Glutamine is an important amino acid with many bodily functions. It is a building block of protein and critical part of the immune system.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid produced in the body and is found in the muscles. Although normally synthesized in adequate amounts, endogenous glutamine production may be inadequate during periods of metabolic stress such as trauma, surgery, accidents, infections etc and, therefore, glutamine is considered a conditionally essential amino acid.
Glutamine is crucial for many metabolic functions, including protein and glutathione synthesis, energy production, maintenance of optimal antioxidant status, and immune function.
