Nutrient - L-Glutamine

By Nutri People

L-glutamine gives fuel to the brain and digestive tract lining, particularly the villi (tiny ‘fingers’ that absorb nutrients). It converts to pyroglutamate, a brain chemical, which enhances memory, learning and brain function. L-glutamine changes to GABA, a brain chemical, which helps relax and calm. GABA changes to glutamic acid (glutamate), a powerful brain fuel and part of glucose tolerance factor (GTF). L-glutamine breaks down uric acid (a chemical made from protein breakdown), thereby protecting against harmful ammonia. It helps support a healthy immune system, especially after illness and intense exercise, and helps make DNA.
