Everything about L-glutamine - specialist for after training

L-glutamine is on everyone's lips in the fitness world. But what is it all about? We'll tell you everything you need to know about amino acids!

The effects of L-glutamine

Our muscles consist of almost 60% of the essential amino acid L-glutamine. This value underlines the important role of L-glutamine in our body. It is a non-essential amino acid. This means that your body does not necessarily have to take them in through food. The highest concentration of glutamine in your body is found in the muscle cells - the main synthesis site. Among other things, L-glutamine is responsible for water retention in the cells. During physical exertion, such as during training, glutamine causes an increase in cell volume. It thus promotes protein and glycogen formation. L-glutamine also plays a role in nerve and intestinal function.
