Although sodium may help with creatine transport, it generally has a cellular dehydrating effect.
This is from the osmotic pull of fluid into the vasculature, resulting in high blood pressure.
I doubt this effect is specific to glutamine, but it doesn’t seem like cellular glutamine levels have any effect on anabolism/anticatabolism in healthy people.
Hope this helps!
I read this statement in a popular publication.
“Don’t consume too much sodium, when sdium enter a muscle cell, it causes more glutamin to be released. Thereby reducing potential muscle growth”
There were no references.
I was always led to beleive that salt was good for volumizing a cell and enhancing Anabolism.[/quote]
