Staying active is an important part of your life. Whether its running, hiking, or lifting weights you put a whole lot of effort into staying fit. And as a health-conscious individual, you also go to great lengths to eat the right foods.
Despite your efforts, you still face some issues – recovery after working out is particularly challenging. For a determined athlete like yourself, speedy recovery and good immune health shouldn’t have to be hard. The answer? Fermented L-Glutamine.
What Is Fermented L-Glutamine?
L-Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid that helps you maintain a healthy gut and immune system. It’s referred to as non-essential because your body is able to synthesize it on its own, without external supplementation.
Following long periods of strenuous exercise, however, your body’s L-Glutamine levels lower significantly. This in turn leaves your muscle cells struggling to repair themselves and your immunity low. At this point, L-Glutamine becomes essential – you need to supplement in order to replenish your body’s depleted stores.
Fermented L-Glutamine (which is different from regular L-Glutamine) is a highly digestible form of the amino acid. It’s been bacterially fermented so that it’s easy on the stomach and very much nutritionally dense.
Who Should Take Fermented L-Glutamine and Why?
Anyone who engages in intense exercise (think running, weightlifting, etc.) is susceptible to experiencing drops in their plasma glutamine concentration. The perfect way to restore normal levels is through supplementation.
In fact, according to a recent 2017 study, “carbohydrate and/or glutamine supplementation have shown to be effective on mitigating the stress effects of vigorous exercise on the immune system.” Therefore, anyone wanting to support and maintain a healthy immune system as part of an active lifestyle would benefit from fermented L-Glutamine.
