Description:Known as the most common and most prevalent amino acid in the human bloodstream, L-glutamine is found in high levels in many body tissues such as skeletal muscles, the lungs, liver, and gastrointestinal system. Muscles contain the highest concentration of this amino acid, storing and transferring the compound to other tissues as needed. Glutamine is critical for providing the fuel needed in the gastrointestinal system, particularly in the cells that line the interior of the small intestine by which nutrients are absorbed.
Many factors can compromise the normal function and levels of L-glutamine. Infection, injury, poor nutrition, and cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy can all reduce the absorption of vital nutrients by lowering glutamine levels in the gut. L-glutamine supplements can improve function and promote overall health. Our L-Glutamine powder, contained in vegetarian capsules, is easy to use and supports digestive health, immune system effectiveness, and nutrient absorption for those who may have deficiencies.
