    Health Notes

    Glutamine

    Glutamine
    • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
    • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
    • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

    Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

    For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

    This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

    Used for AmountWhy
    Pre- and Post-Surgery Health
    20 grams daily3 stars[3 stars]
    Studies have shown that using glutamine-enriched formulas after surgery increased immune cell activity, shortened hospital stays, improved nutritional status, and reduced infections.
    Athletic Performance and Post-Exercise Infection
    5 grams after exercise, then again two hours later2 stars[2 stars]
    The amino acid glutamine may benefit athlete's immune systems. Double-blind trials giving athletes glutamine reported 81% having no subsequent infection compared with 49% in the placebo group.
    Diarrhea
    136 mg per pound of body weight2 stars[2 stars]
    Glutamine appears to be beneficial for diarrhea by improving the health of the intestinal lining, rather than by affecting the immune system.
    HIV and AIDS Support and Preservation of Lean Body Mass

    (Arginine, HMB)
    1.5 grams of HMB, 7 grams of L-glutamine, and 7 grams of L-arginine twice per day2 stars[2 stars]
    The combination of glutamine, arginine, and HMB may prevent loss of lean body mass in people with AIDS-associated wasting.
    Immune Function and Post-Exercise Infection
    Refer to label instructions 2 stars[2 stars]
    A study giving athletes glutamine, an amino acid important for immune system function, reported significantly fewer infections with glutamine.
    Alcohol Withdrawal

    (L-Tyrosine, Multivitamin, Phenylalanine, Tryptophan)
    Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
    In double-blind research, alcoholics treated with L-tyrosine combined with DLPA (D,L-phenylalanine), L-glutamine, prescription L-tryptophan, plus a multivitamin had reduced withdrawal symptoms and decreased stress.
    Alcohol Withdrawal
    Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
    Animal and double-blind human research has shown that this amino acid reduces desire for alcohol and anxiety levels.
    Gastritis
    Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
    The amino acid glutamine is a main energy source for cells in the stomach and may increase blood flow to this region.
    HIV and AIDS Support
    Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
    The amino acid glutamine is needed for the synthesis of glutathione, an important antioxidant that is frequently depleted in people with HIV and AIDS.
    Peptic Ulcer
    Refer to label instructions 1 star[1 star]
    Glutamine, an amino acid, is the main energy source for cells that line the small intestine and stomach. Supplementing with it may help people overcome peptic ulcers.

    Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (protein building block) in the body and is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. Glutamine is converted to glucose when more glucose is required by the body as an energy source. It serves as a source of fuel for cells lining the intestines. Without it, these cells waste away. It is also used by white blood cells and is important for immune function.

        Comments about GNC Pro Performance® L-Glutamine:

        It works well, especially helps recovery after tough lifting. Kind of annoying to have to take 2 pills though; I've tried other brands that only require one pill, simply because of dosing.
        No real complaints though.

        Comments about GNC Pro Performance® L-Glutamine:

        I find that regular use of L-Glutamine means I am in better-than-average overall health, so I take it every day - even on non-workout days. I also find that taking L-Glutamine before and after workouts results in more energy to power through tough routines, and then faster recovery/muscle building afterward.

            i love this product its great for the price i mean i expected for this L- Glutamine caplet to be around the 20-30 dollar range for the way it works man..I'm still surprised thats its been on the market for awhile and the price is soo affordable ..This is great for muscle gains, weight loss, endurance, and gets you sweating show you that you are working hard. I'd Recommend this to anyone who wants benefits of muscle gains, and weight loss

                I started taking one pill about thirty minutes before workout and taking my 4500mg powder form after workout along with my other ingredients of my after workout cocktail and have notice a very significant difference in my muscle density and vascularity. I mean my vains are popping if you know what i mean. It is deffinatly a good little pre-curser.

                Comments about GNC Pro Performance® L-Glutamine:

                i tried this product a while and i loved it from the start, first off, its a amino acid so theres no side effects or anything, its just like eating 10 stakes all at once. The other thing that caught my eyes was the price, it was a nice [$] price and it was buy one get one free. that was amazing, but anyway, i like this product a lot. i've seen my muscles improve in 2 days. It's a amazing product, and i started to show muscle details and i was starting to get vascular, it is a amazing feeling. Of course theres a catch to everything. There are two bad things about this product, but there VERY minor. the first one is that you are literally drenched in sweat. It makes your body look like u just to a smelly shower, and the second bad thing that happens is that when u swallow the pill, your adams apple hurts a lot, and i have to drink a whole water bottle to make it stop itchoverall, i think this is a good, affordable, healthy product thats worth buying considering there's a buy 1 get 1 sale and its only [$] the pills are not bad to swallow despite the pain, but ill swallow an anchor just to get bigger muscles, also it makes you gain 1 pound per 2-3 days. That i like the most, so if your trying to lose weight, this isn't really the product you would take. I hope my message has inspired you to go out and get the product, you will not regret it
