La glutamine, à quoi ça sert ?

Glutamine, what is it good for?

Glutamine or L- glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the blood and in the muscles.

It has many features, among them: 

  • He  plays a role in protein synthesis. 
  • Maintains acid-base balance in the body 
  • Protects the intestinal wall

Where is glutamine found?

>> In  certain products of animal origin (meat, fish, eggs and dairy products) and in certain products of plant origin (cereals, pulses, cabbage, spinach, parsley, dried fruit). 

What does this amino acid do?

Glutamine is particularly useful for ensuring the proper functioning of the mucous membranes and helping to maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall. 

He is very  indicated to protect the intestines and fight against certain diseases such as: Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome.

This amino acid therefore ensures the proper functioning of the immune system.

Although the body normally produces all the glutamine it needs, a deficiency can occur during extreme physiological stress, or during intense regular physical training: in such cases, immune resistance can be damaged, as well as the integrity of the wall of the intestines, which can cause the appearance of various infections. 

Overtraining can, among other things, cause a glutamine deficiency, which is why athletes who are not supplemented with glutamine are more likely to develop intestinal disorders because the glutamine contained in food is not enough to meet the needs of their muscles. and their intestinal cells.

Athlete in recovery

On the other hand, glutamine helps physical recovery: indeed, during a sports session, the efforts made lead to a significant drop in glycogen levels: 

  • L-glutamine promotes the storage of muscle glycogen, just like glucose. 
  • It helps reduce recovery time. 
  • This  amino acid helps in rebuilding muscle mass and restoring the body's energy stores.

Glutamine, yes, but quality!

When to take glutamine?

For athletes, doses of glutamine are normally taken 3 times a day : before training for better endurance and more energy and just after training for better recovery. A dose can be added at bedtime.

As you will have understood, glutamine therefore plays an essential role in the proper functioning of our immune system, in particular thanks to its protective action on our intestines, which is the key organ of our immune system.

Accompanied by a healthy diet and regular physical activity, you will thus gather all the necessary assets in your physical progress.
