Glutamine is a semi-essential amino acid. This means that your body makes it but can also get it from non-body substances. Heavy exertion exhausts your body and can increase the acidity in your muscles, which can lead to muscle damage, which of course you do not want. The glutamine supplements - which can be done before, during or after the workout - contributes to muscle recovery so that you can get the most out of your workout.
You can get glutamine as a supplement in multiple forms. Examples include glutamine powder, glutamine capsules and even glutamine chewable tablets. Of course, everyone has his or her preferences, but glutamine powder is our best-selling variant. This is because the powder dissolves perfectly in water or another sports drink, so that you can drink it easily during your workout.
Glutamine side effects
As far as is known, the use of glutamine powder or capsules has no side effects or negative effects on your health. Of course, we always advise you to keep to the general daily quantity that is prescribed for each product.
