This powder can easily be mixed into juices or water, or protein shakes.
There are many benefits to using this supplement:
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.

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.
