Glutamine is well known as a sports supplement used to preserve muscle tissue as its a building block for muscle growth and repair. However glutamine is also required in large amounts in the brain and digestive tract. Glutamine is considered “conditionally essential” meaning it becomes essential when an individual faces disease, trauma or muscle wasting.
It has been shown to be beneficial in a number of health conditions including:
- Improving gastrointestinal health
- Leaky gut
- Stomach ulcers
- Muscle wasting
Glutamine can be found in animal proteins and plant sources such as beans, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower and red cabbage. The foods with the most L glutamine can be found in our store including
