Glutamine is an amino acid that helps build and maintain the muscles of the body. It is also useful in eliminating toxic substances such as ammonia from the liver and helps maintain a healthy central nervous system. Glutamine deficiency is common in today's busy lifestyle, making its supplementation increasingly popular both in sports as well as in medical practice. During periods of extreme stress, trauma or simply intense sports training, Glutamine deficiency takes place and it becomes increasingly evident as manifested by decreased strength, stamina and recovery, which takes anywhere up to six days to return to normal levels. Glutamine assists with blood sugar control and plays a major role in synthesizing muscle protein and cell-volumizing. It also enhances mental function by promoting the synthesis of GABA and keeps the intestinal lining intact. It is also a primary source of energy for the immune system.
