What is L-Glutamine?
L-Glutamine is an amino acid. L-glutamine is the most abundant, naturally
occurring, non-essential amino acid in muscle tissue. In fact, 60 percent of free-form amino acids found in
skeletal muscles are L-glutamine. It plays a major role in protein synthesis. In states of illness or injury,
L-glutamine becomes conditionally essential, which means the body requires intake from food or supplements.
Glutamine helps fuel two very important brain neurotransmitters, GABA and glutamic acid,
thus enhancing brain function.
During intense workouts, the body uses a great deal of glutamine. The
immune system also relies heavily on glutamine. Therefore, the intake of glutamine keeps the system from taking
glutamine from the muscles for use elsewhere and so prevents muscle breakdown (known as catabolism).
Increased glutamine consumption also provides a meaningful increase in growth hormone levels.

Where can I get L-Glutamine?
Dietary sources of L-Glutamine include beans, fish, eggs, spinach,
beef, chicken, dairy products, beets, parsley, wheat, cabbage, vegetable juices and miso soup. You can also get
L-glutamine as a supplement:
Although you can purchase L-Glutamine as a standalone supplement, it makes more sense to
us if you ingest it as part of a more complete homeopathic supplement that not only includes L-Glutamine, but a
suite of other ingredients that act together to improve performance and combat aging:
(Ingredients include: Alpha-GPC, GABA, Glycine, L-Arginine, L-Dopa bean extract,
L-Glutamine, L-Isoleucine, L-Tyrosine, L-Valine, L-Lysine, Moomiyo extract and Ornithine alpha
