L-Glutamine, the natural form of glutamine, is needed for a wide range of repair and maintenance functions, such as wound healing, muscle and bone growth, digestive health and gut wall integrity.
It is widely used by people with various forms of digestive and intestinal problems, a strained immune system and by athletes following gruelling training routines (it breaks down uric acid from proteins).
L-Glutamine is a pure amino acid powder that is fermented from glucose and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Glutamine is one of the 20 amino acids, or “building blocks” of protein. It is a vital molecule that our body stores in the bloodstream and converts into glucose (blood sugar) when it is needed.

Protein and Amino Acids
Amino acids are the "building blocks" of protein. There are 20 of them, 12 of these building blocks can be made in the body, these are referred to as non-essential amino acids, the other 8 building blocks are known as essential amino acids (these must be sourced from the diet).
Protein helps make up the structure of all the cells and tissues in the body, these include internal organs, muscle tissue, tendons, skin, hair and nails.
Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid and is the most abundant free amino acid in muscle cells.
It is a molecule that our body stores in the skeletal muscles and bloodstream and converts into glucose (blood sugar) when it is needed.
L-Glutamine, the natural form of glutamine, is synthesised from 3 other amino acids: ornithine, arginine and proline. It is also a component of glutathione, a nutrient present in virtually every cell.
Our body's own levels of glutamine can come under strain in circumstances of metabolic stress, including injuries, illness and even severe emotional distress.
