Glutamine, the most abundant amino acid in the body, helps form other amino acids, glucose, protein, and glutathione. Glutamine is stored in the muscles and is the primary metabolic fuel for the cells of the small intestine, fibroblasts, and the immune system. Supplementation with glutamine can help support gut cell proliferation and mucosal integrity, resulting in decreased intestinal permeability and systemic infections.

Uses For l-Glutamine
Gastrointestinal Health: In the gut, glutamine maintains healthy integrity of the intestinal tract and enhances the protective mucosal lining. This helps to ensure proper nutrient utilization and absorption while limiting the amount of toxins that pass through the intestinal barrier.*
Muscle Support and Recovery: l-Glutamine provides potential support for muscle function and glycogen replenishment following exercise. In addition, its effects on immune function may support post exercise recovery and resistance.*
