While your body does produce Glutamine naturally, when you're running under extreme conditions your glutamine factory may not be able to keep up with how quickly your body is using it.
Also known as Glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter responsible for 90% of the synaptic connections in the brain.

Olive Leaf ( OLEA EUROPAEA L. )
One polyphenol found within green olive skin, and leaves from olive trees - Oleuropein - is used intravenously during some medical procedures to substantially reduce systolic and diastolic blood pressures. (32)
What's more - oleuropein has been shown to reduce the toxic aggregation of both amyloid beta and tau proteins in the brains of rats.
The benefits pronounced specifically in the substantia nigra region of the brain; the region most associated with age related neurological degeneration. (33)
Cinnamon Bark Extract ( Cinnamomum cassia )
Forty-one different volatile compounds have been identified in the bark oil of cinnamon, and vary significantly in concentrations depending on growth stages and segments of the tree.
Insulin-like activity has been seen in lab settings from highly concentrated polyphenol solutions extracted from cinnamon, and several of these polyphenols have been isolated.
One in-vitro study has shown an aqueous extract of one species of cinnamon can reduce tau aggregation and filament formation in neuronal brain cells.
In addition, another naturally occurring compound - CEppt - showed to significantly reduce formation of toxic amyloid proteins in mice models. (34)
Licorice Root Extract ( Glycyrrhiza glabra )
There's considerable agreement that Licorice Root stands as one of the oldest herbal remedies known to date.
Extracts of Licorice Root are commonly used in treating various skin conditions.
This is mainly due to the over 300 unique compounds contained in the root; a few posses anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory qualities beneficial to healthy skin. (35, 36)

Taking the form of a long-chain fatty acid, DHA has been used in the treatment inflammatory disorders such as PD and IBD - sparking the question of it's benefit in reducing inflammation elsewhere. (38)
The results of one study, involving 27 women taking 3,000 mg of DHA daily for a week, showed the women experienced 23% less muscle soreness after doing bicep curls than a placebo group. (39)
Vanadyl (as Vanadyl sulfate)
Osteoporosis and low bone mineral density affect millions of Americans.
The majority of adults in North America have insufficient intake of vitamin D and calcium along with inadequate exercise.
