Viridian`s L-Glutamine is a convenient and economical powder with gut healing benefits. Glutamine has traditionally been considered a "non-essential" amino acid, but it may be "conditionally essential" under certain metabolic conditions such as exercise.
Amino acids are the building blocks that form body and dietary proteins. Twenty-two different amino acids occur in nature and have traditionally been grouped into two categories--nonessential and essential. Nonessential amino acids are made by the liver from general dietary protein intake and don`t have to be consumed directly. In contrast, essential amino acids cannot be made "from scratch" by the liver and therefore must come from diet or supplements to meet the body`s daily demands.
Glutamine crosses the blood/brain barrier readily and is converted into Glutamic acid in the brain. As a key neurotransmitter it may help promote normal mental function and alertness. Glutamine is the major source of energy for cells in the GI tract. The gut or any other of the mucous membranes respond exceptionally well to glutamine. It canalso offer a variety of benefits for athletes; through supporting muscle tissue maintenance, promoting normal stress responces, and immune support.
