L-Glutamine Powder from Now Foods is a 100% pure, free-form, non-essential, amino acid and is the highest grade possible.

Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, the body may require more glutamine than it can produce. Under these circumstances glutamine may be considered a conditionally essential amino acid*.

Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (an anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (immune system lymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes). In addition, glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance and a nitrogen transporter.*

L-Glutamine is the only amino acid that can easily cross the blood-brain barrier. Once in the brain, glutamine is converted into L-glutamic acid, known simply as glutamic acid. While glucose is the brains primary source of energy, the brain can utilize glutamic acid as a backup fuel.*

Glutamine may provide important support for gastrointestinal health.* Glutamine supports restoring the health of mucous membranes inside the colon (large intestine)*. Unlike other amino acids that have a single nitrogen atom, glutamine contains two nitrogen atoms that enable it to transfer nitrogen and support removing ammonia from body tissues, regulating blood pH and providing support for those with peptic ulcers.*

Glutamine supplementation may support reducing stomach issues caused by chemotherapy and may be useful in cases of diarrhea*. The body often cannot synthesize enough glutamine to assist in wound repair, preserve lean tissue and nourish the immune system following major surgery or physical stress. Providing supplemental glutamine may support speeding repair, and improving overall surgical recovery.*

Glutamine may support inhibiting fatty buildups inside the liver and also has been used to support curbing the desire to drink alcohol. L-glutamine, preferably with just a touch of non-sugar sweetener, may provide support for reducing cravings for sugar.*

The National Institute of Mental Health has acknowledged glutamines influence on sugar cravings. By providing support for preserving lean tissue, this amino acid supports cleansing the body of waste products that are created by fat metabolism, thus supporting proper weight maintenance*

Prolonged exercise may cause microscopic injuries to the muscles and, for a long as two weeks after a workout, lower the bodys glutamine stores.*
