L-Glutamine 500 mg
L-Glutamine 500 mg capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contain 500 mg of pure crystalline L-glutamine (USP).
The amino acid glutamine plays a key role in the metabolism, structure, and function of the entire gastro- intestinal (GI) tract and its extensive immune system. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in blood, and is a vehicle for nitrogen transport. In muscle, lung and other tissues, glutamine is formed from glutamic acid and ammonia through amino acid breakdown.
The GI tract, liver, and immune system use glutamine for the synthesis of nucleotides, proteins, and amino sugars. Glutamine also carries potentially toxic ammonia to the kidneys for excretion, which helps maintain normal acid-base balance. Many clinical studies support the fact that dietary and endogenous glutamine is crucial in maintaining normal function of the entire gastrointestinal tract, including the liver and pancreas.
L-glutamine capsules may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who wish to increase their intake of dietary glutamine.
