Glutamine – The Amazing Amino Acid

Glutamine – The Amazing Amino Acid

Many of us are intrigued with amino acids, like what do they do, how to select which one to use and how they interact with each other. One amino acid that should be on everyone’s radar is L-Glutamine.

L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and yes is concentrated in muscle tissue but also is found in other parts of the body. Before we explore why L-Glutamine is a great amino acid to add to your supplement routine, let’s look at amino acids as a whole category.

So what ARE amino acids? Amino acids are the building blocks of protein as well as important components supporting hormone and neurotransmitter production as well as supporting the immune system and gut health. Glutamine also supports the production of glutathione, an antioxidant found in the body. There are 20 basic amino acids, those that are essential (must be consumed) and those that are non-essential (that the body can synthesize utilizing essential amino acids). L-Glutamine is considered a non-essential amino acid, however, there are times when our body’s need for glutamine is greater than our ability to produce it.

Glutamine can be found in beef, fish, chicken, dairy, some vegetables, miso, tofu, grains and legumes. There are also L-Glutamine supplements available. Many people choose to take glutamine after working out to support muscle recovery. However, it’s important to select your glutamine supplement carefully, making sure it is of the highest quality.
