Something Natural - L-Glutamine 250g & 500g
What is glutamine?
Glutamine is the most abundant of amino acids in the human body and its main storage site is in the musculature – about 60% of unbound muscular amino acids are glutamine.
The body can manufacture glutamine from nutrients and under normal circumstances the amount glutamine produced by the body is sufficient; but in certain circumstances, such as when the body is under conditions of stress, surgery, injury or illness, glutamine is released from the muscles into circulation and the amount of glutamine produced by the body may not be adequate to suit the needs during these times and immune function may consequently be compromised as a result.
Dietary glutamine can be found in meats, dairy products, wheat, beans, soy, spinach, parsley and cabbage. When additional glutamine is required, as mentioned above, glutamine supplementation should be administered.
