Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid. The muscles are the major tissues which produce glutamine for the entire body. This glutamine is further forwarded into the circulation to maintain the levels of plasma and provide other tissues with much needed glutamine.
Okay – hold on a second. Why is glutamine so important for the body anyway? And why do most of the tissues inside the body need it?
For starters, glutamine is capable of promoting anabolic conditions in the muscle cells. This helps the muscles increase the rate at which protein synthesis is carried out. High glutamine levels directly portray the introduction of other amino acids into the cells. Amino acids, which are considerably essential for the body, can’t travel into the muscle cells on their own, and they most often require a transport system. Glutamine provides them with this much needed transport.
Apart from this, glutamine also helps in one major factor related to exercise. Most gym goers walk a fine line in overtraining and spiraling downwards in their routine. This is where the importance of glutamine is really felt. Why? Because overtraining is known to occur in most cases when your body is low on glutamine!
