100% Pure - Free Form Highest Grade Available Supports Muscle Mass* Vegetarian Product Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, the body may require more glutamine than it can produce. Under these circumstances glutamine may be considered a "conditionally essential" amino acid.
Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (an anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (immune system lymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes). In addition, glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance and a nitrogen transporter.* NOW® L-Glutamine Powder is a 100% pure, free-form, non-essential, amino acid and is the highest grade available.
