-Supports a Healthy Immune System*
-Aids Exercise Recovery*
How it Works:
L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. Although considered nonessential, it is an important constituent of proteins. It is the preferred fuel for rapidly dividing cells of the immune system and can serve as a precursor for glucose production by the liver.* In addition, L-Glutamine supports healthy nitrogen balance by helping to regulate protein turnover, as well as by acting as a nitrogen reservoir for the production of other amino acids.* Although it can be readily synthesized in skeletal muscles and other tissues, a growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, such as during intense exercise, the body may require more L-Glutamine than it can produce.* Under these circumstances, L-Glutamine may be considered a “conditionally essential” amino acid.*
