Finlandia provides L-Glutamine in a convenient, cost-effective powder form. L-Glutamine is one of the 20 fundamental amino acids involved in protein synthesis, and it is also the most abundant, forming approximately one-fifth of the amino acid pool circulating in the human bloodstream. It is classified as ”non-essential”, because it can be synthesized from another amino acid, glutamic acid.
The significance of L-Glutamine however cannot be overstated, as it is critical for a wide variety of essential functions, including optimal operation of the kidneys, pancreas, gall bladder, liver, the small and large intestine, and the brain.
It is found in high concentration in skeletal muscle and lung, liver, brain, and gastrointestinal tissues. Skeletal muscle contains the greatest intracellular concentration of L-Glutamine, and therefore is the primary storage depot and exporter of L-Glutamine to other tissues. However, the gastrointestinal tract is the greatest user of L-Glutamine in the body because glutamine provides the primary fuel for the nutrient-absorbing cells that line the walls of the small intestine.
L-Glutamine helps support immune and digestive system health after periods of physical stress. L-Glutamine also helps to assist in muscle cell repair after exercise. Furthermore, it is a precursor for what is arguably the body‘s most powerful endogenous antioxidant, glutathione.
