VPA L-Glutamine Powder is very important amino acid due to the role in plays in maintaining gut health and immune system health. It is one of the 20 amino acid and considered to be “conditionally essential” which means our need for it increases under certain circumstances and we may need to supplement with it during these times.

L-glutamine is very important during times of illness, following physical trauma or extreme exercise. It is also important for those that suffer inflammatory diseases such as Crohns disease. L-glutamine and glutamine are slightly different compounds, and glutamine supplements are always in the form L-glutamine. In terms if the benefits, there is no difference between the two forms.

Features and Benefits:

Glutamine is the preferred fuel and energy source of the cells that line our gastrointestinal tract. Supplementing with L-glutamine helps maintain the health and integrity of our gut.

VPA L-Glutamine Powder assists in repair and recovery after heavy training loads. Heavy training loads including endurance exercise and heavy weight-lifting cause physical trauma to our bodies which needs to be repaired and assists in repair and recovery after heavy training loads.

L-glutamine supports immunity. L-glutamine supplementation positively impacts the production of Immunoglobulin A (IgA) which is an important part of our immune system.

Prolonged endurance exercise increases your likelihood of falling ill. This may be associated with a decrease in blood glutamine levels that occurs immediately following endurance exercise. Taking a L-glutamine supplement decreases the rate at which endurance athletes fall ill with upper respiratory infections.

Gut health, and therefore our overall health, relies on our gastrointestinal tract being as healthy as possible enabling our physiological systems to run as they should. The health and integrity of the cells that line our gut are imperative to allowing the absorption of nutrients while keeping pathogens from entering our blood stream.

When our gut health declines, we experience chronic inflammation and a decline in glandular cells that produce the digestive enzymes protective mucous. These changes increase the permeability of our digestive tract, and this is sometimes known as leaky gut. Supplementing with L-glutamine improves the integrity of our gut, and can improve leaky gut.


For optimal results, consume 1 serve before or directly after training in 100ml of water.
