Solgar® L-Glutamine 1000 mg Tablets is one of Solgar’s premium-quality
amino acid range products, containing L-Glutamine, an amino acid required
by every muscle in the body.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are needed in several
internal functions of the body. They are classified as “essential”
or “non-essential”, with essential amino acids meaning they
cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet to
maintain good all-round health. Amino acids can be further used by the
body to create hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters, antibodies and nutrient
carriers. A suboptimal intake of the essential amino acids increases the
body’s need for the non-essential Amino Acids either through diet
or supplementation. Foods that increase amino acid intake are meat, beans,
cheese and eggs.
L-Glutamine is the most common of the amino acids and is found in large
amounts in your muscles. In fact, approximately 60% of the total amount
of amino acid in the muscle is glutamine. It is classified as a non-essential
amino acid (e.g. it can be made in the body), but, as it provides fuel
to your muscles, in certain situations the demand for glutamine increases
and our body is not able to produce sufficient amounts. For example, during
intense exercise, glutamine stores are depleted because the body is placed
under stress and muscles and tendons require more of this amino acid.
In this case, to minimize breakdown of muscle, glutamine needs to be obtained
from the diet or through supplementation.
Natural sources of glutamine are grass-fed beef, wild caught fish, cottage
cheese, asparagus and broccoli. Even if you make sure that you include
glutamine rich foods in your diet, or even by topping up your glutamine
levels from using whey powder, it can still be beneficial to take a supplement.
Solgar® L-Glutamine 1000 mg comes in a 1-2 tablets daily dosage.
