L- Glutamine

Supplement with L-glutamine. This amino acid has been found to help reduce, and even eliminate, cravings by helping to steady blood sugar. Add 500 milligrams three times a day with meals and an extra dose when a craving hits. Taking as little as a quarter teaspoon at the onset of a sugar craving should stop it in its tracks.Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in your muscles - over 61% of skeletal muscle is Glutamine. Glutamine consists of 19% nitrogen, making it the primary transporter of nitrogen into your muscle cells.


L-Glutamine is an amino acid produced in your body. However it can be become depleted in times of illness, intense athletic training or gastrointestinal disease.

This powder can easily be mixed into juices or water, or protein shakes.

There are many benefits to using this supplement:

Build Muscle

Because our muscles are made up in such large portion of Glutamine, supplementing this amino acid can greatly help with protein synthesis. It does this in two ways. First, when the body is low on glutamine levels, intensive workouts can cause muscle wasting and cause you to tire much more quickly. Supplementing with glutamine allows your muscles to fight just a little bit longer, ultimately helping boost your strength. The addition of extra glutamine to the system also of course helps with repairing muscles after your exercise.

In order to gain lean muscle mass, a healthy diet and consistent exercise are needed.

Cell Volume and Hydration

By helping our cells maintain a healthy volume and hydration level, glutamine can actually decrease recovery time from wounds and burns, just as it helps to repair muscle more effectively.

Increased Growth Hormone

Studies have shown that Glutamine supplementing can drastically increase levels of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in the body. In fact, some have shown increases in as much as 400%. This helps with multiple things. For one thing, HGH increases lead to an increase in metabolism. This increase in metabolism makes you able to process food much more quickly, as well as burn off fat cells more efficiently. HGH is also a very critical component in building muscle.

Energy Source for Immune System

Glutamine can act as a primary energy source for the immune system. By doing this, it boosts your overall ability to fight infection and disease.

Gastrointestinal Health

Glutamine is absolutely critical to gastrointestinal health. Studies have shown it fixes such problems as ulcers and leaky gut, sometimes very quickly. It also helps overall with your digestive system, as it is one of the most important nutrients for your intestine.

Increased Brain Function

As an innate neurotransmitter, L-Glutamine can help the different parts of the brain pass on information, improving recollection, attentiveness and concentration.

Blood Sugar Levels

Glutamine can help the body suppress insulin, and by doing so keep blood sugar levels stable. By doing this, the body needs to use up less muscle mass to keep blood sugar levels healthy, which can be a big problem for those on low calorie diets.

Decrease Alcohol and Sugar Cravings

Due to the blood sugar stabilizing effects of glutamine, supplementing the amino acid can in fact help curb cravings. This is especially important for those people that have issues with occasionally cheating on an otherwise healthy diet.
