Strengthen and defend yourself against stress and muscle fatigue!*. What is L-glutamine? L-glutamine is an amino acid found in the body in a proportionally high amount compared to other amino acids. Scientists consider L-glutamine to be a conditionally essential amino acid meaning its intake is not normally required in the diet. L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in blood plasma and a major transporter of nitrogen. It is an important precursor for protein synthesis and it supports cellular functions of all types. L-glutamine is also a precursor of L-glutamate (an amino acid involved in energy metabolism). How does L-glutamine support health? Assists in the process of exercise recovery and helps maintain nitrogen/ammonia balance for better muscle metabolism.*. Helps maintain normal function of the entire gastrointestinal tract.*. Under physiological stress L-glutamine may have to be supplied by diet to maintain normal gut liver immune and muscle function.*. Why choose Vitacost L-Glutamine?

"We started taking L-Glutamine because we were dieting. We were referred to L-Glutamine because it is supposed to be necessary when we are not taking in as many calories. What we have discovered is L-Glutamine does make a difference in our daily lives. Our minds work better and longer. 1000 mg is what was recommended to us. We purchase from Vitacost because they are way cheaper than your local health food store."
"I had heard that L-Glutamine was helpful at reducing carb cravings and that was why I purchased it. I think it is great at keeping me in control of what I eat. I had taken it for a week or so and was then out of town and hadn't brought enough and I definitely noticed a difference on the days I didn't have it. Wish the pills were a little smaller, but otherwise I will be buying it again!"
