L-Glutamine is an amino acid produced in your body. It is in fact the most common amino acid in your muscles, making up 61% of your skeletal tissue. It is also one of the 20 amino acids encoded by the standard genetic code. It isn’t considered one the “essential 8” amino acids, but it can become situationally essential in times of intense athletic training or gastrointestinal disease.

Thousands of experts agree that L-Glutamine is one of the most beneficial supplements ever discovered.


There are many, many advantages and benefits that can be derived from taking Pure Pharmaceutical Grade L-Glutamine Amino Acid.


The most common use of this supplement is for muscle growth by athletes and bodybuilders.  This is due to such a large component of our amino acid make-up being l-glutamine.  Supplementing our diet when working-out can greatly assist with protein synthesis.  It is not a steroid and is naturally occurring within our bodies. When the body is depleted of this amino acid during intense workouts, muscle wasting can occur.   This can cause tiredness and slower recovery periods.

Supplementation with L-Glutamine Increases Growth Hormone levels and prevention of muscle breakdown and allows the recovery period to be reduced enhancing the athlete’s strength program by helping to repair the muscles quicker and increase consistency. L-Glutamine is not a miracle cure for laziness or a quick fix, but as a supplement, it enhances results of our workout effort by allowing the body the much needed amino acids for lean muscle growth and healthy maintenance.

L-Glutamine levels fall significantly after training, so people who are in hard training or workout should supplement their diet with L-Glutamine.


By assisting cell hydration, cell volume is enhanced thereby reducing recovery time from sporting activity, injury and wounds.  Muscle damage caused by intense workout or injury is repaired more effectively where the cell volume and hydration levels are aided by this very important amino acid.


L-Glutamine has the ability to increase Human Growth Hormone levels (HGH). Clinical studies have shown that L-Glutamine elevates your natural HGH levels by over 400%.

HGH helps increase lean body mass while decreasing body fat.

Because of its ability to increase protein synthesis, L-Glutamine is an excellent supplement for increasing lean muscle mass. Protein synthesis controls how much protein your body is able to digest and absorb, therefore increasing protein synthesis will dramatically accelerate muscle growth.

Increasing HGH levels provides numerous benefits for men & women of all ages. Supplementing your intake with L-Glutamine can massively increase levels of naturally occurring Human Growth Hormone (HGH). Metabolism is accelerated due to increased levels of HGH which allows the more efficient processing of foods and enhancing the efficient metabolism of fats.  This leads to an improvement in fat reduction and the building of lean muscle, with the added bonus of prevention of muscle breakdown.


A common ailment of over people over 40 is a condition called Diverticulitis.  L-Glutamine has been effective in reducing the severity and incidence of this very painful and debilitating ailment which can thereby reduce the potential risk of colon cancer.

Ulcers and other intestinal issues respond well and its effect on the digestive system boosts the overall immune system. Way back as far as 1987 a study found that 2 million US residents suffered from Diverticulitis with another 25,000 diagnosed each year,  3000 sufferers die from this painful condition each year. Consult your physician if you feel extreme abdominal pain. 


students find that the use of L-Glutamine improved concentration and helped with stress and anxiety of intense study periods.  It has the ability to calm moods, improve low mental and physical energy levels, increase alertness and helps maintain interest in the subject at hand. L-Glutamine presence within the brain and spinal fluid is 10 to 15 times more concentrated than in the blood, assisting with focus, alertness, memory and intellectual performance.


By taking L-Glutamine, it can help suppress or curb the sometimes uncontrollable cravings for alcohol or sugary foods.  It does this by helping the body to suppress insulin and thereby stabilising blood sugar levels.  This reduces the body’s draw upon muscle mass to maintain blood sugar levels in times of low calorie intake or strenuous exercise. In a similar way, alcohol cravings can be reduced and in extreme cases has led to the cure of alcoholism. As a result of the reduced cravings of sugary foods or alcohol, weight loss can occur as a fringe benefit.  Similarly, with reduced fat and improved lean muscle mass, caloric metabolism is improved.  This is due to muscle being a higher burner of calories than fat.

Now you can understand why L-Glutamine is one of the most effective supplements in the world.

Take 5-10 grammes per day. Take with warm water with Glucose added or pure fruit juice.


Can be taken anytime of the day on training days. Ideally take within the Golden Hour (1 hour after training) re-hydrate with plain water first, then take 100% Pure L-Glutamine Amino Acid, then take your protein or Muscle Mass Gain drinks, all within the golden hour.  For convenience, the L-Glutamine can be added to your shake.

The most commonly available products are either in powdered form or tablets.  For best results, an ongoing and regular supplement 2 to 3 times daily is most effective.  Spread across the day at breakfast, before/after a workout and at bedtime is the most usual timing.  For heavy training periods or bodybuilding, between 5 to 15grams per day is common.
