One-Stop BulkL-Glutamine Powder
L-Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid that plays a vital role in protein synthesis building blocks. The compound is also an important source of energy in body cells and is a principal carrier of the chemical nitrogen in the human body.
The CAS number of the compound is 56-85-9 and its molecular formula is C5H10N2O3. The molecular weight of the product is 146.14 g/mol. Other names for the product include Glutamine, 2-Amino-4-carbamoylbutanoic acid, glutamide, ENDARI, and 2,5-Diamino-5-oxopentanoic acid.
The product has a whitish powder appearance and is generally soluble in water. It is usually packed in 1kg or 25kg packaging for bulk purchases. When bought in bulk, it is placed in 25-kilogram paper drums with two layers of poly bags inside.
L-Glutamine vs. Glutamine
While used interchangeably, the terms L-glutamine and glutamine are different in certain aspects. Primarily, these compounds differ in terms of chemical structure.
L-Glutamine is an isomer of glutamine. As such, the arrangement of atoms in the molecule of L-Glutamine is slightly different from that of glutamine. Nevertheless, there is no significant difference between the said compounds in terms of health effects among individual users.
The L-glutamine powder comes in various specifications from ingredient suppliers like Nutriavenue. Typical specifications available from our company include micronized l-glutamine powder and pharmaceutical-grade l-glutamine powder.
The product may be shipped to your location through the air, sea, or couriers like UPS and FedEx when you buy from our company. When you buy in lesser quantities, the product may be packed in a bag with a net weight of 1 kilogram. However, if you avail of the product in bulk, it is usually packed in 25-kilogram drums.
Micronized L-Glutamine vs. L-Glutamine
Micronized L-glutamine is a recently manufactured form of L-glutamine which is characterized primarily as having finer particles. It has the same CAS number, molecular formula and molecular weight as that of the common L-glutamine form.
Many manufacturers prefer the use of Micronized L-glutamine as it is shown to have improved solubility and rapid absorbability. Thus, the body can absorb the product and use it more easily than the ordinary form of the product. Micronized L-glutamine is better and more advantageous.
BCAA Powder with L-Glutamine
BCAA powder or Branched-Chain Amino Acids refers to three of the nine essential amino acids which are found in protein-rich foods. These amino acids are leucine, isoleucine and valine.
Many manufacturers have combined BCAA powder and L-glutamine in their formulations as the said combination is shown to boost muscle endurance and aid in the growth and recovery of muscles after a rigorous workout. This is because of the resulting synergistic effect between the compounds.
L-Glutamine Manufacturing Process
L-glutamine is usually manufactured through fermentation using a fermentation microorganism as raw material. Some of the processes involved in producing the desired product include fermentation, crude isolation where impurities are removed from the fermentation broth, and final purification to ensure product purity and quality.
Some of the benefits of using L-glutamine powder include the following
For weight loss
Several pieces of research conducted by experts support the claim that the compound L-Glutamine may work for weight loss. This is because it alters the composition of the gut microbiome which results in enhanced digestion and effective weight management. In addition, studies also show that the compound may enhance insulin sensitivity. Thus, it promotes the use of insulin by the body which eventually results in weight loss.
For muscle recovery
The compound is proven to boost users’ muscle recovery and endurance engagement to extraneous workouts. Thus, users do not feel exhausted for long periods of time.
For gut health
Research also reveals that L-glutamine may support gut health as it enhances the balance of microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract.
Minimize muscle breakdown & Improve protein synthesis
As an amino acid, L-Glutamine is proven to improve protein synthesis. As such, it enhances muscle repair and minimizes muscle breakdown during workouts.
Support immune function
Studies show that L-glutamine may also support the immune system by reducing infections and fighting off viruses and bacteria that attack body cells.
Be a nitrogen transporter
L-glutamine also plays a significant role as a principal nitrogen carrier in the body. This is one mechanism of how it enhances muscle growth.
L-Glutamine Side Effects
Taking L-glutamine dietary supplements is not necessarily associated with severe side effects. Nevertheless, some users may experience mild symptoms following the use of the compound which usually involves the gastrointestinal tract. Users who experience serious adverse reactions are advised to discontinue the use of the compound and consult their physicians.
The recommended dosages for L-glutamine supplementation may vary depending on the individual user’s weight, age, and overall physical condition. Most experts suggest the use of 2 to 5 grams of the compound. However, dosages up to 40 grams are said to be considered safe.
The L-Glutamine powder is sold at prices ranging from USD 10/kg to USD 15/kg.
When availing of the product from Nutriavenue, free samples may be given upon customers’ request for customers to be able to check product quality and purity before placing their orders. Customers may also avail of bulk pricing upon different quantities.
