Glutamine Plus



What is Glutamine Plus?

Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid which can be helpful during times of performance stress,  health stress, supporting the bodies natural tissue maintenance systems and sustaining optimum immune function.

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body both in the blood and muscle tissue.  It is a vital amino acid that is required by every muscle in the body and is one of the most important building blocks in forming the proteins that maintains good cellular and tissue health. Although a non-essential amino acid, meaning that the body is able to produce small amounts, the majority of it must come from the diet. It is required for hypertrophy (developing muscle bulk) and also plays an important role in supporting the bodies ability to manage healthy tissue function.

In humans glutamine is considered useful to anyone undergoing training for endurance sports such as long distance running or cycling, and can help to reduce the incidence of cramps caused through repetitive strain. Although studies into the glutamine requirements of horses are few, there is strong evidence that glutamine levels may not be optimal in exercising horses.  Research has found that exercise in horses results in a drop in blood levels of glutamine to those which are considered deficiency levels for a human athlete, indicating that glutamine levels in equine athletes are borderline, at best.

Inadequate glutamine severely compromises the immune system at every level and also compromises the synthesis of the key anti-oxidant glutathionine.

When is glutamine supplementation useful?

  • Where horses are undergoing heavy exercise, supplementation can support healthy immune function.
  • when maintenance of healthy immune function and support of the bodies own immune defence system is required .
  • Supporting a healthy digestive lining by enabling the body to create strong structure of the epithelial cells in the gut wall.
