optimum glutamineIf total body health is your goal, then you should definitely be supplementing your diet with glutamine. Glutamine is a supplement we strongly recommend here at BodipHat. Glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the body. Because glutamine is so prevalent, it is also very versatile in what it does in the body. Glutamine is known mostly as an immune system booster but also has been known to aid in muscle building, fight of muscle wasting in burn victims and A.I.D.S. patients, aid in gut health and digestion, and even repair ulcers and stomach lining. On top of all these benefits glutamine has also been shown to aid with fat loss. As I mentioned earlier glutamine helps fight of muscle wasting. This is due to a “cell-volumizing” effect that glutamine has. Cell volumizing is when a cell expands in size due to its ability to absorb more water and nutrients. This reduces muscle tissue breakdown and helps keep your muscles full. This in turn helps create a better “pump”. This is beneficial because a lot of times when dieting or on a strict nutritional plan it is hard to maintain that full muscle feeling, sometimes due to muscle wasting. Because protein is so important to muscles glutamine also plays another important role. Glutamine nourishes muscle, gut and immune cells directly, reducing protein loss, resulting in spared muscle tissue. Glutamine has also been known to fight off certain food and sugar cravings, which can be a huge factor when dieting. If glutamine is something that sounds of interest, you should probably use a dosing protocol of:
