MRM - L-Glutamine
L-Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in the body and is highly concentrated in the brain, intestinal mucosal cells, immune cells, skeletal and smooth muscles. In muscle tissue, the concentration of free glutamine appears to influence whether muscles will be broken down or built up. Maintaining high blood levels of glutamine inactivates glutamine synthetase so your body does not break down muscle tissue.
Glutamine is a prominent contributor to the functional integrity of the intestines and serves as an energy source for these highly active cells. Because the cells in our gut have a high turnover rate, glutamine is used to help build strong cell surfaces for better digestion and absorption. In addition, glutamine is also used as a fuel source for immune cells in response to foreign bodies.
