Glutamine is considered a ‘conditionally essential’ amino acid. This means that, under normal circumstances, the body is able to make all the glutamine required, but during exercise or at other times of metabolic stress (injury and illness) the body’s ability to make glutamine may not match demands, and provision in the diet then becomes essential.

Increasing dietary intake of glutamine through supplementation has many benefits for the athletes. Firstly and most importantly, it helps to maintain positive nitrogen balance, an environment that promotes muscle growth within the body. Glutamine also promotes cellular hydration. When it is stored in the muscle cell, it causes water uptake into the cell, which helps encourage protein synthesis and glycogen storage.
