L-Glutamine – Powder, 200g
L-glutamine is an optically active form of glutamine having L-configuration. It has a role as an nitric oxide synthase inhibitor, a nutraceutical, a micronutrient, a human metabolite, a Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolite, an Escherichia coli metabolite and a mouse metabolite.
Glutamine is an α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. Its side chain is similar to that of glutamic acid, except the carboxylic acid group is replaced by an amide. It is classified as a charge-neutral, polar amino acid. It is non-essential and conditionally essential in humans, meaning the body can usually synthesize sufficient amounts of it, but in some instances of stress, the body’s demand for glutamine increases, and glutamine must be obtained from the diet.

What is L-Glutamine?Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid. Glutamine can donate the ammonia on its side chain to the formation of urea (for eventual excretion by the kidneys) and to purines (necessary for the synthesis of nucleic acids). Glutamic acid-to-glutamine conversion, in which an ammonia group is added to glutamic acid (catalyzed by glutamine synthase), is of central importance in the regulation of toxic levels of ammonia in the body. This agent is a substrate for the production of both excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters (glutamate and GABA) and is also an important source of energy for the nervous system. Glutamine may become a conditionally essential amino acid during certain catabolic states.
L-Glutamine Benefits and UsesStudies have shown that L-Glutamine may have the following benefits:
- Supports physical endurance
- May support the healing process after physical exertion
- Supports a robust immune system
- Promotes healthy digestive system
Additional Information on L-GlutamineL-Glutamine is a glutamine family amino acid, a proteinogenic amino acid, a glutamine and a L-alpha-amino acid. It is a conjugate base of a L-glutaminium. It is a conjugate acid of a L-glutaminate. It is an enantiomer of a D-glutamine. It is a tautomer of a L-glutamine zwitterion.
