Benefits of Glutamine on Athletes

Glutamine is a very powerful amino acid that has a wide arrange of benefits for sports performance and human health and researchers from Spain tested the effect of 6 grams of glutamine per day, during 20 days on muscle damage markers on basketball players.

They found that the glutamine supplementation significantly decreased:

  • aspartate transaminase
  • creatine kinase
  • myoglobin

Which suggests less muscle damage compared to the placebo group.

They also found that cortisol levels did not increase in the supplemented group during the time of the study.
