Solgar L-Glutamine 500mg is one of Solgar's premium-quality amino acids.
Glutamine, usually available in the form of L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. Most glutamine is stored in muscle tissues where much of the glutamine is made. While our body can make enough glutamine for its regular needs, glutamine is easily depleted during strenuous activity, injuries, surgery and infections. In these cases, taking a glutamine supplement may be helpful.
Glutamine readily passes the blood-brain barrier and, within the brain, is converted to glutamic acid, which the brain needs to function properly. Aside from generally providing an energy source for the brain, glutamic acid is thought to play a role in mental alertness and perhaps even memory enhancement. It also increases the amount of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which is needed to sustain proper brain function and mental activity.
Glutamine helps to protect the lining of the gastrointestinal tract and may help to promote the repair of gut lining. Studies also show that the addition of glutamine may help to improve gut barrier function, as well as immune activity in the gut.
The gastrointestinal tract has a large number of immune cells along its length, including fibroblasts, lymphocytes and macrophages. The ability of glutamine to nourish these immune cells may account for its positive impact on the gastrointestinal tract and immunity. Healing of surgical wounds, trauma injuries and burns is accomplished in part by the actions of these immune cells. Their proper functioning is dependent on glutamine as a metabolic fuel for growth and proliferation. Therefore, a depletion of intracellular glutamine can slow growth of these immune cells and ultimately prolong healing.
Glutamine may be helpful in preventing muscle breakdown, increase protein synthesis, and elevate human growth hormone secretion. It is used by endurance and strength athlete for faster recovery along with faster muscle growth. As glutamine plays an important role in keeping the immune system strong, glutamine supplementation may be helpful in endurance athletes to reduce the risk of catching a cold after an athletic event.
