Another great benefit is that it may help increase growth hormone, which benefits bodybuilders and those looking to turn back the clock of aging. Growth hormone is one of the body's most anabolic (muscle building) hormones. A study of 9 healthy athletes in a study shown in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed a 430% increase in growth hormone within 90 minutes of taking a 2-gram oral dose consumed after a light breakfast.
Glutamine regulates cellular metabolism and acid-base balance. It serves as fuel for cells of the intestine and immune system. It's a precursor for glutathione (a powerful antioxidant) and GABA (an important neurotransmitter). It also regulates cell volume and is a key building block of protein and muscle. When you take glutamine, you provide your body with one of the most important fuels it needs to stay healthy.*
If you're serious about building muscle, or competing at peak condition, supplementing your diet with additional glutamine is vital. Following intense training, plasma glutamine levels drop and can take as many as six days to recover to normal. Six days when your body may be losing muscle and strength!
Quick restoration of normal glutamine levels supports maximal recovery and may help your body in the building and maintenance of muscle. Research demonstrates that supplementing your diet with glutamine supports an increase in protein synthesis, is crucial for the transport of nitrogen into your muscles, and can actually volumize muscle.
In fact, studies show that taking as little as 2 grams of glutamine supports an elevation in circulating growth hormone levels by over 400%. Increasing growth hormone levels has been directly correlated with increased lean body mass, increased fat oxidation and improved strength.
