This Glutamine product was designed for Body building and sports nutrition. Glutamine, when paired with exercise, promotes lean muscle mass and cell growth.
Brain function is dependent upon glucose levels. When there is a lack of brain fuel, the following are possibilities:
- Hypoglycemic (craves sugar)
- Alcoholic (craves alcohol)
These occur because the brain is basically “starving.” Fortunately recent research indicates that L-Glutamine can act as a substitute for glucose and prevent the three occurrences listed above happening. As a matter of fact, L-Glutamine (converted to Glutamic Acid) is the only source of energy the brain has outside of glucose.
Hypoglycemia: On a college campus, two groups of students were allowed free access to vending machines with high sugar foods. One group was given L-Glutamine while the other was given a placebo. The placebo group consumed four times as much sweets as the L-Glutamine group.
Alcohol: In a controlled study a group of alcoholics were supplemented with L-Glutamine without their knowledge (L-Glutamine is odorless). A reduction in alcohol consumption was seen in 77% of the cases.
