It is the most abundant amino acid in the plasm and in the musculature. It takes place in the muscle starting from other amino acids (glutamic sour, valina and isoleucina), for what it is not consider essential or dispensable.
The amino acids non essentials are those that the body takes place starting from nitrogen (amino acids) and hydrates of carbon.
The glutamine is a fundamental element to avoid the consequences of an excessively hard and lingering training.
The intense and lingering training produces a great fatigue and corporal deterioration for the great destruction of fabrics, what can derive in a chronic state of fatigue known as overtraining that diminishes the yield and it can produce illness or lesions.
Under extreme conditions of work or stress, the hydrate of the cells passes to a second plan regarding other biological more important processes for the survival.
If it diminishes the hydrate, the cells lose volume and,in this context, they stop to produce replacement substances for the waste, among them proteins and glucogen, being devoted rather to the destruction of these.
This intense catabolism (the process for which cells and fabrics are destroyed), degrades to the muscular fabric and it drains the sportsman energetically.
It has been associated the overtraining and all the consequences of the intense training with a decrease of the glutamine levels in blood.
The glutamine allows the recovery of the muscular and hepatic out glucogen after the training.
We will continue with the influence of the glutamine in the organism…
