What Is L Glutamine

Not many people know what L-Glutamine is. It is found in human muscle and palsma. L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. A little over 60% of the free floating amino acid in skeletal muscle cells is made of it. It also moves the nitrogen around in the body. Having and maintaining a good nitrogen level is necessary for building muscle. L-Glutamine plays important roles in the human body. It helps with the production and breakdown of protein. It regulates the acid-base balance in the kidney's. Besides moving nitrogen around in the body, L-Glutamine also moves carbon around. Cellular energy is affected by the levels of L-Glutamine in the body.  90% of L-Glutamine produced in the body is from muscle mass. It is also released by the lungs and brain, but in small amounts.  The cells of the intestines, the kidney cells, activated immune cells, and cancer cells are the parts of the body which consume a lot of L-Glutamine. Several different glutamine similar acids have been known to be anti-cancer drugs. Bodybuilders and people who do intense workouts usually take L-Glutamine supplemtents to replace what the body used up during their workouts. People don't necessarily have to take supplements to replace the depletion of it in the body. Dietary sources of L-Glutamine include, but is not limited to, the following: beef, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, dairy products, wheat, cabbage, beets, beans, spinach, and parsley. Fermented foods and vegetable juices also have L-Glutamine in them but in small amounts.
