L-Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid. It is manufactured in the body from glutamate and ammonia by the enzyme glutamine synthetase and stored in the muscles.
Glutamine becomes depleted during exercise, especially in endurance sports and bodybuilding. It is released from the muscles to replenish any deficit. A deficiency of glutamine is related to muscle wasting.
The cells of the intestines are the hungriest of all for glutamine, where they are involved in repair processes. (Brosnan 2003)
However glutamine is important for the liver, kidneys and immune system and lowered plasma glutamine concentrations are a result of demand exceeding supply; for example as a result of injury, burns, infection, endurance exercise and in an over trained athlete (Calder and Yagoob 1999).
