What is L-Glutamine? - Ajinomoto

A product that generates several benefits, this important amino acid (60% of all aminos in blood circulation) doesn’t do anything drastic but works rather smoothly in the body at many levels.


The usage of glutamine in the Fitness market comes from its medical application (severe burns, dehydration, extreme catabolism etc…).


More often than not, we find glutamine in its original L- form (the letter L being a statement of its natural source) in meat, eggs, dairy products, spinach and also in nutritional supplements.

Known as a circumstantial amino acid, glutamine exerts its anti-catabolic properties in direct proportion to the stress imposed on the body!


Consequently, the frequency and the intensity of your training sessions (unconditional criterias of progress) will dictate its usage…


Are you into Cross-Fit, Boot Camp, Iron Man, biking, boxing, weight training with Drop Sets and Super Sets?  Or maybe you’re on a low carb diet?

* An hour and a half after bedtime the body starts producing HGH hormones (best fat burner there is) and glutamine helps maximize its production when taken on an empty stomach.
