What Is L-Glutamine?
Glutamine is an amino acid. Amino acids are molecules that play many roles in the body.
Their main purpose is to serve as building blocks for proteins.
Proteins are crucial to the organs. They also serve other functions, such as transporting substances in the blood and fighting off harmful viruses and bacteria.
Like many other amino acids, it exists in two different forms: L-glutamine and D-glutamine.
They are almost identical but have a slightly different molecular arrangement.
The form found in foods and supplements is L-glutamine. Some supplements list it as L-glutamine, but others simply use the broader term glutamine.
While L-glutamine is used to make proteins and perform other functions, D-glutamine appears to be relatively unimportant in living organisms.
L-glutamine can be produced naturally in your body. In fact, it is the most abundant amino acid in the blood and other body fluids.
However, there are times when the glutamine needs of your body are greater than its ability to produce it.
Therefore, it’s considered a conditionally essential amino acid, meaning that it must be obtained from the diet under certain conditions, such as injury or illness.
Also, glutamine is an important molecule for the immune system and intestinal health.

After intense training, glutamine levels are heavily depleted. Glutaflex can enhance muscle repair and immune recovery through its action on transporting nitrogen to muscle cells.
Glutaflex can be used by the body as a primary energy source, which can assist in reducing muscle wastage. In addition Glutaflex can also be used by the body as a primary source of energy for the immune system and directly for energy when glycogen levels are low, which strengthens immune system function and recovery. This is particularly important when dieting.
Glutaflex is 100% pure Glutamine with no fillers, and is manufactured here in Australia.
We recommend a dosage of between 5 and 10g (one to two scoops).
