GLUTA +is a Glutamine supplement, a non essential amino acid used to increase sports performance and muscle recovery.
Glutamine is an amino acid that the body synthesizes autonomously starting from the Arginine, Ornithine and Proline amino acids. It is the most abundant amino acid in the human body and represents about 2/3 of the amino acids in the muscles. It is considered a conditionally essential amino acid since, even if it is synthesized by the body, in some situations it must be taken via the diet. At the end of the exercise, in particular if prolonged, the levels of both plasma and muscle glutamine undergo a decrease that would often require hours to be re-established via the endogenous production of the amino acid. In cases like this one, its supplementation via supplements is particularly important. In fact, Glutamine stimulates protein synthesis, promoting an increase in muscle mass and water, amino acids and other substances with an anti-catabolic effect entering the cells.
During the recovery period, it favours the storage of muscle glycogen and can stimulate the secretion of GH. Glutamine is considered as being able to fight the overtraining syndrome (chronic fatigue, loss in weight, loss of appetite, minor infections, nausea, depression) and to play the role of energy support in quickly multiplying cells such as lymphocytes and macrophages, contributing to support the immune system. In the central nervous system, it is converted into glutamate that is the most important and widespread central excitatory neurotransmitter. Just as important is the Glutamine ability to detoxify and regulate the blood and urine pH with a buffer effect.
Glutamine intervenes in the formation of glutathione that is the most powerful antioxidant our body produces. This consists of glycine, cysteine and glutamic acid, derived indeed from Glutamine. Apart from these specific functions, Glutamine plays a role transporting nitrogen between cells, therefore helping the organic and metabolic functions that are accelerated during physical exercise or pathological stress. Finally, Glutamine is involved also in collagen synthesis that preserves particularly stressed tissues and promotes the recovery of the traumatized ones.
