L-glutamine is a huge favourite within the world of athletics, body building, strength training and any high-intensity activity. Body builders have traditionally used l-glutamine when preparing for a competition and embarking on a restricted-calorie diet in an attempt to restrict muscle-loss and maintain strength levels. Athletes and strength trainers similarly have used l-glutamine to assist recovery and compliment a healthy diet. L-glutamine is an amino acid found in proteins of all life forms. It is classified as a semi-essential or conditionally essential amino acid; it is the most abundant amino acid in the body, and plasma glutamine levels are the highest of any amino acid. L-glutamine is predominantly synthesized and stored in skeletal muscle. The amino acid l-glutamate is metabolised to l-glutamine in a reaction catalysed by the enzyme glutamine synthase, a reaction which, in addition to Llglutamate, requires ammonia, ATP and magnesium.
