Glutamine is a glucogenic (glucose creating), nonessential amino acid that has multiple roles in the body. Glutamine is synthesized mainly in skeletal muscle and the liver and acts as a “nitrogen shuttle” between organs, a fuel for cells of the immune system and intestines, and a precursor for nucleotide synthesis.
Glutamine is also a powerful cell volumizer. An increase in cell volume, also called cell swelling, stimulates anabolic pathways (synthesis of proteins and glycogen) and inhibits catabolic pathways (protein degradation). Recent findings suggest that glutamine content in skeletal muscle and other tissues appears to have a regulatory role in whole body protein synthesis. Glutamine levels inside muscle govern protein synthesis and nitrogen balance and therefore support muscle growth.
During times of stress, such as exercise, glutamine levels in the skeletal muscle are depleted. This glutamine released from skeletal muscle is derived from muscle proteins, the intramuscular free amino acid pool, and newly synthesized glutamine. The newly synthesized glutamine is created by using BCAAs obtained from muscle protein breakdown. Restoring glutamine levels after exercise is vital to recovery and recuperation.
