Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (building block of protein) in the body. The body can usually make enough glutamine for its regular needs.
Most glutamine is stored in muscles and the lungs, where much of the glutamine is made.
Glutamine is important for removing excess ammonia, which is a waste by product in the body. It also helps your immune system function and appears to be needed for normal brain function and digestion.
Certain situations will increase our requirements for glutamine.
Intense exercise, injuries, surgery, infections, and prolonged stress, can lower our glutamine levels, In these cases, taking a individual glutamine supplement or using an amino matrix like AMINOpulse™ by DYNAMIS will help.
