What is glutamine?
Glutamine is a naturally occurring amino acid that can be produced by your body, but is one of the most important supplements you need for physical training.

This makes glutamine one of the most important supplements there is for those who visit the gym regularly or are bodybuilders. It has anti-catabolic effects to reduce muscle wasting and improve muscle anabolism, helps to hydrate muscle cells, improves immune function, boost growth hormone levels and increase glycogen storage.
