The amino acid glutamine plays a key role in the metabolism, function, and structure of the entire gastrointestinal (GI) tract and its extensive immune system. Many clinical studies support the fact that dietary and endogenous glutamine is critical in maintaining normal intestinal permeability, mucosal cell regeneration, and structure. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in the blood and is also involved in blood sugar stabilization, wound healing, protein metabolism, and ammonia detoxification. It is also concentrated in the brain, skeletal muscles, gut lining, lungs, heart, kidneys, & liver where it has multiple & critical functions.
Physiological stress, including the presence of intestinal infection, can cause serious depletion of glutamine levels needed by the immune cells which can result in muscle wasting as the body attempts to restore its levels from the skeletal tissues. Glutamine works best when taken with pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P5P) which helps regulates its absorption, metabolism & conversion.
