Glutamine

Called a conditionally essential amino acid in the bodybuilding community because of its high content in muscle tissue and the effects it has in the body. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in human muscle and is supplemented because the body's natural glutamine levels are depleted during anaerobic exercise. It is argued that bodybuilders should supplement with glutamine, as deficiency may lead to a weakened immune system and wasting of muscle tissue.

During intense exercise the body produces lactic acid for energy. The lactate is used up for energy and the hydrogen is left, dropping the pH in the muscle, causing a ‘burning’ fatigue. One of the amino acids that your body uses to counteract this acidosis caused by the lactic acid is the glutamine in your bloodstream. In order to replenish the loss of glutamine in the bloodstream, the body catabolises glutamine from the muscle; so supplementing with glutamine ensures there is always a constant supply for the muscles.
