Natures Aid L-Glutamine 500mg
L-Glutamine is an amino acid. There are more than 50 Amino Acids which have been identified by scientists and each is a little different. Amino Acids are used to build protein. Protein helps to support the maintenance of muscle mass and normal bones.
Only 20 amino acids are used in the human body. 9 are classed as Essential Amino Acids. This means that the body cannot make them, we must get them from our diet, by eating protein rich foods. The ‘essential’ amino acids are: Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan & Valine. Other amino acids are classed as ‘conditional amino acids’ this means that generally they are not essential, except in times of illness & stress. ‘Conditional’ Amino Acids include: Arginine, Cysteine, Glutamine, Glycine, Proline, Serine & Tyrosine. When taking an amino acid supplement, it is suggested that you take it away from food – either half an hour before you eat or at least an hour after.
Each capsule contains 500mg L-Glutamine. These capsules are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
