What is L-Glutamine?
L-glutamine is a non-essential amino acid and is made in our muscle tissue. As this amino acid occurs naturally in protein, which contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass, glutamine is ideal to support your fitness progress. L-glutamine amino acid can be naturally found in food sources such as meat, fish, and eggs, making it tricky for anyone following a vegetarian or vegan diet to get enough from food alone. Even for those who do eat animal products, it can be time-consuming or expensive to get enough from meals alone — making our l-glutamine supplements a great way to stay topped up.

This amino acid can help you to achieve your fitness goals, as glutamine occurs naturally in protein, which helps you grow and maintain muscle. Coming in a variety of formats, our l-glutamine supplements can easily be made part of your routine, no matter how hectic your schedule.
