Glutamine… The most abundant amino acid in the muscle. And because it is the most abundant amino acid in the muscle, it’s pretty darn important to its function and recovery! Most are familiar with the DOMS phenomenon, the delayed onset muscle soreness that leaves people struggling to navigate stairs, sit on toilets or walk in general… DOMS is no joke.

So in order to minimise the pain and discomfort associated with DOMS, Glutamine should be added to your supplement regime. With glutamine also being one of the main energy sources to white blood cells, you can reduce your risk of overtraining syndrome too!
