Glutamine is a versatile amino acid that is very common in the body. Unlike other amino acids, glutamine has no less than two amino groups. All other amino acids can be made through glutamic acid. Glutamine can be synthesized in the body from other substances. Under certain circumstances, however, glutamine is an essential amino acid. Like when the body’s production of glutamine is not sufficient. The body is not always able to fill the glutamine stocks during fasting, illness, and heavy physical exertions*.
The muscles contain more than half of the total glutamine in the body*. Glutamine is a source of nitrogen for the muscles. The body also uses glutamine as an energy source. During intense exercise the body uses large amounts of glutamine. After an intense training session a period of several hours is required in order to bring the glutamine levels back to normal. Adding L-Glutamine to the regular diet offers a solution for many (professional) athletes. It is an easy way to ingest an ample amount of this special amino acid. The L-form is the natural form of amino acids.

Since December 2012 we are only allowed to publish product data sheets and product information that contain approved health claims by a European scientific organization – as a result of the European regulations on nutrient claims. This limits Virtuoos’ ability to provide information, as many health effects of diets and dietary supplements are (still) not recognized by this organization as sufficiently scientifically substantiated.
