Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is involved in many metabolic processes. Since it easily passes through the blood-brain barrier, it is also known as a superb brain fuel. Glutamine is converted to Glutamic Acid in the brain, which is essential for cerebral functions, and increases the amount of GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid), required for brain functioning and mental activity. Glutamine is used in the muscles for the synthesis of muscle proteins, and is of use for the treatment of wasting muscles after illness or post-operative care. Skeletal muscles are the primary sites of Glutamine concentration. This is an excellent supplement used in conjunction with a sports training program or a lifestyle requiring prolonged physical exertion. For athletes, maximal results will be obtained by supplementing (2 grams/2,000 milligrams) of Glutamine after exercising. In animal research L-Glutamine has anti-inflammatory effects.
