Glutamine is one of the 20 amino acids, or “building
blocks” of protein. It is a vital molecule that our body
stores in the bloodstream and converts into glucose
(blood sugar) when it is needed.
L-Glutamine, the natural form of glutamine, is
needed for a wide range of repair and maintenance
functions, such as wound healing, muscle and bone
growth, digestive health and gut wall integrity.
This is a pure amino acid powder,used by people
with various forms of digestive and intestinal prob-
lems (such as leaky gut syndrome and food intoler-
ance reactions), a strained immune system and by
athletes following gruelling training routines (it
breaks down uric acid from proteins). It can also be
used by people for recuperation purposes,for exam-
ple following surgery, or any time the body is placed
under unusual strain.
Paradoxically, this supplement is ideal for both the
very fit and the very sick.
