L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. Amino acids are building blocks for organs and tissues. L-Glutamine becomes conditionally essential during times of extreme stress. This is especially true after heavy exercise, where it supplies fuel such as nitrogen and carbon to cells and tissues and helps maintain an anabolic (building) state, acting as fuel for rapidly growing cells such as immune cells, muscle cells, and digestive tract cells. L-Glutamine helps maintain a proper acid-alkaline balance through its functions as a nitrogen transporter. It also helps the body remove ammonia, a common waste product of muscle function.†

The Science Behind L-Glutamine
Research from the International Journal of Molecular Sciences explains how supplementation with L-Glutamine helps to support intestinal health and integrity in humans. L-Glutamine promotes the rapid growth and increase of healthy intestinal cells, regulates tight junction proteins (the tight sealing of the gut lining), suppresses pro-inflammatory signaling pathways, and protects cells against apoptosis and cellular stresses. 
Research from the Journal of Dietary Supplements states that supplementation with L-Glutamine helps to preserve muscle and helps with muscle function in humans. L-Glutamine supports muscle health and proper inflammatory processes. Previous studies provide evidence for improvement in body composition with dietary supplementation of L-Glutamine among older adults. 
Research from Nutrients explains how supplementation with L-Glutamine helps to support the immune system in humans. In health and disease, the rate of glutamine consumption by immune cells is similar or greater than glucose. L-Glutamine release to the circulation and availability is mainly controlled by major metabolic organs, such as the gut, liver, and skeletal muscles. During illnesses and injury glutamine can become essential for metabolic function. L-Glutamine is considered a non-essential amino acid that may become essential during times of high stress, injury or illness.
