A professional L-Glutamine amino acid supplement.
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.
Glutamine participates in a wide variety of essential functions, including: optimal operation of the kidneys, pancreas, gall bladder, liver, the small and large intestines, and the brain. 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 bloodstream combined with the fact that it has two nitrogen side-chains is the reason for this. Furthermore, it is a precursor for the body's most powerful endogenous anti-oxidant, glutathione; it also plays a role in pituitary's GH production and seems to be important for proper glycogen deposition as well.
Characteristically glutamine is quickly depleted during the course of catabolic stress such as injury, infection, or even strenuous exercise. While the average person is likely to consume approximately 10 grams of glutamine daily, a conservative estimate for the needs of someone in such a stressful state is 20-40 grams of glutamine daily.
