Amino acids the building blocks required for growth and repair. Leucine, isoleucine and valine are branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) and three of the nine “essential” amino acids that must be obtained via the diet because they cannot be made by our bodies.
BCAA can be beneficial in helping to reduce muscle soreness when starting a new training program or returning from a period of rest or injury.
Glutamine is the most abundant non-essential amino acid found in the body and has significant biochemical and physiological importance. Despite being a non-essential amino acid, glutamine at times can be “conditionally essential”, thus requiring intake from food or supplements when in state of injury or illness.
Over the past ten years, many studies have concluded that glutamine is effective in treating injuries, burns, traumas and wound healing.
Exercise, which is a form of metabolic stress, can cause a depletion of glutamine in the body. This depletion is dependent upon the length and intensity of one’s training; therefore, in order to decrease the negative side effects attributed to glutamine depletion, many athletes are resorting to glutamine supplements.
Consult your primary care provider or physician before taking this supplement.
Studies and research on amino acids and glutamine will be added soon.
