L-Glutamine - 120 Veggie Capsules
Glutamine is one of the 20 fundamental amino acids involved in protein synthesis, and it is also the most abundant, forming approximately one-fifth of the amino acid pool circulating in the human bloodstream. It is classified as “non-essential” because it can be synthesized from another amino acid, namely glutamic acid. The significance of glutamine, however, cannot be overstated, as it is critical for a wide variety of essential functions, including: optimal operation of the kidneys, pancreas, gall bladder, liver, the small and large intestines, and the brain. Furthermore, it is a precursor for what is arguably the body’s most powerful endogenous anti-oxidant, glutathione; it also plays a role in growth hormone production and seems to be important for proper glycogen deposition as well. Maintaining Nitrogen Balance Glutamine is also the most important of all amino acids in maintaining nitrogen balance within the body, accounting for a full one-third of all amino acid nitrogen transported in the human bloodstream. Although all amino acids release an atom of nitrogen into the bloodstream after they are broken down in the liver, glutamine’s higher concentration in the bloodsteam combined with the fact that it has two nitrogen side-chains is the reason for this.
