A atividade fisica intensa desencadeia uma serie de reacoes metabolicas que podem levar ao catabolismo muscular para a producao de energia. O mesmo pode ser dito as outras causas de estresse fisico, como as infeccoes, e ao jejum/desnutricao. Para evitar o catabolismo muscular e promover a sintese proteica, os mecanismos envolvidos nesses processos devem estar nutridos adequadamente. A glutamina e um aminoacido com funcoes anabolicas, sendo que existe uma correlacao direta entre a taxa de…

Enteral glutamine spares endogenous glutamine in chronic acidosis.
To test this, Sprague-Dawley rats weighing between 250 and 350 g were pair-fed elemental diets supplemented with GLN 4.9 g/L (GLN-ED) or an equivalent mixture of neutral amino acids substituted for GLN (ED), and both liver and muscle GLN were elevated.
Glutamine transport and its metabolic effects.
Evidence for a regulatory role of amino acid transporters under certain physiological and pathophysiological circumstances is presented and attention is focused upon the properties and regulatory modulation of System Nm, the transporter with the highest capacity for transmembrane glutamine exchange in rat and human skeletal muscle.
Changes of magnesium concentrations in endurance athletes.
The significant increase of mean erythrocitary Mg concentration observed in the athletes after physical strain and the decrease in the same subjects after the effort suggest that athletes suffer from a Mg deficiency, partially due to physical exercise.
Glutamine kinetics in burn patients. Comparison with hormonally induced stress in volunteers.
A failure of muscle to augment de novo glutamine synthesis and support the conclusion that glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid during critical illness are suggested.

This review describes the scope, complexity, and magnitude of host nutritional responses throughout the course of an infectious process. These responses include prominent changes in nitrogen and
Impact of magnesium supplementation on performance data in young swimmers.
No significant differences in performance data was found either in the laboratory or during competition after supplementation with Mg, and student's t test and analyses of variance revealed no significant differences.
