Glutamine is the most abundant, naturally occurring amino acid in the human body. It constitutes more than 60% of the amino acids found in skeletal muscle and is the most concentrated free amino acid in the blood. Glutamine can be used as a building block for making more proteins (i.e. muscle), a direct energy source for making ATP (the energy currency of the body) or as a precursor for the formation of glucose in the liver.
While skeletal muscle tissue is responsible for synthesizing ~90% of the glutamine found in the body, the most eager consumers of glutamine are the gut, kidneys and immune system. Glutamine is, therefore, supportive for a variety of biochemical functions ranging from protein synthesis to intestinal permeability, optimal immune function and the regulation of the body’s acid-base balance.
Importantly, glutamine is considered a conditionally essential amino acid meaning it can be made within the body but requires intake from food or supplements under high stress conditions such as intense exercise and food restriction.*
Directions For Glutamine: As a dietary supplement mix 1 scoop with 8-10 ounces of water or your favorite beverage 1 to 2 times daily.
Warnings: DO NOT EXCEED THE RECOMMENDED SERVING SUGGESTION. Consult a physician prior to use if you have any medical conditions. Do not use if you are pregnant or lactating. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
