Amino Acids are used by the body to build proteins. Proteins are essential for the formulation of cells and are also involved in the biochemical structure of hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters and antibodies. Body Science Glutamine is naturally fermented pharmaceutical L-Glutamine only! This is pure, free form L-glutamine with absolutely no additives, fillers or excipients. That means no microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, silica or other fillers, just 100% pure active ingredient meaning 100% pure performance.

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the blood plasma and skeletal muscle (Antonio et al., 1999). Glutamine is also one of the major fuel sources of the gut and numerous cells of the immune system. Glutamine is produced in the body, but under certain circumstances such as injury, surgery or overtraining the body may not be able to synthesise sufficient glutamine to keep up with the demand (Miller, 1999). Under these conditions supplementary glutamine may be of benefit.

Adequate Glutamine stores are required for maximum growth and can have significant benefit in the management of muscle tissue during exercise stress. Body Science L-Glutamine is a fuel source for numerous cells of the immune system and may help to reduce infection rates in athletes during strenuous competition and training.

When dietary intake is inadequate, supplementary Glutamine may help spare muscle protein. Glutamine may also increase the body’s cellular hydration status, which may be an anabolic signal. Body Science L-Glutamine is rice fermented ensuring maximum enrichment of the bioactive compounds of Glutamine.

Glutamine use is certainly not limited to athletes. Research is continuously being released that is facilitating our scientific understanding of what physiological effects Glutamine has and how it can best be used. At present it does appear that Glutamine is best consumed during periods of stress. Stress can arise in a number of forms and this may include injury, work related stressors, or excessive physical activity such as seen in overtraining syndrome. Consequently Glutamine may be just as likely to offer immune protection and other beneficial physiological effects to the time challenged executive as to the elite athlete.
