L-Glutamine benefits are helpful for nervous, digestive, immune, and muscular systems. By producing energy needed by the brain, it can be used for memory loss, poor focus, and other impairment of cognitive functions. This L-Glutamine supplement is suggested for patients who are on long-term bed rest to prevent loss of muscle tone. It can also help body builders and figure conscious individuals in developing more muscle mass. This amino acid is a key to healthier intestines for more effective metabolism and absorption of nutrients. In children, it is critical for normal brain development and growth. Glutamine also reduces the occasions of flu and other seasonal infections. Medical uses of glutamine include treatment for mental retardation, liver cirrhosis, peptic ulcer, and alcoholism.

The body normally has enough levels of glutamine mainly found in the muscles, brain, liver, lungs, kidneys, and the linings of the intestines. It is regarded as conditionally essential amino acid since during stressful occasions, infections, and trauma, the body requires more glutamine than it can normally produce. It plays an important role in ensuring a positive nitrogen balance and is critical for rapidly growing cells in the immune and intestinal systems. It also serves as a precursor of nucleotides that forms part of both RNA and DNA. L-Glutamine deficiency leads to increased recurrences of infections and severe intestinal permeability or “leaky gut”, liver cirrhosis, and mental retardation in children. Supplemental L-Glutamine helps avoid complications from depleted levels of this conditionally essential amino acid.
