L-Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in the body and is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. Cellular concentrations are roughly four times higher than they are in the plasma. Most tissues are capable of producing glutamine of their own accord. Nonetheless, only the skeletal muscles, lungs, brain and adipose tissue are capable of producing large quantities of glutamine that can subsequently enter the bloodstream. Due to their considerable mass, the skeletal muscles easily account for the majority of glutamine supply. It also plays a role in repairing the endothelial lining of the gastrointestinal system.
Dosing: Use ¼ to ½ teaspoonful in water three to four times a day, or as directed by your healthcare professional. Caution in Type II diabetes and cancer.
