Glutamine is an important amino acid with numerous functions in the body. It is a building block of protein and an important part of the immune system. It also plays an important role in intestinal health (1). Although we make glutamine in our bodies, physical stress such as sports and training push our glutamine demand beyond our own supply so we must seek additional glutamine through foods or supplementation (2). Due to this, active individuals and athletes should consider taking in additional glutamine. Research suggests that glutamine supplementation is useful when recovering from inflammation and muscular injury caused by intense aerobic or otherwise exhaustive exercise (3).
Arginine is an amino acid used in the biosynthesis of proteins and is the precursor of nitric oxide, an important signalling molecule that also plays an important role in vasodilation and blood pressure regulation (4). Arginine also plays a role in immune system maintenance, wound healing and cell division (5). There is evidence that arginine supplementation can improve physical performance which is likely through increased nitric oxide production which in turn improves blood flow to the muscles (6).
