naturally occurring amino acid is normally abundant in your body‚ but during times of stress‚ illness or injury‚ supplementation is often recommended. Athletes have long used L-glutamine supplements to aid in muscle recovery and enhance their performance.

L-glutamine has several vital functions:

    • It supports the immune system.
    • It helps regulate the kidney's pH level.
    • It aids in protein synthesis.
    • It's the backup source of cellular energy‚ after glucose.

Since it supports such vital functions‚ L-glutamine aids greatly in recovery‚ whether from a period of intense physical activity or an injury. It's often recommended to people recovering from surgery or undergoing chemotherapy‚ as well as individuals suffering from gastrointestinal distress. It strengthens the intestinal tract and tones the protective mucous lining. In effect‚ L-glutamine helps the body build its own natural reserves back up‚ so it can heal itself.

Pure Encapsulations’ L-Glutamine Powder is sourced entirely from vegetables‚ and blends easily with juice or water. Dosages can vary; for best results‚ it should be taken in divided doses throughout the day. Follow the recommendation of your health care professional if you have any questions about dosages or uses.
