Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid present in muscle tissue

Glutamine supplementation can promote recovery and emphasize muscle anabolism.

Unfortunately, a large part of L-Glutamine taken in free form does not reach the bloodstream. Up to 85% of an oral dose of glutamine is used by the intestine, liver and immune system.

It’s what scientists call the “glutamine paradox“. This problem can be solved with the use of glutamine peptide. This form of glutamine is bound in peptides (a chain of amino acids), to allow better transport in the bloodstream and muscle tissue.

> Hydro Glutamine Peptides is 100% dipeptide glutamine obtained by hydrolysis, without sugars, without carbohydrates.

The hydrolysis process allows to obtain better quality, more digestible and bioavailable peptides.

Absorption speed is essential after training. That’s why two versions of Hydro Glutamine Peptides have been provided: flavored and neutral (in this case to be used together with a fast-absorbing protein such as VB Whey 104 9.8 or Whey Protein Smoothie).


> Why is glutamine considered a “semi-essential” amino acid?

Glutamine started being used as a supplement following the discovery that it had the property of limiting the speed of proteolytic reactions in traumatized and physiologically stressed patients.

In a sense, even intense athletic or physical activity creates decompensation on the muscular level, and it was concluded that glutamine can also be useful to healthy subjects, such as athletes who perform performances of strength and therefore need large muscle masses, with the aim of maintaining an anabolic cellular state.

In fact, intense and frequent exercise programs often produce a state of energy deficiency in the athlete that usually accompanies the demolition of muscle tissue proteins, causing a drop in the mass so painstakingly gained.

> 60% of free glutamine in the human body is contained in the muscle tissue.

During physical activity, especially if intense and prolonged, there is a drastic drop in the plasma concentration of this important amino acid.

Furthermore, being an extremely important factor for the proper functioning of the immune system, it has been hypothesized that the increase in upper respiratory tract infections in professional athletes was due precisely to its substantial drop after performance.

Glutamine can therefore follow two completely different metabolic pathways: either trigger anabolic processes (for example protein synthesis, cell division), or be used by lymphocytes.

At this point, the organism, in order to survive in stressful situations, finds itself having to choose between immune efficiency and having a powerful muscle mass.

The demand for both plasma and muscle glutamine therefore increases considerably and the rate of cellular re-synthesis is unable to cope with what is consumed.

That is why glutamine has been classified as “conditionally essential” amino acid, since the increase in its contribution has the function of restoring immune activity without demolishing the “reserves” stored in muscle proteins.

However, it should be remembered that food supplements are created with the specific purpose of complementing an otherwise unbalanced diet in the supply of certain nutrients, so it is not possible to achieve a certain result simply by using some “miraculous” mixture.

The true athlete, therefore, follows the program of physical exercises with discipline, interspersing them with adequate rest and nourishing himself with frequent meals, paying attention to his precise physiological needs, which can also imply deficiencies of non-essential substances such as glutamine.

It is also important to note that the physiological needs for nutrients vary over time, so it is necessary to know when the muscle needs it most.

> How is Glutamine Dipeptide different from that in “L” form?

Glutamine peptide is better absorbed than glutamine in free form (thanks to the presence of peptides that allow it to overcome the digestive tract) and is also more stable in solution. Several studies have shown how dipeptide glutamine promotes the increase of glycogen.

> When is the best time to take Glutamine Dipeptide?

Immediately after an intense session of physical activity, because the glutamine reserves in the muscle can decrease by up to 40%.

In very intense periods it may be useful to take hydro glutamine peptides before going to bed.
