Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. Though not considered an "essential" amino acid, it is without question a "conditional" amino acid. There are 3 unique yet interwoven factors that can dramatically increase demand for glutamine within the human body; these include promoting muscle exertion and recovery, immune support and gastrointestinal health.*
Stress is the ultimate enemy of the human mind and body. Glutamine is no exception to the ravages of stress. The stress hormone cortisol is "catabolic" leading to breaking down the body and tissues. Whereas, the goal is an "anabolic" building mode. No matter how chill and no worries attitude you may have, living in the modern helter skelter world wears down even the most easy-going person.
Working yourself to sickness does happen, whether it's overtraining while being insufficiently fueled with inadequate nutrients and rest or life stress.
When an individual gets seriously ill, they can experience a drop in plasma glutamine levels of up to 58% during critical illness and these levels have been shown to remain low upwards of 3 weeks.* (1) So needless to say, if you have been fighting a cold, your muscles and performance can pay.
When working out, glutamine is rapidly released from muscle stores to sustain the gastrointestinal tract, allowing absorptive cells lining the intestine to perform as intended. (1)
Consuming and absorbing performance optimizing nutrients is like a relay race, if you can't pass the baton successfully, the race is over before you cross the finish line. If you suffer from "a lack luster" GI tract when it comes to performance, it will become a rate limiting factor for you reaching your full potential. Why? Because you will be under-fueled, relative to your strategic efforts to peak your potential with a great diet and supplementation routine.
