Glutamine is an important amino acid and the most abundant free amino acid in the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Glutamine is produced in the muscles and is distributed by the blood to the organs that need it. Glutamine might help gut function, the immune system and other essential processes in the body, especially in times of stress. It is also important for providing "fuel" (nitrogen and carbon) to many different cells in the body. Glutamine is needed to make other chemicals in the body such as other amino acids and glucose (sugar).
During intense training, glutamine levels are greatly depleted in your body, which decreases strength, endurance and recovery. It can literally take up to six days for levels of this amino acid to return to normal. Glutamine also is important in protein synthesis and studies have shown that supplementation can minimize the breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism.
