Assists with recovery. Up to 70% of muscle tissue is made up of glutamic acid. Replenishment of glutamine (also known as L-glutamine which is the absorbable form) can assist with the maintenance of lean muscle tissue thus replenishing glutamic acid. As an anti-catabolic agent (muscle sparing/preventing the breakdown of muscle tissue), it is also well regarded for its intestinal track function and assistance it provides with digestion and absorbability. Pure Glutamine is naturally extracted via rice, which means it is absorbed at a much higher rate than synthetically derived glutamine.
Specific studies conducted on the human respiratory system show that glutamine strengthens our respiratory system. As a powerful anti-oxidant, glutamine is often used to boost the immune system and may be particularly useful under stressful conditions.
