Glutamine (L-Glutamine) is an amino acid, one of the twenty amino acids. Amino acids are organic compounds that are characterized by a specific group (e.g., a carboxyl group or other) that is specifically attached to the central carbon atom. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of important molecules in our body (polypeptides, proteins, etc.).
L-Glutamine is a semi-essential amino acid that is simultaneously synthesized naturally in our body (the body can produce it on its own) but in limited (insufficient) amounts. Therefore, upon depletion of already synthesized (or produced by the body) L-glutamine, it becomes indispensable. L-Glutamine deficiency can be difficult to address through food intake or by re-generating satisfactory levels. That is why L-glutamine is a semi-essential element.
Increases the supply of oxygen and hydrogen to the muscles
L-Glutamine is a particularly important element, indispensable in the construction of important molecules (polypeptides, proteins, and others). Glutamine increases the supply of oxygen and hydrogen to muscle cells and partially reduces the formation of lactic acid in the muscles. Therefore, L-Glutamine plays an important role as a regulator, balancing the synthesis and breakdown of proteins and other important elements. In addition, glutamine is extremely important for isolated processes, such as protein synthesis. L-Glutamine promotes the synthesis of proteins and respectively the neutralization of catabolic (destructive) processes in the body. In other words, it simultaneously prevents the breakdown of muscle mass and helps to enhance anabolic processes in the body.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in our body. This is the reason why one of the most important functions of glutamine is immunomodulatory.
Glutamine is a major source of "fuel" for immune cells, including white blood cells (NCBI).
Although its presence is essential for the immune system, its depletion in the body is relatively easy. This happens in the presence of more serious diseases, pregnancy, physical activity, diets, and others.
If the body's glutamine deficiency is greater than its ability to produce it, the body responds accordingly. In the case of glutamine deficiency, the so-called natural mechanism, which means that our body can begin processes for the breakdown of protein stores. Therefore, a decrease in muscle mass can be seen so that more of this amino acid can be generated to make up for its total deficiency in the body (NCBI).
Promotes normal intestinal function and reduces "bad" appetite
One of the things that prove the gentle action of this amino acid on the body is that it balances intestinal function. In addition to the already listed benefits for the body, L-glutamine has the ability to help normalize gastrointestinal disorders. In addition, L-glutamine has the properties to reduce the appetite for sweet and harmful foods, which contributes to achieving the desired figure.
