Product Details

Glutamine's most important function is as an energy source.  Glutamine is also an important muscle-building amino acid and helps to replenish muscle glycogen after exercise.  Without sufficient glutamine muscles begin to atrophy.  Regular glutamine supplementation will therefore insure a healthy intestinal lining which will alleviate leaky gut syndrome and associated allergies.  Glutamine is also beneficial for the liver as it aids the removal of waste products associated with fat metabolism and thus prevents fatty build up of liver tissue.

Regular supplementation with glutamine will also strengthen the immune system and reduce the rate of infections especially in cases of strenuous exercise, viral and beacterial infections and sever stress.  In the brain, glutamine forms the substrate for the neurotransmitters glutamate and GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) and is also an important energy source for the central nervous system.

Glutamine also plays an important role in the regulation of blood sugar levels in the body and helps to prevent hypoglycemis.  Other nutrients added to the formula such as vitamin C, vitamin B6 and folic acid are all supportive of the various roles of glutamine and act synergistically to enhance the overall effect.

Like all the Metabole's powder products no artificial ingredients are included in the formulation which works together as a synergistic whole.

Glutamine Formulation is in a powder form that can be taken to suit individual requirements.  Powders are already in a digested form with ascorbic acid being the end product which gives rapid absorption and optimally metabolised.
